Blue Cat Audio has released version 1.01 of its Destructor distortion and amp sim modeling plugin for Windows and Mac.

Version 1.01 offers improvements to the demo version (removing some limitations) and fixes a few issues found in the initial release.

Blue Cat's Destructor

Blue Cat’s Destructor is a powerful distortion and amp sim modeling tool capable of simulating any kind of distortion: from harsh digital destruction to smooth compression or guitar amp simulation (works for clean tones too!), and most importantly, yours!

It is delivered with hundreds of presets and predefined models, either inspired by existing gear (guitar & bass amps or cabinets, compressors, pedals, tape machines…) or created by our destructive minds.

But the plug-in is not limited to these predefined models: all parameters of existing presets are fully editable, which gives you access to an unlimited number of distortion simulations – no need to purchase extra presets or amp models to build your custom tone.

Changes in Blue Cat’s Destructor v1.01

  • Changed demo limitations: up to 5 instances allowed, bypass time changed to half a second, and bypass parameter is not affected any more.
  • Fixed: no more comb filtering when using the mix knob with oversampling.
  • Fixed smooth bypass crossfade (used to produce clicks).
  • Plugin now requires Mac OS X 10.7 and newer.

Destructor for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/DX) is available for purchase for 79 EUR / $99 USD ex. VAT.
