“The flip side of this is that if you do want obvious coloration and retro raunch, these plug‑ins offer it in spades. Of the three, it’s the FD1N ‘British Edition’ that generates the blowsiest, most blown-out saturation when pushed. FD2N tends towards a more rounded, squashier tone, whilst FD3N is typically brighter and more ‘clipped’ in its presentation.” Sound On Sound

FEATURES

INPUT & DRIVER

This part was innovated by using the Vintage Marinair input Transformer*. The driver is adding a very subtle and pleasing harmonic distortion to the signal. This ends up boosting the harmonics above the normal range you expect to hear which creates a sense of fullness. When an entire song has each track featuring this warmth, you get an extremely full sound.

The FD1N is a colourful 2-band TUBE EQ and Saturation plug-in as the FD2N and FD3N. its unique sonic quality and EQ curves the FD1N is great for adding warmth and capable of light overdrive to full-on drive, and sounds great on guitars, vocals, bass, drums and more.


Tubes : EZ80 rectifier valve, EF86 high gain valve.

*The Marinair Transformer has special sonic characteristic and harmonic distortion so you can quickly colour your sound with warmth and detail.

FULLNESS TUBE EQs

FD1N
Warm sound

Tube EQ has a reputation for a warm sound produced by the introduction of even-order- harmonic distortion. Even-and odd-order harmonics are related to the overtone series that gives instruments their particular timbre. FDN series can emulate several types of guitar amplifiers and shape the overdrive sound.

FD2N
Even and odd harmonics

Even- order harmonics produce smooth, musical characteristics as opposed to odd- order harmonics, which tend to sound harsh. FD1/2/3N ‘ tend to introduce some degree of even-order harmonic distortion that produces a “warming” effect by thickening the overtones of the original signal.

Harmonics

Even harmonics are some number of octaves above the original note. Examples (for A at 440 Hz)2nd harmonic:  880 Hz — up one octave 4th harmonic:  1760 Hz — up two octaves The 3rd odd harmonic is an octave plus a fifth above the fundamental.3rd harmonic:  1320 Hz — E above the A at 880 Hz.
