The 413 Tape Saturator reproduces the non-linear characteristics of an analog tape in “over-drive”. It plays with magnetic saturation : a phenomenon that occurs when you increase the amplitude of the ‘recorded’ signal. This plug-in offers 3 different types of Analog Tape, as well as 3 different types of distortion.
With this plug-in, the sound signal gets dynamically changed with saturation, especially high frequencies in response to their amplitude. The resulting effect simulates the saturation of an analog tape, in a controlled digital environment. This function can be adjusted according to your wants and needs.
The user can choose among 3 different types of Analog Tapes, each corresponding to the noise and saturation characteristics of 3 different well known tape brands.
3 distortion types are also available, enabling the user to produce the harmonic content and distortion one would get by over-driving certain Tube or Transistor circuits.
