Looptrotter SAT 500 is a single channel module in 500 format fitted with a saturation circuit, which adds low order harmonics and smoothly evens the signal, all in an amazingly musical and ear friendly way. It can significantly increase the RMS level. The sound refers to old tube mixing consoles and tape recorders.

Looptrotter SAT 500 is equipped with unique solutions shaping the content of harmonics in the processed signal.

The LO SAFE option turns on the pre-emphasis and de-emphasis circuit, “preventing” the lowest frequencies from distortion. This option is specifically useful in case of instruments with high content of low frequencies, like bass guitar, kick drum, group of drums or the whole mix.

The BAND SPLIT option divides the signal band into two frequency ranges. This solution allows to saturate only the low frequencies, below the division point. High frequencies above the division point are mixed with the saturated signal in an unaltered form. This option is perfect for “thickening” the sound of instruments, without the audible saturation of high frequencies. There are three frequencies of division point to choose from – 800Hz, 2kHz and 6kHz.

The depth of saturation is smoothly controlled with the DRIVE knob. SAT 500 features an independent control over DRY and WET signal.

The depth of saturation (the amount of added harmonics) is indicated by two LEDs, lighting up at 4 and 8% THD.

Looptrotter Sa2rate

The new version of the Looptrotter SA2RATE is extended with a BOOST function, which amplifies the input level by 17 dB. Thanks to this option SA2RATE can directly cooperate with devices having a nominal output level of -10 dB, such as synthesizers, samplers, drum machines etc. It can also be directly inserted into effects loop in guitar amplifiers.

Simultaneously SA2RATE is equipped with a balanced output with nominal level of +4 dBu and can serve as in instrumental preamplifier.

With an input signal level of about +4 dBu the BOOST function allows extreme saturation and signal distortion, which significantly widens the sound scape available through SA2RATE.

Looptrotter SA2RATE is yet another fully original design by LOOPTROTTER. It’s a result of many years of search and research on harmonic distortion and sound processing. SA2RATE will allow you to animate your mixes and introduce the characteristic, fat, analog sound into the digital world of recording and sound processing.

SA2RATE refers to the sound of old tube mixing consoles and tape recorders. It can smoothly even the signal and intelligently introduce the low order harmonics. It also serves as an analog soft limiter. It’s capable of increasing the level of RMS significantly in a very musical and ear friendly way.

With SA2RATE you can create solid and fat sound of instruments just during recording process. It also allows you to process already recorded tracks and subgroups during mixing. SA2RATE is fitted with perfectly paired channels which makes it applicable in mastering as well.
