Redoptor 2 – High-Quality Vintage Tube Distortion Effect

The organic sound of a tube amplifier being pushed into breakup has been the gold standard for overdriven and distorted tones for as long as musicians have been intentionally distorting their signals. Redoptor perfectly emulates the behaviour of classic hot-rodded tube guitar amplifier circuits, allowing it to sound just as good as its real-world analogue ancestors. Guitarists working in the digital realm will feel perfectly at home with Redoptor.


  • Exact Circuit Emulation – In addition to its spot-on modelling of hot vacuum tubes being pushed into glorious, creamy distortion, Redoptor packs several features that allow it to accurately mimic the behaviour of a complex analogue circuit with all its interactive and complementary components.
  • Completely Adjustable Preamp – Redoptor expands on classic tube guitar amplifier circuit design by offering total control of the preamp’s frequency range. This allows each side to have completely different harmonics and distortion added to it.
  • 64bit internal processing – Synth sounds, for example, can benefit from enhanced definition and stereo imaging in addition to the analogue feel offered by the tube distortion emulation.
  • Parametric EQ – While many typical amplifiers and emulations rely on a fixed graphical equalizer offering limited control, Redoptor features a powerful parametric equalizer with independent gain and frequency control of 4 bands.
  • Dynamics Under Control – A built-in pre- Gain compressor module and master output limiter provide even more freedom to sculpt the perfect saturated sound.
  • Independent Stereo Channel Processing – Although based on the mono signal paths of vintage guitar amplifiers, Redoptor is a fully functioning stereo tube distortion with an independent path for each channel in the stereo signal.
  • Tag-based preset browser
  • Two alternative GUI sizes
  • MIDI-learn functionality throughout
