Default Hybrid rectifier possible in PSUD?

So I've checked the related posts suggested, nothing.

Yes. You have to edit or add the rectifier values for the particular valve you want to use. duncanamps.com :: View topic - Suggestion for PSUDII

Hi, the short answer would be no for the only reason that the format only stores one named rectifier against the bridge. If you used the Graetz bridge, you would need two types. Click the image to open in full size.

However.... You can simulate the effect of the Graetz bridge with PSUD2 by making a modified rectifier with a vfac parameter which is TWICE the normal value, and using an all tube bridge rectifier. This should get things pretty close.

An example of the 5AR4 modified for Graetz is at PSUD rectifier list

If you visit the link, you can download a new rectifier list.

Sorry, didn't notice the difference in Rlim at first.
