Something that can match Soundtoys Decapitator?

Postby dagovitsj » Wed Nov 21, 2012 2:54 pm

Hi!
I did a search for Decapitator in this forum and found a thread from 2010, talking about something new that was coming from TrancendingMusic, but the thread stopped (?).
http://www.acustica-audio.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=523&p=4652

Was it VCult?
http://www.tmusicaudio.com/nebuladistortion.html

Anyone know if VCult is something similar to Decapitator regarding sound and easyness?

I gues it was Vcult.

I have both. And the two are very VERY different.

It depends of what ur looking for.

You defenetly have a super nice analog modeling distortion using Decapitator.

I use nebula for its subtilness, and Decapitator for disto! (decapitator can be very soft if you want)

I hope this helps.

Hi!
I'm thinking about using the Decapitator on vocals, to just lift them a hair or two in a mix, so they don't get masked in a busy mix.

cheers

You could give Gemini Audio's "KultComp Tube a try. It's also a tube distortion effect and can be used for subtle to more noticeable distortion.

Right! I have Gemini Audio's "KultComp Tube2 on my list (together with his compr and pre!), but nice of you to point it out that it could be used in this way.

What is the Decapitator really doing, is it kind of a specific distortion in the mid band or something like that?

If I were to use the Gemini KultComp Tube, would you eq it to target certain frequencies for a male/female vocal to lift them up/out of a busy mix, to give them precence without sticking to much out?

Maybe Y10 Vocal Saturator by Yuval will do the job.

Try cupwise tube fm1 and fm4 (fm4 has a lot of distortion), they are pretty nice, you can use them in and aux/send and blend to taste or even as an insert if you want to go mad!!! Cupwise has great libraries, totally different to everyone else. You can listen some examples in his page.

I'd suggest to try the KultComp Tube demo, to see if it suits the voice.

Sorry, but I can't find anything about this with Google. Is there a misspelling somewhere?
