David Kalmusky and FabFilter

"Well, the FabFilter wasn't a 'Fad'. I look at many of the tools I've used, and most of them, I tire of, or find replacements, only a few in my workflow have become 'Staples', and the FabFilter plugin set, have definitely become a staple."

"FabFilter Pro-C is the only compressor I use on the drum bus, finally... expressive parallel compression, down to one simple plugin."

"FabFilter Timeless, on a Bus / Aux send on every session, always gives me something unique, that other mixers wouldn't come up with, even guys WITH FabFilter. I find it's so configurable, customizable, that dialing in something unique, is almost instant."

"I use the synths, somewhere, in A LOT of productions, and Pro-Q is on EVERY master fader, in every mix session I have done in the last year and 1/2 (since I discovered FabFilter)"

"These tools allow me to express something unique, and different inside a mix, but aren't just 'Icing on the cake' plugins... they are at the core of every production & mix I do."
