SquashIt Multi-band Distortion For iPad
Author Comments Off Tags Tags: , , ,

Squashit-Logo

“Squashit by Klevgränd Produktion is a lovely multi-band distortion effect for iPad. Squashit is very rich sounding AND it supports IAA. I would recommend this app to anyone looking to add a really fat and rich sounding distortion effect to their audio chain. It’s very crunchy and warm and yet very tame in regards to how perfect the distortion sounds. The UI is very responsive. No digital clipping either! Just a really solid sounding distortion. There is also a free audio unit plugin with the exact same algorithms and UI.” Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle) – iPadloops.com

This audio effect filter provides an unique distortion algorithm and should be essential in every music producers toolset. SquashIt doesn’t sound vintage, it just sounds good. SquashIt is developed by musicians for musicians.
Features:

• SquashIt! is Inter app audio (IAA) compatible. This means you can use it with Garageband or other IAA compatible sequencers.

• Load / Save presets.

• Remembers hosts (will automatically load last used settings when a host connects)

• Low cpu usage

• Simple but yet powerful user interface

Squashit is available for .99 cents.
