Devastor is a simple Multiband Distortion Unit. It is an enhanced version of the distortion unit from Phoscyon.
Devastor consists of four essential blocks:
The plug-in offers nine different connection topologies between its filters and diode-clipper. Filters can process the signal before or after it gets fed into the diode-clipper, but some of the configurations even allow the filters to work alongside the clipper.
Devastor's filters are not simply the peaking EQ type which are commonly used in classic multiband distortion units: rather, they are like those found in analog synthesizers (low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject) with adjustable resonance and cutoff parameters.
Devastor 2 is available in VST, AU and AAX plug-in formats.
Devastor 1 is still supported, which includes assistance from D16's Helpdesk and eventual hotfixes for potential bugs), but that support ceases on April 30, 2016. After that date D16 guarantees only activation and download links for Devastor 1 licensees.
