Tested this plugin on CLA mix from CLA mix course. I put this on the master bus and started turning up and down the levels on "Shine" and "Thick" and I was pleasantly surprised by it. Very fine nuances glue things together nicely. "Shine" brought out the snare and cymbals and added shine to the mix - and it did so in a very musical agreeable way. Nothing harsh. The "Thick" added a nice bass bump, round and rich and again very musical. I am very pleasantly surprised by the results. In Studio 1 Pro this plugin uses 0% resources with 0 ms latency. This is important because this means you can put this plugin on multiple tracks and buses to add some honey where needed. So I give this free plugin 5 stars because it does exactly what it claims and it does it very smoothly, musically with 0 impact on resources.
If I could wish for additional features, then it would be maybe to add a stereo width knob or some kind of depth knob or mid/side knob. Maybe 1208 Reviber will add this in a later edition.
Overall I can recommend to add this sweet little tool to your arsenal because it will inevitably come in very handy during your mixing and mastering.
So much clarity & fatnnes bring the mix up to life. I love this plugin, I'm much more than happy because it's the best for mix & mastering, it's glue things together and make it louder on the master buss. the most Exciter Enhancer ever.
It would be nice if the Dev explained a bit about what is going on when the knobs are twizzled (in that annoyingly rotary way) for people who like to understand what processes they are applying. However, as others have said, it does do what it indicates it will on the tin so for most people that is plenty enough.
I also am finding resource usage in Reason 10.x very low. Even tho it may have caused a hang or two when opening the first time per session.
Well worth a try and speaks well for what their other devices might be like.
The most of the best update ever, very very great good professional for master glue mix buss exciter enhancement for mixing and mastering, including on multitracks, with mix knob effect for parallel clarity to make a bigger sound, 1208 audio plugins, I love you guys and your free plugins including this one.
