Neal Merrick Blackwood and FabFilter

"I learned about FabFilter products from hearing other engineers tell me how good they sounded. Skeptically, I had to try them. I was very pleased to find out that they were right. I noticed right away how clean and wonderful the FabFilter plugins made my mixes sound. My favorite FabFilter plugin so far, is the FabFilter Pro-L limiter. I have to come to use this limiter as the final 'icing on the cake' on the master buss for mixing. The Pro-L really helps make my mixes sound more clear and focused."
