“Filter Forge does more than any of my other plugins all in one spot! I'm a kid in a candy store right now just having fun trying everything out. Fun, fun!”

“It's a powerful and logical way of creating effects that's relatively easy to learn by seeing how other effects are built. Creating filters from scratch is time-consuming, but for a wider user group, it's a great way to modify already-created effects.”
