Ohm Force Ohmboyz
The Ohm Force Ohmboyz delay plug-in was easy to install and I had it up and running within my Pro Tools system minutes after purchasing and downloading it from their website. I had no compatibility issues at all, and since I installed this plug-in it hasn't given me any problems whatsoever. The interface of this plug-in is easy to follow, even though there is a lot going on. It has sections for presets, delay, master output, filter, distortion and and LFO. It is a very diverse plug-in, but since everything is laid out smartly and conveniently, it is easy to follow. I don't have a manual for the Ohm Force Ohmboyz, but you don't really need it if you don't have one.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I am currently running the Ohm Force Ohmboyz on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4 that is powered by a Digi 002 R audio interface. I have never had a problem running this plug-in within this configuration, as it has always run smoothly for me. I am able to run a few of these at once, but I would recommend using this plug-in on auxiliary tracks to save CPU power because this is a pretty powerful piece of software.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Ohm Force Ohmboyz for about six months and have become quite attached to this plug-in. I find myself using it all the time, not only for delay but for the other features it has as well. It is one of the most versatile delay plug-ins out there, with a wide array of capabilities available. The price of this plug-in is a lot cheaper than you would think and is absolutely worth the price. It has an incredible sound quality that is easy to use and understand. Ohm Force makes some great plug-ins, and the Ohm Force Ohmboyz is one of the best that they make.

Ohm Force Ohmboyz
Easy installation and authorization without headaches.
Special effect based delays, filters, and LFOs.
So the sound starts through four delay lines in parallel (can not activate one, two or three) without feedback but with each pan. It is then routed to one or two (optional) delays, always in parallel, but this time with feedback. Each of these lines has a filter (LPF, BPF, HPF, Peak / Notch) resonance. When choosing GMP or Peak, you can adjust the width of the filter ("Q"). Also for each line, is entitled to a distortion floor and finally a High Shelf filter that allows if necessary to mitigate the acute (useful for example when using the distortion.) Finally, if both delays are activated, we a cross-feedback ("balance") that crosses Feedback or allowed to evolve independently.
Beyond, and original enough to like effect "delay", you can assign an LFO (ten waveforms possible) for most parameters (some for which it does not make sense are excluded.)
Furthermore, all parameters can be controlled via MIDI and can dynamically enchainer completely different configurations ("morphing") by the method common to all Ohm Force plugs. Many presets "factory" are available and a manual clear and French.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Never had any problems running or stability of Mac Pro with Mac OS 10.6.8 and Digital Performer. CPU resource consumption is minimal.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this for three years. I am aware that many opinions have already been given, but by an overview of the tools I use for a long time and I particularly like, I could not ignore it.
What is magical OhmBoyz is a plug-in, organized after all fairly simple and does not involve setting very exotic, is able to offer an almost infinite number of effects, often very original and sometimes really crazy. I use it often on drumloops that can be radically transformed, but it can get interesting results on the song or almost anything in fact, including including tablecloths. Note that filters sound remarkably well.
After that, it is not necessarily obvious to know in advance what we will get when you get into a crushing sequence OhmBoyz. But since the time tested and having the presets available on all kinds of loops, I started to have preferences. A knowledge of the presets I choose depending on the situation and I refine as appropriate. But if you have a little time, it can be very creative from scratch and carve an effect parameter by parameter and then adding LFOs. Initially, I chose the "classic skin" because I like to have a clear vision of what I do. As such, and like others, I rather regret not being able to have an overview of assignments LFOs. But it is a plug still very well designed and is in no complicated setup. Of course, the adventurers who like to give it to chance, prefer the "funky skin".
In total, it can hit or it can hover but it is a tool for creating stunning. The kind of effect that can open on inspiration leads you in unexpected ways. Even with a great habit, OhmBoyz will offer surprises.

Ohm Force Ohmboyz
Installation is no problem it?
as most of the time trs quickly and easily on Mac.

Have you experienced any incompatibility?
No!

Gnrale configuration is easy?
Not Premire minutes. The architecture is a bit complicated to understand. But once entered, a will alone! An implementation a little clearer would be greatly bnfique.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
Better to read and tinker effect at the same time, with a clear understanding of the schmilblick.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

What is the configuration of your computer?
Intel Mac laptop 2gh and 2g of ram, Motu Ultralite soundcard

The software works he correctly on this configuration?
Impec '! Impressive to see the little resources they eat from what he spits.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
a few weeks now

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
We can not fiddle as possible: lfo do you want here's the preset morphing that can push a little the evolution dja sound impressive. My job is prfre mode "sustained loop": the incoming sound and are strokes dlais taps, the feedback is turned back (but do not cause feedback) and its rpt line is the infinite volumes coasting. It may well continue to change the sr flies. With two active channels, it's like a tit for tat dialogue.
Some complaints: a spit so that sometimes you have no ears prvenir gun (I had some surprises in the headphones). Limiter output would ncssaire t.
Also, I aprci a panel for the LFO grate. Not always practical to juggle a knob to change the other one lfo at the top and have all rglages.
Finally, it was very cool t able to use only two filters and distos by cutting the delay.
Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Few. Difficult to compare because the one is in a less conventional approach. This time limit is closer to the instrument effect IMHO. Spread the word: a delay does not replace a conventional (but also useful for other things).

