First of all, this plugin is super rock solid. I've never experienced a single hiccup or crash while using this. Considering that Waves is one of the best companies in this aspect, it's really no surprise. The plugin itself is cross platform compatible, so both Windows and OS X users alike can use this without any issues. The plugin itself also doesn't take up too much RAM, and in a world where processing power/RAM mean everything, that's a huge plus. There is one issue that I have with this, however. The plugin itself is a 32 bit plugin, but my DAW is a 64 bit DAW. That means that my DAW has to launch a special bridge application to allow me to use these plugins without having to lower my RAM limit. It's a minor inconvenience, but I'd still like to see Waves update these plugins in the future. I've been using the Mercury bundle for the past half a year or so, and it's bee a great experience.
I've used this very successfully on drums, and it helped make everything sound more dynamic overall by giving me some more control over the different drum transients. I tend to find myself using this more on rock and 80s style metal than the death metal that I normally play simply due to how the dynamics present themselves in the genres of music. Regardless as to what genre you play, there's almost always a usage for this at some point in time, in my opinion.
