Sinevibes’ new Corrosion distortion plugin looks clean but sounds filthy

Sinevibes’ latest venture is a multi-algorithm distortion processor known as Corrosion. Offering seven distortion curves, this also includes a pre-distortion filter for tone shaping, and a crossover filter that enables you to distort just the low frequency band.

As in all Sinevibes plugins, the interface is colour-coded, and there are animated elements, too. Check out the specs below, and download a demo on the Sinevibes website. Corrosion costs $29 and is available as a Mac AU plugin.

Sinevibes Corrosion specs 

  • 7 distortion algorithms: exponential, soft clip, hard clip, triangle clip, triangle foldback, single foldback, multi foldback.
  • 4x oversampling with polyphase sinc filter for aliasing suppression.
  • Two-band -24 dB/octave Linkwitz-Riley crossover filter.
  • Pre-distortion -12 dB/octave Butterworth low-pass or high-pass filter.
  • Soft bypass switch with 20 ms crossfade between states.
  • Colour-coded control elements with animated transitions between settings.
  • Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for Retina screen resolution.
