Where did this plugin come from? a 3 band "everything" effect?? It actually looked useful... I thought there must be a catch or some other compromise, so I downloaded it to find out.
The GUI: Nothing superfluous, no screw heads or ventillation slits, no nostalgic marketing fantasies, just pure usefulness. I find sliders to be the easiest for the eyes to gauge at a glance. I've never seen a multi-FX plug with such a small gui that intelligently fits so much value in one non-animated or multi-page oriented place. Maybe I have, but I don't remember, and I never felt like making a review of one before.
The Sound: Super tight sounding, no fluff, no snake oil, nothing that "only an audio phd can understand." I would have no qualms whatsoever putting this in a mastering chain. It actually does something to the sound, and you don't need to look at your meters to make sure, it's a plugin that does just what you expect it to, but better.
Overall: Everything is right where it should be on this plugin. It's a small arsenal of effects that can easily replace 5 times its weight in other quite good plugins, and aside from the limiter and reverb (yes it has reverb!) everything is multiband. Yes, yes and yes! I'm giving this plugin a 10 for overall high level of quality, as well as an unbeatable price-performance ratio :)
