Dizztroy Dizztroy is a bitcrush / overdrive / distortion plugin which is made for soft and heavy audiodistortion. It is perfect to blow up your drumloops or leadsynths, making badass hardcore kicks, or completely destroy your signal, to sound like a broken fm radio.

It contains a bitcrusher, decimator, 8 overdrive / distortion algorithms,  a waveshape distortion, 2 envelope followers for overdrive and distortion, a highpass filter and to round up the perfect dizztroying machine a filter with 5 filtertypes.

All FX can be placed to your preferred position in the signal chain easily via drag and drop.

One of the big deals what Dizztroy offers to you is that you can draw the waveshape of the distortion by yourself, with the smooth button you can round off your envelope step by step to shape the perfect distortion, after shaping you can save  the shape to one of the 4 snapshots or to your harddrive, if you destroyed the perfect waveshape by mistake just undo up to 10 steps.
