It's pretty good. Basically a multiband headcrusher/decapitator.

Problems for me are it eats a good deal of CPU, and because of the added complexity I find myself reaching for it less than I thought I would. I also have their single band headcrusher and I go for that a bit more often because when I go multiband I'm not sure I'm getting much of an improvement over the regular treatment but I do waste more time trying to find that improvement by fiddling with the bands.

But I'm very glad this is in the toolbox. One of those things that when you need it it's exactly the right thing.

It's terrible, pops and crackles when automating and huge CPU spikes.
If your plugin is a C++ creation, please don't say so.
If it is, pop round Marcos, he has just bought you a Mac to port it.

Not critising, but genuinely interested, what would you automate distortion for ?
