Just like its name clearly suggests, Psycho Toolkit is a complete package of plug-ins, aimed for sound design and editing rather than mainstream audio production.
Psycho Toolkit contains no less than 7 different tools, each with various features and options: Barnum Preamp, Excitable Boy, Flip Speed, Metal Demon, Sick Puppy, Thrash Triode and Water Glass.
In order to understand the Psycho Toolkit utility, we need to analyze each plug-in individually.
