Reaktor 6
Effect Distortion


Somewhat all these "tape saturation" plugins are way too subtle... At least when I'm listening to my old tape recordings, they do not sound smooth and warm, they sound rotten and filthy, they've got this athmosphere that I like but that I would not be able to recreate.
So I programmed a Reaktor ensemble that's bringing back some old vibe, all the way from well-behaved fattening up to honest, noisy shit.
The signal is enriched by adjustable colored noise and crackles, enters a saturation stage (adapted from Gabriel Mulzer's "nano tube" ensemble) and passes through a filter bank (adapted from my own "inFiltrator" ensemble). Stereo width can be adapted too, from mono to extra wide.
Have fun!

There are now 10 slots to store and retrieve filter curves. Also, you can now copy and paste filter curves even across snapshots.
