Voxengo HarmoniEQ - User Reviews
During the last few years I replaced a lot of mixing outboard with Voxengo Plugins, simply because they sound better.
Voxengo Curve EQ has replaced nearly every digital or analog EQ I own (except the Focusrite stuff) and the various tubesim and saturation plugins have made my Telefunken tape machine obsolete.
Since I use Voxengo Pristine Space / Boogex all my guitar and bass amplifiers start to rot slowly in their corner, only being used for capturing impluses sometimes.
There certainly is still some use for my old stuff, but not too much since I have my Voxengo Plugins.
Voxengo Marquis Compressor,
Voxengo Analogflux Suite,
I cannot believe that Warmifier gives BBE Sonic Maximizer a run for the money. I was fixated on BBE, but after using Warmifier, there is so much more control that the BBE SM doesn't have: current, voltage tube emulation as well as tube makes/types, LE and HE filter adjustments as well as LE And HE EQ'ing. Just disgusting! (Don't fret: that's a good disgusting LOL)
Sometimes I have to admit it: I get confused to using Lampthruster and Warmifer, but Warmifer is the unexpected lovechild of Voxengo TubeAmp & Voxengo Sonic Finalizer in my eyes! I assume that Warmifer is better for the mastering phase when used with Marq. Compressor, Soniformer and Elephant.....as Lampthruster is good for colorizing tracks in congregation with Voxengo Crunchessor, Voxengo GlissEQ, and Elephant, correct?
Well, enough of my raving. I'm going back to using this bad boy. Using Warmifier with AFChorus and Crysonic's Spectra'PE 32-bit limiter is a deadly combo, yo.

Well this is a very strange point of view I have achivied after trying out
the Voxengo mastering tools.They sound superb in confront to others.I don't want to repeat myself but Soniformer and Elephant have given the results of a TC Electronic master (or even better).So I now look at the audio world in another way -There are some things in life that money can't buy,even your talent and devotion to the audio world- Your intelectual property should cost more and more but you kept this simple.Well I am astonished with Curve EQ and Lampthruster which gave us the ability to throw some tube racks out the window.And finaly r8brain Pro and Free that helped to over come the need to by those expensive and bother some converters that seems to me just take up space and confort.A big thank you from a young composer but very careful to sound quality and final products.You made it people transparency,clarity,punch,artistic design,warmth and consistency will have the VOXENGO stamp over them for a long time
I record and master a lot of different types of projects. I have the algorithmix plug-ins, two UAD 1 cards, just about every plugin you can think of. I just started using the voxengo plugs and "wow", I can't believe how great they sound!!! They do things to your signal that you strive for with expensive high end gear.
Keep on creating.
A word on Elephant. I use quite an array of plug-in processors and effects(within my DAW) in my work. Some are very expensive and do an incredibly professional job (provided you take the time to learn how to use them). Heres one of them with a slight exception.
Elephant is an excellent track limiter. Especially for rhythm and drum tracks. Acceptional control with a silky, yet somewhat nuetral sound. Its user friendly with a simple, but effective interface.
The exception.........its not one of the more expensive products. The results just sound like it.
I have been very pleased in using several of the Voxengo processors in different professional projects. After learning what they do well ( and they do alot ), sound sculpting becomes that much easier.
Also...my feelings tell me that this company isn't going to rest on its laurels and there are further treats to come.
