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 consists of three blocks: dynamic-gain module, diode-clipper
distortion and three filter sections. Each of the filters can process the
signal before or after the diode-clipper. The filters are not the peaking
EQ type which are used in classic multiband distortion They are like those
found in analog synthesizers (low pass, high pass, band pass and band
reject) - with adjustable resonance and cutoff. As a result, Devastor has
a completely unique sound - just check out the Factory Presets.
Versatile and advanced
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
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!
