Redoptor 2 – Improved Vintage Tube Distorsion From D16

D16 Group Audio Software has launched an entirely new version of their well acclaimed effect plug-in – Redoptor 2.

Redoptor 2, a Vintage Tube Distortion, is the second generation of D16’s first FX Plugin from the SilverLine Collection series.

The organic sound of a tube amplifier being pushed into breakup has been the gold standard for overdriven and distorted tones for as long as musicians have been intentionally distorting their signals.

The gentle natural compression and rich blend of even & odd harmonics produced by analog tube circuitry make any effected signal feel more powerful, punchy, and alive.

Unlike solid-state transistor and fuzz circuits which only produce odd harmonics and limit the incoming signal in an unnatural and unresponsive way, Redoptor 2 smoothly and dynamically responds to the changes in volume of incoming audio, just like a real tube amplifier.

Sound samples:

This means that louder sounds are saturated with more crunch and delicious harmonics, while softer and naturally decaying sounds clean up gradually. This creates a very sonically pleasing distortion.

Redoptor 2 comes with several new features improving user experience, which provides more control over the effect:

  • Preamp with built-in compressor
  • Output limiter
  • Fully equipped parametric equalizer with frequency ranges expanded in version 2
  • Tag based preset browser
  • Two alternative GUI sizes
  • MIDI-learn functionality throughout
  • AAX compatibility

Redoptor 2 is currently on sale for only €49! For more information, head on over to the Redoptor 2 website.
