413 Tape Saturator reproduces the non-linear characteristics that can arise from excessive use of analog tape, including:
• Advanced tape saturation algorithm
• Lamp, transistor, and soft clipped distortion
• True tape hiss
• IEC and NAB equalization standards
The 413 Tape Saturator reproduces the non-linear characteristics that can occur when analog tape is overloaded, since magnetic saturation occurs with increasing amplitude of the “recorded” signal. It offers 3 different types of analog tape as well as 3 different types of distortion.
During saturation, the signal changes dynamically, especially high-frequency information, depending on its amplitude.
The resulting effect simulates the saturation of analog tape in a controlled environment, which can be adjusted to suit your preference.
The user can choose from 3 different types of analog tape, each of which matches the noise and saturation characteristics of 3 different well-known brands.
There are also 3 types of distortion available, allowing the user to create harmonics / distortion that can be obtained by overloading certain tube or transistor circuits.
