Subtle to extreme hardware-modeled saturation. The secret weapon of top mix engineers.
Decapitator is not just a simple approximation of the analog sound. We’ve worked hard to capture the feel of analog gear. Not a static snapshot, but a changing responsive model of all those tubes, wires and transistors. That means you can hear subtle changes as Decapitator reacts to a track and follows the dynamics of an instrument. That’s what analog is all about.
Decapitator is capable of some wonderfully subtle sounds, but we know
that sometimes subtle just won’t do it. That’s why we’ve added the
Punish button, which kicks in an extra chunk of gain to push Decapitator
over the edge. When you drive it hard it reacts just like great analog
gear—it screams in pain.
