Description : Beef is a new plugin with multiple effects designed to make your tracks juicy. Like a tender piece of meat soaked in juice, only here for your tracks. It has all the effects you need to enhance the sound of your tracks, packed into a simple interface. Gabriel, the developer, says it’s suitable for guitars, vocals, synths and other tracks.
Beef, yes, that’s its name, has a multi-stage 4-band EQ that gives you the ability to shape the sound before and after saturation. It is convenient to filter out certain frequencies before continuing your journey. This is followed by Noise/Velocity Modulation, which uses filtered noise to enhance and absorb tracks into noisy textures. Functionality known from saturation plugins. The latter appears in the third stage. Flexible saturation block with 6 selectable saturation algorithms including OD, lamp, distortion, tape and more.
A bit of crusher is also available for anyone who wants an even more noisy sound. It offers four different settings with which you can further enrich your sounds/tracks. Then you have the transient shaper, a great tool for shaping drum sounds. Last but not least, you have a limiter and a dry/mix section.
