In a market bloated with 'emulations' of classic gear, it's rare to find juicy sounding plugins that capture the best qualities of 'classic', offer some flexibility and don't break the bank.  In the universe of more tweakable plugins, here too only a few offerings stand out.

After years of working with hundreds of plugins from numerous companies, I've found only a handful of offerings that keep me coming back.  One of those companies that still hold a top spot is Voxengo.  Their plugins are 'analog' without being slavishly limited to a given hardware model; flexible but not overloaded with 'feature bloat'; affordable without sacrificing sound quality; and have excellent & consistent GUIs to work with.  A winning combination.

There is definitely a place for well designed emulations of classic gear, but when you require some flexibility and/or modernity, Voxengo is great choice.  Their uniform GUIs also promote actually listening to the music!

Voxengo also has an easy robust activation system (no dongles), exceptional reliability (I've never had a Voxengo plugin crash my DAW in 14 years) and full 64 bit floating point processing*.

I am using quite a few of your plugins as bus masters for film & TV sound post.  Elephant after Polysquasher is fantastic to envelope the final mix and peak limiter for broadcast specs.  Voxformer is an excellent way to control and punch vocals without sounding over processed.  Soniformer is my preferred plugin for music pre mix stems but until recently, I wasn't quite happy with a compressor for FX stem control, but the new Drumformer is perfect for this.

HarmoniEQ and GlissEQ are both really useful to enhance without fatigue and also interesting EQs to use on denoised material.  Great plugins and so reasonable priced.  They work perfectly in my Fairlight host.

Thanks so much for the HarmoniEQ update.  It sounds amazing.  I'm finally getting the sounds on my songs that I've been trying to get for years.  I use it in my mastering chain.  It gives me a airy presence that's not harsh.  The compressed settings are just great.  They give me a smoothness that I've been looking for for my solo classical guitar pieces that have been difficult in the past.

The mastering chain I've been using recently, all Voxengo, is Tapebus, CurveEQ, Polysquasher (also a great update-wow!), HarmoniEQ, Elephant.  I've been having a lot of success with that combo but I'm wondering if you have any suggestions or feedback about it.  Thanks for your great work.

Initially bought the Warmifier to heat up a very solidstate guitar tone and have subsequently used it on my masters as well, brilliant bit of software, sounds so ...warm!  Definitely leading to the 12AT7 for the smoothness.  As a result of being so impressed I also bought HarmoniEQ and Marquis Comp which also sound lovely, very smooth and clean!

Oh my gosh!  This is amazing.  I have been recording in my home studio for over 8 years and I have always gotten a hollow, narrow, non-professional sound, no matter how hard I tried.  I use good (mid-grade) pro-audio equipment, a quality mic, and decent sounding instruments, however I could never get that professional glaze.  I am a female vocalist, and due to the natural timbre of my voice, combined with my soprano range, my vocals always seemed to sound hoow, with too much reverb and echo (and nor because I added that either).  I bought the voxformer, harmoniEQ, varisaturator, and polysquasher, and downloaded some of the free applications as well.  The difference is remarkable.  I just bought these yesterday- I installed them and worked with them til about midnight last night, then set the CD to burn while I slept.  This morning, I took a listen and WOW.  It sounds like it was done in a professional studio.  Most of that came from the voxformer and harmoniEQ.  Now, I will clean up the little things and add the final gloss with the varisaturator and the polysquasher.  All I can say is "thank you".  After many dead end searches, I finally found the products that work.

I'm been pursuit for the harmonic sound for my music in PC, then I encountered Foobar2000, a music player program, then I introduced the Voxengo tube amp, warmifier and finally warmifier's VST plugins into the given player.  After optimized the setting among VST and player, it produced the sound that pure, clear, clean, crispy, and warm.  The journey for harmonic sound was end by mean of Voxengo's VST plugins.

hallo,

just wanted to tell you, that i am absolutely happy with harmoniEQ 2.0!

i used version 1.0 quite a lot in the past, but it went in the background a little over time.

now with version 2.0 it is back again :-). what a great tool, i used it in a lot of occasions, from whole mixes to single tracks. i got perfect results for my needs, in very short time, from adding presence and grip/transient-emphasizing (i used it for this a lot) to making sounds mellow and smooth.

in a recent project, i had to bring a lot of very different acoustic-recordings in balance with each other. it ranged from heavy percussion to choir-singing/flute/cello. i got it done with heavy use of harmoniEQ in very short time. no fiddling with eqs and compressors/expanders, just tuning in the right frequencies, a little finetuning with the settings and done.

this a great addition to my toolset. i am amazed that there is not much more rumor about it :-).

best greetings,

Woaaa - I just updated Elephant to the latest version as well as I purchased the new Harmony EQ...  I am completely blown away by the Harmony EQ - there was always that cryptic "boost" knob in the old version - which usually sounded great, but was not really controllable - so I usually ended up not using it.  Now with the new Dynamic Section as well as the realtime analyzer..  Wow!

In addition I just stepped over the graph feature in Elephant.  Great great great!!  Ok - watching a waveform has nothing to do with mastering..  But I do love to watch that.  I am most sure we all do that..  Before I had to open an exported masterfile in Wavelab, haha - now I can see what is going on :)) Now that is really a cool feature!!

Really great tools.  I usually use them to make sample sounds more natural.  Easy to handle.
