The D16 Group has announced that version 1.0 of Redoptor, a Vintage Tube Distortion emulator, is now available for Windows and Mac OS X.


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, according to D16 Group.

Exact circuit emulation
Redoptor has an adjustable tube bias parameter. This is designed to allow subtle amplification of even harmonics and gentle transient reshaping in the signal. Similarly, like a hardware tube distortion, Redoptor is designed to react dynamically to each change in the amplitude of the input signal. As a result, the amplitude of even harmonics is not constant in time.

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 parametric equaliser with 4 controllable bands. 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 a functioning stereo tube distortion with an independent path for each channel in the stereo signal. This is designed to allow each channel to have completely different harmonics and distortion added to it.

Features:
  • Exact tube and tube’s circuits emulation.
  • Crossfade between tube and transistor distortion.
  • Adjustable power of new harmonics.
  • Tunable preamp filters.
  • Fully equipped parametric equaliser.
  • Presets organised into groups.
  • MIDI learn function.
  • 64-bit internal processing.
  • Multi-mode distortion’s quality adjustment.

Pricing & Availability
Priced at €35, Redoptor is available now for Windows and Mac OS X in VST and AU plug-in formats.
It is also available in D16's SilverLine Collection and Total Bundle plug-in bundles.
