The Character models can be applied to any input, bus or output. The saturation models have a more noticeable effect and are commonly used on mix buses, while many of the other models are subtle and should be applied to inputs across a mix. There are no hard and fast rules as to how they should be used.

Here are descriptions of the devices that were modeled:

• Transformer: Applies the harmonic distortion signature of a transformer-coupled input.
• Valve: A tube-based EQ input stage.
• FET: Model of a solid state (transistor) front end.
• Soft Sat: Tube-based EQ with saturation.
• Boutique Tube: Hand-made tube mic pre.
• American Transformer 1: A variation of the "Transformer" model.
• American Transformer 2: Second variation of the "Transformer" model.
• California Tube Mic: American designed tube mic pre.
• California Tube Line: American designed tube line input.
• Modern Tube DI: Mastering quality tube DI.
• Modern Tube EQ: Mastering quality EQ.
• Modern Tube Soft Sat: Mastering quality EQ with saturation.
• Modern Tube LG: A tube mic pre with a low gain setting.
• Modern Tube MG: A tube mic pre with a medium gain setting.
• Modern Tube HG: A tube mic pre with a high gain setting.
• Modern Tube Sym: Mastering quality EQ
• Modern Tube Soft Sat: Mastering quality tube mic pre with saturation.
• Classic British Mic Pre: A favorite large console mic pre.
• American Solid State: FET mastering EQ.
• California Vocal Box: Transformer coupled tube vocal processor.
• California Vocal Box Drive: Transformer coupled tube vocal processor with increased gain.
