"Each of these processing modules offers a pretty well-judged selection of controls, enabling them to be versatile yet not over-complicated.
The most distinctive feature of Punish, both visually and operationally, is that circular gateway to eternal damnation, aka the eponymous Punish control. This does nothing on its own, but can be linked to as many of the other knobs as you like, allowing them to be adjusted simultaneously.
In truth, the concept behind Punish is not exactly ground-breaking. The world is not short of distortion plug-ins, and although there probably aren't any others that offer the exact same balance of features, the chances are that most SOS readers wanting brutal, unnatural and scary are already rich supplied with options. That being the case, Punish is going to need to do what it does pretty well in order to elbow it's way into our crowded plug-in folders - and i'm pleased to report that it meets this challenge."
