    This is the future of plug-ins. Creating prototypical tube gear, imaginary combinations, outlandish concoctions and then emulating the actual gear and offering it to engineers and musicians. This plug-in is so good and is such a game changer, I dare say that anyone mixing ITB exclusively MUST have this gem, along with BX_Masterdesk.
    I own tube gear. I love tube gear. Used in combination with the amazing BX_Masterdesk, the combo of Phil's Cascade and Masterdesk will damn near provide everything you need to get that fat, crunchy warmth and punch that only real world analog can provide.
    Once again, Plugin Alliance and Elysia have created something very special to us engineers and musicians. Place this in the category of Must Have Secret Sauce recipes.

  • Will replace a lot of hardware

    I've owned or used some similarly built hardware including the Mammoth Cave Woolly Mammoth and the Kerwax Replica. In practice, these machines can be very useful boxes for color or processing sounds. The idea behind this plugin and the execution is almost flawless. It can go from light to extreme settings and everywhere in between, just don't use too much spice ;) I could not pass this up as a fan of al color plugins, this is one of the best. I would definitely say that it will replace a lot of hardware for certain users. Try a tape or color EQ after the box to make it sound more "vintage". Its great on its own or with other plugins to make great sound!
  • Excellent set of colours and saturation

    ★★★★★
    by Mark 'Ruff' Ryder
    Rather than just copy the same old gear as a one trick pony; This plugin brings some of those colours into one place with many more options to tweak and enhance. This is like a Swiss army knife of colours convert your digital sound into a great analogue sound. The options and variants in colour in one place makes this my go to option rather than just pulling up a one trick pony saturator. Its a whole new way to get fast results with varying quality models for sound sculpting and plumping.

    I specialize in composing and producing original boom bap music using hyper-sampled virtual instruments, and the key to this particular art form is to get your tones to sound like the records you would sample from your vinyl collection.
    Phil's Cascade is a perfect coloration tool in reaching such sonic goals. My sound design and mixing workflow has changed for the better thanks to this new plugin. I Love it! Thanks guys!

    elysia Phil's Cascade is based on a very esoteric hardware! It can be heared that the components come from the last century, it does spice up your DAW, from vintage distortion to subtle exciter.
    The tonal variation is limited, but to me it doesn't matter, because I use all PA distortion and exciter plugins, and while Phil's Cascade is less flexible, it has a 'quality' that is unique for plugins. I percieve that it has exactly the warmth and shine that so many ITB producers have been looking for, although leaning to a vintage tone.

  • From subtle to brutal

    ★★★★★
    by StevenK
    After I learned with the Vertigo VSM-3 that distortion on the master track can improve the mix - I now can give the needed "touch" on specific instruments. I can say that the Cascade is great on vocals and sampled instruments. (I am sure it will be great on synth sounds - but I don't use synths very often...) I have experienced that there is no need to start with the boost function - and it is very likely that the dampening option (e.g. on E-Piano) might do the job... Boosting is another option to make it sound harsh and brutal, if you want. To my experience it can do a lot in unexpected ways. It is a great option to sculpt sounds of an instrument - far more versatile than I expected.
