World’s first and only distortion with dynamic preservation control

BDE features several distortion styles, complimentary effects, M/S and Frequency control over the distortion field, along with the worlds first user definable dynamic preservation control function, allowing you to maintain the dynamic range of any signal while still applying a distortion effect. Simply put, if you want your reverb tail to sound distorted without raising its volume and altering the dynamics, BDE is the right plugin for you. It is also incredibly easy to use, with an auto leveling function allowing the plugin to perfectly level out your signal in under 2 seconds. The plugin features 6 different distortion styles with each getting progressively more destructive.

From Cherry Bomb to Nuke and everything in between, BDE offers all the distortion styles you could ever hope for, perfect for Hip Hop, Rock, Pop, and EDM music. With complimentary effects like bit crushing, down sampling, compression, color, and filters, BDE has a number of tools to help you quickly dial in the exact sound you want.

So what are you waiting for? Stop using these tiny, small, unfulfilling distortions. Give your songs some much needed BDE - Big Distortion Energy, from a Big Distortion Engine.
