What is SimpleTON II? Its an incredible dual filter distortion plugin can really scream – seriously this bad boy makes normal distortion plugins look like teddy bears!

It allows you to create an obscenely hot signal that’s big, heavy and totally distorted (it also does mellow and pulled back too). With built in hints, high/low pass filters, frequency/resonance controls, pre-mix limiter, rectifier and much more, its got everything you need to have a lot of fun. If you want to make an instrument or track roar, buzz, growl or squeal, SimpleTON II is for you! (NB. Windows, 32bit plugin)
