"When I was racking up and patching in the Looptrotter Audio Monster for the first time I was expecting to be underwhelmed about a relatively unheard piece of gear. After getting orientated with the controls what I found couldn’t have been further from my expectations. The Monster is packed full of a wide range of sounds from colored and smooth to extreme and aggressive! First and foremost, it just is a good sounding box. Just by inserting it on to a source (especially a bus) with very light processing the Monster instantly brings out a warm sonic signature with a fantastic sense of depth one might equate to the sound of some recording consoles. Dialing up the compression and saturation really starts adding on the color and vibe which on the right source can transform sound in numerous pleasing ways. In the few days I have had the Monster it has rescued a pair of thin, lifeless sounding cymbals into something rich with harmonic content that was no longer harsh and brittle but smooth and controlled. In addition I have also loved it on my music bus which has taking my hybrid studio further into the analog world with a sound I didn’t think I would be able to achieve by just adding a single piece of gear to my workflow. The Monster also sounds great on synths that you want to beef up and add huge amounts of saturation to! By cranking the saturation circuit and adding the even harmonics by flipping on the 2nd boost you can transform a boring and sterile virtual instrument into something oozing character. I can’t wait to further explore the sonic possibilities of what the Monster has to offer, it has found a long term home in my studio!"
