    "This audio plugin had what I wanted. It makes my digital audio coming out of my computer sound like it has reverb like my old turntable and speakers combo used to rock back when I was still spinning records. The algorithm that the plugin uses does a really good job of converting the sound output to a rich reverberating sound. Very lightweight unobtrusive software that I was able to use to get the effect I was looking for."

    "This is some super powerful audio software. It really helps with my editing in the studio, I can do everything I need to without worrying about needing more programs. The range of sound and options is endless, I still haven't done everything I can with it. It's been a learning curve to use, but I think I've gotten the hang of it by now."

    "Now we are talking! As you all know, working with the severely untalented musicians daily here at Nice Typewriter Records can be a chore, to put it lightly, so when I saw that somebody had illegally downloaded this an put it on the studio's 1993 Compaq Presario, I jumped for joy! This thing has everything for the mediocre musician. You want that crappy singer to sound like a squirrel? You got it! A pampered musician wants a section where his voice sounds like Popeye huffed some helium? It's got that too! The point is that the producer is much more talented than the dim-witted musicians that actually write the material, and the VocalSynth 2 makes sure everybody knows it. I give it seven out of five stars!"

    "The RX 6 plugin is the industry standard plugin for noise reduction in audio. It has a lot of settings to fine tune but usually it works right out of the box."

    "A pretty solid audio plugin for any music content creator. Of course the software is on the expensive side, but if you are marketing you music and selling it then I don't think you will regret the purchase. I will say that this really isn't for those that only dabble because the software isn't the most intuitive."
