Thermal by Output – In this Top 5 Friday, Tim Cant takes a look at the hottest plugins around that will cause you sonic destruction. From red-hot distortions to mind-bending multi-fx units, we pick out our favourite ones around at the moment! SampleX (Beatskillz) In the early days of sampling technology, sampler hardware was good, but not quite as good as the tech of today. Early samplers would introduce digital artefacts while running at a lower than ideal quality, and it’s these imperfections that SampleX is built to emulate. With control over Bit Depth, Sample Rate, Aliasing and Drive, SampleX can bring those time-honoured imperfections into your modern DAW project – and there’s also an analogue-style filter to smarten things up a bit. With presets for samplers like the E-mu SP range and the Ensoniq Mirage, you can instantly get the feel of old-school tunes. Mishby (Freakshow Industries) The well-named ‘Tape Abomination’ is all about doing the dirtiest of dirties to your tracks, adding the sound of bad-quality tape, bad digital signals, glitching and tape wow into your lovely, innocent, impressionable DAW channels. You might have to do some brain work to get past the controls on the interface, but it’s the sound that matters, really – and that sound is a mindbending, destructive audio processing chain that might just make you want to travel back in time and shoot it at birth. RC-20 Retro Color (XLN Audio) This one is usually more of a retro-izing plugin, letting you control Noise, Wobble, Distortion, Space and Magnetic sounds to bring some old-school tint into any track. But there’s nothing stopping you from pushing RC-20 Retro Color to its extremes, pushing up the blend dials and the Flux controls for some all-out signal-smashing bad behaviour. Shove up the noise, crank up the distortion, and introduce some wildly fluctuating tape-style signals, and RC-20 will get you that grungy, degraded audio that your mother warned you about all those years ago. Stutter Edit 2 (iZotope) Whether you’re using it to glitch out a single track or to go nuts on your entire mix, Stutter Edit can completely transform any input signal with its timebending, buffer-repeating antics. From the twisted minds of electronic producer Brian Transeau (BT), and the degenerates at iZotope, this plugin serves to glitch, stutter and generally mess up everything you throw at it. Slicing and dicing for a basic ‘edit’ is instant in Stutter Edit 2, but you can dive in much deeper by drawing custom movements in the curve editor, and adding a stock of effects to change the character of the glitch effect you’re working on. Thermal (Output) This distortion effect is here to recombine and mess with your sounds. Once you send some audio through the Thermal, you can expect to get back something new, creative, and instantly inspiring. Using the circular visualizer on the main page makes things easy, or you can go deeper with Thermal and hit up the distortion controls, take hold of modulation, and apply effects to your own liking. Portal is a unique sound-making machine – whatever you chuck into it, you can never tell what’s going to come flying back out at you.
