The one from the advertisement up there (imagine an emoticon pointing upwards and a little to the right). I really liked it on an acoustic guitar project I was mixing, it kinda softened 'em up and opened 'em up at the same time. I recommend it, and it's free for two more days (if you don't mind getting emails from Plugin Alliance). Haven't had much more time with it, anyone else?

I tried it, but it didn't seem any better than the mcdsp 6030 in opto mode or the uad la2as i already use. It seemed good though.

downloaded, but have yet to test it. I like simple plugs like this for rough mixes, and if it might end up staying.

I downloaded it and opened up a track I haven't mixed. I put it on a backing vocal and it seems cool. I probably wouldn't go out of my way, because I have the McDSP 3060 and it covers the opto thing fine. I do like that, because it's the "guitar pedal" version there isn't a meter, so you have to listen for its sound/effect on the source.
