    I just wanted you to know I have bought most of your plug-ins in the last few months. Your gear is truly amazing! Can't mix and master without them. Thanks so much for making these excellent tools. I am in the midst of some high-profile projects and am more than happy to spread the word.

    This one took me by surprise. I was amazed at the different harmonic colors this plugin is capable of creating. Works great on processing drums or individual instruments. It really has a way of sparkling up the harmonics on a synth track or synthetic bassline.
