Product Reviews

  • elysia mpressor

    It's very important to me when working on vocals to have several different options, styles and flavors of compression to achieve various techniques, and the mpressor is truly a special tool that I can use to get compression results distinct from any other.

  • Brainworx bx_control V2

    I love the bx_control, not only because it is such a quick and handy tool for monitoring M/S when I'm mixing ITB, but also because it's an immediately effective way to both tighten and widen something in the mix.

  • Brainworx bx_dynEQ V2

    This is one of my new favorite plugins from Brainworx. It is by far one of the most flexible and precise tools I use on a consistent basis to manage harsh frequencies across a vocal buss. I'm blown away with how transparent it is, even beyond moderate settings.

  • Millennia TCL-2

    The TCL-2 is one of my favorite emulations from PA and one of my go-to M/S compressors. I use it for subtle things like reverb compression as well as an aggressive buss compressor on large groups of vocals and instruments. In all instances, it is an extremely useful solution.

  • Brainworx bx_limiter

    I love this limiter because it does so much more than just standard peak limiting. The channel link, parallel and saturation features make this one of my most effective and favorable tools for handling dynamic control across multiple busses.
