    I use this Box on a regular basis, like all of the time, as template on kickdrum, snare and bass guitar. It is a magic thing, if not overdone, everything gets louder and clearer, punchier, more direct, meaty, also crystal clear, if it needs to be, this is a kind of holy grail box I was searching for. You can make everything sound better with this one. Recommended!

    A saturation unit that can be bent to your whims; it performs small miracles or larger ones should you desire it. Truly a desert island plug in that mustn't be missed should you wish to be a truly dangerous engineer or producer.

    Just used this for there first time on a mastering project to add some nice harmonic sizzle. Excellent result. Looking forward to using this on a lot of things, from mixing to mastering in future.

    I don't use it as a distortion, for me it is an excellent sound and spatial modeler, it creates the right 3D depth to the sound
  • Desert Island Saturator

    Swiss knife to make the sound clear and loud with dynamics, pleasant gentle to hard saturation, the two saturation modes are good and really different. The calibration and sat freq can help you position the elements in the mix in a not so obvious way. This great piece of software runs as smooth and fast as your lightest native DAW plugin, it can be used in every track. Everything is dialed on a single window so setup is fast. It is possible to add a little bite, with parallel mixing. I am very happy with this. Try it!

    Well, maybe not everything, but most things. Can be used lightly, even without adding obvious audible saturation, to lift elements just a little and make them sound more polished and solid.
    I’ve used it on at least one track (and usually several) in every mix I’ve done since I got it.
    Truly indispensable.

    This plugin adds presence, air and weight, always A/B when adjusting the settings to hear what effect its making...you can easily go off the radar if u crank it too much. it is a great plugin and I use it on my mix bus and master buss. works great as a touch up tool to ur mix or master.
    I alternate between This and the Vertigo VSM-3 make my job easier!

    Stunning plugin. At first, I thought: I don’t need another saturation plugin, I have Decapitator... but this is different. It’s cleaner, punchier and louder! Magic.
    One of the best plugins I’ve bought.
    Thanks Black Box!

    Huge fan of what the HG-2 can add to a mix. I've been using this plugin on almost every hip-hop mix that I've worked on recently. Slapping the HG-2 on an instrumental bus is ideal if you need that final glue/polish.
