Okay, getting beyond the huge price of admission for these plugs, I can only simply state that these plugs are without a doubt - the real deal. Rich, I can see why you've praised them in the past. Here's the ones I've messed around with and my thoughts: LP EQ Orange - This is a serious mastering EQ. In my mind, there is no finer EQ available. I had settled quite frustratingly on the Weiss simply because all other models left me desiring something else. The Weiss was the only EQ I've ever heard to date that didn't destroy the sound to me. (The Z-Systems was a close second.) This "Orange" EQ is simply awe inspiring. First, any changes made using the eq are apparent immediately - in a good way. If I make a bump of say .2 dB with a tight q centered around 500 Hz, I expect to hear it. So many other eq's simply don't give you any real feedback until you get into agressive edits. The other thing I look for in an EQ is purity of sound. If I shift a frequency's amplitude, I don't expect another frequency to be thrown out of whack. That's what happens though, all the time! Not with Algo's stuff. It's truly almost eerie hearing only THAT frequency adjusted. It really takes a little bit to get used to. I am so accustomed to making changes based on the compromise that I'm expecting, not reality! Here's the really wierd part. I can't explain this scientifically (Sorry Dave), but somehow, with minor tweaks made I actually hear an improvement in the soundstage. Perhaps it's my expectation of degradation kicking in, but I really hear it. Can someone explain this?? DeNoiser- I have come out in many cases on this forum against denoising or noise reduction tools. The reasoning is quite simple. Frankly, I think they suck - all of them - yes, even the expensive ones named after fragerent pieces of wood. So, following Rich's advice, I begrudgingly tried Algo's attempt at noise reduction. I specifically tried it on a recording that I felt was beyond hope and is so covered in uncorrelated noise that I actually put a disclaimer on the package for all those who purchased it. (It's a live recording of a High School Chorus in a wonderful auditorium with hideous sounding AC blowers and light cooling systems - 4 different noises altogether!) So, here's the chain that I used - Algo DeNoiser Algo LP EQ Orange (to take care of anything the DeNoiser removed or affected) Sequoia Room Sim (to replace affected ambience) To my surprise - this recording not only sounds quite a bit better, it actually sounds fantastic (considering the performance...). There are no traces of artifact WHATSOEVER!!!!! I have NEVER experienced this - EVER!!!! (Can I emphasize this enough?) Simply put, if I had used these products on this disc, not only could I lose the disclaimer entirely, I could have breathed SO much easier while producing, engineering and mastering this disc! So, now I have to sell a lot of blood to be able to afford this (but hey, I'll get some good cookies too...), but it will be totally worth it. I have yet to really try the ReNOVAtor, but it's next up. I have a pretty good idea what to expect with this, so it's unlikely I'll be blown away, but I'm sure I'll still dig it a bunch! So, in short - run, don't walk to your nearest Algorithmix distributor and drop your hard-earned allowance on this stuff. You won't be disappointed. If in doubt, send away for the free demos. J.
