Klanghelm: SDRR - The saturation chameleon


Introducing SDRR

SDRR was build to satisfy almost all of your saturation desires. It provides a comprehensive set of controls to manipulate the
character of the saturation to make it fit exactly. SDRR offers four different main modes: TUBE, DIGI, FUZZ, DESK and reacts
dynamically to the input signal. Each mode has it's unique crosstalk behaviour, which can be switched of or exagerrated. A
unique RMS level difference metering mode makes level matching an easy task.

SDRR can be different things: a saturation, a compressor, an EQ, a bitcrusher, a subtle stereo widener, or simply add some
movement to your tracks with the DRIFT control. Add warmth, depth and character to your tracks with SDRR.

Don't forget to check out the free IVGI, which can be seen as the little brother of SDRR. It is based on the DESK mode in
SDRR. Since IVGI is comparable to SDRR qualitywise, CPU-consumption wise and regarding aliasing (or better the absence of
aliasing artifacts), it's a good way to also get an impression of how SDRR would perform on your system.

SDRR is available in the following formats (all included in one single license):
Windows: VST (32&64Bit), VST3 (32&64Bit), RTAS
Mac OSX: AU (32&64Bit), VST (32&64Bit), VST3 (32&64Bit), RTAS

The four modes in SDRR:

The TUBE mode consists of two different models of a 2 stage tube preamplifier. These two models can be blended into eachother with the
CHARACTER control. WARM focusses more on the transient smoothing and compressing character accociated with tubes, while SIZZLE
captures the harmonics generated, when driving the preamp without affecting the transients too much.

The DIGI mode: designed to precisely add even and/or odd harmonics to program material. Gives a very controlled sound. Again two models
were created, which can be blended. The first one only generated the first 4 harmonics. DIGI is great for adding harmonics and excitement to
yout tracks without colouring the signal too much and might act as a proof, that digital saturation can sound pleasent.
Use the BIT->RATE control for bitcrushing/samplerate reduction effects. Combined with the DRIFT parameter it can get pretty wild!

The FUZZ mode: consists of two different models of classic germanium fuzz stomp boxes. Both are heavily modified for lower distortion levels
to be suited even for mastering duties. The FUZZ mode takes advantage of the unique properties of germanium transistors and delivers a
very warm, cosy sound.

THE DESK mode: Klanghelm's version of a flexible mixing desk channel strip plugin with just a few controls. faetures a sophisticated 2 band
EQ with special designed curves to fit most material. Furthermore it offers control over the transient response of the saturation and the
compression. The aim of the DESK mode is to be the only plugin needed for an at least OK recorded track to shine - all with very few controls.

The Technical Stuff

Signal conversion in the ADA8200 takes place at either 44.1 or 48 kHz with 24-bit resolution. The ADAT inputs and outputs can be operated independently, as long as there is an identical wordclock signal. Frequency range is an ultra-wide 10 Hz - 24 kHz at a 48 kHz sampling rate.

The Ins and Outs

Connections are provided for balanced XLR and ¼" TRS, as well as unbalanced ¼" TS inputs. XLR line out connectors located on the rear panel provide either balanced or unbalanced connectivity. Digital I/O is handled via ADAT format TOSLINK optical sockets, which support up to 8 channels of data.

Value

You can trust all your digital ones and zeros to the ADA8200, at an ultra-affordable price that will amaze you. Order online or stop by your authorized BEHRINGER dealer today and expand your digital arsenal.

Important Compatibility Information

There is a known issue with the ADAT interface implementation of the MOTU 2408 audio interface that makes it incompatible with the ADA8000/ADA8200 under certain operating conditions. Users are advised to avoid the following configuration:

  • The MOTU 2408 is connected to a MOTU PCI-424 card and operating in PCI Mode under computer control
  • The ADA8000/ADA8200 SYNC option is set to SLAVE and the clock input is being supplied from the MOTU 2408
  • The optical output from the ADA8000 ADAT interface is connected to an ADAT input on the MOTU 2408

100% Class-A Topology
Discrete input, output and mix stages plus the complete audio path running in constant class-A mode are the basis for an exceptionally transparent, wide and open sounding EQ.


True Stereo Operation
As one of the few exceptions in the market, the xfilter processes both of its channels with just one set of controllers – a true stereo linked EQ.



Resonance High & Low Cut Filters
The shelving filters can be switched into high and low cut filters with an additional resonance peak. Not ordinary, but extremely useful.



Switchable Filter Quality
The quality of the peak filters can be switched from a wide to a narrow Q factor which remains independent from the setting of the gain controller.



Additional Passive High-Band
The beautiful sheen only passive filters can deliver... the xfilter has it all. An additional LC filter with shielded coils gives you the 'Passive Massage'.



Stepped Controllers
All potentiometers on the xfilter have 41 steps, which is a great help for recalling your previous sessions fast and precisely.



Computer-Selected Potentiometers
Every single dual and quad layer pot we buy is measured with custom computer routines, and only the good ones go into production. 



Special Low Tolerance Capacitors
The special series of film caps used for the xfilter performs twice as good as the industry standard in terms of component tolerance.



Ground Layer Shield
One of the four layers of both PCBs is a full copper plane which helps to reduce interferences caused by electric fields.
