We moved the distortion to the next level by combining several familiar ideas into one plug-in, resulting in a talk box / scrimmer that can add groove to your track.
Forget complex audio routing and multiple LFO synchronization. Screamo has a special waveform editor that can modulate resonant filters, distortions and amplifications to bring any sound to life. Pull the bass lines out of the shadows with a slight movement or make the synthesizer line scream with rhythmic acceleration – the choice is yours.
Smear parameter – Two resonant shelf filters give an effect that resembles a talk box from modest to full effect. You can switch 3 different styles of effect: frequency modulation up, down or two-way.
Drive parameter – Use the Drive control to make your percussion loops crunch or synthesizers cut through the mix. Add subtle saturation to extreme overload to your signal. Soft, medium and hard distortion styles can be activated.
Sync everything – The Smear, Drive and Makeup controls are synchronized together, which allows you to create effects with time synchronization, which is usually very difficult to achieve with the usual routing plug-ins. Use the bottom row of the Shape, Speed, and Smooth knobs to create a waveform by controlling the 3 parameters in the top row. It is possible to create a slow-moving talk box effect or crazy waving overdrive.
All in one – Use simple controls to create an effect in your own style or use the built-in presets to convert sound with one click. 25 factory presets are designed to quickly launch and work with settings that vary from subtle saturation to wild overloaded rhythms. All of them are easily accessible from the plugins menu and, of course, you can save your own settings as custom ones.
