Smooth gate, excellent interaction with compressors, smooth saturation algorithms and very snappy multiband dynamics with upward and downward compression modes available. EQ is both musical and clinical and sounds crystal clear even in the high frequencies. Can handle about any audio problem thrown at it and works extremely well as a certain "well" known channel strip that comes to mind. Only gripes are processor hit and comb filtering can occur in hosts with no latency compensation due to the parallel mix dial, but considering the cost and the multi functional options available as standard within all of voxengo products I think its my now go to channel strip. Let downs are minimal such as implementation of side chain filtering could work better but with the additional clipping you can get some extreme coloration and harmonics throughout the audio chain. The best thing about voxengo FX is that they never seem to crash at all, so another one for the collection. It took a while to really appreciate it as I first thought just another multiband channel strip, but it offers so much more when you really delve into it so there goes Voxformer for sale. Another place for improvement could be a more characterful EQ that offers modes reminiscent of EQ's from various "Classic hardware", but then again Mr Vaneev is well known for making his own variations that can only be described as Unique, always look forward to his new releases and cant wait for his analog flux suite to be upgraded.
