Distortion plug-n for Pro Tools AAX systems.

When Metric Halo released the 2d card and MIO Console v.5 for their interfaces, they introduced a new feature called Character. To create Character they asked their beta testers to send them their favorite analog processing devices; the mic pres, DIs and EQs that they used for recording, mixing and mastering. Then they used SpectraFoo to measure the ways that these processors changed the sound run through them, in particular the way the analog circuits add distortion. Then Metric Halo modeled this distortion using their +DSP technology.

Metric Halo has now unleashed this technology as the Character plug-in for AAX and AU. Character provides over 20 different models, incorporating the sound of tubes, transformers and solid state devices. Character also adds a Drive control to allow you to push the distortion even harder for over-the-top sound mangling.
