Modula Pack
"The best set of modulation plug-ins I have heard."

Bob Lentini
SAWStudio creator
www.sawstudio.com

"...I wrote music for TV and film in my own mac based recording studio. In short, I have been working with computer based music for some 20 years now, and have tried out most available music software. All of the plug ins worked without fault on my core 2 duo intel mac, running leopard 10.5.6...CPU usage by all of them is very low. The tremolo worked very well, especially with guitar and electric piano. My wurlitzer 200 sounded great through it. The chorus was very smooth. It reminded me of my favourite chorus - an old Roland Dimension D unit. The phaser has a very clear definition, and adds life to a range of sound sources, including string synth pads. It helped me reproduce the sound of Solina and Crumar string machines of the 1970's. I used the flanger on my precision bass. It added some welcome movement to the sound, and also produced a very strong stereo image. I let my son experiment with the C Delay. He was easily able to reproduce 'ping pong' multi-tap delays (like his hero The Edge of U2)...The LFO extends the range of this unit considerably. The units accurately tracked the tempo of the sequencer package that was hosting them. In short, I am very impressed."

"EXCELLENT WORK!...this plugin pack works fantastically in the SAW environment...the automation possibilities with this pack make it a superior choice for the SAWStudio user..."

Steve Berson
Audio Engineer
Total Sonic Media

"The sound is Very good. Nice combinations of old mod sounds and new funky stuff...The chorus is very rich and smooth.. Sounds great...The delay is also very nice and the whole set is in sawstudio Native format, so its totally automatable...They simply use NO processing power on my 1.6 gig system..."

"...the plugs are working very well, responding perfectly to heavy automation with virtually no CPU drain. Excellent work!"

DX Reverb Light
"This freeware verb is frighteningly good! If nothing else, it's absolutely worth the time for the free download. This little reverb sounds simply amazing, and Anwida claims it's not even 1/11th of their purchasable tool."

Douglas Spotted Eagle
Grammy-winning artist/producer

"Congratulations! DX Reverb Light has received the Shareware Music Machine Top50 Download Award. There are over 4,500 music software titles listed, and yours is one of the 50 most downloaded Macintosh programs on Shareware Music Machine."

GEQ15V
"...As with a hardware unit, you can simply start pressing buttons and turning knobs to see what sounds you get. It couldn't be easier...we found that the sound quality is exceptionally clean and clear, and that, whether we used the presets or any of our own settings, both EQs can powerfully re-shape the character of virtually any sounds fed through them...The easy usefulness and the comfortable feel of these EQs make them attractive and reliable for everyday use. Either one would make an excellent addition to any musician's set of effects tools."

"In practice, both equalizers performed admirably, and the sound quality is excellent, if not totally uncolored. AnwidaSoft have done an excellent job with these units. They look sharp, and sound great. The CPU usage is low enough to run a number of them on different channels. When I need a quality EQ, I find that I am repeatedly turning to these guys. ...you might certainly want one or both of them, as they take some of the guesswork out of the everyday EQ tasks, and may sound better than the EQs that came bundled with your host. No matter what your host is, if your current equalizer seems overly confusing to you, these might just be a necessity."

CX1V
"This affordable compressor plugin by Anwidasoft performs flawlessly and would be a great addition to your post production toolbox."

Paul Figgiani
Chief Audio Engineer
IT Conversations
Creator/Producer
The.Point podcast and Podcastrigs.com

"...ANWIDA delivers what it promises...The sound is consistently transparent, and the signal dynamic range compresses smoothly even at extreme settings. In our tests, for example, we found that the CX1V is effective in softening transients, such as from drum kits, without adding any coloration. Sometimes the transparency was so effective overall that we often checked to make sure the compressor was active...Since most musicians are usually concerned with compression rather than expansion of dynamic range, it is easy to forget that the CX1V is also an expander. However, the expansion capability worked just as well and displayed the same virtues of transparency and smoothness...In addition, the demand on CPU usage is very low, which means that on most computers there should be little problem running as many instances of the CX1V as needed for multi-track recording. In general, this uncomplicated, straightforward compressor/expander is a reliable workhorse. It does the job it's supposed to do, and it does it very well."

"What's most impressive about the CX1V is the transparency. This is not a compressor that encourages "squashing"-type special effects, but you can easily restrict the dynamic range of everything from individual instruments to program material while retaining a very natural sound...if you crave a quality compressor, check out the demo of this fine plug-in."

