The Pumpkin plugin uses saturation to host four different modes. Saturation gives the sound dimension, making it sound deeper and more intense, with the added bonus of built-in EQ to control and fine-tune the audio output. The modes are identified as Toupe, Violet, Crimson, and Gunmetal. While each mode brings something different to the table, the reviewer recommends trying out Toupe and Violet first.
Another aspect highlighted is the drive. This controls the saturation level and can drastically change the sound based on the amount of input. A high drive gives off a higher saturation, resulting in a deeper, richer sound.
The Pumpkin plugin further offers pre and post low and high shelf EQ. This allows the user to control the frequencies before and after the signal enters the saturation process. Achieve a perfect sound output by experimenting with these features and creating your desired sound.
The Acoustica Pumpkin is a free, but high-quality audio plugin making waves in the music production industry. For starters or professionals looking to switch things up a bit, the Pumpkin plugin is an excellent tool to consider.
