Ricardo Sangiao and FabFilter

"FabFilter is one of those brand names that has some serious clout in the world of audio. For me, FabFilter plugins are the premiere choice, containing all of the tools and resources I need to hone in on my craft."

"FabFilter’s plugins are the outcome of superior sonic processing-meets-genius GUI. With these plugins, my masters not only sound better than ever, but they also help streamline my workflow so I am able to shoulder a larger client base."

"If I had to name a favorite product of mine by FabFilter, it would have to be the Pro-L 2. I like to do shootouts between limiters, and so far this plugin is the undisputed winner when it comes to this capability. It allows me to take control of the limiting stage in ways no other limiter in the market can. It comes with a preset I tweaked for them called 'Hip Hop Mastering RS', it’s a good starting point for urban songs. I look forward to future plugin and product releases that help take my craft to the next level."
