Great distorting plug. Can never have enough of these.
"I use Ableton Suite 9 currently. Large range of synthesizers, favourites include IL Harmor, Roy Papen's Blue 2, Adam Szabo JP6K, Serum, Spire, and of course Massive. As for processing I use Fab Filter Pro-Q 2 as my primary equalizer, Camel Audio Camelcrusher and Sugarbytes WOW for distortion, iZotope RX2 and Ozone 6 suites for various purposes, Valhalla shimmer for reverb along with Room and Ubermod for spatializing. Oh and BazzISM and Drumatic for creating drum samples And thanks to Eoin (Noisestorm) I just started using oxford transmod for transient modification."more
CamelCrusher is one of the most awesome distortion plugins ever created. You can use it on everything...drums, synths, basslines....and it makes them dirtier and nastier.
Sadly, Camel Audio has come and gone. I'm so happy to have a backup of this freeware plugin. Its effects give my mixes so much more crunch, snap, and lots more with it's 4 simple sections. If you listen closely, you'll hear it in some of my tracks.
Personally, I prefer Sausage Fattener, as you can do a lot more different things with that, but this is good, too. It provides distortion (I made 3xOsc sound like an electric guitar), but that's about all it does. This is still a good plugin, though, and I recommend it if you don't have $15 to pay for Sausage Fattener.
Oh, and you can still download CamelCrusher off of Splice here: https://splice.com/plugins/244-camelcrusher-au-vst-by-camel-audio. Just click "Get Now".
Okay for real Camel Crusher is like Marijuana for your speakers(I don't smoke and neither should you!) But it's a great free plugin that does the job well for compressing/distorting your tracks!
I use it to do effects on my synths and vocals, I dont really use it for what its used for but dont ask me why I dont even know either. But this is a cool distortion plugin so anyone who is looking for a distortion plugin this is the best way to go in my opinion. 6.9/10
The Camel Crusher is one of my most used plug-ins - so much that I would rate it indispensable. One of my true desert island plug-in. The best part: It´s free :-) Excellent for filtering, adding distortion and charecter to your tracks.
