It’s commercial common knowledge that “people always want more distortions” and this is exactly what Ohmicide: Melohman is delivering. In one death blow.Based on Predatohm design, Ohmicide:Melohman is organized around up to four frequency bands, each of them coming with their own Noise Gate, Dynamics, Distortion, Feedback Generator and all mixing abilities with just a twist of pre- and post-processing (distortion input, high shelf output…).
The DSP is 100% different from Predatohm: compressor/expander works differently to fit well with both the very sharp Noise Gate we’ve included and the huge amount of new distortions. Those are at the core of Ohmicide. They’re designed to offer pretty much everything you can think of next to a lot of things you can’t think of. Some, like the tasty “Porridge” distortion sounds deliciously analog, while the “Fractal” one is harsh and digital as hell. Or you’ve got the very dense “Accumulator” that can add low harmonics instead of high.
All those distortions are mainly new breeds – yet the classics are also covered. They all are declined in three variations: normal, ampsim and odd. The “Odd” one is terribly exciting as it gives you control on the harmonics frequency and allows for slightly detuned distortion. Last but not least, we’ve added a disto type that was missing from Predatohm… No distortion. It was an absolute need, considering how many things can be done just by using the multiband dynamics and/or the filter!
Indeed the filter that allows the band separation – much steeper than the Predatohm’s – is matched with a recombining filter that correct the phase shifts it induced. This improves greatly the transients preservation as well as the filter sound. Add to this an interesting dynamics processing and you’ll end up using it everywhere. We’ve warned you!
Predatohm addicts will be happy to know that not only does Ohmicide:Melohman include a feedback generator on each band, but that it can be spread in stereo.
Combined with all the different disto and melohman features it’s a huge larsen soundscape waiting to spice up your tracks.
Already known to Symptohm:Melohman and Minimonsta:Melohman users, Melohman is a set of features dedicated to live action. It allows you to morph between presets or randomize the sound in an intuitive, organic way. Just plug a Midi keyboard on your computer and play notes to go from one sound to another at a velocity sensitive speed. For the first time it is included on an effect, and it shows very exciting results for anything that involve live mix/remix as well as very efficient in a production situation. Also used in a midi pattern logic it’s a very powerful tool for every loop manglers.
