ADSR are offering Heat, a saturation and distortion plugin by 22Bullets and W.A Production for only $16.00, (usually $39.50). The offer ends September 12th.
With millions of Spotify plays under his belt, Thai-born producer 22Bullets is a dance music legend in the making. His high profile list of collaborators includes Fedde Le Grand, Timmy Trumpet, Kura and Vinai. We are proud to collaborate with him on a plugin that really shoots from the hip.
Presenting HEAT. With a unique look, this bone-crunching plugin brings out the big guns. Load the revolver barrel with two of your favourite distortion and saturation models, and blend them together with a spin of the chamber. We support gun control (in this case anyway), so HEAT is far more than a mindless fuzz box. You can shape the two signals with high and low pass filters, resulting in a more musical output than many other types of distortion plugins. Feel the HEAT of sweet saturation and intense amped-up overdrive as you tweak the parameters to your personal taste.
Of course, we’ve also included loads of factory presets to kickstart your distortion discoveries, from extreme settings for smashing your audio, to more tempered values for vocals, bass and drums. Use these presets as jumping-off points and then adjust the drive, blend, filters and other parameters to create a sound that’ll blow the competition away.
As an additional treat, with every purchase of HEAT you’ll also get a 2GB pack of samples, stems, MIDI and synth presets. Everything you need to recreate the signature sound from 22Bullets, from slamming bass lines to mutated FX, fat synths to pounding drums. Drop these files into your DAW to discover exactly how this top-tier producer constructs his own tracks.
The whole concept of HEAT is to apply twin distortion and then shape the signals so that your audio is powerful, yet retains musicality. The starting point for this are the 10 different types of modelled distortion. These 10 models can be loaded into the two chambers, each with adjustable drive levels. With a wide range of different distortion types, from Browning to Bazooka, you can easily craft everything from subtle saturation and harmonics to blow-the-doors-off distortion. Each of these 10 types of processing will produce a different character and timbre, so experiment by blending between them with a flick of the bullet chamber.
These two filter controls allow you to shape your distortion far more musically than stock plugins. Separately adjust the High and Low frequency cut off parameters for the two different distortion chambers. For example, you might only want to crush the mid-range of a synth part, giving it more crunch and power. Or maybe just distort the lowest frequencies of a fat kick drum. Combine two different types of distortion with two different filter shapes and get your audio production-ready with the precision of surgical saturation.
Use the Input and Output sliders to compensate for any gain boost or reduction caused by the distortion chambers with up to +/- 48dB attenuation. This allows for very accurate comparisons when A/Bing. Use the Mix ratio control at the centre of the interface to dial in as much (or as little) of the distortion types as you need. Apply a conservative ratio for subtle saturation and sweetening or push the control further to hear the 100% destroyed signal.
The live visual meters around the perimeter of the interface show exactly what’s happening to the signal as it’s being processed in real time. This allows for accurate monitoring each time you decide to make a change to the distortion type or level. The output of the right-hand chambers is shown as a bouncing orange waveform, the output of the left-hand chamber shown in yellow. This makes it easy to tell the difference between the two types of distortion that you’re applying to the signal and exactly which parts of the signal the filters are targeting.
With many included presets, it’s easy to lock-and-load starting points to create your own distortion drama. Tailored to specific instruments, genres and effects, these factory options can be used on many types of audio. The presets include everything from delicate distortion to all out smashed saturation.
