I've been using the Mercury bundle for half a year or so now, and it's been awesome. I've never experienced a single crash or issue with any of these plugins, including this one. No matter how many plugins I tend to load, my machine still keeps chugging along. The plugin itself is cross platform compatible, so nearly anybody can use this on his or her favorite machine. Personally, I'm a Mac user, so I'm using OS X on a Mac Pro with Logic Pro. There is one issue that I've been having, however. For the OS X users out there, this plugin is a 32 bit plugin. That means that your DAW will need to utilize a special bridge application for this to work inside your 64 bit DAW. It's not a huge deal, but it can be a bit of a pain, depending on how your particular DAW handles the 32 bit conversion.
Most of the time, if I'm going to do a harmony, I just play the thing myself twice. One track will be the root, and the other will be something like the harmonized 3rd. I'm able to replicate something similar with this, but I actually prefer using this for a really cool detune effect on leads. It can create a really cool alternative to chorusing, and you get a very 80s feel without getting totally washed out. Detune is actually my go-to effect for leads at the moment, so I tend to use this plugin quite a bit.
