D16 unleashes distortion devastation

Devastor plug-in promises "endless mangling capabilities"


Polish developer D16 is best known for its emulations of classic grooveboxes, but with Devastor, it's taking a slightly different tack. This new product is a multiband distortion unit that expands on the one that comes included in the Phoscyon bassline synth.

The plug-in comprises three blocks: a dynamic gain module; diode-clipper distortion; and three filter sections. Each filter can go to work on the signal before or after the diode-clipper and comes with adjustable resonance and cutoff.

Devastor is said to have a wide range of applications. As well as offering brutal distortion, it can also be used subtly to warm up softer sounds.

The plug-in comes with a selection of presets, features a 64-bit internal processing engine and supports MIDI learn.

You can pre-order Devastor now for €29. It'll be released shortly for Mac and PC in the VST and AU plug-in formats.
