PSP Audioware VintageWarmer 2
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.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.

PSP Audioware VintageWarmer 2
PSP's, which stands for Professional Sound Projects, VintageWarmer is a compressor/limiter and analog emulator plug-in designed for a variety of formats including VST and RTAS. I was running a VST version of this plug-in in Cubase SX until I switched to Pro Tools LE. There is now a PSP VintageWarmer 2 plug-in which comes with this original one and another modified one, but I've only used the original one. The configuration of the plug-in isn't too difficult to follow, as I found it pretty easy to use four or five years ago when I had it and wasn't as experienced as I am today. It's got parameters for drive, knee, speed, release, and ceiling. It also has low and high sections with parameters for adjust, frequency, mix, and output. A manual isn't something that is necessary in my opinion.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I was running the PSP VintageWarmer in Cubase SX 2.0 mostly and later SX 3 on a Hewlett Packard Pavilion dv8000 PC lap top with a 3.0 Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM. I was running everything through a MOTU 896 HD audio interface. I was able to run the VST version of this plug-in pretty smoothly, but I tended only to use one or two of them if at all so I wasn't exactly taxing out my system with it. If you have a decent enough system where you can currently running your DAW with some larger plug-ins already, you should be okay.

OVERALL OPINION

There is definitely a good amount that can be done with the PSP VintageWarmer. It isn't the most realistic analog compressor and saturation emulator that I've used, but it will definitely do an okay enough job for most situations and definitely in home studios. The two best things about it is it's price and it's versatility, as you're definitely getting a good amount of differing tones for a small price. I'd recommend at least trying out the demo version if you're looking to supplement your plug-in suite with something like this.

PSP Audioware VintageWarmer 2
PSP Audioware's VintageWarmer 2 is an analog saturation plug-in that has a variety of uses. I only recently starting using the Vintage Warmer 2 plug-in as previously I only had experience with the original one. The plug-in isn't free but it can be had for a rather low price and is downloadable straight from PSP's website. It's not a hard process to get this up and installed so I wouldn't worry about that much at all - just make sure you've got a compatible system, although it will run on both Mac and PC systems and in just about every plug-in format you can think of. The interface of Vintage Warmer 2 has a lot going on, but isn't tough to break down. When you buy the Vintage Warmer 2, you get the full plug-in plus the original version and a Micro Warmer version. The main plug-in has got knobs for controlling the overall output drive, low and high EQ control, a knee compressor with speed and release controls, as well as options for using it as a hard limiter. I haven't had a look at the manual for Vintage Warmer and don't expect to be needing it anytime soon.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

In recent times I've been using the PSP Audioware VintageWarmer 2 on the master buss only, but I've also used it for mixing, and either way my system has been able to handle it. It doesn't seem like it will take up too much of your processing power to begin with, but of course it helps to have a stable system. I've got Pro Tools 9 running on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM, but I've also used it on other systems without problems. I'd be surprised if anyone had issues related to performance with this one...

OVERALL OPINION

Those in the market for an analog saturation tool to warm up your digital recording need to check out PSP Audioware's VintageWarmer 2. While it's not as good as the Crane Song Phoenix bundle, it's still very good and is great for both mixing and mastering. It will also cost you considerably less than Phoenix. In my opinion, no plug-in is like using real analog gear, but in the absence of having that type of gear, Vintage Warmer will take you a long way. Definitely check out the demo to get an idea of what I'm talking about.

PSP Audioware VintageWarmer 2
One thing I can say about PSP plugins is that they are stable, light, and quick to install. I've never had a single issue and I've been using them for years. Well, I used 1 forever and finally got 2 because I liked the original so much. The manual is great and informative, although I must say after all these years of using Vintage Warmer I'm still not entirely sure what it is exactly. I'm fairly sure it's a tube compressor or preamp emulation. At this point I really don't care because I know what it does, and I like what it does. The manual isn't totally required because if you've used anything like this before you won't have trouble figuring out the controls.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I originally used Vintage Warmer as a mastering plugin. It just makes the mixes POP more to my ears. I use it with Cubase and Pro Tools sometimes. I later found that if I used it on tracks that sounded muffled or bland it would magically liven them up and bring them into the mix with a lot more grace. It really became my "last resort" plugin before I forced myself to do a retake of a bad track. Just when I think a track is beyond saving, I put vintage warmer on it and I swear more times than not it's suddenly usable. Not only usable but actually really great. Usually there's not even much tweaking involved. I can actually run a bus with VW in it and run whatever bad tracks I have through that bus. It does the same magic to all of them.

When I got Vintage Warmer 2 I was a little upset at first. I felt like I couldn't get the same sound out of it that I got with 1 and I didn't like that. However once I figured out the new controls it won me over. I now like it even more.

OVERALL OPINION

I think Vintage Warmer might be my favorite plugin. Okay, that's a stretch. But in terms of most used plugins, it's probably in the top 3. There's always one or two tracks on every song I do that want to be difficult. PSP VW fixes them right up most of the time. A warning though, too much of this plugin can really kill a mix big time if you aren't careful. Especially if it's in your master bus. It's a supplemental plugin. Not made for extreme use.
