Innovative distortion algorithms unlike anything on the market to help you create the freshest sounds
‘Half Human’ producer Matt Nash – who recently aired his debut album of the same
name on Martin Garrix’s legendary STMPD RCRDS label – is proud to present his
brand-new distortion plug-in ‘DST ///.’ Creating a multi-band plug-in which is both easy
