Redoptor is a high quality Vintage Tube Distortion
The popularity of tube distortion units are as a
result of their superiority over the solid-state fuzz
distortions which are based on transistor clipper
Tubes produce even and odd harmonics and naturally
compress the signal. Transistors produce only odd
harmonics and limit the sound.
In ordinary fuzz, when a signal goes over the
threshold level it goes through the clipper circuit.
As the signal volume falls back below the threshold
(as the sound reaches its release stage), the
harmonics added by clipping suddenly disappear. If
the volume of a signal oscillates above and below the
threshold, the clipping harmonics will appear and
disappear with the signal level. This sounds
unnatural and is unpleasant to listen to.
This does not happen in Redoptor. As the sound source
falls in volume in its release phase, the harmonics
(which were created by the sound being initially
above the clipper threshold), gently disappear with
the original sound. This creates a very sonically
Exact circuit emulation
Redoptor has an adjustable tube bias parameter. This
allows subtle amplification of even harmonics and
gentle transient reshaping in the signal. Similarly,
like a hardware tube distortion, Redoptor reacts
dynamically to each change in the amplitude of the
input signal. As a result, the amplitude of even
harmonics is not constant in time.
Redoptor has a very precisely modeled tube distortion
module. The emulation doesn.t just focus on the
characteristics of the tube part of the circuit; it
also models the rest of the circuits co-functioning
with the tube within the distortion unit to capture
all the subtleties. and dynamics of proper high
-quality analogue tube distortion.
Completely adjustable preamp
In a typical guitar amplifier, the preamp is usually
fixed. In Redoptor it is not. Redoptor allows the
cut-off point for low and high tones to be set before
the signal is amplified.
Redoptor has a full parametric equaliser with 4
controllable bands. This degree of EQ is rare in this
type of device. Most typical amplifiers have a fixed
graphical equaliser, with 3 or 4 bands and only allow
gain of the signal in each band.
Independent stereo channel processing
Redoptor is not just for guitarists - who usually
only require a mono signal path for distortion.
Redoptor is a fully functioning stereo tube
distortion with an independent path for each channel
in the stereo signal. This allows each channel to
have completely different harmonics and distortion
added to it. Try doing this with synth sounds . the
timbre will sound much more defined.
Thanks to the perfect emulation of the electronic
circuits within the various guitar amplifiers used to
design and create Redoptor, Redoptor sounds as good
as its real-world analogue equivalent.
Guitarists will appreciate the quality of Redoptor.
For them, the amplifier is indispensible.
However, other instrumentalist and sound designers
will also welcome the high quality distortion, rich
harmonics and attitude which Redoptor brings to their
Use Redoptor on guitar, drum loops, arpeggiated
sequences, synthetic or acoustic sounds and you.ll
hear its warm, rich and truly unique character.
