Audio Damage brings Grind Distortion to iOS

More goodness from Audio Damage. Grind comes to iOS. Here are the details:

A true powerhouse of audio warfare, Grind puts the “damage” in Audio Damage. From subtle tube-style saturation to full-on mangled wavetable distortion, Grind is a Swiss Army Knife of sound design. This effect consists of three main blocks: wavetable lookup, in to algorithmic saturation/distortion/, and finally to a multi-mode filter with eleven different topologies, from your favorite four-pole lowpass ladder filter, to the 18dB screaming acid, to more subtle toolbox filters like notch. Driving it all is a tempo-synced LFO for rhythmic filtering and grinding.

Grind is code-identical to our VST/AU/AAX version, and can even load its presets. Take your favorite destruction plug on the road with you in this AudioUnits v3 version. Also includes a stand-alone app.


  • Input gain and gate
  • Wavetable lookup distortion module with LFO modulation over 15 wavetables, and control over window size and phase. This replaces the input sample with one chosen from the selected wavetable based on input level.
  • Algorithmic distortion module. Apply one of eleven different distortion/saturation algorithms to the signal, for everything from subtle tube-style harmonic saturation to full sine driver craziness.
  • Multi-mode filter with eleven different topologies, from popular vintage synth filters to studio carving tools. The filter frequency is an LFO modulation target, making this worth the price of admission for the filter alone.
  • Tempo-synced LFO. In an AUv3 host, Grind’s LFO automatically syncs to your host, and can provide rhythmic interest to virtually any track. Mod the filter, for timbral interest, or mod the wavetable, for the full Grind destructo-effect!
  • A mix control rounds out this easy-to-use, yet deceptively intense effect. Add a little or add it all, Grind is a multi-effect that will bring any sound to life.

Grind costs $4.99 on the app store now:

One thought on “Audio Damage brings Grind Distortion to iOS”

  1. Quite a nice sounding distortion for sounds that are already quite digital…not so good for accoustic instrument samples and stuff like that. Personally though, I really feel that in spite of all the great software availiable for ios, the price, the file system and unecessary, stupid barriers in terms of rendering to .wav, drag and drop…all the functionality you would expect from a portable device for music making that is lacking for no good reason, plus the yuppified attitude of the dime a dozen apple fanboi, smugly in the starbuck with the hairspray power quiff…I will leave apple behind and bite my thumb at the whole company, let them eat my dust while I race ahead, doing professional work on windows tablets and great android devices like oneplus 3t…all you really need is a semi-alright laptop or windows tablet with renoise and sunvox, some vstis..then a decent android device for G-stomper, sunvox and nanoloop on the go, on the fly, in the box…I also recommend a simple midi keyboard such as akai lpk25 and a great pad controller such as akai MPD218 or korg padkontrol…PHUQ IOS YO!! I break up with apple forever. You know what I’m saying? For 10,000 years until the pebbles grow into boulders lush with moss. I feel strongly about it. They brainwashed son.
