Product Description

A 500 series coloring box to add character, saturation and filters along with a stereo mix matrix!

Discrete Class-A Topology

The input and output stages as well as the complete audio path are fully discrete designs running in constant class-A mode. The result: Signal coloration, high-end style.

Mastering-Grade Saturation

In this mode, the karacter 500 generates gentle Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) with a soft characteristic curve, resulting in very musical symmetrical clipping.

Tube-Inspired Distortion

In FET Shred mode, the behavior of the karacter 500 changes drastically. The sound instantly reminds of tube amplifiers, with a wide range of asymmetrical distortion.

Glorious Destruction

Now, this is pushing the envelope. The Turbo Boost shifts the operating point of the distortion circuit in FET shred mode and generates even more asymmetrical wave forms.

Color Filter

The Color control changes the harmonics-frequency relation with tons of interesting variations. Middle is flat; turn left for more dub and right for more shred.

Integrated M/S Matrix

As an alternative to standard stereo operation you can process the mid and side signals, opening up completely new options for your work!

Dual Mono/Stereo Link

For ultimate flexibility, the karacter 500 offers both true dual mono and linked stereo operation, while in M/S mode the channels can be linked or unlinked as well.

Stepped Controllers

All potentiometers of the karacter 500 have 41 steps, which is a great help for recalling your previous sessions fast and precisely.
