The Colourupter brings the unique mojo of XQP Audio's Optical Disrupter to the Colour format. At the heart of the Colourupter's sound is a classic optical compressor employed in a deviously non-traditional way: instead being converted to a DC control voltage, the audio signal is sent directly to the side chain. This "incorrect" implementation paired with the natural character of the optical element yields a soft, asymmetrical distortion that remains musical even at extreme gain settings.

Features

  • Optical element gently slopes waveform without hard clipping
  • Emphasis on bass harmonics creates a larger-than-life low end
  • Compatible with the Colour 500-Series Palette
  • Full, step-by-step assembly instructions and guaranteed support

Real analog plugins.

Colour is a new format for analog audio gear designed for and by the DIY community. We took our favorite sounding analog circuits and put them on modules that are small, affordable, and swappable.

The Colour format consists of Colours and Palettes:

Colours are ultra-compact, pluggable analog circuit blocks that impart various types of analog color. Check out our ever-growing selection of Colours. Colours can be designed and released by anyone.

Palettes provide controls, power, and support circuitry for Colours. We currently offer the Colour 500 Palette and CP5 Mic Preamp with Colour.
