Blue Cat's Destructor Distortion and Amp Sim Plug-In Now Available

Blue Cat Audio have released Blue Cat's Destructor, their comprehensive distortion and amp sim modeling plug-in announced last month at the AES.

Offering a very wide range of tones and capabilities, this plug-in is more a "tone shaping channel strip" than just another guitar amp simulator. Delivered with hundreds of presets and predefined models for guitar, bass, drums, mixing or even mastering, the plug-in can emulate all sorts of non-linear processors, with effects ranging from tube compression or tape saturation to digital aliasing, and of course clean or overdriven guitar amp simulations.

"I really wanted something that would not only sound great, but also provide a realistic feeling while playing." says Guillaume Jeulin, founder and CEO of Blue Cat Audio. "It was also necessary to get back to the bare minimal signal chain, so that it is very easy to get the desired tone right away for playing, and you can quickly modify it afterwards when mixing. The purpose of this plug-in is really to let you create your own tones, not just copy existing gear - and not be limited to guitar tones either. That's the reason for using a perceptual model rather than electronics simulations or impulse responses. It took 5 years to build, but I think it goes far beyond traditional simulations." [more about the inception of the plug-in can be read here].

The plug-in is available for purchase today with 20% off until 11/11, and demo versions of the plug-in can be found on bluecataudio.com, as well as audio and video samples. Existing customers are granted an extra 10% discount during the introduction period.

Main Features:

  • Powerful distortion and amp modeling tool.
  • Simulate any kind of distortion: analog or digital, guitar and bass amps, saturation, clipping, compression, bit crushing...
  • Works for "clean" sounds too.

  • Load reference curves for tone matching.
  • No latency.

System requirements:

  • Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.5 or newer.
