Blue Cat’s Destructor Review: “Excellent”

The Garageband guide has published a review of Blue Cat’s Destructor, together with an overview video (see below). The plug-in was rated “Excellent”:

“having spent several hours finding my way around Destructor and putting it through it’s paces i’m happy to report that it really is as flexible and fully featured as Blue Cat describe. […]

Destructor’s interface is well laid out and a breeze to use; Blue Cat have went to great lengths here to make sure getting some fantastic sounds as easy as possible.[…]

Viable as a great sounding Amp sim as well as a downright filthy saturation and distortion plug in, Blue Cat Audio’s destructor offers fantastic value for money.”
