Hyperspace is many reverb units in one. It can give you either vintage, classic, retro, modern, sci-fi or cosmic textures at the click of a button. I’ll be using this reverb a lot.


FireCobra is exactly what it’s name suggests. It adds fire and bite to your audio whilst still maintaining warmth. This plugin is fantastic. I particularly like it on my drums bus to add clarity and a touch of grit.

Royal Compressor

A great emulation of a hardware classic. You’ll find yourself using many instances of Royal Compressor across your mix.

Front DAW

FrontDAW is the real deal. It’s low on CPU and high on flavour. Front Daw is getting used a lot in my sessions.


I tried a number of tools to try and deal with a problematic vocal which sounded dull and lacklustre. Firecharger gave the vocal a new life by adding a smooth saturation that bought the vocal to the forefront of the mix without any harsh artefacts. This is a great all-rounder that has been added to my selection of go to plugins!


Make your mixes bigger, wider, deeper and shinier with FireMaster. This plugin adds all of these touches giving your mix a final polish easily and effortlessly. FireMaster will be used on all of my mixes from now on!


I like plugins that do things out of the ordinary. With Pluralis, I can easily create unique, crazy otherworldly effects! Loads of fun!
