Voxengo GlissEQ is a SEVERELY underrated and unsung plugin. The music I make (and those of others I record) is often heavy on acoustic guitar and I find it one of the more challenging sound sources to EQ (especially on less than ideal spaces). GlissEQ very quickly and easily dealt with those problems for me.
The fastest EQ plugins to get a good sound out of, in my experience, are usually the Neve or API emulations, with stepped frequencies (I use RRS plugins). I may be speaking too soon but GlissEQ can be just as fast as those plugins, more versatile, and definitely can sound more natural. Want to get some warmth? Boost the low end where you're hearing the need for it, and it won't get boomy on you. Dynamic EQ isn't just for notching resonances, and GlissEQ is one of the best. The sounds you can get out of it are simply beautiful and very impressive. I love it.
Nothing comes close to the Elephant's release settings. That thing can give you punch and loudness at the same time...
Elephant is my goto Final Limiter since... i cannot remember how long. It is on every masters I do. From Carl Craig to Moodymann to ProleteR to.... Everywhere.
I just want to sincerely thank you for your work on TEOTE. I have been mixing with a "spectrum flattening" + post eq workflow on buses and masters for a while, previously using "smart" functions in EQ's. The possibilities TEOTE offers to my mixing style and the sound quality are incredible. As far as mixing and mastering goes, this is the most special plugin I have come across. I have found it to be very useful in sound design as well. It truly frees you to focus on the creative elements and saves a lot of time, while providing an amazing sound.
Thanks again for your products
Slick GUI, variety of settings, great sound, competitive price. I honestly couldn't have asked for more. Here's a quick review.
- What I like:
All Voxengo plugins have signature GUI which is very convenient and modern-looking, plus it allows me to quickly and easily find and adjust settings on different Voxengo plugins without the need to readapt to another GUI. I consider it a huge advantage over many other developers who simply copy hardware interface with rust and screws and all, without adapting it to "modern world".
Sound-wise it's also great and flexible, nothing to add here.
- What I'd add to this plugin:
Visual representation of tape EQs which are available in this plugin. It can be like a floating window when you scroll between impulse modes, just to get a basic idea of what different modes do (I know it's displayed in the manual, but it would still be a nice addition, I think).
I try to avoid and have working at the same times, 2 Reason senses (Audition and Vision).
But when my Audition is a bit lost, Vision comes in and SPAN Plus is always laying at the back of my session.
It helps me to work faster and get back on tracks quicker.
When my students ask me a good Analyzer I say : SPAN.
