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
by Tony Kuhn
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!
Amazing emulation of the analog gear!
Makes everything sound better
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.
I was sceptical at first, but seeing it being used by so many made me try it. I find it easy to just make anything sound better with it. Love it!

This blackbox is so useful. A great sounding crafting tool works magic on vocals to give them presence. Could easily be used on basically every track to help give them their own solid place in the mix. Seriosuly DEMO this product, you’ll see.
