Not hugely impressed. Seems a bit erratic. Sometimes it's dull, sometimes harsh. Doesn't generally add much "Vibe" either way. What I will say is it's good for adding saturation to dynamic sources. If you stick a solid state preamp emulator on a vocal you might find that the loud parts of the vocal are super distorted and the softer parts are super clean. This sounds like it's doing a decent job of softly saturating the whole dynamic range in a characteristically tubey manner. So try it on vocals but it might be a bit uninspiring on electronic sources which don't have much dynamic range anyway. CPU usage is surprisingly modest.
