Audio Plugin Deals offers the TrapDrive (€19.90 value) plugin by Diginoiz as an exclusive free download until September 2nd, 2021.
Diginoiz states that TrapDrive is a distortion plugin developed specifically for trap music and similar music styles. It’s supposed to work equally well on trap vocals, 808 basslines, guitars, even full mixes.
All that said, there’s really no reason to use a particular distortion plugin for a specific style of music. Even the Diginoiz team finishes their description with the following statement: “Of course, you can use it on your EDM synths and Heavy Metal guitars too!”
So, if you’re on the lookout for a shiny new distortion box for your DAW, why not grab TrapDrive and take it for a test drive (ha!) while it’s free?
The plugin is fairly easy to use. There are four knobs (Input, Type, Amount, Output) and three buttons that control the bypass mode, DC offset, and oversampling (4X).
The most interesting control is the Type knob which lets you select one of the eight available distortion modes. TrapDrive can deliver soft clipping, hard clipping, bit crushing, and a few more exotic distortion flavors that are both sonically hard and hard to pronounce.
Speaking of heavy distortion, Diginoiz posted a disclaimer that says: “Please do remember about ear care, TrapDrive is indestructible, but your health is!”
It’s always good to be reminded about protecting your ears. Keep the master volume at a reasonable level, especially if you’re using headphones. Use ear protection whenever possible and try to prevent excessively loud volume spikes from negatively impacting your hearing.
Of course, TrapDrive isn’t all about heavy distortion. You can fine-tune the distortion amount and flavor with the Input, Type, and Amount controls. So, you can use it as a saturation tool, a clipper, or Terminator that was sent back from the future to exterminate any remains of audio fidelity in your mix.
All that said, our main goal here is to make some great-sounding music. The video embedded below will let you hear TrapDrive in action and decide whether it’s a worthy addition to your favorite DAW:
The plugin is normally priced at €19.90 at Diginoiz, but you can get it for free for a limited time only via Audio Plugin Deals.
