Audio Level Destroyer

Two knobs, one big drum sound. Audio level destroyer with vintage vibe.

Simple, devious and often unpredictable, Devil-Loc is a little plug-in that makes drums sound big. Drop it on a drum kit or loop and listen to Devil-Loc inflate the room ambience, pumping excitement into an otherwise drab rhythm track. Push it to its limits to create extreme gating effects where loud hits crush the signal to silence and the output blooms into a fuzzy mess.

Now back off the controls. You’ll find some amazing sweet spots where Devil-Loc shows its angelic side, adding a vintage halo to loops and drums. You can even try it on your mix bus—if you dare!

Some of the best music production techniques are based on twisting and abusing old technology, and Devil-Loc comes straight out of that tradition. Its inspiration comes from an old podium mic compressor called the Level-Loc.

Originally intended as a way to keep a presenter’s voice at a perfectly even level, clever recording engineers eventually liberated these relics from church lecterns and bingo halls and began using them for more nefarious purposes. Because they featured an automatic release time that changed depending on the input level, as well as some particularly gnarly distortion characteristics, these boxes were capable of doing amazing and sometimes absolutely weird things to drums. Devil-Loc captures the rawness of these old devices and packages it into an easy-to-use plug-in.

Devil-Loc Deluxe

Want even more control? Step up to Devil-Loc Deluxe. It adds Mix and Darkness controls and selectable release time to help you rein in Devil-Loc’s beastly tendencies.
