This is the fifth addition to the HY-Plugins product lineup, and quite possibly the best one so far. I’m still a big fan of their multi-mode filter, as well as the excellent HY-Delay, however this little multi-band distortion plugin is a true gem and (to my knowledge, at least) the first 64-bit multi-band distortion on the freeware VST plugin market. If you can’t afford purchasing a paid alternative such as Squashit or FabFilter Saturn, you’ll find a more than capable substitute in the latest HY-Plugins freebie.
HY-MBDrive does pretty much everything right. The interface is nice and clean, the control parameters are straightforward and easy to use, the performance is optimized for a low CPU hit and, most importantly, the included distortion algorithms sound very good. On the left side of the GUI, you can define the the range of three frequency bands which can then be processed using the controls on the right. Each frequency band can be muted, soloed or bypassed, as well as panned, amplified and, of course, distorted. There are five distortion flavors to choose from (you can assign a different distortion algorithm for each band), ranging from purely digital bitcrushing to a nice and crunchy analog drive distortion.
It’s easy to forget how versatile a multi-band distortion effect such as HY-MBDrive can actually be. Apart from achieving basic distortion effects, you can use it to adjust the volume of different frequency bands, do subtle processing like bass or top end saturation, or even some mastering tasks such as forcing the bass frequencies in a mix to mono.
