Version reviewed: 1.6 on Windows

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 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!.
