Redoptor von der D16 Group grenzt sich von vielen Mitbewerbern, die ebenfalls Emulationen von Röhren-Preamps anbieten [...] In Kombination mit anderen Effekten kann Redoptor hier sogar eine ausgewachsene Amp/Speaker-Simulation ersetzen beziehungsweise eine Alternative dazu darstellen.
All our testing can be summed up quickly: the SilverLine series is outstanding and unique in sound quality. - you might have realized this by our kind of passionate writing as well. [...] your production will get a lot more precious character with these - in fact, thatâs all SilverLine is about: giving a special touch to the sound, not being just another standard plugin series.
As I come to expect from d16, Redoptor is a very high-quality tube distortion plug-in. It is capable of wearing different 'sound masks.' It can give digital instruments a vintage, older-quality sound. It can be pleasant, warm and clean one minute, yet it can distort your audio material like there's no tomorrow. One thing I learned in processing loops is that it is sometimes good to apply a bit of saturation or subtle distortion to make them 'jump-right-out-of-the-speakers'. Redoptor fits perfectly for this job because it imparts a good tube sound - giving new life to older drum and percussion loops. The results can be satistfying with this trick. And trust me, Redoptor is up to the task.
Der charakteristische, obertonreiche Klang analoger Röhrenverzerrer wird von Redoptor überzeugend nachgebildet, wobei das Plug-in wie seine Hardware-Vorbilder dynamisch auf Amplitudenänderungen des Eingangssignals reagiert. Redoptor ist eine hervorragend klingende Geheimwafe, um verschiedenste Signale mit Obertönen anzureichern oder subtil bis brachial zu verzerren.
Silver Line effects and processors stand out from the crowd of vintage emulations. D16 appear to be less interested in your classic Neves and Pultecs, and more in the design quirks and technological limitations that gave older electronic instruments their individual qualities [...] These plug-ins offer something that is authentically 'vintage' yet also rather different from the bulk of what's out there.
In short, Redoptor sounds excellent on all manner of signals, and seems to offer a smoother transition from clean to distorted than many plug-ins of this type. [...] As far as guitars go, if you're not quite satisfied with the valve tones of your current software, you could buy Redoptor to use in conjunction with it, as a preamp.
D16 have clearly done their homework and have made sure that there is something unique about their approach to separate them from other takes on the same sorts of plug-ins. The differences are usually subtle ones, but they're ones that go a long way towards making the effects sound as good as they do. [...] If you're looking for a variety of ways to distort your audio with a very organic, hardware-type sound, this suite should be in your collection. Period.
