A few weeks ago we covered Audio Damage’s ‘comeback’ to the plugin realm with their release of Eos 2.
The company also announced full version upgrades of all their current products plus some new releases and they are certainly keeping their promises.
Last week they released Grind, in their words “a true powerhouse of audio warfare”. Audio Damage already had some ‘nasty’ plugins like Kombinat Diva, but this Grind looks like a more powerful beast, that can go from “subtle tube-style saturation to full-on mangled wavetable distortion”.
Hear it in action here with some drum and bass loops:
Grind offers three main sections: wavetable lookup, algorithmic saturation/distortion/, and multi-mode filter. It’s quite versatile, but it’s a hell of a dirty machine. Not for the faint of heart!
Yesterday Audio Damage released Dubstation 2, an uupgraded version of their classic BBD delay model.
Dubstation 2 adds a saturation control, single and dual modes with fancy animated knobblyness, ping-pong mode, a new UI with hi-res scaling, and AAX/VST3 formats.
With the addition of the LFO and saturation controls, Dubstation has moved in to the realm of tape delay emulation as well, becoming much more versatile than the original plugin.
In this quick video demo you can see and hear both plugins in use on a simple piano loop.
Price and Availability
US$49 each, with an upgrade price of US$10 for existing Dubstation owners. To read more and purchase the plugins, visit AD’s website.