Craig Anderton
EQ Magazine, Nov 2002

"The GUI is very nice and the sound is excellent!!!! Both Limiter and Compressor have really good algorithms!!!!! I tried lots of compressors within the last 3 months, only the ones from Waves comes near to yours. Very good work!!!!!"

"I'm really impressed by the transparency this compressor has. With this plugin it's so easy to compress; unnoticeable, very good.
Nice looking and easy to use interface. Great compressor!"

Dipl. Ing. Christian Riesenmey

"...the sound is just as consistently clean, transparent and smooth. That makes it an excellent tool for use in both multi-tracking and mixdown. Overall, we are as favorably impressed by the L1V as we were by the CX1V, and for the same fundamental reasons that we don't mind repeating - simplicity of use and superb sound quality."

Spazio
"The plug...has a very clear and uncluttered look, sounds great and is light on CPU...there's enough there for this to be your single or 'go to' reverb."

John Havlicek
2003 SongRamp Artist of The Year

"I have to say out of all the reverb effect plugins I have (and I have all the Waves and other popular ones), you guys have a winner here with the Spazio reverb. It blows away the newer Waves IR in simplicity and power. As far as the sound goes, it's nothing short of spectacular. Clean tail outs, powerful stereo spread and on drums, it may become the only reverb I use for mixing. The CPU usage is far more efficient than the Waves IR and I can now open a seperate reverb for different tracks. This is something I can't do with the IR without using alot of CPU."

Johnny Geib
Producer/Engineer
SG Recording Studios

"I am blown away- I'm mean blown away- by this plug. This is the cleanest, most lush verb I have ever laid ears on. The presets alone are extensive and every one is just top, top shelf. The plug is very easy to use too. I tried it out test driving lots of different presets. Phenomenal. I also went back to my favorite plugs for comparison; classic, waves, ambiance- and they do not even come close. Not even in the same league...there is no reason to use anything but Spazio now. I encourage EVERYONE who uses what they think is the best verb they have ever heard- be it plugin or hardware- to check out Spazio. I'll lay money down you'll find Spazio equals, or more often, blows them out of the water. Verb solved! 10"

Dan Mullins
Producer/Engineer
Vibe Recording Studio

"...this is one hell of a reverb for the money. I'm only using it on drums for the song I'm mixing now and I must say, it stands up extremely well to the Waves and Steinberg reverb plugs I normally use. LOTS of very natural sounding rooms and surfaces in there. I wanted to crank up the pre-delay for drums on this piece and Spazio still retained the airy transparency I was looking for. It's certainly light on the CPU as well. All in all I think Anwidasoft has done some very cool work on this. They're holding their own with some pretty heavy competition and not charging a kidney for these excellent plugs."

Pete Generous
Session Drummer/Producer/Engineer
Generous Groove Productions

"...i am very IMPRESSED with the quality of this reverb. I find it very Open and airy sounding, not muddy at all. The updated room and hall algorithms are very believable and true. The plates shine and the gates rock. The fact that its NATIVE to SAWStudio is truely amazing and welcome as it is my DAW of choice. I find that CPU Usage is also very respectable. Me and my eyes really appreciate the larger plugin size as well. Guys i think you have a winner here! Congratulations!"

Carey Langille
Producer/Engineer
Ocean Sound Productions

"Thanks so much for making an incredible addition to the native options for SAW! This is a fully automateable reverb with 5 really fantastic sounding algorithms - I really like the Plate one especially. The inverse and gated verbs allow you to set up some nice effects possibilties that weren't available with any native reverb before either. Anyway - it's a lot easier to create customized presets for it than the Reverberator, it has a ton more sonic variations possible with it than the SAWStudio Freeverb, it's tails sound very smooth, the gui is very easy to work with, and for how much processing detail it must be doing based on it's sound even on my slow 1.8GHz secondary test computer it only used about 10% cpu per plug (a little less than SIR for example) - so loading up a few of these in an edl isn't a problem. Highly recommended!!"

"Wow, I had no idea the plug-ins were this great! I have worked with them on a 1 minute drum track for a few hours and I am amazed at the quality. I am sold, these are the plugs needed to create pro sound within host recording apps."

Eric VanLandingham

"These are supreme and outstanding plug-ins (and Ive tried almost every single one out there)."
