  • Hi-fi your mix, indeed...

    by mholloway
    There are many plugins on this site that claim to add that special 'magic' or 'mojo' to your mix....this is the one that actually does it. It takes some tweaking, so be ready to spend some time...but the results are simply unreal.
  • Excellent

    A secret weapon and one of the best plugins I have in my collection. It can improve sound drastically if used correctly. Personally, I prefer this one over a Black Box HG-2 which is good, but rather for the electronic type of music. For anything else - use VSM-3 on your masters!
  • VSM-3

    by BluelagoonStudios
    We have an arsenal of distortion plugins, but the most used are the decapitator and this one. This one because you can really fine tune the settings. And it's true, very versatile, for different program material. If you want to smash a parallel bus with drums, it makes it really full and rich sounding.
  • Vertigo VSM-3 Saturator

    Very tweakable. Perfect if you want to sat the mid channel different from the side channels. Cool-looking rack-mount-style UI. Excellent / musical sound quality. It adds warmth and guts while retaining clarity. I have many different saturators and this one is my favorite for mastering. It gives my mixes delicious analog character without ever being "too much". Highly recommended.
  • Complex to use, but great sound is achievable.

    I've seen 2ProBeats use the hardware of this. He can make it sound great. There is also one other guy on YouTube who made it sound incredible in the low end.
  • The reviews are true

    Echoing everyone else before me, this is a must-have plugin.
    I demoed it after seeing so many recommending it, being unsure if it was something that would fit into my workflow - and bought it right away.
    To start with, it is hands down the best-sounding digital distortion I've heard, ever.
    The monitoring section where you can listen to just the harmonic generators and the mid-side and routing options are incredible.
    The presets are also very good. This thing just sounds unbelievable on the master bus.
    Well worth it.
  • Worth Learning

    This is the best digital saturator/overdrive unit I've ever heard. It takes some getting used to, but you won't find a beefier addition to your sound than this thing. I don't use it much for mastering, but as far as a channel overdrive, there's nothing better.

  • Helpful mixing tool

    by 6lord6apophis6
    I got this on the Halloween sale for $30 so you really can't beat that. But I find this plugin to be helpful to bring out flavor and character from different timbres you have. As well as breaking up and getting crispy is you push it really hard. Not that I would use this as my only distortion. But for fuzz or overdrive, hell yes.
