EY and FabFilter

"I first used FabFilter plug-ins whilst working in studio with Wondagurl. She was using the Pro-Q 3 and as I was watching what it did, it made me realize how efficient, and how fine detailed that plug-in was. I love how the plug-ins look and how aesthetically pleasing they are. So helpful with my work and allows me to really fine tune my sounds and bring out the best in them."
