Sonic Mayhem: Devil-Loc Deluxe

NOTE: This product requires that you have an iLok account for authorization, although it does not require a physical iLok key. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

SoundToys's Devil-Loc Deluxe spares nothing in its path of sonic destruction. When you want go go "further," but can't quite decide what that is, reach for Devil-Loc Deluxe. Crushing kick drums, massive sucking compression and insane rhythmic level-sweeps - this is dangerous sonic voodoo. The original Devil-Loc was cobbled together from the guts of a simple mic leveler when it came to light that pushing the device caused the signal to deteriorate in - shall we say - interesting ways. Use Devil-Loc Deluxe to conjure up your particular brand of sonic mayhem.

  • "Darkness" control for tone
  • Switchable slow or fast release times
  • Mix the original back in right on the front panel
  • Dark thundering drums

Sold my soul to the Devil-Loc

this thing absolutely kills on parallel drum buss. so much extra punch and girth for rock and roll kick and snare. I originally had the limited version and upgraded to the full version. Its worth it for the extra mix and darkness controls (otherwise I sometimes needed an EQ too). I have also used this on a distorted vocal track and it added the perfect amount of grit without getting ugly. Test it out and you WILL want it too.

Sounds great, but...

It sounds great like I was hoping it would, and it's super-earsy to use. But...It took over five weeks of technical support from John at Sweetwater to get it going. It just would not appear in the plug-ins list in Logic 9. To make a long story short, it is a 32-bit plug-in, and since I was running in 64-bit mode, it wasn't showing. I think, in retrospect, if the product description had indicated that it was 32-bit, I don't think I would have bought it.
