The Sherman correctly comes with a sonic danger warning. Some of the best times me and Sherman have had involve letting the filter self modulate or even setting a separate filter to self modulate, feeding that to the input, getting random and then seeing how broken it can sound. If you do embark on a voyage of discovery like this make sure you have something in record and you will harvest gems of utter sonic weirdness.

It's not that the Sherman sounds nice. Many hardcore and satisfied users will happily announce that they think it’s impossible to get a "nice" sound. It’s all about useful distortion. Reverb and other "FX" will only help out a weak sound so much, to really get in there you need to use what you have, and play with distortion. Then body, depth, crunch or searing mids can be added, and you can mix with confidence.

The "LINK IN" and "LINK OUT" sockets mean that several Filterbanks can be linked and set to related harmonic intervals for huge sounds or two could be linked to make one 48DdB monster.
