D16 group releases Devastor v1.0
D16 group has released Devastor, an enhanced version of the multiband distortion unit from Phoscyon.
Devastor consists of three blocks: dynamic-gain module, diode-clipper distortion and three filter sections.
Each of the filters can process the signal before or after the diode-clipper. The filters are not the peaking EQ type which are used in classic multiband distortion They are like those found in analogue synthesizers (low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject)- with adjustable resonance and cutoff. As a result, Devastor has a completely unique sound – just check out the Factory Presets.
- probably the best diode-clipper emulation
- analogue-like filters
- dynamics flattener
- presets organised into groups
- midi learn function
- pre/post processing mode for each filter
- 64bit internal processing
- low aliasing output
Devastor is available for Windows PC and Mac (VST/AU) for 29 EUR.
