Since the 70's (Model 250 Aural Exciter Type III)

By sw80, 26/10/2012
The Aphex Aural Exciter III is a harmonic generating plug-in that is modeled after the classic Aural Exciter from Aphex. The Exciter has been used since the mid 70’s and has made some really good albums of our time. It was great to hear that they decided to bring this to the software realm so us engineers of today could still have access to such a great bundle. The Aphex Aural Exciter III is can be used on Windows and Mac systems. It works with any version of Pro Tools for either system including Pro Tools HD.

UTILIZATION

Installing it didn’t take long, but it was a bigger install than I thought that it would be. It took up more hard disk space than I thought it would. Using it as a plug-in for Pro Tools has gave me another useful tool to have for mixing songs. It does cost 495 dollars and that does seem a lot to pay for just one simple plug-in but you will have to try it to see how good it actually is.

SOUND QUALITY

I do wish that it had a demo download on it before we purchased it that way we could know if it was something we really wanted. We sort of took a shot in the dark when purchasing this off of word of mouth because we had no idea how good it was or how it was going to work with our set up. We just went ahead and purchased it and have been using it almost every single session since the time we purchased it (purchased it in the spring of 2010).

OVERALL OPINION

I highly recommend this to anyone who is a Pro Tools user, if you are a certified Pro Tools user I am sure you already have this plug-in or have used this plug-in. It is definitely a must have!

4 channel headphone amp (HeadPod 4)

By stompboxjon, 04/11/2012
The Aphex HeadPod 4 is a 4 channel headphone amplifier that has individual volume controls for each of the headphones and a master volume that can control all of them. The Aphex HeadPod 4 is very small and portable; it has a compact design and an affordable price tag. First thing that surprised me is it is not as heavy as I thought it would be, it seems to be made out of more of a plastic material and is kind of cheap. I am still very cautious with the Aphex HeadPod 4 because I am afraid if it gets put in the wrong bag and some other gear ends up on top of it that it could crack it wide open.

The Aphex HeadPod 4 has analog and digital inputs and with the ability to change the volume on each individual headphone is a huge bonus because everyone may not want their sound as loud as I like mine so this is a way that all members can be happy. The Aphex HeadPod 4 has 4 different stereo amplifiers that will assure you of a great sound to each one of your headphones that is hooked up. With high headroom and low distortion, makes the Aphex HeadPod 4 a must have for any band especially for live bands and bands that practice a lot.
Though the whole unit seems to be a little “cheap” or plastic made. The actual jacks that you headphones go into are made very well. So you will not have to worry about them shorting out or getting loose at any point. They are durable as can be and made of metal. Overall, I am still on the fence with the Aphex HeadPod 4. It does provide great sound to your headphones and with the individual controls makes everyone happy. But with it costing 200 dollars and not being as solid as I like my gear to be could make me want to go with a different headphone amp in the future.
