I agree. Louigi seems to be as excited about it as I was when I found it.
A rack effects that 'just works' and looks nice.
Take it from a demanding axe player - it's good.
Distortion/overdrive defines our sound, and rakarrack shines here
 with many types of drive to suit everyone.

Just a request: Would be awesome as a DSSI plugin so that we 
 don't have to use rakarrack in a 'send and return' loop within our apps,
 which causes latency due to the round trip...
