Temper is a modern digital distortion plugin which combines a rich saturation curve and a unique phase distortion, with a resonant lowpass filter at the beginning of the signal chain and a feedback loop through the distortion stage.
Temper's phase distortion offers unique harmonic excitement in the higher frequency components of your sound, bringing character and clarity to any element of your mix. And with a classic overdrive and versatile resonant lowpass pre-filter, Temper delivers a modern tone that brings an all new edge to your sound.
This is our first plugin, and the source code is available under GPLv3.

Temper is a fantastic phase distortion plugin from Creative Intent. At first glance, it may seem pretty limited due to having only a small amount of controls, but with the filter section and the saturation and curve knobs, one can get a lot of great sounds out of this thing. Whether beefing up a bassline or adding some spice to a drum track, Temper is a good tool for the job. I especially love what it can do for basses and hi-hats. The filter itself is excellent, with the ability to get some nice squelchy distortions; just watch your speakers.
The GUI may be too dark for some, but personally I love it. I mainly use FL Studio so I'm used to and prefer dark color schemes. The fiery display is a nice touch, and the controls themselves are solid and fluid.
As far as customer service, Nick is personable and active here on KVR. I sent him a private message and he replied later that day.
Temper is available in VST, VST3, and AU, and at $10 is an absolute steal. Temper gets a solid 9/10 from me.Read more
