"Let There Be Drive" - with God Mode from denise audio

The God Mode introduces a new push-pull technology giving you full control over what frequencies to saturate and distort. It’s node EQ graph and linear phase filters allow for unlimited options to shape the coloration of your sound.



The push-pull technology is inspired by the legendary analog Pultec EQ, a passive tube eq from the 50s, widely used in the 70s/80s for both broadcasting and mixing. The Pultec EQ would ‘push’ the gain for a certain frequency range into its tube circuit, and would then ‘pull’ it back again, to smooth out the frequency response. This creates a sound close to the original but with a nice warmth added to the boosted frequency ranges. The God Mode introduces a modern version of this technique.

Quote:
“I use saturation in almost every sound I create, so I’m always looking for the best saturation tool for my music. This is not only the best sounding one, it’s also the most complete and practical plugin ever.” – Nico Astegiano, YouTuber/Producer
The first step to using the God Mode is to boost or ‘push’ certain frequencies in your track that you like to be more saturated or distorted. You can for example use one shelf to boost the highs and one peak to boost a certain color or resonance. Because you push these frequencies harder into the saturation algorithm, they will be naturally more affected by it. The second step is to decide if and how much ‘pull’ to apply to the boosted frequencies. This gives you creative control over the amount of coloration and the option to create a perfectly balanced frequency response for your track.



The God Mode’s push-pull technology allows you to create perfectly balanced saturation no matter how dynamic your track is. In addition, how sweet would it be to use multi band distortion in parallel or to create a proper dry/wet mix without phase issues? Because the God Mode uses linear phase filters, you can now blend in the effect as you please, either in a very extreme way for creative purposes or subtle additions during mastering. The God Mode gives you ultimate control and creativity.

The plugin doesn’t stop there though. It has a ‘live’ mode for recording, that uses regular filters without latency instead of linear phase filters. It has a side-chain to create rhythmic distortion effects, and you can pan the wet and dry sound individually. In addition, one of the three drive effects uses a ‘on steroids’ version of the Tape Analog VM™ algorithm we know from the Bad Tape. It allows for subtle saturation on the master as well as crazy over the top distortion effects on bass, vocals and synths.

Quote:
“The sidechain function is actually quite a bit of fun! I’ve been playing about with it on reverb/delay sends and getting some really cool results compared to my usual ‘dirty verb’ tricks.” – Venus Theory, YouTuber/Producer
  • Super easy-to-use Graph
  • Unique Push & Pull technology
  • Tape Analog VM™ algorithm on steroids that we’re known from the Bad Tape
  • Linear Phase Filters: Pristine sound quality and in-phase dry/wet mixing.
  • Individual dry/wet panning
  • Live recording mode with with zero latency.
  • Create rhythmical drive with the ‘side-tape’ side chain
  • Subtle to extreme use on single track instruments, busses & mastering

Grab your copy of God Mode from the denise store for a limited introductory price of €39 ($42/£34/¥4,525), and get an extra 20% off in the spring sale. Happy producing!

I have a feeling I'm going to use this A LOT to distort then modulate reverb tails and swells!

Yano,for a tape algorithm it doesn't half break in the most unpleasant,digital way imaginable.run a low saw wave through it and see what results.also not sure why you implemented this with linear phase filters.anything other than broad Q's is just going to ruin any transients,impulses and sounds with any granularity you run through it

Also asked this in the Punisher topic, but developer is terribly silent on this: what are the options for oversampling?

In my view a distortion plugin developer releasing stuff in 2020 cannot do without.

Linear phase filters is a turn-off for me. I just don't use them in all but the rarest cases.

Good luck with it all

Hey Stikkers, sorry to have missed something here. What was the question you were hoping to get answered?

If you have a copy of the plugin now ane are looking for some inspiration, I can highly recommend Venus Theory's YouTube tips videos using both Punisher and God Mode:



Enjoy!

The question is literally in the quote you just made

Distortion creates a lot of unwanted aliasing.
Oversampling can deal with this problem. iZotope Trash 2 en True Iron for example have oversampling options.
However, I don't see any oversampling option in your plugin.
What's your view on this?

Ah yes, I overlooked that! I've passed the question onto the developer and will get back to you when I get an answer.

Oversampling? I watched a little, but was this addressed?

Hi, I am tempted, but isn´t it just a "Spectre" with less options? What do you think? I already got Spectre. Can it add something new to the pallette, then I´m in? Thank you.

Hi there back to Berlin
As being really really positively surprised by perfect room, I bought GodMode also. I like it, beside the unusable tiny GUI on 2560x1440 screens. But I was surprised here too due to a online C/R check. I "hate" such mechanism to the bone and didn´t expect that, after Perfect Room didn´t do that. You should notify possible new users about that on your Homepage! If I knew I don´t know if I had bought.

Now I´m having fun with it and only can hope you´ll do an GUI update as well as there will be a responding server, whenever I need it, somewhere in the future

Stay safe and sound.

A bit strange really. Denise.audio comes to this forum to tell about the launch of their products. Three people ask the same simple question, and they are not able to respond. Maybe they only respond in their live stream thing. Certainly not going to spend another hour for that.

The product does not have oversampling, and I would like to know their view on this, why they chose not to implement it.

Hey Stikkers, thanks for your question. Due to increased demand interest in denise plugins, we're currently experiencing a bit of a delay to get round to all questions. The question of oversampling will be answered as soon as we can.

Take care.

Hi Joe,

Has the PDC reporting in “perfect room” been fixed yet or in progress in relation to when the plugin has been bypassed. I am working in Cubase ( I know Ableton has some strange behaviour of not reporting properly in general) but when I bypass perfect room there is a delay/echo happening.

I know that this has been reported some time ago and you are aware of this. In all honesty I have not looked to see if there is an update yet. Hoping there might be less delay in samples as well

I noticed this too, it might be latency?

The plug is very high in latency for this type, around 100 samples and this delay/echo happens on a return. If testing other plugins on the return there is no echo when they are bypassed and all is normal, but “perfect room isn’t !! It causes a delay/echo when bypassed so can’t be reporting properly, I guess.....

Nevermind! Take all the time you need to market your product and make fancy youtube videos, I won't be considering it anymore. Enough other alternatives around from developers that can actually answer simple questions or have stuff implemented so that I don't even have to ask them.
