Eventide’s Crushstation gives you the ultimate stereo distortion toolkit to add grit, drive, and depth to your sound. With 35 factory presets and a wide range of individual controls to dial in, experience everything from subtle crunch to creamy saturation to screaming overdrive.
CrushStation brings multi-effects to the mix by adding a three-band EQ, Compression, Octave Mix and, Eventide’s unique take on failing hardware, the Sag control. Use the MIX Control to blend your dry signal with CrushStation to create parallel compression, distortion, and other creative effects.
CrushStation’s combination of ingredients creates a plug-in that excels at the three broad ways distortion effects can be deployed. FX expert and author, Alex Case, refers to them as the “3Fs”: FIT, FIX and FEATURE.
35 PRESETS painstakingly tailored to cover all the bas(s)es
DRIVE from shallow subtle boost to deep overdrive distortion
GRIT and SUSTAIN pushes into fuzz territory
SAG was inspired by our experience of the sound of dying analog gear; the power rail sags and the amp starts sputtering, cutting out and sounding ‘broken’
MIX in higher and lower OCTAVES then turn up the DRIVE and SUSTAIN to crush them together to form massive new textures
GRIT for low-end, gritty, chugging sounds
3-Band EQ to shape your tone
GATE your signal to tame an aggressive distortion output, or get aggressive with high threshold gating and dry MIX for parallel gated crunch
RIBBON lets you ‘play’ the effect in real-time and provides dynamic and fluid control to morph back and forth between the settings of your choice
HOTSWITCH allows you to instantly switch between two distinct settings within the same preset at the push of a button
MIXLOCK keeps MIX control constant as you audition presets
