From gently shaping tones or adding a bit of sand to completely destroying a waveform, the Kombinat Tri is a complete sound war toolbox and a complete overhaul of our popular Kombinat series. With 13 different parameters in each of the three distortion engines, Kombinat Tri is capable of creating complex and unique sounds. Want to add ring modulation to the low frequencies, mild tube clipping to the mids, or a bit-down algorithm to the highs? No problems. The signal structure has a fairly wide palette of sounds, since each segment of the overall effect is a universal instrument. At the front end is a full "DJ-style" frequency-killer EQ; it leads to three distortion engines that can be used in multi-band mode for fine surgery or in burst mode for complete signal destruction. The sliders lead to a multi-mode filter with 12 different topologies, and then to a compressor that we have configured for unidirectional operation. Taken as a whole, Kombinat is a heaven for sound tweaking, but designed so it's easy to just take one of the presets and touch it a little to match the material being presented.
