This product was released in 2002 which explains the lack of reviews

UI: 10/10
The classic skin is clean and friendly, and is the one I prefer. There is also a "funky" skin available which looks very H.R.Geiger and nasty indeed (but for general every day work I recommend using the classic skin).

Sound: 10/10
The sound quality of the distortion algorithms sounds excellent to my ears, nothing to complain about there. No matter how much you push it to the limits it seems to stay "intelligble" if that makes sense. It also has an "oversampling"/high quality mode which can clean up the sound a little if that's what you want. It does distortion brilliantly and effortlessly, and it just sounds wicked! With a little tweaking you can also cover a range of treatments from subtle and warm to extreme and nasty. Great for drums, synth basses and leads, whatever you want to beef up (or destroy!)

Features: 9/10
For what is really just a distortion/overdrive unit, it can really be tweaked to get all manner of distorted and warms sounds, from subtle to psychotic. The feedback parameter allows sounds to be given very tasty feedback like certain amps, and the fact that it is multi band distortion (up to four bands) means you can tailor the distortion to sound however you want. It's got heaps of distorion types as well which all colour the sound in different ways. There's also the interesting feature of being able to set a time length which controls how long it takes to morph between presets. Haven't used this in the context of a mix yet, but it allows for some interesting results. Did I mention it's easy to use? Because it really is

Documentation: 10/10
To be honest, I haven't looked at the manual at all. Haven't needed to. Just so easy to use. So for that reason docs get a 10

Presets: 7/10
The presets that ship with it are decent enough, covering a range of styles and treatments, but it's not until you start tweaking predatohm on your own material that is starts to shine.

Customer support: 9/10
Haven't needed it for this plug, but I know from experience the support is good and some of the OhmForce designers/developers lurk round these parts (KVR) so help is always at hand

Value for money: 10/10
79 euros is a very decent price for a very high quality distortion plugin. There are alternatives which may have more features, but they cost more, and I won't name them here because of the review policy. For 79 euros, this is outstanding value, especially for those producing music that needs nasty or warm elements to it

Stability: 9/10
No probs here. Quite fair on the CPU as well

Summary:
A top shelf distortion plugin which has a great amount of tweakability, to get your distortion treatments sounding perfect. I'll be reaching for this one alot, that's for sure
