The C533 is a Mono Series Saturation Processor with three Colour Module slots, designed to process the sound with the use of Colour Modules adding subtle harmonics to the signal, similar to the harmonics added by the vintage studio equipment.

Each Saturation Colour Module stage has Drive/Trim circuit with 1:1 Ratio potentiometer. As a result, the colour module drive level increases while the output level remains the same.

-12dB Active Input Signal Attenuation feature reduces the input signal level without adding any extra noise usually associated with the passive input attenuators.

Each Colour Module stage has the Bypass Switch which allows the easy A/B operation. The LED indicates the active Saturation Module.

The Smart Tilt EQ
The C533 Smart Tilt EQ is a special type of the shelf EQ which can boost / cut the LF or HF using only one knob.

The Smart Tilt EQ is based around the passive EQ filter circuit.

Turn the knob right to increase the amount of HF while reducing the amount of the LH band.

Turn the knob to the left to emphasize the low end while reducing the amount of HF.

The Smart Tilt EQ has the MID DIP feature which attenuates the Mid Band by [email protected] greatly increasing the functionality of the EQ.

The EQ section can be bypassed for easy A/B comparison.

C533 | Series Saturation Colour Processor with TILT EQ

So if I'm buying 2 c533's do I get 2 modules at 99% off? Theres tons of modules so I'm just trying to figure out which to start with. Also what's the difference between the discrete saturation and line driver? Thx

Yes, each C533 can be purchased with -99% colour module. Line Driver is a transformer colour module and the Discrete Saturation is the germanium diodes saturation colour module.
