- Looptrotter SA2RATE
SA2RATE is equipped with the preemphasis and deemphasis circuits which significantly improve the processing of a signal with lots of low frequencies, especially drums and bass guitars. It’s also perfect for animating digital synthesizers, making them sound like old time analog synths. The reference point in working on SA2RATE was the saturation unit in Monster Compressor based on electron tubes. In SA2RATEwe managed to achieve the characteristic sound of electron tubes using the semiconductors technology.
SA2RATE is rid of wearing away electron tubes which in combination with the highest quality components guarantees long-term seamless operation.
SA2RATE is extremely easy to operate. Each of the channels has two knobs:
DRIVE – saturation depth
OUTPUT – output level
BOOST switch – amplifies the input level by 17 dB
The saturation depth (the amount of harmonics introduced) is indicated with two LED diodes, lighting up at 4 and 8% THD.
