If there was ever an iconic plugin, this is it. A cult following for sure. It seems like it’s been around forever, and was the “I swear by this” plugin for a long time.
Set to unity, not much is going on. It’s clean and filters out all the low-lows. But give the gain or knee control (no one actually knows what does what on here — part of the mystique) a twist and look out. Lots of low end and lots of crazy distortion. There are no discernible harmonics, no obvious emulation. Nothing does what this does! But dang, it somehow makes things sound cool and analog-y.
Anyway, PSP keeps making sweet plugins. How about an update to this boy? Or perhaps, that is impossible.
