It’s arsenal of dirty bombs cover parallel compression, many flavours of dirt and filth, bit crushing, sample rate dropping and ring modulation. Add to that a 4 way XY pad and 2 tempo-sync LFOs and you can modulate up to 6 parameters to really throw that filth around the place. Time to get dirrrrrrrrrrty… Features

    • depth (0-100%) and phase (-360 to +360 degrees)
    • bar graph showing real-time modulation
  • Each LFO can also modulate an additional parameter from a choice of 10, with LFO1 also able to modulate LFO2
  • All modulated parameters have visual indicators of real-time modulation
  • Midi CC and Midi Learn options
  • over 50 presets covering subtle to painful
