Italian hardware producer and software developper SKnote has released Disto, a plugin which happens to be a... compressor.

An emulation of two different devices in one, Disto was designed by merging their features into a single processing system while adding mid/side mode to the original “stereo” and “dual mono” features. While this compressor was designed to saturate quite easily in “standard” mode (hence its name), clean compression can also be achieved. If it is still not versatile enough, an over-distorted “out of order” mode is also present for stronger effects. And since transformers are said to do a lot for analog gears’ sounds, they were specifically modelled for an additional low-freq saturation (which can also be set off). Oh, and of course, any resemblance in GUI or sound to two comparable actual harware processors would (distressingly) be purely coincidental… or, perhaps, not so much?

 

Features include:

– Different compression modes.

– Knee compression.

– Different saturation modes.

– Warmth control (a special dynamic filter attenuates brightness for a “tape” style warming effect).

– “Hottitude” control (set headroom and saturation independently from dynamic control).

– Output transformer option (a special saturation on low frequency range).

– Mid/Side matrix, with independent controls for Mid and Side.

– Original/Out of Order modes.

– VST and AU versions (32 and 64bit) available for Windows and Mac, with AAX to follow at an date still to be determined.

 

Introductory price is $29.99 (instead of $39.99), available from SKnote’s web shop.
