A year or so ago, in our never-ending quest for unique mangling tones, we came across wavetable lookup distortion. This turned out to be an excellent source of destruction, and we immediately rolled it in to a Eurorack product called Shapes. Every time we were back in DAW-land, we wished we had Shapes as a plug-in for use in our productions, and finally, we just sat down and made it.
Grind is a multi-effect consisting of a front-end gain stage (with gate) to a wavetable lookup block, to an algorithmic saturation/distortion block, to a multi-mode filter with eleven (!!!) different modes, including “vintage” DSP from the early days of VST, on up to our modern analog modeled filters.
