*Toxic Smasher *combines Omnisphere’s Waveshaper with different filter types. It provides the same effect as the existing Waveshaper in Omnisphere, but with the flexibility of using it anywhere in an FX chain.

  • MINI-SLIDER
    Controls the mix of the dry signal and the processed (wet) signal. The percentage indicates the amount of the signal that is wet.
    Range: 0 to 100%

PAGE ONE CONTROLS

  • CRUSH
    Introduces distortion by reducing the resolution of digital audio. This lowers the dynamic range and increases the noise floor. Use this for achieving grainy or lo-fi sounds. The effect can range from slightly distorted to very harsh, depending on the setting.
    Range: 0.00 ~ 1.00
  • REDUCE
    Controls the amount of sample rate reduction that is introduced to the Oscillator. By reducing the sample rate, distortion and artifacts called “aliasing” are introduced to the sound. Generally, aliasing is avoided in digital audio, but here it can be used in a controlled manner to add wildly different tonal qualities. The higher this slider is set, the lower the sample rate, and the more pronounced the effect will be.
    Range: 0.00 ~ 1.00
  • WAVESHAPER 
    Drop-down menu for selecting one of the four preset waveshaping algorithms.
    These range from 1 (softer) to 4 (more aggressive).
  • DEPTH
    Controls the amount of waveshaping applied to a sound. The higher the setting, the more pronounced the effect. If Waveshaper is OFF, it will have no effect.
    Range: 0.00 ~ 1.00
  • GAIN
    Adjusts the overall output.
    Range: -inf ~ -0.00 dB

PAGE TWO CONTROLS

  • CRUSH FORCE
    This control adds a unique distortion to the bit depth for a more aggressive sound. This parameter will have no effect if the CRUSH knob is set to zero.
    Range: 0.00 ~ 1.00
  • REDUCE ANIM
    The Animation slider adds a dynamic, time-variant character to the sample-rate reduction. This parameter will have no effect if the REDUCE knob is set to zero.
    Range: 0.00 ~ 1.00
  • FILTER
    Drop-down menu for selecting the filter type: LPF, BPF, HPF, or OFF.
  • [FILTER] CUTOFF
    Controls the filter cutoff frequency.
    Range: 0.050 kHz ~ 19.00 kHz
  • [FILTER] RESO
    Controls the filter resonance.
    Range: 0.00 ~ 1.00

  • [FILTER] PRE/POST
    Controls where the filter sits in the audio path.

PRE places it before the crushed / reduced / wave-shaped signal, POST places it after.
