For this article, we advise you to quickly grab a big plate and take a seat, because we found a large chunk of chow for you to set your teeth into. Of course, we mean this not in a literal fashion but figuratively, in a silly attempt at referencing the newest offer from ChowDSP. They just released their new plugin “BYOD“, short for “Build-Your-Own-Distortion“, and as per Chow-tradition, their plugin-realm is a moneyless society meaning BYOD is forever FREE!
BYOD is aimed at guitar distortion, with the ability to create your own custom guitar effects. BYOD is a modular-like host environment with several separate effect-processors that can be hooked up into a processing chain that routes the signal between the processors. The separate processors can be chained in series and parallel, and hooking them up and releasing them is as easy as plugin-pie.
Each has similar control, making for uniform ease-ability and efficiency, still very important to every guitarist and DAW-worker out there. The result is an extremely useful plugin that can generate the most inspiring effects imaginable, by which the bounds of one’s imagination are only constricted to the number of processors one can cable together inside the bowels of the internal BYOD-space. For more information on its functionality, please consider the brief but transparent manual located here.
BYOD is open-source software, meaning that it is of course free to use for everyone. There is no registration or other unnecessary convolution because open-source is as straight and true as it is wide open and accessible to everyone, including outside contributors to the further development of the plugin. As a no-dough deal, the bread it bakes is thick but soft and palatable. More, please?
