P&M VST plugins test

Some time ago I discovered on their plugin series Plug&Mix. Those plugins are affordable and cover most of the aspects of mixing and "in the box" production from compressore, EQ, amp simulators, reverbs, to ... you name it.
The most I liked 3 of those which aren't covered by my other plugin series: Maxxbass, Stereoizer and Clarisonix. Here's first test I made for Clarisonix and Stereoizer:
Test one, on strings section. Nothing panned, all in the center.

 Test two, on a more rock mix.

Merry Christmas

I've been way too busy with my job and concerts, so, unfortunately no new music, no new sample packs, no videos...
Yet, still a reason to joy, the best Christmas tree I ever had:
Cheers and Happy Holidays.
