Ravage Lite Distortion VST/AU Plugin Is FREE Until December 17th!

9

SoundSpot has announced that the Ravage Lite (£19.99) distortion plugin is available as an exclusive free download from their website until November 22nd, 2018 (UPDATE: Ravage Lite is offered as a free download by Pluginboutique until December 17th, 2018).

Ravage Lite is a simple one-knob distortion effect offered in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for compatible digital audio workstations on PC and Mac. It is based on a set of distortion algorithms which will be featured in the forthcoming pro version of the Ravage plugin by the same developer. SoundSpot stated that the distortion algorithm featured in Ravage Lite is a combination of six different algorithms which will be included in the full release.

The user interface sports a large knob which controls the amount of drive applied to the signal and a couple of sliders for controlling the input gain and the oversampling multiplier (up to x16). The bypass switch is positioned in the bottom-right corner of the UI. The interface isn’t resizable but both the panel and the controls are conveniently sized for use on modern high-resolution screens.

I tested Ravage Lite on a number of different audio sources and the conclusion is that the plugin works quite well as a fast and easy distortion tool. I liked what it did to synthesized lead and bass sounds, as well as drums. The distortion character is pretty standard and not very exciting, but the ease of use is the main reason why you might consider downloading Ravage Lite for free. In my opinion, however, it is not worth the £19.99 price tag, so be sure to grab it before November 22nd this year.

To download your free copy of Ravage Lite, visit the product page linked below and complete the checkout process. You will receive your personal license key via email. After installing Ravage Lite on your computer, run the plugin and click the icon in the upper-right corner of the user interface to open the activation panel.

Ravage Lite is available for free download until December 17th via Pluginboutique (32-bit & 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AAX plugin format for Windows & MacOS).

    I used to think I liked Soundspot plugins – perhaps I was tricked by the pretty GUIs and the low sale prices on Pluginboutique – but I’ve quickly come to realize that their effects are extremely mediocre and in some cases downright terrible.

    I firmly believe that, if the Soundspot dev(s?) put as much effort into the code as they do on the GUI design, they could have a nice suite of plugins under their brand. It seems as though they come up with an effect idea then whip up a plugin as fast as possible to get it on the market. I’m not sure if the dev(s?) have the talent to make better-sounding software, but if they do, they really should consider taking the time to craft better products.

    Just my 2 cents.

    • The longer I’m in digital music production the more I came to realize, that like 90% of plugins are probably made-up “new” brands with the same old code behind. Would be a miracle if it was any different. Do you really believe, that small plugin devs and software houses go through the super-difficult process of starting from scratch completely, then investing $100.000 into (vintage) hardware and start to “precisely remodel” those units? A process that can easily take years, cost a big fortune and is prone to complete failure.

      I’m into software development and 99% of code, no matter if apps, websites, windows desktop applications, games, you-name-it is taken from github, stackexchange and blog websites, just outright copy&pasted, a little adaption here and there.

      I wouldn’t mind that if in the end I got a great new product with focus on new features and usability for a decent price. But the opposite is true with audio: We get half-baked, uninnovative and malfunctioning stuff with sometimes terrible user interfaces, crashing, sounding mediocre and get asked to pay the price of a used car, only 6 month later no more updates until we pay again. They all have gone to far with this in my eyes.

  2. I bought two Soundspot products (on sale at $1) but they are totally worthless!
    The gui is nice, but that’s about it.

    Also my 2 cents :)

  3. Anyone with problems activating Ravage?
    When I try to use it, a popup says I have a trial version and it has expired. Then I try to put the serial number I received by email and it says “License file not found”.

    Thanks

    • You need to install the “Trial” item in addition to your selected plugin format when running the installer. Once this is installed launch the plugin and select Continue Trial, then click the settings gear in the upper-right corner and provide the license number. It should activate.
