iZotope has announced Trash 2, a new audio mangling and distortion device. Completely rewritten from the ground up from the original Trash, it has an entirely new sonic architecture, new features, optimized performance, better sound quality, and support for modern hosts and formats.
Trash 2 adds such new features as 20 new distortion algorithms, fresh filter modules, 50 new impulse responses, multiband waveshaping, 64-bit and AAX support and more.
“For Trash 2, we wanted to increase the level of freedom in the features that Trash 1 users loved best.” says iZotope Product Manager Jack Cote. “Now you can have even more influence over your sound, whether you’re loading your own impulse responses, creating new filter combinations, or designing and editing your own multiband waveshapes. With Trash 2, it’s a new era of personalized distortion.”
He says with Trash 2 you can:
° Distort in ways you never dreamed with the Trash module’s 60+ distortion algorithms, perfect for transforming your sound into something never before heard.
° Design your own unique distortions, from massive to mild and everything in between, with a new, customizable, multiband Waveshaper.
° Let your tracks inhabit any space or object with the new Convolve module.
° Choose from over 100 impulse responses, or load your own to put your bass in a washing machine or your keys in a cave.
° Find a new voice: make your audio speak and growl with two redesigned Filters, each one featuring new vowel formant filters, screaming peaks, node modulations, and more.
° Start trashing your audio immediately with an extensive new preset library and an ear-friendly Limiter that ensures you can play without fear.
You can also add the Edge Expansion Pack to Trash 2. Full of “extra-exotic and extra-gritty” presets for a broad range of sonic treatments, it’s designed for unconventional guitars, synth basses, synth pads, drum mangling, and more. The Edge Expansion Pack packs 30 new impulse responses for further tone coloring and 70 new presets built directly for these impulses.
The Trash 2 is available for US$149 (it’s regularly $249) through Dec. 6. The Trash 2 Edge Expansion Pack is available for an additional $29.
For a limited time, Trash 2 will be available as part of iZotope’s new Creative Bundle which includes Trash 2, the Trash 2 Edge Expansion, Iris+5, and Stutter Edit. This collection of production tools is available for $499 until Dec. 31.
