Digital wasteland

(23 customer reviews)


Digitalis is a multi-effect digital degradation and glitch tool. Inspired by bad converters, unearthed CDs, weak internet connections, and catastrophic errors, Digitalis is your personal vehicle through an endless digital wasteland.


Demos are fully featured, but have a brief (< 1 sec) sound drop-out every 45 seconds and cannot save custom user presets or PaintBox patterns. Settings are retained however, so if you decide to buy you can pick up right from where you left off!

    Beautiful and creative, very cool paintbox. But I hate cats! Please add a dog!

    Amazing work from Aberrant DSP – just got the demo with the intent of making a few stems. However, it took only a month before we realized that this product is truly capable of some amazing things beyond the $36 price tag. If you’re looking for something to experiment with that will blow you away, -please- download the trial version. It’s easy to make intriguing sound beds and warp samples (almost) beyond recognition to your benefit. An awesome example of smart engineering. Highly recommended!

    I hate leaving reviews. But my goodness, as a UI/UX designer and engineer… i am OBSESSED with this plugin I had to leave one. it’s great functionality and also dope user interactivity. hats off to you

  5. Boneless (verified owner)

    Digitalis along with Tectonic are the only plugins I would ever say are worth your money.
    I am absolutely amazed at not only how great these plugins sound, but how well Aberrant creates their UI. They aren’t only intuitive to use, but give you good sounds and vibes to no end. I can honestly say I love Aberrant, I wish you guys had more merch lmao

  6. Bailey Barnes (verified owner)

    This is one of the greatest plugins I’ve ever used. Been looking for something like this for a long time, I easily would’ve payed 100$+ for this.

  7. mortfell (verified owner)

    very fun and comprehensive for simulating digital artifacts, lots of unique features and great playful interface. Seems very stable and well coded as well.

  8. Peter D’Asaro (verified owner)

    holy ballz this plugin is actually insane…

  9. Gonzalo Argañaras (verified owner)

    loved it, really <3

  10. Abraham Osorio (verified owner)

    AberrantDSP… the greatest to ever do it.

  11. MU FAN CHEN (verified owner)

    simply the best.

  12. Alexander Kreitz (verified owner)

    Probably the greatest plugin ever made. I would pay full price just for the Data section, but then you also get an excellent bitcrusher and granular processor. Just buy it now. It’s an absolute steal. Put it on every track. Drown in the digital wash.

    this thing is insane, a very well thought out and user-friendly suite of delightful audio glitch effects… and super cheap at that. thanks for making this

  15. tmansanti (verified owner)

    The biggest bang for your bucks. This plug-in is a full suite of digital degradation delights and for the price, I didn’t think twice. The creative UI allows convenient access to familiar and nostalgic textures in a fun and usable way that no one else is doing.

  16. senormoku (verified owner)

    Pure magic and the possibilities are endless!

  17. vlush (verified owner)

    No words. My jaw dropped thirty seconds into demo’ing. Aberrant is elite.

  18. naiqvist willoughby (verified owner)

    Wonderful product! its a great way to add unique high-end presence to generally duller instruments like subs, kicks etc. It’ll destroy your sounds in the best way possible.
