Don't know how I didn't find it sooner, but if you're reading this review you have a UA product or are considering it-the 1st-14day free trial! The 2nd? Other things may do something similar thing but in general (this isn't crazy processor intensive...but stack all the others you've got running...) you get the UAD extra processing power if you've got a Shark device in your set up. Kick ass plugin already & if you can use that lighter load on your computer? Easy choice & excellent product. I've used it on everything I've done since I've got it.
