Review and Tutorial: Rancorsoft Super Angry Distortion
Hello and welcome to this week's article!
Today we're going to review a saturation plugin produced by Rancorsoft and called "Super Angry Distortion".
This plugin is obviously made to add to a sound (for example a drum or a vocal track) some grit, to add some sparkle if the track is a bit dull, or to obtain creative results, with a downsample that can be really extreme and that can let us get sounds chiptune-like, or made with a vintage computer soundcard.
What is interesting is that this plugin, instead of just boasting "digital tube modeling" etc, it just gives us four different types of distortion, and lets us mix and match them until we find the equilibrium we need.
The knobs are:
Coarse Downsample this is a very gritty distortion, that lets us reach very fast a "chiptune" effect
Fine Downsample this one is a more subtle one, which preserves the original sound more
Even Harmonics this is a harmonic exciter that boosts the even harmonics, the ones generated from a tube amplifier
Odd Harmonics this harmonic exciter, instead, boosts the odd harmonics, the ones created from an analog, non tube, amplifier.
Wet/Dry and Volume obviously doesn't need an explaination.
This plugin differs from the other distortion or saturation processors on the market for its flexiblity: while others are often made to add a subtle saturation, this vst lets us range from that same saturation to incredible levels of distortion, incorporating capabilities typical of a bit crusher and a versatile harmonic exciter.
I would work a little bit more on the ui, which looks a bit cheap, but other than that, we really suggest you to check this plugin out.
