    Installation and Authorization without worry.
    According to its title, Devastor is a multiband distortion unit.
    First, there is a knob titled "Dynamics" that compresses the sound. When placed on "hard" a very strong attack can be seen, the duration of which it is a pity not to intervene.
    We then go to the "Clipper" strictly speaking "Preamp" boosts the sound input 0 to + 48dBs. "Threshold" is the level at which saturation occurs. Two small LEDs indicate the action of the distortion. "Knee" determines the "brutality" of the effect.
    Indeed multiband is then located three filter units. For each, you can choose the filter (low pass, band pass, high pass and band reject), a setting of......

    Indeed multiband is then located three filter units. For each, you can choose the filter (low pass, band pass, high pass and band reject), a setting of cutoff, resonance / band width and volume. Each of these filters can occur before (pre) or after (post) the "Clipper".
    Finally, there is a large volume of output for this kind of effect.
    A note that has 90 presets that are embedded a round summary horizon of possibilities for this effect.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Devastor works perfectly on my Mac Pro with Mac OS 10.6.8 and Digital Performer. CPU consumption is close to zero.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this plug-in for several years, and in my tool, it competes with many other modules saturation. In fact, I did perhaps not as much as the great "Ohmicide" Ohm Force uses. But depending on each situation, I would prefer a particular plug-in. Through its Devastor filters has a wide variety of sounds. I used to vote (in an improper context) but I use it mostly on synth sounds when I want a distortion with an attack so slightly marked. I noticed that also gave good results on bass. Still, for less than 40 euros, Devastor offers a price / quality ratio very interesting and I would do without hesitation that choice ..

    Install nickel, except that D16 has changed its policy of file space with access BUD client, it does not receive it. Key by mail but you have to connect to the site, I pass the temporary pa reu-mail but after contacting the media Saturday 11:30 a, I reu a little after 12pm and I could save it.
    Many brands should draw leons ...

    No incompatibility, for against, with analog Ableton, it is impractical to place a limit otherwise it just EXPLODED frequencies and as I made the headphone, a good word to put it all done on Devastator is a suicide, c ' is not for grateux'm a fan of Marshall! (Hi vinz)

    Otherwise clear config and just as expe Phoscyon, when you love fiddling with the button......

    Otherwise clear config and just as expe Phoscyon, when you love fiddling with the button like a mad scientist, we enjoy.

    Manuel? really no need.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Core2Duo Mac with 1GB of RAM, it happens.
    No bug or crash
    perf at top
    Stable

    OVERALL OPINION

    Since then, a week, I rhausse bass line and acid.
    Negative point? not bein on the need to not put any sauce, or else to place two times the same distortion on different tracks, must use the phase inversion (at least for tracks similaures at noon).
    J'avvait test modules full of distortion, most imitate the vintage look but not the sound and its really east guitarists. The little we do the funky using it as a filter.
    a reminder a few filters sherman dose if in fact good.
    Rappot quality? I think the best position
    I do it again without a choice because hsiter to inflate the bass benny Bennassi, I do not find something else.

    Were there any compatibility issues?  
    So far, there have been no compatibility issues.  I use a Macbook (2.2ghz, 4gb Ram, 320gb HD) with Logic Pro 8 and a Presonus firepod.  Everytime I load it up it works great.
    Is the general configuration/setup simple?
    There are a few different dials on the face, but after playing around with each one, I was able to get a good grasp of what they do.  I usually just start off with a preset (there are quite a few) and go from there.  This unit pretty much always adds an interesting sound to every track i put it on.<span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>

    Is the manual clear and sufficient?...

    Is the manual clear and sufficient?...  
    So far, no need for a manual.  If you are familiar with audio equipment and you have decent ears, you will get the gist of this unit.  
    Are the typical functions easily accessible? 
    All the dials are right on the face so I would consider them easily accessible.  


    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Does the software work correctly in this configuration?
    Yes, it works great, I have one complaint about it but I will address that below.  Overall it seems to process the signal very well and I have yet to notice any latency issues.
    What performance are you getting? (if quantifiable)
    If I had to quantify it, I would give it a 10 out of 10.  In a nutshell, it is a very powerful distortion unit.  Like I stated earlier, I use Logic 8 which has a bunch of built in processors which includes a few distortion units.  I really enjoy them but the devastator blows them out of the water.  Its gritty, strong (weak if you want it to be) and down right evil sounding.  I really enjoy it and use it much more often than the Logic units.  <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>
    Is this configuration (software and gear) stable?...
    So far it has never crashed or bugged out on me.  I almost never bounce my tracks until the very end just incase I want to tweak them, so I depend on my units to be very stable and this hasn't disappointed me yet.
    For how long have you been using it?
    The devastator has been in my arsenal for about 4 months now and has made it on 10 of the 12 tracks on my last album.


    OVERALL OPINION

    What thing do you like most/least about it?
    What I like most about the devastator is its wide range of distortion and its excellent sound quality (I recommend trying the telephone preset, pretty neat).  What I don't like about it, which happens to be what I don't like about a lot of plugins, is the lack of a wet/dry or mix option.  Sometimes I just want a little distortion on a track, but to do that you have to create a whole new track, copy the previous one and then effect it and finally adjust the volume so the combination of the two doesn't blow out your mix.  Very time consuming.  In my opinion, every plugin needs a wet/dry or mix feature on it.  This should be the standard.

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    I tried the Logic distortion plugins which didn't stand up to the devastator.  
    What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    I think I paid only $60 for this plugin, which is cheap compared to some of the price tags you see out there.  Overall, good quality for a low price.
    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?...
    Yes I would.
    Precision and quality of the sound?
    Very good crafted unit, and the sound it awesome!!!
