Description

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 circuits. 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 the D16 Group 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 pleasing distortion.

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 analog 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.

Parametric EQ

Redoptor has a full parametric equalizer with 4 controllable bands. This degree of EQ is rare in this type of device. Most typical amplifiers have a fixed graphical equalizer, 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.

Unique character

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 analog equivalent.

Guitarists will appreciate the quality of Redoptor. For them, the amplifier is indispensable. However, other instrumentalist and sound designers will also welcome the high quality distortion, rich harmonics and attitude which Redoptor brings to their sounds.

Use Redoptor on guitar, drum loops, arpeggiated sequences, synthetic or acoustic sounds and you’ll hear its warm, rich and truly unique character.
