SingleMault CM - Free VST/AU distortion and filter effect

Apply versatile drive, fuzz, warmth and grit to your sounds with SingleMault CM. Based upon its gigantic bigger brother Maul, it's a tasty harmonic distortion and filter plugin built for Computer Music by the mighty FXpansion.The software gurus are also highly-regarded for their awesome BFD3 drum software and analogue-modelled DCAM Synth Squad collection.

SingleMault CM can coat some sweet saturation over your sounds, or provide some mind-blowing distortion tones at extreme settings (plus everything inbetween). A multimode resonant filter then allows you to control and shape the harmonics you've added. Make no mistake, this versatile device is perfect for a huge range of distortion and filtering tasks - tonal shaping, group gelling, creative mangling and more besides!