How do you report qualitprix?
Excellent! = Increasing not to mention the group buy and rductions for a student, and the packs ... enough to put the original in his cot less prods.

Exprience with, you will do again this choice?
Ah yes.

Ohm Force Ohmboyz
- Installation is it without problem?
Easy

- Have you experienced any incompatibility?
No

- The configuration gnrale is easy?
No. Trs rglage equipped with many, we can not say that the plug-Ohm Force are "easy" take over. Ohmboyz is more complex than traditional time limit. But it's not Everest either and in return, what possibilities!

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
The manual? What manual?
Like what is not so complicated that a!

In fact, reading is widely recommended. Then, once the plug taken over (which is all the same rather quickly), was going alone.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
Premire use on a P4 (on laptop) and a Pentium Mobile (still on phone), dsormais on a Quad Core Q6600 with 4 GB of RAM.
Using 99% as Sonar. Everything with a RME Multiface and Echo Indigo I / O

- The software works he correctly on this configuration?
Never had any ppin

- What performance? (If quantifiable)
Low resource utilization. Especially for the taff!

- This software + hardware configuration is stable?
No worries.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
Two years, I think.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The most are, first, that sounds a race to the death of his killer mre. And the possibilities.
The least, it is the interfaces. There is a choice between a "classic skin" (the photo of the product AF) could be more or Russia Funky Skin, more arrowroot, but somewhat obscure especially beginners.
Which is stupid, it can use only a skin (a shall decide to install). Too bad we can not switch from one another depending on the kind of approach we want to have at the moment: prcise with the classic skin, more feeling with the funky skin.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Yes

- How do you report qualitprix?
Excellent. Especially since apparently rgulirement Ohm Force is organizing the "group buy" (buying groups) that permit it to be even cheaper.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Carrment.
I would not have bought a 80 time limit. There trs trs of freeware and pascherware correct and that of the Sonitus suite comes in Sonar is great.

Except that the Ohmboyz is another world. Furthermore it sounds extremely good, it opens up horizons sound standards. The possibilities go far del the simple time limit.

I would not recommend forcment who wants the time limit the father is saying just rptitions. There are many other products trs simple a.
on the other hand, who wants to go further in trs sound management of its time limit and above its use as a time limit vritable matriau sound, this is a Ohmboyz purchase more than recommended. I would say even essential.
Besides that, like his buddies in the range Ohm Force, carrment gnrateur of ides.

Problem-free installation, nice interface, enjoyable, a bit complex for work prcis and clean, not too greedy in resources (at least There's worse), no man but not needed.

No stability problem of any crash if not to be overwhelmed by the sound because it was too turned knobs, a rgal

It should be an unaccustomed handling machinery, etc. lfo. It's actually much less "gas factory" that can have a look.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

trs not greedy, stable

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for two weeks, and I now have trouble without it. It's a good TRRRES plug, complete with opportunities cratrices terrible. The presets are duly. Even when it is necessary to be careful when making rglages a little extreme, if a loop you can not prvenir pter mouth! (Scuritlimiter ass)
To its limits, even without any momentum, the plug is from a background noise and amplify dmesurment, collapse, leaving, and you keep the res'effondrer contemplate a espce body makes her little life before you, self-sufficient, always renewing itself. Damn!

Ohm Force Ohmboyz
No problem for installation is very well done. The installer automatically detects répertroire plug-ins. I have not detected any inconsistency for the moment.
The manual (in French) is quite detailed, but only in electronic format. There is also a tutorial is not bad on the site. Proc

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

: PII 333 MHz
RAM: 256 MB

The plug-in takes very little time machine (2 or 3% overall). When you force some adjustments to the extreme, it takes longer (~ 10%), but we still want it, it's pretty rare.
Currently no crash to mourn.

OVERALL OPINION

I use for almost six months on almost all my songs! The effects achieved are varied. At first it's a bit difficult to get started because the plug-in is very rich. But once we know we need it constantly. We can get a whole bunch of base effect (simple delays, cross-feedback delays, chorus, flanger etc.) very easily, or enter completely new sounds, always with a few clicks once you understood the operation.
Ohm Force offers two prizes: a $ 10 introductory price (you can pay by check in francs equivalent, they are French) without commercial license restricted to 16 bits. The commercial license is a bit more spicy ($ 200), but well worth the price since all versions of plug-ins are supplied with (DX, VST for Mac and PC, with two different skins)

In short a really good plug-in, I hesitated in buying the pro version but if it over again, well I would do it with your eyes closed!
