Creative Intent has recently released a new digital audio effect plug-in designed to offer you a new take on distortion processing.

Tantrum comes with a wave shaping algorithm featuring five classic wave shapes, as well as Creative Intent’s unique phase modulation distortion also found in Temper.

Both algorithms can be controlled with a “Gravitational XY Pad”, providing a new dimension of creative distortion.

Tantrum features two distortion stages.

First, a wave shaping stage, featuring five classic curve shapes from soft tape saturation to aggressive foldback distortion. Next, a completely redesigned phase modulation distortion, taking the original input signal through a stereo delay to modulate the phase of the distorted signal, bringing new subtlety to “warmth” and new aggression to “overdrive.”

Finally, Tantrum offers a gorgeous interface with reactive and interactive visualizations to help you get to the sound you need.

Tantrum features

  • Two distinct distortion stages.
  • Five classic wave shaping curves.
  • Redesigned stereo phase modulation distortion.
  • Split band processing for careful tone control.
  • Reactive wave visualization.
  • Interactive Particle XY Pad.

Tantrum is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU), priced at $49.99 USD.
