Probably one of the most useful saturation plugins around for enhancing and rebalancing individual sources.

I did a few A/B's with this plugin, focused particularly on a comparison with industry standard Soundtoys Decapitator, and was surprised to be able to reach very similar tone. Decapitator gives a bit more low end presence, but considering this plugin is around a third of the price (not to mention the excellent price drops during sales), the results you can achieve are amazing here, and you can compensate by using a unit that generates low end-specific saturation along with it.

Use it as an exciter, after a slow attack compressor, a preamp, a channel strip for mixing into, or even as a distortion unit.

Well done, Audio Assault.

Not gonna get all long winded, but a plug this good deserves at least 5 stars. It will help transform your tracks to another level.

Each saturation mode has it's own sonic stamp and the tone shaping options will ease the need to drag in another EQ.

Can't recommend it enough! Happy distorting!.

Not sure why comments are zero, but this thing kicks. I own Decapitator. which is great, but the tweakabilty of HeadCrusher beats it 9/10 times. A little goes a long way! Thanks Audio Assault!.
