      A Must Have!

      If you looking to add thickness, depth and dimension to your mixes, this is a must have! If you are interested in adding presence and warmth to your gain staging, this is a must have! And guess what, there's something here for everybody. For those who like to tweak and customize, go for it. But if you are of the drag and drop generation, there are awesome presets customized for guitars, vocals, keyboards, strings, drums, synths......you name it. And, through the UA interface, you can assigned it to multiple tracks, lessening the burden on your computer's processor. So, get it, get it.

      Quick and easy to work with. It's not as fiddly as the Studer so it speeds up decision making. Just add it on a track and call it a day!
