Audio Damage released the next version of their discord stereo pitch shifter plugin, the new version is called DISCORD4. I did play around with it today and can report that the new UI makes sense and that the sound you get from this plugin is a good as expected from the fourth version of DISCORD, just with a better Interface.


DISCORD4 is available for new customers at $59 (USD) and for qualifying customer at $10 (USD) for an upgrade.

Discord UI

Features according to Audio Damage:

  • Pitch Shifting: Discord4 contains a pair of shifters with three separate algorithms (Vintage, Clean, and Granular) for different styles of pitch shifting.
  • Buffer Size Control: The P1 (Vintage) and P2 (Clean) algorithms have a Buffer Size control, from 32 to 2048 samples, for fine-tuning the pitch shifting effect.
  • Delay: Tempo-synced or free-running delays with feedback, cross-feedback, and a sophisticated bandpass filter.
  • Reverb: A simple stereo reverb is added to the feedback path, for “shimmer” effects and further sound exploration.
  • Modulation: Two of our new FLFO (Flexible Low-Frequency Oscillator) with tempo sync and an arbitrary waveform, capable of a nearly infinite number of modulation shapes using only three controls.
  • True Stereo Operation: Discord4 has a true stereo signal path, with entirely independent control over each side, finishing with panorama settings for stereo width.
  • MIDI Note Control: Six octaves of pitch-shifting can be controlled with MIDI note input.
  • All-New GUI: Vector-based resizable user interface.
  • Presets: Cross-platform XML-based preset manager.
