Favorite PSP plug-ins:

"I've been using PSP plug-ins on virtually every project I work on.  My particular favorites have been the PSP VintageWarmer (mostly for Vocals)…..The Lexicon PSP42 ( for Guitars and Vocals)…..and the PSP Saturator ( for basically  “rescuing”  all Keyboards and Guitars).

What I love about the PSP array of plug-ins, is that they are “tweaky” enough to satisfy the ( admitted) audio geek/ control freak  in me, yet simple enough to not interrupt my basic desire to work quickly and efficiently. "
