This new Black Box HG-2MS is a welcomed upgrade with its new flexibility. The additions like TMT, Density, Mono Maker, Stereo Width, calibration, MS capabilities, and selected frequency saturation, this plugin checks all the boxes for me. It’s my new go-to for acoustic guitars, percussion, drum loops and has been used on the last 20 mixes I’ve done (not gonna name drop).
9099 has a couple secret weapons hidden inside! My favorite being the Gates listen function along with the High Q for additional lo freq love!
