The UJAM Finisher plugins are full of creativity and inspiration. I just love using them on any type of track and creating something new.
This plugin is no exception, the categories of the modes are based on decades (60,70,80,90) and include instant vibe.
For each of the 50 modes you get 4 variation controls which let you design the sound even further.

It's really hard to explain how this plugin sounds as it depends on the source and the modes are combination of effects (flanging, chorusing, reverb, compression, distortion and more). You just have to try it for yourself.

You can watch my quick review and demo here.

Looking for professional sounding voiceover or dialog? This plugins combines several processes in one simple user interface.

Voxessor is a sophisticated tool that will help you to create a perfect voice-over within a few seconds. This easy manual explains its features and controls' functions.

The plugin includes auto leveling of signal to have less dynamics. Turning this feature on will result in constant volume of your material.

Dynamics and De-Esser.

Compressor – Determines the level of compression applied to your signal.

Gate - Level of gate applied to your signal.

De-esser on/off – This button determines whether de-esser is applied to your signal.

Depth - Level of intensity of De-esser.

Deeser tuning – This knob is used to sweep-search for frequency of the speaker's sybilants. That will be used for de-esing.

Intelligent Matching.

On/Off – Turns on the matching process.

Analyze your voice – Turn this feature on for 5 seconds (button glows) when your recorded signal is playing, then switch off! Your signal is analyzed then and ready to be matched to ideal. Correctness also depends on "Mode" (character) voice you have chosen.

Match – This knob is a dry/wet knob for matching feature.

I just love UJAM way of thinking, making complex things easy and accessible. The Virtual Drummer is no exception.
While you can use the individual instruments (kick, snare, tom, hats) you also have style patterns you can use and create complete drum performance.

The patterns can be drag & dropped as MIDI parts into your DAW and further edit later.
In addition you can route the different instruments to channels in your DAW for more control and mixing.
Virtual Drummer Deep includes 5 kits with different sound, micing and mixing settings for you to choose from.

UVI Program 24 Review.

This is a really fun library with synthwave, disco and actually pretty much anything.
You can use it with the UVI Workstation (free) or Flacon and the possibilities are endless.

Inspired two rare synths Solton Programmer 24 and SM100, this product is designed for quick backing track inspiration but you can use the individual instruments, change presets and do a lot of sound design.

For each of the instruments you can adjust the sounds, presets, effects and even send to two reverb and two delay buses.

The Finisher NEO is both creative and practical multi-effect plugin.
With just few controls you can get so much.

The Finisher NEO is based on 27 effects algorithms which are combined to create 50 modes. For each mode you have two controls for variations and one main effect control. Automating the controls is part of the magic for creating evolving sounds and effects.

SPREAD Expand and widen your signal adding ambiences, echoes and granular harmonics. Reverb, Delay, Grain Pitch.

STIR Modulation Effects that modulate and stir up some frequency, phase or other aspect of the signal Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Rotary.

CRUSH Destroys, degrades and distorts the signal in multiple creative ways from distortion to frequency range reduction to adding noise. Distortion, LoFi.

SHAPE Shape the spectral character of the signal using filtering or other strong effects changing the spectrum of the signal. EQ, Filter, Convolution.

BOOST These Modes help boosting the signal in the mix by dynamic or frequency changes EQ, Dynamics, Multiband.

This is really good virtual guitar and especially if you are looking for strat/Tele/Jag sound. The user interface is simple and effective and includes some effects, doubling, drop-d and tone shaping controls. The playability is pretty good and you can realistic guitar phrases and lics with ease.

Modular Icons which is part of the Native Instruments Play Series does sound modular. I Love the sounds and feel of this library. Built-in sequencer is really easy to use and you can apply it to pitch, velocity and the macros.

The play series is mostly about blending two layers and create some very useful sounds with minimalistic user interface. The sound browser is easy to use and the extra options are very useful. For example you can map the layers to different ranges on the key board and so layer A can be triggered by the lower part of the key board while layer B is triggered by the upper part of the keyboard and they can overlap as well.

Here is a video review I made to cover this library.

Falcon is a sound design dream come true.
First, this is a combination of the best of both worlds, a sampler and synthesizer.
You have a choice of 16 different oscillators including different samplers, analog, FM, Wavetable and more. Falcon also includes 90+ effects, modulation sources, MIDI processors with scripting in an expansive semi-modular sound design environment.

What you need to know about Falcon is that you can build complex soundscapes, layers, sequences and more using different keygroups, layers and parts. This might be intimidating at first but when you get the idea a new world of sound will open up for you.

You can also combine different oscillators at the same level or in different levels which is totally flexible and creative. You can map different oscillators to different parts of your MIDI keyboard or other MIDI devices which is cool for live performance or other sound design ideas.

Here is a quick overview of Falcon structure: https://youtu.be/oTsotLgKFwo

This is one of my favorite Piano VST sampling the Steinway Concert Grand Model D. UVI did a great job with the articulations, sounds and overall feel of the Piano.
The tone shaping options are very useful with envelopes, filter, pitch and mod wheel. In addition the effect rack includes, IR(Convolver), Drive & Equalizer, Stereo Modulator, Delay and the amazing SparkVerb.

The Model D can also be used with Falcon as well as the Workstation.

Here is a review I made: https://youtu.be/A4wIohbCG4A
