DF-CLIP 2 was built from the foundation laid by the original DF-CLIP. While DF-CLIP 2 got a major facelift, the core concept of the plugin remained the same – create a ridiculously powerful peak clipper that works on both the harmonics and tones of any drum source.
Using LEGACY mode, you’re able to get that same extra saturation and punch in metal drums with all the great new benefits and features found in DF-CLIP 2.
While DF-CLIP 2 wasn’t designed to be a mastering plugin, that hasn’t stopped mastering engineers from getting in on the action! With DF-CLIP 2’s MODERN mode, you’re able to get crystal clear, full-bodied masters in a fraction of the time.
Percussion comes in all shapes and sizes, but sometimes you want to get truly brutal with your processing. Whether it’s a drum and bass loop or a hard-hitting drummer in a large space, modes like DIRTY and BOMB add awesome distortion effects to your sounds.
With DF-CLIP 2, you don’t need to sacrifice dynamic range or transient definition to get a fuller sounding drum kit. Using DF-CLIP 2 in CLEAN mode on overheads brings clarity and character to cymbals without decimating your live snare.
While all Drumforge plugins are designed with drums in mind, they’ve often got uses far beyond a single use case. For mixers working with subpar guitar or bass DIs, DF-CLIP 2 in BALANCED mode is the perfect way to add a bit more edge and aggression.
DF-CLIP 2 adds even more flexibility with its multi-band modes: allowing you to select one, two, or three bands for processing. Keep everything simple and together with a single band, break out your highs from your lows, or – if the situation calls for it – get an extra midrange band for maximum control!
