Kilohearts has announced a limited time sale on selected audio effect plugins, offering a 50% discount on Phase Distortion, Comb Filter, Compressor, and Ladder Filter.

The plugins can be combined and modulated as Snapins in any of Kilohearts’ modular hosts or used as regular plugins (VST/AU/AAX) in your DAW.

Phase Distortion ($19.50 USD) — Better than Boring Old Regular Distortion.

Are you tired of only warping signal amplitude like a pleb? Phase Distortion is here to deliver phase melting mayhem!

Kilohearts Phase Distortion

Traditionally, most distortion units overdrive and shape the amplitude of a signal in various ways to generate a rougher sound. Phase Distortion instead lets the signal modulate the phase of itself, essentially resulting in something similar to feedback FM. This way you can add that FM touch to any sound, to get a sweet 80’s vibe or a filthy dubstep bass.

Will you use your newfound power for good or for evil?

Comb Filter $9.50 USD — Style Your Sound

The Comb Filter hollows out the sound by carving out frequencies at each multiple of the base frequency, like the teeth of a comb. It will then mix the signal with a delayed version of itself, creating a filter with repeated troughs and peaks across the spectrum.

It’s also possible to process left and right differently in a way that not only gives a wide stereo effect but also collapses right back to the original signal when mixed to mono. Nifty!

Compressor $14.50 USD — Essential Dynamic Control

A compressor will even out the audio volume by lowering the volume when the signal is loud. This helps shape the dynamics of the sound both at the initial attack and the sustain tail. Each compressor has its own flavor, and the kHs Compressor tastes sweet.

Maybe not the most exciting effect but definitely a very useful one!

Ladder Filter $14.50 USD — Reach New Heights

When you’re looking for a bit of that vintage feel, Ladder filter will twist your basses into squelching retro-licks akin to those of the Moog or the 303.

Crank the drive up an extra notch and it will even function as a warm distortion. Mmm… smooth. The Ladder Filter simulates low pass filters found in classic hardware synths.

All these plugins are discounted on the Kilohearts website until August 10th. Plugins already owned may contribute to further discounts on Kilohearts bundles.
