What Is Audio Damage Dubstation 2?
Dubstation 2 is a painstakingly modeled, vintage bucket-brigade delay, made by Audio Damage, who make some of the most innovative & incredible sounding plugins on the market.
It’s a virtual analogue modeled delay plugin, meaning you’re gonna get all the dissonant & weird intricacies of original, vintage hardware.
Here’s what you’ll find in Dubstation 2:
- Double Up – gives you the ability to apply 2 delay’s inside 1 plugin. It gives you a separate control for each, with delay time control, a ping pong mode & a cross-feedback effect.
- Degrade – degrades your delay using analogue-style saturation. It also has some nifty low & high cut filters. You can use it to wreak havoc or inject warmth into your audio signal.
- Modulate – a LFO which can apply subtle chorusing, doubling effects & even chirpy pitch sweeps. This really adds to the real-ness of the vintage sound Dubstation provides. You can make some awesome, warping-ly good sound using modulate!
- Loop – a switch to turn your delay into a digital looper. Hitting this switch will prevent any distortion or modulation occurring to the looped signal. This can be useful if you want a sound to continue, but don’t want the extra effects on it.
It usually retails for $25 over on Plugin Boutique, but you can grab it for free right now using this current Loopcloud promotion.
As you can probably tell by the name, this plugin is perfect for that signature, old school ‘dub’ sound. If you’re looking to add some spacey, warping delays into your music – then you’re gonna love Dubstation 2.
To get the best out of Dubstation, you’re gonna want to go under the hood, & draw in some automation data. It’s best used on a send, or in an audio effect rack so you can blend your dry signal with the wet.
One of the coolest things about Dubstation is that the GUI has been specifically designed with high resolution screens in mind. For you Windows 4k users, you know this is a god-send.
It uses vector-based graphics, meaning you can resize the window to any size, and you won’t get any nasty pixels or having to squint to see f*cking everything.
