A few years back, a guy called Chris Reed produced an absolutely superb fuzz plug in called Crunch;

http://www.manyetas.com/creed/crunch.html

Problem is, it's no longer available as Roland decided to 'close him down' Twisted Evil

Does anyone have any good suggestions as alternatives? AU's ONLY!

Crunch was either subtle or extreme, and sounded way better than any other distortion plug- like Logic's built in one.

I like Ohmforce's Predathom a lot. I wish I could get a stomp box version.

Thanks. I'll give that a go too. But what I really liked about Crunch, was that it wasn't particularly 'Phat' (I f**king hate that word! Evil or Very Mad Laughing ), it just broke the signal up a bit (with a little distortion)- and gave lots of presence. Crunch was my favourite fuzz plug Crying or Very sad

After playing with the camel for a while (no sex jokes please!), my conclusions were that it was a little smooth. The problem with decimators and bitcrushers is that they are too harsh. Logic's own overdrive is OKAY but it's drive is a bit tame.

Ohm thingy next- but it has too many knobs! Shocked Crunch only had 2 and it emulated a Boss pedal (why it don't exist no more- Roland sent the boys round Twisted Evil )

Sounds like you might appreciate the immediacy of Audio Damage's FuzzPlus2.

Oh yes I tried that too. I thought it was crap.

Crunch was so good, it's worth buying an old PPC Mac for!

So did you ever try Predithom, or did the complexity scare you off? I admit it is way harder to use than a fuzztone, but I still really like the sound.

Yes, and I still am using Predohm's plug. It's okay, but not great. Like all the plugs, they were either too harsh or too warm.

It's not complexity that I dislike, I just dislike too many controls, because then the plug becomes the centre of focus rather than the music.
