SDRR - saturation chameleon
The four modes in SDRR:
The TUBE mode
consists of two different models of a two stage tube preamplifier. These two models can be blended into each other with the CHARACTER control. WARM focusses more on the transient smoothing and compressing character associated with tubes, while SIZZLE captures the harmonics generated, when driving the preamp without affecting the transients much.
The DIGI mode: designed to precisely add even and/or odd harmonics to program material. Gives a very controlled sound.
Again two models were created, which can be blended. The first one only generated the first 4 harmonics. DIGI is great for adding harmonics and excitement to your tracks without coloring the signal too much and might act as a proof, that digital saturation can sound pleasant. Use the BIT->RATE control for bit crushing/sample rate reduction effects. Combined with the DRIFT parameter it can get pretty wild!
The FUZZ mode: consists of two different models of classic germanium fuzz stomp boxes. Both are heavily modified for lower distortion levels to be suited even for mastering duties. The FUZZ mode takes advantage of the unique properties of germanium transistors and delivers a very warm, cosy sound.
THE DESK mode: Klanghelm's version of a flexible mixing desk channel strip plugin with just a few controls. It features a sophisticated 2 band EQ with special designed curves to fit most material. Furthermore it offers control over the transient response of the saturation and the compression. The aim of the DESK mode is to be the only plugin needed for an at least OK recorded track to shine - all with very few controls.
