Music Radar review : D16 Devastor

Music Radar review : D16 Devastor


More than just a simple fuzzbox, Devastor can toughen up your tones in ways that other plug-ins can't.

We're telling it like it is when we say that Devastor sounds devilishly divine, if that isn't a contradiction in terms. It sounds (and looks) awesome just sitting there, but it really shines when you add a bit of MIDI control to the proceedings - MIDI learn is onboard, of course.

Not only that, but there's also a healthy selection of presets included, covering most common uses, from trashing drums to sweetening electric pianos. Needless to say, we tried them all on a wide variety of sources, and they never let us down. The distortion can scream, but doesn't exhibit some of the unpleasantly harsh qualities we've heard with many other clippers.

Pros

Excellent sound. Good, well categorised presets. Three-way filtering. Flexible signal path. Great value for money.

Cons

No per-filter clipping!

Verdict

Devastor is a killer distortion plug-in, and much more exciting to use than it might seem on paper. At this price, what's stopping you?

Rating 4.5/5
