I was immediately overwhelmed by the stunning overall sound quality and the very well-chosen parameters.
It’s super easy to use and the exorbitant FireCobra will even shapeshift a boring DAW click track into a world-class performance.
No matter what kind of specific sonic character you’re hunting for: whether it’s the N - - -, the A - - or the ultra sweet German valve flavor: only adjust the highpass (thanks for that knob. you know what it takes!), dial in the MOJO and you will start smiling while entering sheer analogue heaven.
Awesome! What a brilliant idea to put some sought-after compressors in a row and let them be merged as we want to. With this tool, UP increased the speed of our workflow and also decreased the CPU load! Thumbs up!
The awesome Orbitron is definitely my new "roller coaster" if I want to dial in a superb and also funny modulator. from subtle movements packed with emotion up to the weirdest and hyphy stuff spinning around my head. conclusion: immersion audio with just two speakers. and thanks to the clever GUI layout tweaking is a breeze. I'm totally convinced!
In swiss german the word "Uni" (ohne) means "without". Bottom line: it would be hard for me to live without your ace sounding, ultra flexible and close-to-zero-load-on-cpu UniChannel!
MIRROR-ing is a spectacular way if I have to cope with too much of void in a fragmented arrangement delivered by customers! Say "Hasta luego" to lame and annoying rhythm and sequencer tracks with this little help of my new friend.
Nanopuls does an incredible job on all this sort of aggro and peaky sounds like rimshots, triangles and superdry shakers etc. smoothing out the sharpness and the ability shaping them into the desired envelope heading for a creamy and thick and very pleasing piece of sound. and of course the opposite if needed! ;)
