Dual Distortion Reactor

Twist the simplest groove into a gnarled web of crushed resonance; bring your instruments, vocals, and loops to life with stacked analog drive; zap a synth drone into glitchy bit-crushed mayhem that dances to your beat.

Dist COLDFIRE lets you harness not one, but two powerful distortion engines, exploring their unique and explosive synergy, and creating entirely new sounds with any input signal. This is sonic alchemy on an unprecedented level, yours to master and manipulate - what will you create?

Totally Custom Distortion

This is no ordinary on/off, dry/wet, analog/digital distortion. Pair up any of the 11 distortion types, from emulated tube heat to icy digital bit crush, customize your routing, sprinkle in some modulation, and forge sonic carnage that’s totally your own.

For Any Sound

Enrich, saturate, pulverize, or transform any sound beyond recognition. Whether you’re looking for warm vocal enhancement, monstrous kick drum impacts, speaker-rattling bass fuzz, or denser-than-black-hole wavefolding, Dist COLDFIRE packs every punch you need.

More Than Crunch

Create resonant metallic melodies, introduce artificial harmonic reflections, trigger wildly destructive feedback loops; go beyond conventional distortion with 6 custom modulation slots, 16-step sequencing, comb filtering, and much more.

Intuitive But Powerful

Simple enough to create exciting dual distortion effects in just a few easy clicks, but flexible enough to become totally immersed in destructive sound design, Dist COLDFIRE strikes the balance between quickfire plugin and deep processing powerhouse.


The Sound of Alteration

Distortion is a universal thing, a cause and effect, a means and an end. The folding of an analog waveform; the dense fizziness of a classic ‘70s guitar stompbox; the bite of a sound that’s passed its threshold.

In the sphere of contemporary music, it can mean the pumping analog imperfections of artists like Caribou and Floating Points; the hybrid industrial soundscapes of acts like Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy; the seismic guitar sounds of everyone from Eric Gales to Bring Me The Horizon; the gritty, intimate production of today’s songwriting pioneers like Billie Eilish and Phoebe Bridgers.

Distortion says ‘don’t settle for a sound’. Engage Dist COLDFIRE and alter, experiment, twist, smash, and savor both the means and the end.


A Closer, Look

Explore its accessible interface and flexible features, and savor whatever degree of destruction you’re looking for. On the other hand, if you’re looking to take your destructive sound design deeper, its advanced panel offers heaps of extra functionality and room for experimentation.

Distortion

control panelsTap into each of Dist COLDFIRE's 11 distortion modeswith specialized control for each one, from bit depthto tube wiring. Each mode features controls for outputlevel, dry/wet level, and bypass

Master Controls

Control the master input and output levels of Dist COLDFIRE, inject some post-distortion tilt EQ, and tweak the dry vs. wet signal to ensure that your distorted sound is heard loud and clear.

Routing Selection

Rearrange the signal flow between Dist COLDFIRE's two distortion engines to unlock an array of compound sound-alterations, from the uber-saturated to the unpredictably wild. 

Routing Balance

For parallel, stereo, mid/side, and band split routing configurations, click and drag the routing balance to flow smoothly between the sound of both engines. Better still, you can modulate this parameter for unstoppable movement between your chosen distortions.

Visualizer

From vivid coloration to grainy pixelated textures, see your distortion in action with the central real-time visualizer, color-coded to match your chosen algorithms. This can also be bypassed for a focused workflow.

Pre Filter Controls

Sculpt your sound before it reaches Dist COLDFIRE's distortion engines; you've got 6 modes to choose from, including resonant low/band/high pass, plus notch and comb filtering for carving edgier input signals.

Post Filter Controls

Get a little bit surgical with your sound post- distortion and ensure that everything sits nicely in your mix with a simple 2-band EQ.

Dynamics

The Dynamics module is a secret weapon up Dist COLDFIRE's sleeve. With pre or post-distortion configuration, enhance your sound's response and impact with a built-in Limiter, Compressor, and Multiband Compressor.

Feedback

Create sprawling distorted reflections, make drums resonate like strings, and sprinkle warped glitchy rhythms into your projects with this filtered feedback delay module. Sync to tempo, quantize to pitch, or set it loose entirely.

Modulation

Swap static sound processing for distortion that evolves, flickers, and dances to your tune. Dist COLDFIRE comes armed with 6 freely assignable custom modulation slots: choose from a syncable LFO, multi- stage function generator, custom envelope follower, or 16-step sequencer, with dozens of parameters to modulate at will..


The Distortion Catalyst

From worn out magnetic tape to clipped-signal circuitry to dramatic folds in analog waveforms, distortion can exist in many forms.

Dist COLDIRE fuses 11 of these forms into a single explosive plugin, from red-hot analog to ice-cold digital, each with distinctive controls. Get experimental and discover wild compound reactions yet unheard.


Analog

Tape

Dial in some grainy tape-style saturation and degradation, particularly effective on the low-end, perfect for that organic lo-fi sound.

Tube

The soft-clipping warmth and depth of the vacuum valve sound, rich in harmonics and highly responsive to your input.

Transistor

The biting response of classic echo box preamps, known for its presence and edgy character, great on guitars.

Transformer

A simulation of the nuanced distortion created by magnetic hysteresis, with two options: nickel, for subtle processing, and iron, for more low-mid emphasis

Germanium

The screaming tone made famous by Germanium diode amps, distortion pedals, and fuzz boxes, bright and red-hot.

Force

Based on classic studio outboard gear, with 4 modes of operation ranging from analog saturation to roaring overdrive, great for your mix bus.


Digital

Rectifier

Imitating the unique harmonic overtones and zapped character achieved by reshaping a waveform’s negative phase.

Bit Crusher

Edgy harmonics and glassy digital noise achieved by reducing the sample and bitrate of a sound, making anything sound harsh and robotic

Bit Inverter

Introduce crisp digital distortion and unexpected artifacts by modulating a signal’s bit content in real-time.

Wavefolder

By distorting the shape of your signal’s waveform, this mode delivers unique overtones and harmonic alterations beyond recognition with 7 shapes.

Waveshaper

An incredibly flexible mode with 11 subtypes of operation, from shattered-signal fuzz to surprisingly resonant asymmetrical drive.
