Ah ok ! :D
Thanx.

Thank you also for the link. That's the hardware I was thinking about. So why can't it work like a guitar pedal ? (No complaint, just trying to understand.)

The deucetone is a guitar pedal. It's covers all three variations of the RAT over the years.

I know ! :D
But in fact my question was : why the RATuration program can't be used as a guitar pedal ?
But now I guess I understand : I asked for a distortion and you answered that RATuration is more a saturation/overdrive program. So I've not been clear, sorry. In fact, I wasn't making a big difference between distortion and overdrive :oops: .
Because later on, I wrote I was looking for a gently overdrived and sometimes crunchier sound. So finally, I suppose the RATuration could do it ? Am I still wrong ?

My curiosity was piqued by this thread so I bought 'Raturation'.

In my view it doesn't work as a 'distortion unit' (which Eric has already said), but as a solo boost it imparts an appealing thick, middley tone. For myself, I can
see it getting some use for fattening up guitar solos .
Would have been interesting to play around with the filter controls and a sample of the turbo setting, mind you.

I used an overdrive patch from my Zoom g2.1u FX unit to go into the 'Raturation' program. I can post some samples if anyone is interested.

A question for developers, where do people think Nebula is 'at' regarding the sampling of analogue distortion units such as guitar overdrive pedals ? There's a big market in that area !

Wow full circle. :)
Then yes, if your wanting gentler overdriven sound in comparison to full on distortion, this can cover that.

@Formbank
Yes i'd love to hear your test examples.

need more kernels for proper heavy overdrive/distotion..at least 22 i believe from reading in this forum. Giancarlo was suggesting that microkernals might enable the use of more kernels.

Here's a quick noodle I did to show the Raturation program's effect on an
overdriven guitar sound. Chain is as follows:

guitar > Zoom G2.1u (overdrive patch that I'd programmed into it)
> Raturation program set to 16dB drive
> Ownhammer 'Mills12k_e906_1' cabinet (this library is really good!)
> Signaltonoize H35K 'Guitar room' reverb

Raturation bypass:

Raturation engaged:

Interesting program, I was looking at it's frequency response using the vst analyser program and it changes quite a bit dependent on its drive settings (presuming that I'm using the analyser correctly :))
