Devious Machines is one of those developers who seem hell-bent on us wasting our lives in front of a computer screen. Their plugins are usually complex and sophisticated proposals that offer a lot of options to producers, sound designers and anyone who likes to experiment with sound sources. And following the same pattern, last year they presented Infiltrator, a multi-effects plugin with 28 algorithms and an advanced modulation grid that, together with other included tools, allowed all kinds of bizarre sound adventures. Now, little more than a year later, infiltrator 2which is an evolution of the first version, greatly increasing its already extensive possibilities.
Devious Machines Infiltrator 2
From Devious Machines they want Infiltrator 2 to be “your new secret weapon” in production tasks. To do so, they have stretched their capabilities considerably. to get started almost doubling the number of algorithms, which now go from 28 to 54. Within those 54 processes there is almost everything, from 15 types of analog, digital and “special” filters (like a formant filter), passing through a new section of 14 spectral effects, gain and dynamic utilities, and even more common processes such as reverb, delay, phaser and all kinds of effects to make temporary games. An arsenal of processes that also allows to combine up to 10 effects in each instanceone for each of the available slots.
And although it might seem that what has been said would be enough for a multi-effects, the truth is that half of the concept is missing, which is basically a modulation grid on which all kinds of automation can be programmed and drawn for each of the 10 effect slots. It is worth mentioning that, in addition, Infiltrator 2 now has 2 simultaneous and synchronizable envelopes with each other, so the fun doubles at this point as well. And if all of the above seems little to you (I don’t think so), there is still on board a 32-step sequencer from which you can program the activation of each effect for each step, as well as a Macro section with 4 controls from which you can assign different parameters by controls and perform complex edits in real time. And if you like the presets, Infiltrator 2 includes over 1,500 presets.
