MIA Laboratories 413 Tape Saturator -
- Advanced Tape Saturation algorithm
- Tube, Transistor, and Soft Clipping Distortion
- Real tape-hiss
- 'IEC on NAB' playback equalization mode
The 413 Tape Saturator reproduces the non-linear characteristics that would result when overdriving analog tape, as magnetic saturation occurs with increasing amplitude of the 'recorded' signal. It offers 3 different types of Analog Tape, as well as 3 different types of distortion.
For the saturation process, the signal gets dynamically changed, especially high-frequency information, in response to its amplitude.
The resulting effect simulates the saturation of analog tape, in a controllable environment which can be adjusted according to your preference.
The user can choose among 3 different types of Analog Tape, 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/distortion one would get by overdriving certain Tube or Transistor circuits.
