I like the Tone Shaper a lot. I think it´s great on bass guitar, you can dial in a huge but controlled low end. It´s also great on drums, snare drum in particular, you can bring out the "crack" nicely. It works well to make anything cut through the mix if needed without making it sound harsh.
I agree, its not the most natural sounding plugin, it´s rather radical, but therefor very musical.
