Spice up your mix

Picante works as a tone shaper, graphic EQ and light distorter. It can be made to add grit or a soft fuzz. The full range EQ gives you precise control even as the limiters introduce a nuanced amount of nonlinearities for tonal depth. A unique combination of limiters and saturation are used to obtain a light push overdrive that is perfect for bring out the grit in horns and vocals. If used more aggressively, it can be used to push a tone to be hard, but not heavily distorted.



  • High quality Parametric EQ
  • Q control for a large range of tone shaping
  • Limiter and compression for an extra push
