Generally, I'd say that at that price (74 $) it's a very good deal. Lots of delay-based effects, heavy on stereo movement, and quite a bit of pitch and/or amplitude tracking. They're just the ticket if you love to transform sounds into everything from haunting vocoded chords to degraded mush. In a way, this reminds me of a plug-in (and less expensive) version of Bias' SFX Machine. |
One note of warning though, be careful of not blowing your speakers, especially when you're playing around with the resonant filters.
One thing I really appreciate is that many, if not all the plug-ins, allow you to control the level of dry to wet signal. It's also possible to patch plug-ins together, a lot like the old days of patchable analog beasts. You can use the amplitude level of a drum loop to control the opening and closing of a filter on a voice, for example. Some of the plug-in parameters may seem a bit complex for those of use that that don't have a complete grasp of digital audio theory, but no worry, there's enough variety for all levels of users. Finally, you've got to love the many ID graphics that give a special identy to a number of the plug-ins.
