Plugin Boutique has published a Show & Reveal video on Blue Cat’s Destructor distortion plugin.
Producer Joshua Casper demonstrates the powerful distortion and amp sim modelling tool that is capable of simulating any kind of distortion, from harsh digital destruction to smooth compression or guitar amp simulation.
It is delivered with hundreds of presets and predefined models, either inspired by existing gear (guitar & bass amps or cabinets, compressors, pedals, tape machine), 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.
Based on a perceptual model rather than on electronic designs or impulse responses, the signal chain is reduced to its bare minimum, simplifying the process of tweaking the tone and making it fit into the mix.
Typical applications – Distortion modelling, guitar amp simulation, non-linear tone shaping channel strip, overdrive, bit crushing, analog compression, hard & soft clipping, colouring, tape saturation, Lo-fi, fuzz, digital noise, aliasing, filter effect
Destructor is available for purchase from Plugin Boutique.
