Voxengo r8brain - User Reviews
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*.
The resampling sounds absolutely great !
Even with drastic downsampling, it is still punchy and bright !
Your product is near to be perfect....the only missing thing is the pipe option (stdin/out -)
Thank you very much !
It works perfect; Solved my problem; is FREE; outstanding performance :)
I decided you deserved my testimonial. Thank you for the excellent services :)
I once had r8brain but lost it after computer upgrades etc ,its a very handy little plugin to have. Its nice to record at 96khz bandwidth for the benefits it gives,but I find doing mixing at this samplerate taxes the system and every plugin turns into a potential cpu hog. So I'm glad I remembered about r8brain to help me out in the file sample rate conversion dpt'.
r8brain saved my day (after finding out, that the batch-converter in adobe's audition couldn't automatically save the destination-files in the same channel-format (mono/stereo) like the source-files. you have to choose to save them all mono or all stereo ...)
thanks for this converter and for fixing the little bugs within one day!!!
