    Though my product wasn't in stock as indicated when I ordered it, FrontEnd got in touch with me to let me know and make sure I wanted to move forward with the order. They ordered it for me and it arrived quicker than I had expected. Lots of great communication.

    UAD Quad Neve's DSP bundle has become the "go-to" plug-in's for my mixing and mastering. Amazing tonal colouration and ease of use. Now, I spend a lot less time during the mix-down aspect of a session! highly recommend it
