Clon Minotaur Transparent Overdrive

Release version 1.0.2

“legendary transparent overdrive”

Clon Minotaur Transparent Overdrive is modelled on The Klon Centaur* a guitar overdrive pedal developed between 1990 and 1994. The Clon Minotaur is characterized as a "transparent" overdrive, meaning it adds gain to the signal without significantly altering the tone of the guitar.

Depending on the settings of the control knobs, the Clon Minotaur Transparent Overdrive can act mostly as a clean boost, adding mostly volume and minimal colouring to the sound. This can be used to drive the input valve stage of the virtual amplifier to use the characteristic distortion sound of an overdriven guitar amp.


Clon Minotaur Transparent Overdrive controls can be set to distort the sound signal in the plugin, where two modelled germanium diodes can perform waveform clipping.

The gain parameter controls the balance between the modelled diode clipping stage and the clean stage. The two signals are summed together before they interact with the other two controls, treble and volume.

Great subtle drive

Lovely plugin, especially for pushing up clean tones. It's incredible for getting the details a bit crispy.

Wow!!! Perfection!!!

I had a Centaur Klon (Horsie Tail, gold) and couldn't keep it at the INSANE ($5K) prices art was fetching.
I figured eventually somebody would capture its essence digitally, and man, Nembrini HAS ROPED in this WILD HORSIE Klon!
At this Price????

You're INSANE if you don't get it NOW!

I just have no owords other than a Big thanks to Nembrini for giving this gold to us for free. This totally brings my drums to professional sound with just one clic, plus it gives character and the possibility to change it in a very musically way, never destroying it. I love you guys,i just don't understand why is this so unknown.

Got the vibe

I really enjoy the sound of this plugin in guitar. It adds a gentle distortion and character that is not overly harsh.
