SnareBuzz is an audio effect plugin that emulates the wires of a snare buzzing when there's another instrument playing near.
Why do you want to emulate this effect if every engineer in the world has tried to get rid of it? Short: because it's cool! Long: because it doesn't exist in the DAW environment, it's something that we are all familiar with, and if you're really used to play live with a band it's weird not hearing it when recording instruments separately.
Do you imagine a Led Zeppelin recording with Bonzo's snare not buzzing?
"Music is people playing live in the same room with eye contact and feeling each other".
Attack and release controls that set how the snare reacts to the incoming signal, HP and LP filters to shape the sound of it, room ambience for a more natural feel, overall gain, panning of just the effect and dry/wet controls.
Insert it on the bass track, adjust the mix knob just a tiny bit and hear how these little wires bring life to your mix. You'll miss it when it's bypassed.

Interesting and unique plugin. You can use it as a mix of exciter and delay on drum loops or anything you like to give it a little more depth and background rythm. Offers 5 tightness modes and 5 studio models to adjust to a certain taste.
You also have a "Dry/Wet" Mix knob to blend between the dry and the wet signal, and an "Out" knob to control the output gain.
I like this plugin, but I only give 4 stars because of the unnecessary waste of screen space due to the huge upper part of the GUI. It is not necessary for using the plugin at all. The corresponding knobs can be tweaked separately. Resizing the GUI doesn't help because then the main lower interface is too small.
I am missing a toggle button to get rid off the upper part. This is also a reason for me to not use the plugin as often as I would like to.
