    Phil's Cascade is a special plugin that adds some magic to your tracks.
    Just insert it into a track or into any buss channel and start tweaking some of its controls, et voila!
    It does its magic.

    I love what real tubes do that plugins only approximate, and here I’m referring to the elusive liquidity that tubes seem to add to audio. But I’m “in the box” these days, so that’s not happening. Given that this is a plugin, it’s a really good one, with some nice flexibility, and it sounds different from my VSM3 and Black Box plugins. I especially liked the filter and some of the more esoteric options on the front panel when trying the demo, so I bought it. The interface is easy to work with. Overall, I think it’s pretty cool, and worth the price of admission!

    I tried to balance the male voiceover for an multimedia guide and was not quite satisfied with the results i got with my other plugins. The visitors in the exhibition will hear the sound on a little nifty one ear headphone which starts at 300 Hz. So i Cut the bass frequencies below 300 Hz, but then the sound was as nifty as the headphone. So i tried phils cascade and suddenly it worked verry well, because although i Cut the low frequencies as well, i was able to maintain a rich, warm and natural sound by playing with the other parameters...it is fun and verry responsive

  • Crazy Interesting Saturation

    The sound mangling is crazy with this plug-in.. I own many saturation plugins but this one has a mind of its own! Elysia has done it again!

    I've only had a chance to use Phil's Cascade for one assignment...to get an acoustic bass to poke out from a fairly dense mix...it was a quick dialup and it did the job perfectly. Looking forward to more interactions with it!

  • Phil's Cascade...

    ★★★★★
    by Krešimir Bikić
    Phil's Cascade is sooooo versatile plugin. Yes, I have a few others but "all-in-one box of tricks" for smooth and nice harmonic saturation, and distortion as well, is really nice to have in one place. And, beside the fact that this is proved and reliable elysia and PA, I feel confident that this one will make a huge difference in small dosages.
    These plugins afre like women and poison. Deadly in small quantities. Or large! It all depends...

    OK, I was sceptical. For like 5 minutes. But although I own Black Box HG-2 (and love it to death!) and Vertigo VSM-3 and several other distortion / saturation tools from PA, I have to admit: Phil's Cascade is a completely different beast.
    Not better than all of the others, but really REALLY different. The way you crank up the distortion on the left side of the plugin and then "tame" things a bit if needed on the other side is so much fun, and within a minute or two I can pretty much place any signal into my mix. Phil's Cascade tightens up the low end nicely and glues things together, but without cutting too much low end. It sounds JUST RIGHT!
    I have tested this for a few hours now, but it's Mix Magic!
    Highly recommended.
