This program installed without any hitches. I use Mac stuff and there was absolutely no compatibility problems. The general configuration is fairly simple. If you have ever used a tube preamp before, this should be a piece of cake. I do recommend looking at the manual of all the plugins you use. You may not see something, such as a switch or button that might do something very cool, until you read the manual.
The manual is sufficient.


My computer setup is as follows: Macbook (2.2ghz, 4gb Ram, 120 hd), with a Presonus Firepod/Firebox, and Logic Pro 8. So far, the software has worked great on every track I have tried to use it on. It really brings life to dull, muddy sounding recordings. So far, the Vintage Warmer 2 has never crashed or screwed up any audio. I am very pleased with this plugin.


I have been using the Vintage Warmer 2 for roughly 3 months. What I like about it the most is its ability to bring presence, clarity and "thickness" with out mud to my track recordings. For example, I had a drum track that was recorded a few years ago in a good studio, but when I brought the files home, the track sounded weak. I tried EQ and various other plugins to give it some body but was never fully satisfied until I got the Vintage Warmer 2. It instantly sounded better when I turned down the track volume and turned up the VW2 volume. After a few tweaks on the various knobs, I got the sound I was looking for, yay!!! So far there is nothing I can say I really don't like about this plugin. I am sure there is either a better one out there now or soon to be released, but until I find it, this one will serve me very well. Other plugins that I have tried mainly consist of the plugins that came with Logic (fat EQ, combining Compression with EQ, etc...) and the VW2 is certainly a step above those. This plugin costs around $150. It can be hard to fork over that much cash for a computer program, but all in all, if you can afford it, you won't be disappointed. Yes, I would definitely make the same choice and buy this guy again.
