Tanhx

Tanhx – award winning saturator/soft clipper/fattening device.

From subtle analogue peak limiting to serious nicely colored crest-factor reduction.
The only processing you need in a chain, 75% you don’t need any EQing after this. Just great on drums, synths, guitars (very tubey!), just everything!

 

Tanhx soft-clipping/harmonic generation is very dynamic, it reacts differently to fast and slow level changes, to incoming sound spectral balance, so it sounds very alive and organic, completely not like a basic diode clippers or overdrive pedals.

It is specially designed to add the effects of an old analog console channel in a modern workflows, and make it good without occupying lot of space.

• 3 modes of harmonics/symmetry:
– almost symmetric, odd harmonics prevail (push-pull amp/tape-style),
– subtly asymmetric, odd and even harmonics balanced (class A amps, old discrete consoles..),
– asymmetric, even harmonics at full (like an old tube amp)

• 6dB boost for more grit

• Emphasis: cutting lows before harmonics generating stage, then boosting it after.
Low freqs has less soft-clipping, very useful for a drums buss or a drum machine with a strong bass drum.

• Cold bypass

• RGB LED indicator: shows signal present and how clipped/saturated it is – from cold to hot colors.


Tanhx is a stereo unit, powered by USB with any PSU/charger and basic USB-B cable.

Demos
I’ve always thought it would be great to hear a device demo using my own instruments, or sound samples/sequences/whatever.
So, here we go — now you can send me an audio you want to run through an amp, and i’ll send you back it already treated, on different modes, with comments. Isn’t it great?
