    I just added these 2 plugins to my Reason 11.0 whatever I used them on a track that I have been working on and the depth clarity and impact of the track was transformed from o.k. to wow! I had no Idea that my kit could sound so good.

    I remember everyone taking a quick breath when we saw an Aphex Aural Exciter back in the 80s in the gear shop. It had quite the reputation. It's a VST 3.0 plugin with a 7 day trial... will have to try it out.

    It is really easy to overuse the exciter...
    Rather than run it as an insert, I run it in AX Mode on it's own FX Send. If something is a little dull or needs life... sending just a little signal to the exciter brings it back.

    Yes, use it in a send bus, not directly inserted onto audio tracks, but as always experiment and ymmv.

    Abbey Road saturator , Softube Saturation Knob, aphex Vintage Exciter, dbx 160 various presets can really do nice pixie dust things to mixes , drums drum kits bass , guitars et al. The dbx 160 with variations seems to be the most versatile with it's arsenal of presets.
    Appling Waves plugins to Reason 11 is qualitatively transformative as nitro is to the internal combustion engine.

    Lately, my favorite is the UAD Fatso on the drum bus. Even with samples, I can dial in just enough to give the drums some oomph they didn’t have before. And I like what it does to the cymbals.

    And yes, I know this is obtainable with cheaper, native plugins, but this just happens to be my favorite right now.
