Review: SoundToys Devil-Loc Deluxe VST plug in
Positives:Great audio destroyer, very rich and full distortion, parallel processing a major plus
Negatives:You don't have it yet
Welcome to the dark side. Stop reading and buy this plug in if you want to beautifully destroy whatever you run through this.
Essentially an emulation of the old shure level-loc this plug in features compression (crush), distortion (Crunch), High roll off (darkness) and a mix knob (very nice).
Exceptional uses for this thing are doing parallel compression of the entire drum kit, kicks and snares by themselves, Vocals, and direct guitars. You can get a really awesome inmdustrial sound by plugging electric guitars direct in and running through this plug in.
It fattens kicks and adds that dirt, It takes the room mic on a kit and destroys it beautifully. I like to mix a little bit of the destroyed room sound in with the rest of the kit.
$129 for a super fun plug in made by a top notch plug in maker, Soundtoys is also on top of the AAX 64 bit thing too so buy it now and it will be ready for Pro Tools 11
