Disappointing, this thing has no on off switch for one, just a bypass in the corner. Pop it in the fx slot it is already on and absolutely clipping your bus. This thing has no subtlety at all even when backed down it is just far too aggressive for anything at all. I generally don't complain about free things but this is too much and folks deserve to be warned. Perhaps it behaves differently in other DAWs but in Cakewalk it is just wall of Hiss that overloads all of the channels and not really adding anything to the Bass. I'll stick to my other stomps and saturation plug ins for now.
