Dist COLDFIRE Dual distortion reactor

Dist COLDFIRE is a dual-engine distortion effect that goes from rich tube saturation to unrestrained sonic destruction in a few clicks. Combine analog & digital algorithms with deep modulation and customization, and unlock near-infinite distortion possibilities for your sound.

To create is to destroy

Twist the simplest groove into a gnarled web of crushed resonance; bring your instruments, vocals, and loops to life with stacked analog drive; zap a synth drone into glitchy bit-crushed mayhem that dances to your beat.

Dist COLDFIRE lets you harness not one, but two powerful distortion engines, exploring their unique and explosive synergy, and creating entirely new sounds with any input signal. This is sonic alchemy on an unprecedented level, yours to master and manipulate - what will you create?

Totally custom distortion

This is no ordinary on/off, dry/wet, analog/digital distortion. Pair up any of the 11 distortion types, from emulated tube heat to icy digital bit crush, customize your routing, sprinkle in some modulation, and forge sonic carnage that’s totally your own.

More than crunch

Create resonant metallic melodies, introduce artificial harmonic reflections, trigger wildly destructive feedback loops; go beyond conventional distortion with 6 custom modulation slots, 16-step sequencing, comb filtering, and much more.

For any sound

Enrich, saturate, pulverize, or transform any sound beyond recognition. Whether you’re looking for warm vocal enhancement, monstrous kick drum impacts, speaker-rattling bass fuzz, or denser-than-black-hole wavefolding, Dist COLDFIRE packs every punch you need.

Intuitive but powerful

Simple enough to create exciting dual distortion effects in just a few easy clicks, but flexible enough to become totally immersed in destructive sound design, Dist COLDFIRE strikes the balance between quickfire plugin and deep processing powerhouse.

Preset library

For when you need to quickly turn up the analog heat or shatter your sound with sub-zero digital crush, Dist COLDFIRE comes loaded with more than 150 specialized presets. From mix enhancers to wild modulated chaos, you'll find your distortion flavor in seconds.

The sound of alteration

Distortion is a universal thing, a cause and effect, a means and an end. The folding of an analog waveform; the dense fizziness of a classic ‘70s guitar stompbox; the bite of a sound that’s passed its threshold.

In the sphere of contemporary music, it can mean the pumping analog imperfections of artists like Caribou and Floating Points; the hybrid industrial soundscapes of acts like Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy; the seismic guitar sounds of everyone from Eric Gales to Bring Me The Horizon; the gritty, intimate production of today’s songwriting pioneers like Billie Eilish and Phoebe Bridgers.

Distortion says ‘don’t settle for a sound’. Engage Dist COLDFIRE and alter, experiment, twist, smash, and savor both the means and the end.
