THERMAL makes it easy to experiment and dial in new distortion sounds. A user-friendly experience is key to controlling the deeply powerful, multi-stage engine.

More Than Distortion
THERMAL goes far beyond traditional multi-band distortions. The XY control is highly interactive, providing an easy interface to enhance harmonics by tapping into its layered engines, each with analog and digital distortion algorithms, effects, modulation and imaging.

Explore the Details
Dig into THERMAL’s Advanced Page to get into the nitty gritty.

Go beyond the presets and interact with the distortion on the waveform display, tweak modulation envelopes and add effects.

Waveform Display
Hone in on a specific frequency range by dragging the handles on the waveform and adjust volume using the slider. Turn band split on to activate the crossover filters.

Distortion & Effects
Choose from 19 analog and digitally modeled distortion algorithms. Add harmonics and grit, shape amplitude and add frequency modulation.

Width & Tone
Add a final touch to each stage by adding Mid Side and time-based width, then shaping highs and lows using the Tone panel.
