Waves plugins have always been some of the most stable plugins I've experienced. They're cross platform compatible, so they'll work with both PCs and Macs. As a Mac user, that's a huge advantage for someone like me. They run in 32 bit mode, but Logic uses a wrapper-like application that runs so you don't interfere with your 64 bit interface. I've tried this on various different buses, and it seems to work on anything with ease. It even works nicely on MIDI, which I found a bit surprising. There are no performance issues at all, and that's a huge plus when working in a DAW filled with all kinds of synths and tracks running tons of plugins. These plugins came with my Mercury package, and I've had that for a few months now.
This has saved me quite a few times before. I mostly record guitar when I'm doing recording, and I'm pretty close to the monitor. As a result, I usually get some hum that occurs. I can either deal with it or turn around while recording. Either method works, but neither are ideal. This plugin helped remove some of that annoying hum that occurs while recording guitar near a monitor. If you deal with recording guitars, I highly recommend you check this out.
