Triton Audio D2O

Triton Audio D2O

Our D2O returns as an audio plugin. We went all out and used AI to capture the soul and nuances of the original D2O. The plugin offers everything from warmth to full blown saturation. A versatile tool for all sources that surpasses the original hardware limitations.

In 2012, we unveiled the D2O Microphone Preamp. With its unique blend of solid-state electronics and subminiature tubes, the D2O offered a versatile sonic palette that appealed to musicians and engineers. Availability of parts and manufacturing costs became an issue, so we stopped producing the D2O after a decade.

Today our D2O preamp returns as an audio plugin. This isn't just another plugin. We've harnessed neural networks with artificial intelligence to capture the soul and nuances of the D2O, marking a departure from traditional circuit modelling. Our approach offers a rich, authentic sound, supplemented with modern features such as tilt EQ, high-pass filter (HPF), and mix control - enhancements the original hardware couldn't offer.

What sets this plugin apart is its ability to navigate the sonic extremes - from gentle warmth to aggressive saturation - making it a versatile tool for enhancing a wide range of sources, including vocals, guitars, drums, and even the mix bus. Operating in real-time on the CPU, this plugin redefines the digital audio landscape, granting producers and engineers the power to infuse their projects with the D2O's legendary warmth without hardware constraints.

In use
Lower gain settings can be used to achieve warm sounds. When pushing the gain knob, saturation will increase. Saturation can be tamed with the mix knob. If more saturation is desired you can turn up the input knob and turn down the output knob. This way you can drive the D2O much harder for more saturation. Use the high pass filter and tilt eq to finetune your signal. For instance most electric guitars will benefit from a little high pass filtering.
