Plugin Boutique has launched an exclusive sale on Grind, offering over 60% off on the powerhouse distortion effect plugin for a limited time.

Grind does everything from subtle tube-style saturation to full-on mangled wavetable distortion.

Grind consists of three main blocks: wavetable lookup, into algorithmic saturation/distortion/, and finally to a multi-mode filter. The wavetable module uses the amplitude of the incoming signal to replace the sample with one from 15 different linearly-interpolated wavetables, chosen for their mangling potential. Window size and phase controls provide further tone-shaping possibilities.

The next stop is the algorithm module, with eleven different distortion and saturation algorithms, from simple soft-knee saturation on up to full-on sine warping.

After this, the signal passes through a multi-mode filter stage, with eleven different filter models to choose from, including “vintage digital” versions from the early days of plugin development, on up to our modern analogue-modelled MS20-style lowpass and highpass synth filters. A tempo-synced LFO provides motion for the filter frequency, and a final stage of soft clipping and DC filtering tames the output.

Grind is on sale for only $19 USD until November 1st, 2022 (regular $49 USD). It comes in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats.
