iZotope Revives Trash

US Distortion plugin gets new features, a free option, and iPad support      13/03/24

iZotope, now part of Native Instruments, has announced the revival of their iconic distortion plugin, Trash, which was first introduced back in 2003. They say that, two decades later, this new incarnation combines the most popular features with a modern design, and a whole new take on the joy of breaking things. Here's more details direct from the company...

Trash takes sound into new dimensions with unlimited ways to twist, mangle, and energize music. With an easy-to-use interface, the plugin is driven by two powerful engines: the Trash and Convolve modules. Trash's namesake module includes over 60 distortion types for everything from subtle saturation to full-on sonic mutation. Convolve comes with over 600 creative impulse responses to morph and filter your sound, from tin cans and piano cabinets, to reversed reverbs and underwater recordings.

In a new twist for Trash, both modules include an intuitive XY pad that allows users to blend between either four distortion algorithms, or four impulse responses, opening up endless potential for auditory chaos. Other new features include an Envelope Follower, a Dice Roll button for inspiration, and a Scream filter.  Plus, no matter how wild it gets, Trash takes care of output levels with intelligent autogain and limiter settings.

Available as a desktop plugin, Trash is also compatible with Logic Pro for iPad using the AUv3 format. Both the desktop and iPad versions of Trash also include a new Trash Lite mode, so that everyone can get a piece of the new Trash for free.

Key Features

  • Trash module – Distort your sound with over 60 distortion types and blend between four of them on an intuitive XY pad
