8-Bit Shaper takes your audio single and reduces it to 8-bits for a waveshaper stage. Optional pre and post filtering allow for further coloration of the signal. Wet/Dry control and free-drawing on the graph allow you to control the amount of mangling.

Try it on drumloops, leads, basses and more.

If I understand well it's not exactly a distortion... but a bit-crusher. Why not call the things correctly?

Try it out, you'll see why is that.
It's bitcrush+gain+filter+soft clipper+waveshaper. Distortion is just a common word for a field of usecases.

I'm gonna try (and use it, I already like Cthulhu, Xfer is a very good company).

It was just a remark on the use of words.

I, too, like to music.
