Quotes


FireCobra

Crunchy tube-style distortion with a smooth grit. Perfect for subtle harmonic compliments, to extreme coloured effects. I use it on any track that needs that unique tube character.

Royal Compressor

Smash it! Not for the easily offended! A vintage style compressor with extreme qualities, great for anything that you want to feature forward in your mix. I use the most extreme settings on your parallel drum buss!

Autoformer

"Autoformer is that plugin you didn't know you needed, but then you discover that you can't do without it! I use Autoformer to smooth out guitar, bass, and vocal performances, putting them forward in the mix without having to eq or over-compress. It works especially well on stand-up bass, balancing out this notoriously dynamic and unpredictable instrument, while allowing it to maintain it's natural feeling."

Hyperspace

An all-purpose reverb and reflection engine with an easy-to-understand user interface. I like that I can control every detail of my ambient sound, including creating spaces that do not exist in the physical world!
