Product Reviews

  • Black Box Analog Design HG-2

    I’ve only spent a short time with the Black Box HG-2 and I’m already in love! What a fantastic sound it has. It really does glue your mix together in a special way, adding character and density that is second to none. The additional air control is truly the icing on the cake. I’m hooked!

  • Brainworx bx_rooMS

    bx_rooMS is a very special product. Sure there are many great reverbs out there but it stands out from the crowd with it’s rich sound and flexible intuitive interface. It’s really a sound designer's dream, but it never feels confusing. bx_rooMS can create everything from beautiful true-to-life spaces to the strange and impossible. The added Quick Controls allow me to easily get in the zone and then tweak from there. The Source Distance, Directivity, M/S and EQ just take it to another level. Easily the only reverb I may ever need.

  • Vertigo VSM-3

    The Vertigo VSM-3 is without a doubt my favorite saturation / distortion! It can go from hi-fi subtle to glorious extremes and back again. The dual circuits, frequency selectivity, M/S and blend controls make it so versatile and fun to use. Suitable for all instruments, busses and mastering chains.

  • Lindell Audio 354E

    I’ve really enjoyed using the Lindell 354E on a new batch of mixes. It has a detailed yet powerful sound that is perfect for the mix buss or for mastering. The three bands, sidechain filter, Mix knob, and M/S functionality really give you a lot of control. The large GUI is gorgeous to look at and a joy to use.

  • Unfiltered Audio Instant Delay

    I love the new Instant Delay from Unfiltered Audio. It has a lot of my favorite aspects of Sandman Pro but in a smaller, easier to use package. It’s a fantastic sounding delay with many tonal possibilities.
