What do people think of Goodhertz?

Every now and then, customers write in to let us know what they think of our plugins. Here are some of our favorite blurbs.

The Vulf Compressor is on every drum bus, many guitars, too many places to mention. It’s a plugin that I use on literally every mix, I love it so so much. Faraday was definitely used on some bass to lock things in place. Trem Control is every panning effect on the album. I love your stuff so much, it’s really a huge part of my sound, and it was definitely a crucial part of this album [Snail Mail’s Lush]!

OK, this stuff is scary… like someone’s been inside my brain hearing my aural fantasies… and then made them real. I’ll be figuring out things to do with all these plugins for years.

On the outside it may look like a Volvo, but under the hood it’s a monster truck!!

Apart from how insanely good all of these plugins sound, the GUIs are also some of the most intuitive and logical out there right now. It’s the future.

The Vulf and Wow Control have been on every mix I’ve done lately in no small way. Really powerful yet incredibly fun and musical tools!

Chris Fogel Tenet, Black Panther, The Mandalorian, Creed II, Childish Gambino, St. Vincent

I ended up using several Goodhertz plugins all over the Tenet score and now I want more! Panpot alone was a lifesaver because we recorded the entire orchestra individually from each player’s home. The spectral panning was a major assist.

I use Goodhertz plugins on every mix that I do. Lohi is my go-to filter, Vulf Compressor lives on my drum buss in varying amounts of wet/dry, and Wow Control and Lossy are instant vibe enhancers on so many sounds. I’m constantly finding new ways to use this stuff- like recently I automated Trem Control on a lead vocal to give it some tempo synced bounce and it really brought it to life. The GUI’s are beautiful and intuitive, and the way every plugin is some hybrid of eq/dynamics/tone gives them all such great utility. Truly can’t say enough good things.

I am currently using both Vulf Compressor and Wow on a project to get lo-fi crunch on drums that I couldn’t get any other way. I have also used Wow instead of normal chorus plugins to widen and separate sounds. I like different and quirky things to stand out from the crowd.

Mick Gordon Composer & Sound Designer (Wolfenstein: The New Order, DOOM)

I absolutely adore your plugins. VulfCompressor is my favourite compressor by far and I used it extensively on my sounds to the recent Wolfenstein games. PanPot sits on almost every channel and is the best way I’ve found to quickly dial in a space for anything. Faraday is my new favourite goodie that sits on the mixbuss and it does all sorts of snappy things that really bring a groove to life. I love it all!!!

Goodhertz is giving engineers tools they need in the modern age. There’s so much character built into these plugins. Vulf Compressor is amazing at warming up really cold, digital feeling recordings. I can’t count how many times Goodhertz has saved me.

Scott Harper a.k.a KNOBS

Your plugins have been my rock. I don’t use anything else if I can get away with it. Megaverb and Lossy in particular go on most tunes.

Rafael Anton Irisarri Black Knoll Studio

Wow control sounds better than my ✲actual✲ tape machine (or the other 10 hardware pedals I have that emulate warble/tape effects for that matter).

Melvin “Chaos” Lewis Multi-Platinum Producer (Jaden Smith "Icon"/"Plastic," Black Eyed Peas, Logic, The Roots)

I absolutely love my options while using Goodhertz plugins. I love adding some grit to a sample using Lossy and Wow Control to give it some serious character. Goodhertz gives me every color in the coloring box.

Salami Rose Joe Louis

I use Vulf Compressor on pretty much every song I make. I love it for bass, drums, guitar, and keys in particular. It brings out a particular warmness that I have not found in any other compression. It makes everything so much more buttery and old-school without diminishing the quality of sound. I love to use the Lohi plugin on backup vocals. I use the “tiney” setting often to create a distant and whispery atmosphere. I also use Lohi on drums, sometimes for a more muted and understated drum sound, which I like for certain ambient-style tracks. Goodhertz makes some of my favorite plugins! They truly elevate the sounds to the next level.

Kristian Matsson The Tallest Man on Earth

I absolutely love these plugins. They’re so fun and musical to work with. I’m using them right this moment on this mix that will be the next release and there’s nothing like them. Easy to use and sounds like how it sounds in my brain.

Matthewdavid Musician & Co-Founder of [Leaving Records](http://leavingrecords.com/)

Probably every single Ableton session that I open up, whether I’m making my own music or enginering something — mastering or mixing for another artist or my own music — I put the Vulf Compressor on, usually the master.

Justin Merrill Two time Grammy-winning engineer

These Goodhertz plug-ins are amazing! I wish I found these earlier in my career to use in my mixing and creative audio processes. The Lossy and the Wow control effects are great for adding a special touch to elements in the mix, and the Midside plug-in is amazing for adding width to all sorts of sounds. Bravo on the creation of these effects Goodhertz. Highly recommend!!

Petter Nygårdh Founder, Strangers Candy

You’ve created something really great here. I’m really a geek when it comes to certain things, like music, but not when it comes to technical stuff, even if I produce a lot of music. There must be a lot of engineering hours behind everything Goodhertz, but the result for a tech failure such as myself is something that feels musical. I’ve tried most of the plugins now, and they really inspire me in the same way an old worn out guitar or bashed out drums does. I can make music with them, rather than make mixes, and that is how I like to work with this sort of stuff.

Justin Raisen Miya Folick, Kim Gordon, Angel Olsen

As a producer & mixer, I naturally lean toward destruction while still being very much in touch with the sonic infrastructure of what is at hand. Goodhertz plug-ins are the dream paint to my any canvas. They drip from everything I create…be it a big fat mess or a tight tidy corner. I just can’t stop reaching for them. every single color quenches my thirst for art. Get them all.

Spencer Stephenson AKA Botany, Austin producer

Man. Where do I begin? This stuff allows me to do everything in the box, stuff that used to take four times as long as it needed to, like bouncing my projects through the SP404 or tape machine. Your plugins allow same (or better!) analog veneer without me having to lose control of my mix by forever printing it to tape or recording it as a chunky WAV from a sampler. I couldn’t be more impressed. I’m actually proud to use this stuff.
