Redoptor is a high quality Vintage Tube Distortion emulator.
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 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 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
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
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.
