Agree completely. Great way to say it -- this "lack of clumsiness" is probably what appeals most to me. The design for some reason lends itself a bit more to reaching into the sound to get it closer to what you want without messing up other parts, better than similar plugins. I think it helps that the developer has given such great visual feedback and useful thoughtful options, that when combined with the sound quality and consistency, it turns into a well-balanced TOOL for day-in, day-out use. I'm honestly using this more than even FabFilter Pro-Q3 now. I'm very surprised by that.
