James Hannigan and FabFilter

"I've been using FabFilter Volcano 2 for some time now, and it's one of the best and most accessible filter plug-ins I've ever had the pleasure of working with. In fact, there aren't many tracks of mine created in the last few years that don't use it in some shape or form - that's how indispensable it has become. It's my 'go to' plug-in when I want mangle a sound, create rhythmic effects or new textures, play with filter sweeps or pretty much anything else needing added character. The results are a lot more musical than some other filter plug-ins I could mention, and that's why I believe FabFIlter Volcano to be an invaluable tool for composers."
