Now Available: 14-Day Free Trial of Howard Benson Vocals

Joey Sturgis Tones is excited to introduce a new update to one of our most popular releases: Howard Benson’s signature vocal plugin. Effective immediately, JST is adding support for the most-requested feature for this powerhouse vocal processor – free trials!

For the first time ever, vocal producers, engineers, mixers, and home recording enthusiasts can enjoy all the components of legendary producer Howard Benson’s vocal chain absolutely free for 14 days.

Due to the incredible surge in demand for free trials following the launch of our versatile reverb plugin Sky Box, we turned to the JST Community to see what everyone wanted next. The overwhelming majority made it clear that Howard Benson Vocals was at the top of their list – and it’s easy to see why.

Since launching, thousands of engineers have added this elite modern vocal chain to their mixes. Created in collaboration with Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, The All-American Rejects, and many more), Howard Benson Vocals is an incredibly powerful plugin offering compression, EQ, doubling, spatial widening, delay, reverb, and limiting in a single, intuitive interface.
