Riverside is the culmination of a thorough analysis of numerous analog and vacuum tube circuits. Our goal? To deliver a new world of harmonically rich, incredibly versatile, tube-inspired drive sounds. We didn’t want to build just another distortion or overdrive. We knew we must examine what has been done, and bring a new approach to the world of drive sounds.
Custom cascading multistage distortion topology provides a wide range of tube-inspired drive tones Digitally controlled analog class A JFET input gain stage maximizes headroom while adding up to 20dB of pure analog gain Precision crafted DSP gain stages provide detailed complexity and responsiveness Low gain channel for smooth classic overdrive High gain channel for modern saturated distortion 3-band EQ with independent Bass, Middle and Treble controls Selectable post-analog gain mid-band EQ push Presence switch to tailor the sound for use with all amplifiers from dark to bright Optional variable-threshold noise reduction helps tame noisy guitar pickups
