"I use it on my stereo buss, individual tracks like bass, guitar and vocals and on sub groups.  I have yet to find a use that the HG-2 doesn't enhance. The Black Box team are engineers and musicians making tools for us engineers and musicians that just WORK!"

Trevor Case

Trevor's ability to enhance the emotional impact of a song while ensuring that it sounds great no matter where it's played has allowed him to work a wide range of genres and clients including Friends of Foes, Missy Elliot, Divinity Roxx, Kelly Clarkson, Flatland Sound Studio, Jesse Brown, Terrain, Troye Sivan, Mario and Bass Invaders.

"The HG-2 stands alone in the industry. It’s completely unique and feels alive.  I use it exclusively for mastering and can achieve anything from subtle harmonic enhancement to thick, saturated mix reinforcement. I’m inspired every time I power it up.  The HG-2 is  so effective, it often feels like cheating."


Jack Black BoxJack Douglas

"The Black Box is a fantastic tool in the studio! I have found great control over the tonal shape of a signal as well as the harmonic texture added. This unit commands beautiful tone out of otherwise sterile sources!"
