A distortion engine like no other



Trash and Burn

Give new life to your audio with the Trash module’s 60+ distortion algorithms.  Design your own unique distortions with the graphics-based Waveshaper.   Split the signal into multiple bands and apply distortion independently to individual frequencies, each with their own custom waveshape.  Chain two distortion algorithms for each frequency band for up to 8 different flavors of destruction.




Go Beyond Distortion

Don’t just add distortion!  Add texture, body, and depth to your audio with Trash 2’s extensive suite of modules.  Choose from over 100 impulse responses with the Convolve module.  Explore new sonic dimensions with the Delay and Dynamics modules.  Breathe life and movement into your audio using the dual Filters, each with 20+ evocative filter types to shape your tone.
