Omar Hakim and FabFilter

"The first time I heard about FabFilter was from a friend of mine that works for AVID. He was raving about the plug-ins and encouraged me to check them out. Then when I investigated a little more, I discovered so many of my engineering colleagues and friends were also fans and users of FabFilter plugins. Mainly producer engineers Bob Power and Neil Dorfsman. And also my Wife (Keyboardist Rachel Z) was using the products in her pre-production work."

"The first plug-in I became familiar with was the Pro-Q 3 equalizer. I was completely blown away by the sound, functionality and clarity of the controls and user interface. It seamlessly combines into one plug-in what I would normally use several plugins to accomplish. From there I kept studying the other products and saw the same level of clarity, sound quality and intuitiveness built into all of their plugins. When you get this kind of help from well designed tools, it makes your workflow fun and productive!"

"Thanks to everyone on the FabFilter team for designing and creating these wonderful music making tools!"
