Blue Cat Audio Destructor Explained® is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 5 .
Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from good tutorial good tutorial, but an amp sim (the main purpose) having a tutorial without a guitar DI is in a way disappointing. not for me, but for the people who do recording DI and is checking this video specifically for that. the explanation of the dynamics was useful though, but it could have gone further in that, as that's the core of the plugin too. I think this plugin deserves another video - be it "producing with XXX" or "advanced", etc. nice video overall.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from Helpful overview It's a good overview of BC's Destructor. Two things I think would make these videos better: 1) the product can obviously do a lot of stuff, that's why we love it, but its core is guitar distortion (as the name of the product and more than half of the presets imply), however, these videos spend very little time on using BCD shaping guitar tone; 2) I think the presenter could have spent more time preparing the examples he used. Quite frequently it seemed as if he was just moving knobs from 0 to 11, and sometimes the signal even clipped. Still, good intro to all the options and controls available in this super complex plugin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Not just a guitar amp sim!!! Blue Cat has something special with this plugin. Gate, compression, EQ, distortion/saturation... Fantastic displays and (from what i can tell) numberless metering!!! the Groove3/Blue Cat video series for this plugin is indispensable. 5 ++++ Stars to both Groove3 and Blue Cat.
