The Colourupter brings the unique mojo of XQP Audio’s Optical Disrupter to the Colour format. At the heart of the Colourupter’s sound is a classic optical compressor employed in a deviously non-traditional way: instead being converted to a DC control voltage, the audio signal is sent directly to the side chain. This “incorrect” implementation paired with the natural character of the optical element yields a soft, asymmetrical distortion that remains musical even at extreme gain settings.
- Optical element gently slopes waveform without hard clipping
- Emphasis on bass harmonics creates a larger-than-life low end
- Compatible with the Colour 500-Series Palette
