Mason Software releases Dammit Distortion
Mason Software has released Dammit Distortion, a guitar distortion VST-plugin for Windows PC.
It is only intended for heavy metal sounds and specifically tries to recreate the quite legendary guitar sound on Metallicas black album.
Dammit Distortion features
- No external hardware/preamp required. Just plug guitar in and rock!
- Simple user interface, 3 sliders only. In most cases the defualt setting sounds great.
- No need for additional equalizing/processing. Dammit does it all!
Dammit is a very complex product, being the result of many years of development. It filters the input sound in over 30 stages and thus is quite CPU-intensive. Minimum hardware requiered is 1GHz AMD Athlon XP or similar.
Dammit Distortion is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC and costs $30 USD. A demo version is available for download (beeps every 10 seconds).
