I hadn't heard of Goodhertz before the KVR news item about them releasing their Faraday Limiter. Any fans of their products here? Which would you recommend?

I have and love Lossy, but this is more of a special interest effect. It emulates the chirping side effects of mp3 encoding,
and while you can get a similar sound from spectral tools this is spot on.

I demoed the others, but already have that covered by other plugins. Maybe I'll get the vulf compressor in a sale, but then I think I'd have to beg for another demo period first.

Know this thread is a little old, but feel free to send us an email if you need another trial of Vulf Compressor. It's definitely worth a listen!

Glad you like Lossy. We're working on a "Inverse" mode at the moment that gives you only the stuff MP3 throws away.

I've only used Faraday limiter (drum bus) and it's good, thou HQ mode is a real cpu hog.

I'm a big fan of Goodhertz.
Discovered them via the Faraday Limiter which really impressed me.
Had it running on all sorts of things like drum bus, vocals, bass.

Then I demoed the rest of the range.
Now I've purchased the whole catalogue, apart from Can Opener Studio.

Vulf Compressor is special, does some things not many other comps do.
As for hilo and Lossy, while I probably can get the same results with other plugins I have, I ended up getting them as they are simple and fun to use.
Tone Control is very simple but can produce great results.
Sometimes I like have less options bands wise.

Plus, there is a special 15% deal on purchases of 3 or more plugins at once.
It isn't well advertised but when I contacted Goodhertz they told me what to do when checking out

I really like the GUI's, clever simple lay outs packed with nice features when you get to know them.
No I do not work for Goodhertz or have any relationship with them.

This mix has Goodhertz all over it, every plugin I've got is used, most multiple instances.
On the stereo bus, guitars, keys, drums and vocals. (There are other plugins used as well).

Yeah, HQ Mode can be a hog. We're working on some improvements that should at least double the HQ Mode efficiency, and FWIW, we're doing higher quality upsampling than most other plugin companies :)

Thanks for sharing your experience with them! They do seem to be very high quality. I've wondered why they aren't talked about more... Maybe because they're Mac-only?

ANYwho, I enjoyed the remix you linked. Sounds pretty good! Sometimes I felt like the vocals got lost in the mix, but otherwise it sounded good to me!

Thanks.
The level of the vocals reflects the vocalists view on where her vocals should sit as much as anything else. :wink:

went to the site and blown away by LoHi and Lossy...only ta find all the goodhertz goodies are for mac :(

I know there are probably plenty of filters out there that are comparable, but I don't think I've ever heard anything recently that does what Lossy does!
...any suggestions for windows cousins for either of these two (LoHi and Lossy)?

Sorry about that! Wish you could use them.

We haven't ruled out PC versions at some point, but unfortunately, it wouldn't happen in the near future.

@devkerr Is there a discount code somewhere? How about making a bundle available instead..?

We're working on bundles but aren't quite ready to launch them yet. If you contact us directly, though, we can generate a one-time coupon for you -> https://goodhertz.co/contact

Quick update here: I'm happy to report we've added bundle discounts to the Goodhertz store (which will replace the bundle coupon code): https://goodhertz.co/order
