Sonic Destructor, a new plug-in for TC Works’ Spark FX Machine and Spark Version 2.5 is now available as a free download for registered users of Spark FX Machine, Spark 2.5 and Spark XL 2.5, all of which are Mac compatible.
Spark is a US$399 audio processing application. Spark FX Machine is a $499 tool for building your own modular synthesizer, mastering processor or massive multi-FX. It’s compatible with any Mac VST system.
The Sonic Destructor provides a tool for vinylizing or otherwise “dirtying-up” audio recordings. It sports eight Lo-Fi effects such as BandPass, Bitter, Clipper, Crackle, Fuzzer, Noise, Rumble and Squeezer. The Sonic Destructor is capable of extreme compression, downsampling and narrowing the frequency range, according to the folks at TC Works.
Plus, it provides a preset randomiser as well as dynamic parameter knobs, which intuitively change depending on the effect loaded. All effects can be used simultaneously and each module may be loaded multiple times.
