Heat UP 3 IS the One.

Rated 5 out of 5

Heat UP 3 is my favorite “go to” Plugin.

With a lot of high quality library. Lot of effects, filters and set for sound design presets. I use it several times in each of my projects. both for a synth and for a grand piano. for a pad, a bell, a pluck, etc… I can’t do without it. This is the best rompler I have ever used. far above the others (without ranking them). the installation of the library is very well designed (very simple). and the work of the initial audio team on the sounds is incredible.


Just Amazing!

Excellent Customer Service Support

Rated 5 out of 5

Have a good quality plugins is great but having customer service that replies fast and actually takes care of any issues for you in a practical way is something more 3rd party plugins need to have. When ever I have issues with initial audio plugin they actually practically fix it for you which is amazing instead of leaving you with the guess work.

Clifford was the adviser and very helpful I have nothing but good things to say about initial audio

Muchas gracias…!!!
