Straight from LAB:ONE Recordings' PATRIOT range of effect units come Punisher, an effective sound manipulation device that can warm up to completely destroy your sounds.
Punisher Audio Mutator: from hammer-smashed tambourines to Category-5 hurricane windcapless mics, we got 'em all!
Punisher is a collective of 5 in-line effects that can help push your sound over the edge.
- Drive: input driver from unity up to +18dB level gain.
- Bias: DC offsetter plus softclipper
- Twist: deformation of the audio signal
- Warp: further mutilation of the audio signal
- Excite: a frequency focused exciter
- Feedback: from flange to full on delay
- Mix: from bone dry to dripping wet
- ClipSafe: secondary softclipper to prevent overs when driven hard
All effects can be turned on or off, and follow the flow across the front of Punisher's main panel. You can choose the effects you want.
The Dual-Function Display on Punisher (and all Patriot range devices) allow the user to access alternative views and settings* to help visualize the effect process as well as audio signal monitoring (pre and post effect). Punisher includes audio metering inputs and outputs, as well as an oscilloscope with 3 vertical zoom modes. All Dual-Function Displays include an 'ears only' mode (turns the display off), so you can be less distracted visually while submersing aurally.
Punisher also includes a dedicated CV input and trim for all the knob controls on the front panel.
Additionally, all the PATRIOT devices include a 'mode' setting on the back via the power light. GREEN indicates the device is active for processing, RED indicates the device is in bypass mode, and OFF indicates the device will not send out or process audio. A handy approach to determine which devices are in action and perfect for the back-of-the-rack enthusiasts.
