Character can run as either a Native or AAX DSP plug-in in Pro Tools 10 and one license lets you run both.  Character uses a complementary gain amplifier for the Drive control; this means that as you turn the Drive up to get more harmonic distortion, the gain is automatically lowered by the same amount after the model. This allows you to change the tonal quality without changing the ouput level. Since Character fully supports Pro Tools' automation, you can record changes in the Drive level to create dramatic changes in your audio’s timbre without having to ride the output level as well.  There are many ways to use Character; insert it on several tracks and “mix and match” model types to create a virtual analog console, use one of the “soft saturation” models on your master bus to get that analog tape “gooeyiness”, or use it as an automated effect for sound design.

Character allows you to completely adjust the effective analog signal path with just 3 simple controls:

  • Drive: Controlsthe gain of the signal feeding the Character model, so that you can boost orcut the input to the model by ±24 dB.
  • Output Gain:Tailors the final output level by ±24 dB.
  • Character Model: Allows you to select from the available circuit models:
    • Transformer: Jensen transformer-coupled input.
    • Valve: A tube-based EQ input stage.
