Here is a short review of the plug-in by Pro Tools Expert, from a guitarist prospective: “It’s so easy to use”, “the possibilities are endless”, “I forget that it is a plug-in, it’s that good!”… Check it out!
Despite its name, Blue Cat’s Destructor can do far more than distortion: compression, tube saturation, tape saturation, bit crushing… But also clean guitar or bass amps simulation! Here are a few clean and crunch examples on a simple funky riff:
We are happy to unveil today our new plug-in, Blue Cat’s Destructor, a comprehensive distortion and amp sim modeling tool capable of simulating any kind of distortion.
It will be demoed on booth #410 at the 141st AES Convention in Los Angeles until October 2nd and will be available for purchase onOctober 11th.
This new plug-in gives access to an unlimited number of non-linear processing models, ranging from harsh digital destruction to smooth analog compression or guitar amp simulation (and it works for clean tones too).
It is delivered with hundreds of presets and predefined models, many of them inspired by real gear. It offers the ability to create completely custom distortion simulations beyond these models, thanks to its flexible yet simple signal processing chain – no need to purchase extra presets or amp models to build the perfect custom tone.
Based on a perceptual model rather than on electronic designs or impulse responses, it simplifies the process of tweaking the tone and making it fit into the mix. Thanks to its exclusive adaptive shaper, it is reactive to the playing of instrumentists, providing a very natural feeling, similar to analog gear.
In order to make the look and feel of the plug-in match the tone, the plug-in is bundled with more than 1400 visual styles that can be selected separately for each module.
