Really good waveshaper / clipper. It can produce varying, non-generic saturation curves, including asymmetric ones. So, if you want to go beyond your standard hard- and softclipping curves, definitely try out this plugin.

I would prefer if the parameter ranges / controls would work in smaller increments, since the controls are quite jumpy and the lightest turn of the knobs will get you into heavy-handed territory quickly. Not always do you want to get into full distortion, sometimes you just want to slightly saturate a signal.

The oversampling is working as expected, even though it will not completely remove aliasing with heavy setting applied to treble material.

If there is going to be a version 3 of the plugin, I would love to see a simple emphasis / de-emphasis EQ (maybe a simple baxandall EQ with automatic compensation of the emphasis) being added, since this will drastically improve the utility and allows you to alter which part of the spectrum the saturation will affect primarily.
