This is a great eq, i usually only use parametric eq and saturation, but this has brought me back to emulation eq's. The band solo buttons are great for finding the meat of the frequencies and band on off buttons are great for seeing if you have actually made the sound better or worse. The saturation is gorgeous on drums, just get that blue light flashing a little and your cooking. To conclude its a good middle ground between agressive and subtle, every control feels smooth and your unlikely to be led astray. Awesome sauce.
