I have had a 'bedroom studio' for the last few years and when it came time to look for mixing and mastering tools outside of Logic's own I did a lot of research into the different brands on the market. Voxengo's was a name consistently associated with high praise. Having bought numerous plug-ins from you I attest to the robustness, usability, elegance and effectiveness of the Voxengo tools and the audible improvements they made to my music. The price, when looking at that of the competition, seems pretty cheap.
I use Crunchessor (powerful all-purpose compressor), Drumformer (great results) and Voxformer, Varisaturator, GlissEQ and HarmoniEQ and the smaller ones, like StereoTouch (so good), Warmifier (very subtle when used correctly) and LF Max Punch (instantly rewarding). When I master I always use CurveEQ (brilliant design), Soniformer and Elephant.
As an amateur, it's hard for me to appreciate just how good these plug-ins are, because I've not tried a lot of the comparable tools from other companies, but as Voxengo always does the job in the way I want, I've no desire to look for any replacements. When I used Elephant, I knew I wouldn't need another limiter; it doesn't add any colour to the mix and it's incredibly powerful. The entire mix is simply elevated, louder, with no apparent negatives. The only one I have no idea how to use is Soniformer, but the presets are really solid, so I don't feel the need to investigate further.
The saturation, EQ and compressors in Voxformer helped me fully realise what my voice could be. I had no idea my vocals could sound so full and warm until I used it, and now my singing has matured to match that sound so well that I don't even need to dump loads of effects anymore, just any quick preset on the Voxformer and there you go: thicker, sunnier, glowing.
I'm so stoked I came across this site, and I will definitely get the Polysquasher in the sale this summer.
After demoing everything out there Elephant stomped on everything! It's versatility and transparency is truly fantastic and it's just got better with each update.
Pretty much nothing leaves the mastering studio without Elephant on it so in that sense it's one of my most used and relied upon processor.
I've also used MSED and SPAN for years and aim to pick up VariSaturator soon.
Top class tools for a very reasonable outlay 10/10
Keep it up and many thanks for your dedication and hard work!
Dear Mr. Vaneev,
I am using Your tools for professional CD productions, broadcast an TV, too.
And it is about time to say thank You!
I am enjoying to work with all Your plugins every day.
Nowadays we have many plugins being programmed to be used by non professionals, as long as they look good and have all kind of bullshit-addons to disturb studio computers from working smooth and efficiently.
I appreciate Your way of seeing the things from the point of music professionals and sound engineers in terms of quality, pricing, and handling parameters as it should be technical wise. The optical appearance of the tools are made for an everyday use in industrial production. Thanx a lot.
All the Best
We recommend this free plugin to all user, we highly recommend it.
In the last article from best mixing techniques and Dynamic range
we posted Voxengo Spam like a useful plugin for work in your master channel.
For mastering very useful!
On every session I work on, Voxengo Span is at the end of my chain. I've created my own template which makes the curve flat for a pink noise. Since most of today's music approximate a pink noise, that's makes it very relevant. I also made the sampling time longer, which makes the curve less dynamic. It seems to be more truthful to how we experience loudness.
I think Voxengo Span is a very simple, yet effective metering plugin. Since it's free, it's an unbeatable value for the money.
