Its' free, and for free it's amazing. The plugins are great actually. The instruments and the efx are really nice. The prochannel has very nice LA2A and 1176 emulations, console emulation, linear phase EQ and multi-band compression, etc.

Just be warned that it does have some bugs and it does crash, especially once you get into advanced production techniques like extensive aux busses, multiple parallel compression channels, side-chaining, etc.

If you keep your projects in the 16-24 track range, regularly print efx out to stems, and keep you aux and send busses to minimum, it works well.

Full disclosure: I've been a Studio One user since Gibson stopped development of Cakewalk (Sonar), but I keep my eye on what Bandlab is doing.
Disappointment with any module is usually a failure of imagination.

The story you are about to hear is true.
