Should I Buy It? – Waves MDMX Distortion Bundle

Should I Buy It? – Waves MDMX Distortion Bundle Yeuda has been busy here at Beat Lab, we just started a new video review series called ‘Should I Buy It?’ where he covers plugins. Yeuda lays down his skills this time to check out the new MDMX Distortion Bundle from Waves Audio, released with a bang over Thanksgiving. Three new plugins each with their own flavor, we didn’t see that coming! Whether you’ve tried them yourselves or not, watch the video to hear our take on these new plugins.         MDMX Fuzz     Right off the bat, we could tell that this is some serious distortion.

Abletunes Knobs – Single-knob Plug-ins: Drive, Attack, and Space ( Free Download) Abletunes Knobs is a free VST bundle that includes three separate single-knob plugins, Drive, Attack, and Space. Abletunes mapped several parameters to single knobs limiting the versatility and customization, but their effectiveness comes from their simplicity. They are incredibly easy to use and can add a lot of character to drums, baselines, and synths simply by adjusting the knobs. Knobs also use a very low percent of the CPU so it won’t interfere with playback or slow down Ableton during a live set.  The Drive knob combines analog style saturation and an overdrive. It adds some crunchy wide-band distortion, giving the sounds extra tone, color, and grit. When set to 100% you can get some filthy sounding bass sounds with great energy. The Attack knob is a simplified transient shaper without a sustain knob. It can give more …
