Minimal Audio has announced the release of a new distortion effect that brings groundbreaking effects, extensive modulation, and an all-around musical mindset.

Rift is a novel take on bi-polar distortion processing combined with physical modeling feedback and morphing filters. It includes over 400 presets.

At RIFT’s core is a unique distortion engine with 30 custom algorithms spanning both classic and never before heard processors. These effects are blended in the novel waveform engine, giving you precise control over how the two algorithms are combined and clear visual feedback over what is happening.

Drive the distortion, and change the number of processing stages to create super-rich harmonics. Expand your sounds even further with a flexible feedback processor, custom morphing filters, and powerful modulation.

Available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3 and AU plugin formats, Rift is on sale at Minimal Audio and from distributor Plugin Boutique for the intro price of $75 USD for a limited time (regular $129 USD).
