I also don't really like them, but that would make it more of a challenge, huh? Maybe using Attack for bass sounds? Resonance in D-Pole? I dunno. Will have a listen with the latest versions and report back
EDIT: OH MAN, these things are worse than I remember them... for a company that makes such great hardware, I don't understand how they make such terrible software... The UIs have been updated a bit graphically but they have the same controls and layout as before, as far as I can tell. PPG Wave 2.2v is largely menu driven to really get into editing a lot of the sound's guts, which makes for a terrible experience. had they spent the time to just move ONE of those menus into the main UI, it would be a pleasure to use, I bet. Attack and PPG Wave 2.2v (both VST and VST3) have a wonderful bug that CRASHES the Bitwig audio engine when the GUI is closed. This also happens when the GUI is "hidden", e.g. when changing tracks and set to only show plugins on the selected track. At least, being Bitwig, nothing is lost... except it seems that due to some other reasons it doesn't send all the edit information quickly enough, so you can easily lose the work you've done on a patch. I don't know if this bug affects any other hosts or happens on Windows. D-Pole might actually be the best of these 3 plugins, providing... well, providing the same sorts of filters that you can find in any host these days. But hey, at least it doesn't crash when closing the GUI!
EDIT 2: I strongly rescind my suggestion that using these plugins would be a good idea!
