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.

Excellent tool to overdrive a sound, add a hiss, squash something to hell or emulate a tape recording (getting rid of peaks and pretending that your regular Massive is something from 70s that you've cratedigged, not programmed just 5 minutes ago). Take your time tweaking it and build your tiny presets library as I did. See what you can get from your most basic tones or complex ones. Also, don't forget your filtering — as always, it works wonders on distortion. It looks like something very geeky and undergroundy, like a secret killer tool you would dig from the web, and it excites me:

  • sounds dirty, stereo, smooth — sounds great;
  • have pre/post gain, pre/post filters and other clever controls that you'd like to see in a distortion unit;
  • totally free.

This can make a way into any sound design project and yield some solid and unique results quickly.

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.
