D16 Group

D16 has announced Devastor, the first effect plug-in from its new "Silver Collection".

Devastor is a simple Multiband Distortion Unit. It is an enhanced version of the distortion unit from Phoscyon.

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 analogue synthesizers (low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject) - with adjustable resonance and cutoff. As a result, Devastor has a completely unique sound.

Devastor can be used to distort and enhance a wide range of sounds - from full-on acid synth sounds to guitar fuzz or analogue 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.

Features:

  • Diode-clipper emulation.
  • Analogue-like filters.
  • Dynamics flattener.
  • Presets organised into groups.
  • MIDI learn function.
  • Pre/post processing mode for each filter.
  • 64-bit internal processing.
  • Low aliasing output.

Priced at €29, Devastor is expected to be released shortly in VST and AU formats for Windows and Mac OS X. It is currently available for pre-order.
