this does what it says and sounds basically like a tube tech program equalizer. You know what it is, its a simulation of a hot-rodded pultech basically. This ahs the ebst saturation of any of my program equalizer plugins. Soft tube's good at that. I just sued this on a kick drum the other day and was totally happy with the result. Used it to bring back some bottom that got lost in compression and to add some grit by running really hot into her.
