Just wanted to post up a follow up to the D16 group buy. I love the "shit depression" (runt brother of the great depression), cause there have been some great deals on software (and why shouldn't there be!).
The D16 group buy was like the best deal of the century. Redoptor and Devastor are great plugs, but Decimort is fncking priceless. Decimort's chief aim is to simulate old school reduced fidelity samplers, and it does a smashing job of it. Your average knob (no offense to knobs) thinks it is just a bit crusher, which are beyond free in vst land, but no, you would be wrong to think that. It is all about that old school crunchy, mushy and generally fncked up old school sampling sound. I'm finding I use it on almost all of my drums now. It is like an addiction. Like yeah that drum sounds good. Drop decimort on it, omg, that drum sounds like it just dripped off of Pete Rock's greasy fingers.
Also of note in their silver line is fazortran, which bills itself as a phaser, but you can create some serious choppage with it's square wav'ed lfo. In the words of my long lost kiwi homie, chea!!!!!!!!
Get read for a sh1t tun of posts regarding Maschine. I've finally started digging in. Find some serious holes and oversights in its fundamentals, but this thing is an embryo. We're talking some serious potential.
Guaranteed this concept will change the shape of digital audio workstations in the midterm future. That is a nwj guarantee (assuming the world can hang on to the Pax Americana sans the Americana).
Peach out Bartches.
