Devastor is a simple, but remarkable, multi-band distortion effect. It is an extended version of the distortion device of our PHOSCYON synthesizer. Being multi-band, it presents endless sonic possibilities!
Devastor consists of three blocks: a dynamic gain module, a Diod-Clipper Distortion and three filter sections. Each of the filters can handle the signal before or after the Diod-Clipper. Filters do not exacerbate the EQ-type, which is commonly used in classic multiband distortions. They are similar to those that stand on analog synthesizers: (low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject) – with adjustable resonance and cutoff band. As a result, Devastor has a completely unique sound – it’s enough just to check the factory presets.
Devastor can be used for both distortion and expansion of the sound spectrum – from the acid Acid synthetic guitar-Fuzz to the sound of an analog amplifier with a combo speaker. It can be used even with drums in order to make their sound more “dirty” and dynamic! Devastor is not only a good distortion. It can also be used to give the sound a more subtle timbre and a gentle character. Reducing the pre-amplification, increasing the trigger threshold and selecting a smoother knee in the compressor will bring more heat and detail the sound without using distortion.
