Discrete Saturation is simple and effective way to get the Tone similar to sound produced by Vintage Recording Consoles.
Silicon and Germanium NOS transistors plus combination of Silicon and Germanium Diodes is the secret of the Discrete Saturation Colour Module.
The audible distortion threshold point is set rather high providing the headroom which is very useful when module is used for recording.
At lower and medium drive setting Discrete Saturation will introduce compression like effect similar to diode bridge compressor.
It makes the signal sound “fatter” in a subtle way focusing on mids and reducing high frequency content.
If driven harder the signal clipping will become audible but not harsh or aggressive.
Discrete Saturation is perfect for recording and mastering.
