Description : Devastor is a simple but wonderful multi-band . It is an extended version of the PHOSCYON synthesizer’s distortion device. Being multi-band, it presents endless sound possibilities!
Devastor consists of three blocks: a dynamic gain module, a Diod-Clipper Distortion, and three filter sections. Each of the filters can process the signal before or after the Diod-Clipper. Filters do not sharpen the EQ-type, which is commonly used in classical multi-band distortion. They are similar to those on analog synthesizers: (low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject) – with adjustable resonance and a cutoff band. As a result, Devastor has a completely unique sound – just check the factory presets.
Devastor can be used both for distortion and for expanding the spectrum of sound – from the acidic Acid of a synthetic guitar-Fuzz to the sound of an analog amplifier with a combo speaker. It can even be used with drums to make their sound dirtier and more dynamic! Devastor is not only a good distortion. It can also be used to make the sound more subtle and delicate in character. Reducing preamp, increasing the threshold (Treshold) and choosing a smoother knee in the compressor will bring in more heat and detail the sound without the use of distortion.
When designing Devastor, we applied special anti-aliasing methods to smooth the output signal to make sure that the output signal does not have aliasing (aliasing is one of the reasons why digital blocks of sound distortion sound so cold and unmusical). As a result, Devastor has a warm, musical and very high quality sound.
