Well, I use both and love each of them for their unique, quite
different, characters. I too hear that Ronin delivers a rather crappy
fidelity but that works well in my looping concept to layer and slice
up with more hi fi type sounds. But the functionality I particularly
like with Ronin is its Ducking Mode. However, Audio Damage now has the
Dr Device that also offers Ducking Mode so that functionality is not
lost for a mac plug-in. Maybe I could use Dr Device instead for the
same routings that Ronin made successful! Routings like "auto looper"
and "freeze reverb/delay" can of course be set up in hosts like Bidule
and Max (by utilizing an envelope follow object monitoring the live
audio input and  set to accordingly control specific plug-in
parameters) but I appreciate plug-ins that already contain the
necessary routing for the reason of being able to easily migrate my
performance context between different host applications. Multi
functional plug-ins come in very handy then.
