Distorque Face Bender

Distorque Face Bender – Fuzz Face & Tone Bender distortion unit

This is an emulation of a Fuzz Face and a Tone Bender MKII with added controls for tweaking. It runs in mono or stereo, and has selectable 2x oversampling.

The Fuzz Face was first made by Arbiter Electronics in 1966. It had a thick, fuzzy distortion and was made famous by artists like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and David Gilmour. The Tone Bender MKII was also released in 1966, by Sola Sound. Compared to the Fuzz Face, it has a brighter, more distorted sound.

Coded in C++, using VST SDK 2.4 and VSTGUI 4.0.

Face Bender is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows.
