RetroBand models several interaction aspects of gain stages and transformers. It generates IMD and crossover distortions present especially in Class A/B gain stages. RetroBand also features several forms of transient shaping.
RetroBand is a distortion unit at heart. It does warming, sharpening, roughing up, softening and smoothing – or all these combined. It may enrich sterile sound sources. Failing equipment can be easily simulated.
With some luck it makes things sound larger than life. The transient enhanced distortion models with mid-side stereo controls can change or revive a stereo image.
