Using the Overstayer MAS


I've heard you know something about the sound of the Overstayer MAS. I've read some interesting things about that box but have a few questions about what it actually does or sounds like. Is this more of a tape sim type of sound or is it mainly a distortion/saturation type thing? How well does it deliver on the promise of sounding something like "thru console to tape"? I've been trying various methods and devices (like everybody else is) to try and soften transients and digital harshness. I'm an old tape guy but gave up tape for good about 3 years ago. I'm not looking for something that sounds just like tape, just a device that simply and reliably warms up and softens any digital source run through it. Would the MAS be good for this?
