Abletunes has announced the release of Distort3r, a free multi-band distortion effect rack desgined for use in Ableton Live 9.

“It’s hard to imagine modern EDM production without good distortion plugin. Distortion is one of those plugins you will need to make your bassline or synth sound filthier and fatter. And this time we are presenting you our free multi-band distortion rack “Distort3r” for Ableton Live 9.”

Distort3r is a multi-band distortion effect which can be used to apply different amounts of distortion to three individual frequency bands. This is a handy technique when used sparingly, for adding a bit of polish to the top end without affecting the bass frequencies. The technique can also be used in a no holds barred manner, for creating modern bass sounds with heavy mid range grit.

The effect rack offers easy control over eight parameters, using macro knobs. The user can tweak the amount of distortion on each individual band on the go, along with master gain and output volume.

The rack is available for direct free download without registering. Simply hit the Download button on the page linked below to get your free copy of Distort3r.

On a related note, Abletunes has recently released Selektor, an interesting $35 sampler instrument designed for speeding up the beat making process. This VST/AU plugin will soon be reviewed on BPB.


Distort3r is available for free download via Abletunes (13 kB download size, ZIP archive, contains 1 multi-band distortion effect in ADG format for Ableton Live 9).
