Roni Size talks about liking the iZotope Alloy 2 Plugin, stating, "I’m a massive fan of Alloy 2, the transient designer for getting drum loops really tight and also the maximizer for mastering quick cuts for Djing I always soft clip the back out of the Ozone 5."

Alloy 2 gives you futuristic tools, fast results and most importantly, fantastic sound. Bring character and life to every element of your mix with Alloy 2.
Far more than just a traditional channel strip, Alloy 2 is a modern twist on classic mixing. The basics have been re-imagined with forward-thinking features and time-saving flexibility. Innovative sound sculpting tools are ripe with potential for delivering your distinctive sound. And best of all, Alloy 2 allows you to focus on mixing without distraction, neatly packaging the mixing essentials in a self-contained and completely configurable plug-in that puts everything you need at your fingertips.
Very complete mixing plugin, and it sounds great. Distortion is a bit over the top and didn't necessarily do what I expected, but I can see it's purpose and I look forward to using it a lot.
This is my go to channel strip plugin. Very usable, very quick workflow, nice results. Leaves you with no time wasted. Maybe the best plugin in it's category. It is worth every cent you pay for.
