    Pretty nice way to color a track

    I would like to see more of these types. They are easy to use and sound great. There are several distortion types to choose from. The problem I sometimes have is that the same manufacturer can simulate different types of saturation in the same plug-in, but they look different and have the same type of saturation. The problem is that the same manufacturer can simulate different types of saturation in the same plug-in, but make them appear different. Even if you change the quality and sound quality of the tape, tube, etc. in one mode, the system and distortion are the same, even if it is a different saturation in a different plugin. It means that the system and distortion are the same even if the mode changes the quality and sound of tape, tube, etc. For example, softube saturation softube harmonics Even though the plug-ins and directions are different, the underlying processing is the same, so the sound image will be similar. This is a big disadvantage. It is natural that the sound changes by modeling, and it is natural that it changes, but because the processing methods are similar, the sound image is similar. I know I am asking a lot. I know I’m asking too much, but I think it’s a good idea to have waves Non Liner… in one plugin.
