Plugin Boutique have reduced the price of the Audion Damage Creative Effect Bundle by over 30%, now only £92.95 / $36.43, (usually £241.72 / $294.01 if the plugins are purchased seperately). The offer ends August 1st.
Exclusive to Plugin Boutique, the Audio Damage Creative Effects Bundle brings together six of Audio Damage’s top-quality FX plugins. Featuring multi-effects, reverbs, delays, pitch shifting, filter effects and distortion units, the Creative Effects Bundle provides everything you need to enhance your productions and add a touch of uniqueness to your mix.
From mild tone-shaping or adding a bit of grit to full-on total waveform destruction, Kombinat Tri is a complete toolbox of sonic warfare and a complete top-to-bottom rebuild of the popular Kombinat series.
With 13 different options in each of the three distortion engines (plus pass-through), Kombinat Tri is capable of sophisticated and unique sounds. Want to add a ring mod to the low end, a mild tube clip to the mids, and a bit-reduction algorithm to the high end? No problem. Want to run your signal through three sine-warps or fuzz algorithms in series? This is your box.
Kombinat’s signal structure allows for a fairly broad palette of sounds, as each segment of the overall effect is a versatile tool in its own right. On the front end is a full “DJ-style” band-killer EQ; this leads to the three distortion engines, which may be used in multi-band mode for subtle surgery, or in series mode for complete signal destruction. The engines lead to a multi-mode filter with 12 different topologies, and then on to a compressor which Audio Damage have configured for one-control operation.
Taken as a whole, Kombinat is a tweaker’s paradise, yet designed so that it is easy to just grab one of the presets and touch it up a bit to suit the source material.
Discord4 is the latest version of Audio Damage’s most popular and long-lived product, their Discord stereo pitch shifter. Originally modelled from the H910, Discord has long since become its own effect and a studio standby, and this version includes major additions to further stretch its capabilities.
The pitch-shifter consists of three separate algorithms: a “vintage” mode (the original Discord algorithm, modelled on the Eventide H910 and H949), a “clean” mode for more modern shifting sounds, and a “granular” mode for experimental effects. Each mode has its strengths, depending on the input material, and Discord3 has a broad palette of capabilities as a result. The P1 and P2 algorithms have full control over the buffer (window) size of the shift effect, for fine-tuning the shift to the input signal, or for stranger sound effects. At the extremes of the six-octave shift range, some truly strange aliasing and artifacts can be had with this control.
Discord4 retains its pair of tempo-synced delays and bandpass filters from previous versions and adds a reverb in the feedback loop (for easy access to “shimmer” effects). Audio Damage have also replaced the modulation sources from the original with the all-new FLFO (Flexible LFO) design. Panorama controls are included to control the stereo width of the wet signal. Finally, soft saturation and limiting have been added or improved throughout the signal path, for an overall improved sound and added vintage-style warmth, and to allow for extreme feedback experiments without fear of overloading your DAW’s channel.
Eos 2.0 was a massive update to the Eos algorithmic reverb. For version 2.1, Audio Damage rebuilt Eos from bare metal, increasing stability and compatibility across all platforms. The all-new user interface is fresher looking as well as more amenable to touch control. This, combined with its new preset management makes Eos 2.1 a breeze to use.
One of the original buffer effects, and still one of the best. Version 2 adds the Stutter effect, for further divisions of the loop. It’s like glitch-ception! From a simple delay or panning effect, on up to massive random beat mangling, Replicant is a capable plugin well in line with today’s electronic music styles. Stuttering buffers and filter drops are easy to program, and the comprehensive randomization features give it a mind of its own if so desired. If you’re looking to add some chance to your production, you’ve come to the right place!
Filterstation2 is the Audio Damage take on the classic serial/parallel/stereo dual filter topology, made famous (and some would say “indispensable”) by the Sherman Filterbank and its many clones. With twelve filter algorithms, an envelope follower with stereo sidechain input, a full FSU section for extra signal hacking, and an easy-to-use interface, Filterstation2 is a valuable addition to any producer’s toolkit.
Filterstation2 takes the original Filterstation plugin, and adds an all-new HiDpi/Retina-capable vector-based UI with resizability, a completely rewritten parameter and DSP section, a full selection of extreme modification tools, ProTools support, an cross-platform XML preset mechanism.
A true powerhouse of audio warfare, Grind puts the “damage” in Audio Damage. From subtle tube-style saturation to full-on mangled wavetable distortion, Grind is a Swiss Army Knife of sound design.
Grind consists of three main blocks: wavetable lookup, into algorithmic saturation/distortion/, and finally to a multi-mode filter. The wavetable module uses the amplitude of the incoming signal to replace the sample with one from 15 different linearly-interpolated wavetables, chosen for their mangling potential. Window size and phase controls provide further tone-shaping possibilities.
The next stop is the algorithm module, with eleven different distortion and saturation algorithms, from simple soft-knee saturation on up to full-on sine warping.
After this, the signal passes through a multi-mode filter stage, with eleven different filter models to choose from, including “vintage digital” versions from the early days of plugin development, on up to the modern analogue-modelled MS20-style lowpass and highpass synth filters. A tempo-synced LFO provides motion for the filter frequency, and a final stage of soft clipping and DC filtering tames the output.
Make no mistake: this is not a subtle, polite tool. With careful tuning of the provided presets, it can be tamed to normal filtering and saturation duties, but on the whole, it is a noisy, snorting beast of a plug-in, and is happiest with Full Metal audio destruction.
This bundle is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
