Behold: the REDDI Bass DI plugin, from A-Designs Digital by Kush.
Until now, REDDI has been a(n expensive) tone weapon used by professional session bass players worldwide, and is heard on countless records made in the past 12 years. Now, it’s magic is available to anyone with a DAW.
With an oversized power supply, tube gain circuit and beefy transformer, the sound of the REDDI hardware is unmistakably ‘classic’, a very forward, tight and punchy sound that drops bass straight into the pocket of dense mixes with less processing than usual.p>
The plugin faithfully captures that tight quality, then dramatically expands the tonal possibilities with a deceptively simple ‘Bass’ knob that drives the subs into distortion, yielding a tone that is thicker and heavier without making the b noticeably louder.
The plugin also adds a ‘+20dB Headroom’ switch which gives the REDDI an even mellower harmonic signature and allows for more subtle degrees of saturation. On electric guitar, synths, and rhodes, REDDI adds a lovely shimmer without any eq, a very useful tone shift accomplished strictly through its gentle and beautifully crafted harmonic series.
Best of all: no iLok dongle is required!
