Blamsoft releases t00b Distortion for Reason

Blamsoft has released t00b Distortion, a new Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Blamsoft t00b Distortion

t00b Distortion contains industrial strength circuit simulation technology used to simulate a popular triode preamp stage. When overdriven, this circuit gives a classic warm tube distortion sound. This isn’t your common black box approximation algorithm, this is real voltages and currents in a circuit simulation with the most accurate tube model available.

Hear the subtle difference of swapping out the tube model. Four models are included. Adjust the tone with a circuit modeled tone stack from the Marshall JCM800 series. Distortion generates high frequencies so a bass boost is available for quick eq compensation. On the back, you have CV inputs available for the knobs and a Quality switch to control the CPU usage. Everything you need to get the tube sound in your mix.

The t00b Distortion is available from the Propellerhead Shop for 32 EUR.

Boscomac releases Bit Torsion free distortion effect for Reaktor

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Feb 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Boscomac has announced Bit Torsion, a free distortion effect for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Boscomac Bit Torsion
Boscomac’s Bit Torsion for Reaktor offers “animated distortion”.

As its name suggests, it’s not an emulation of bagpipes but rather an effect of mass destruction of signal. Particularly effective on Drums, I define it as a “Animated distortion.”

“Distortion” because it is here to reduce the bit, the sample rate, add gain, feedback, filtering frequency, clipping, folding, etc. “Animated” because this module has a random sequencer particular: the user chooses the settings, the direction and intensity of modulation that follows data generated randomly. Hmm, what a program!

Bit Torsion is available as a free download (requires full version of Reaktor 5.9). Donations are appreciated.
