Punisher is a tape-style saturator with a unique way to control the coloration of the drive effect. You can use it to add flavour and character to synths, vocals and drums, or to entire beats or mixes.
How to punish?
Saturate & flatten your drums
Punish your bassline
Weight to a piano line
Presence to toms
Tape machine of the high end
Saturate your whole mix
Distort a kick drum
Add texture to a high hat
Make a synth cut thru the mix
Extra grit to a bassline
By adding Punisher to a drum bus you can help level out the dynamics and add a warm saturation at the same time.
Punisher can be used on extreme settings to really add grit and character to a bassline.
Add some weight and definition to organic sounds like a piano. Even with a higher drive, the piano maintains a natural sound.
Help a tom drum cut through the mix by adding a bright tone with some gentle punishment.
The tone from Punisher is equivalent to that of a tape machine, which can be added to the high end of a mix to add a nice brightness.
Add Punisher to the whole mix to really bring out additional harmonics from the sound.
If your kick drum needs so additional presence in the mix, Punisher can really help enhance the tone and deliver a more present kick.
Add a sharp brightness to hi hats by turning the punish dial up to full and bring those harmonics through in the mix.
Add Punisher to track layers in your mix to help them cut through and create a big presence in the final mix down.
If your bassline is too clean, then Punisher has the perfect solution for that.
Most saturator plugins have very limited features for affecting the coloration of the drive effect. Punisher uses a unique internal push/pull equalizer curve to tailor your saturation effect to your track. This way you can, for example, only target the high end of a drum beat, preserving the kick transients in a very natural way. Or only target the mid range of a synth to retain its definition.
