Redoptor is a quality Vintage Tube Distortion emulator. Tubes produce even and odd harmonics and naturally compress the signal. Transistors produce only odd harmonics and limit the sound. 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. 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 full parametric equaliser with 4 controllable bands. 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.
