Featuring the same pricing model as Freakshow Industries’ previously released Backmask plugin, Dumpster Fire is priced at $20 with the option to pay less or even download it completely free of charge (aka “steal” it). In other words, this is pretty much the “pay what you want” pricing model spiced up with Freakshow Industries’ unique sense of humor and lighthearted approach to marketing.
More importantly, let’s take a closer look at Dumpster Fire’s functionality. It is a pitch shifting tool that was designed to be more extreme and fun to use than most of the other similar offerings on the market. This is the type of effect that can hardly sound boring. Feed whatever type of audio through it, anything from a drum beat to a vocal, and you’ll surely be surprised by the sound on the output. You can use it on an FX send as a secret spice for layering on top of the clean signal, or as a track insert for the complete annihilation of the original audio source. Hell, you can even put on a Michael Myers mask and use Dumpster Fire as an insane mastering tool – today is Halloween, after all!
In typical Freakshow Industries fashion, the user interface is obscurely designed, forcing the user to explore the plugin’s capabilities by ear rather than following the on-screen labels or reading a manual. This usually leads to quite a few “happy accidents” while tweaking the controls and will generally provide a nice boost to one’s creativity.
You can buy Dumpster Fire for $20 or enter any other price at checkout. Although the plugin can be yours for free, it is highly recommended to purchase the license if you plan on using it in your studio. Let’s keep supporting the developers for the amazing work they are doing!
Dumpster Fire is available for purchase via Freakshow Industries (22.3 MB download size, EXE installer, 32-bit & 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AAX plugin format for Windows & MacOS).
