D16 proudly presents our first Fx Plugin from our “SilverLine Collection” – Devastor. Devastor is a simple but remarkable Multiband Distortion Unit. It is an enhanced version of the distortion unit from our synth Phoscyon. Being multiband, the sonic mangling capabilities are endless!
Devastor can used to distort and enhance a wide range of sounds – From full-on acid synth sounds to guitar fuzz or analog amp with combo speaker. It can even be used with drums to make them sound more dirty and dynamic! Devastor isn’t just good at creating distorted monster sounds. It can also be used subtlety to improve the timbre and character of more gentle sounds. Reducing the preamp gain, increasing the threshold and selecting a soft-knee for the dynamics will bring out more warmth and detail in a sound without introducing distortion.
When designing Devastor, we applied special antialiasing techniques to the output signal to make sure the signal had no aliasing (aliasing is one of the reasons why digital distortion units sound so cold and un-musical). As a result, Devastor has a warm, musical and very high quality sound.
To hear Devastor, we would like to invite You to listen our audio examples. You’ll find many types – from distorted acid lines, through drum’n’bass loops, to electric pianos and organs. Devastor is so good that you may think that the sound has been sent from the computer to an external analog distortion unit and back into the computer again!
