About Vengeance Producer Suite Metrum

"After having worked with layered kicks, various sample libraries for years I stumbled across the Vengeance boys' latest creation Metrum and it felt like coming home after a long walk through the desert. Man, this thing is the end of dodgy kicks and you can control every aspect of the kick - and more. It's not only a kick plug in, but an amazing layering system, each with total control of everything. You can also add other samples and tweak presets to form the ultimate sound bank. That it looks great on the eye makes it even more appealing to insert and I usually end up with 5 or more for every mix. Thank you guys, you have made my year!
The Multiband Sidechain from Vengeance is another gift from these talented people. Sidechaining is a bit overused at the moment, but that's your regular ducking with a compressor. This is something else completely. First of all, it's visual and then it's got some mad presets that not only will get the job done, they will inspire you if you're running out of ideas. Essential any day of the week!"

About reFX Nexus²

"My experience with Nexus is working with other producers that seem to start every production with an instance of it. I was always wondering what that funky white and blue thing was that sounds like a record. The other week I had a chance to work with it in my own production as I had a friend over that had it in his computer. The first thing that hit me was how well the sound integrate in the mix; you pick a piano and it just sits on top of the beats flawlessly. I found myself picking a sound feeling no need to try just a few more patches like you do in all other synths in case you find something better. The control of every aspect is of course present here as well and I can see myself using this one for pretty much everything from stabs to brass to leads - simply stunning!"
