Deconstructor takes your input signal, splits it into 8 equal pieces and lets you then determine how these pieces should be arranged and processed. While the algorithm itself is pretty simple, a broad variety of "classic" effects can be reproduced in a very simple way, for example Pitchshifting, Autopanner, Tremolo, Delay, Simple Reverb, Simple Vocoder, and so on. But don't forget that its true power lies in the combination of different processing methods to produce new, strange and sometimes very exciting effects: mangle your drumloops into something completely different, transform voices into a cacophony, let your rhythms shake.

Deconstructor Basic is Freeware.

Deconstructor Pro offers the following additional features and advantages:

  • 2 additional filters (Screamer and BitCrusher).
  • 2 additional effects (Robotize and Chorus).
  • Full MIDI control: control ANY slider with ANY MIDI CC.
  • MIDI learn mode: unknown incoming CCs can be mapped to sliders.
  • Trigger slots with MIDI note on/off commands.
  • An additional VSTi version: an instrument with support for loading WAV files, ideal for loops.
  • More preset banks.
  • Optimized performance in both versions.
  • Enhanced user support, every problem will be tried to solve as quickly as possible.
  • Special preview/beta/freeware/offers available for registered users.

Time for a small review in honor of Tobybears Creation, Deconstructor, which doesn´t seem to get much attention here. Deconstructor - i´m speaking of the free version here - is a great rhythmic mangling tool which allows slicing up incoming audio into 8 slices and processing them individually in volume, pan, filtering and effekts, and so allows effects from subtle to utter crazy.
The Gui is nice looking and well laid out, the sound is really good but more on the hard side, the features even in the free version are enough, documenation isn´t much but enough, presets aren´t necessary, it is quite if not absolutely stable, VFM is of course great for the free version - the commercial one is a different matter.
I´m tempted to buy it but 50 Dollars is to much nowadays with getting a complete sampling instrument like Cronox with more options and hundreds of presets for about the same price, hopefully Tobybear will lower the price or upgrade it with a more complete VSTi version with Multisampling / Soundfont import which would be great.Read more
