Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959 (New)

There is perhaps no other amplifier more vital to the history of rock & roll than the Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959. Softube took Marshall’s own museum-piece Plexi (a pristine model from 1967) under extremely careful security and supervision and modelled each and every component to produce the most textured, detailed software version imaginable. At any setting, it responds exactly like the hardware, and it’s sensitive to your playing style like you wouldn’t believe.

American Class A (New)

Gut-busting drums. Crackling, searing, face-melting guitars. Meaty, punching bass. Rich, up-front vocals. Wide-open, airy, living electronics. If you will it, it is no dream with the American Class A. Based on the greatest classics of American mixing console hardware, this channel strip is fast and easy to work with, and brings a truckload of character to the party.

With a shape section featuring gate and transient designing, a stellar four-band EQ with proportional Q and range control, a fascinating compressor design which can be switched between feedback and feedforward operations, and a warm, crunchy output drive section, no modern studio is complete until this sonic option is at hand.

Using the range controls of the EQ to limit the gain boosting and cutting to a half or even a quarter of the starting values, it becomes a high-resolution mastering unit. And running a synth sound through these same hard-rocking controls can result in improved openness and vitality just as easily as an increased grunt.

Features​

  • Characteristic stepped EQ with proportional Q values. Gives bold boosts and clean cuts.
  • Unique compressor design, which can operate in feedback or feedforward topologies.
  • Shape section has both gate and transient shaper, with all the same tasty analogue sound of the strip’s circuitry.
  • Crunchy drive from the output stage, with controllable character.
  • A real and complete workhorse replacement for stock DAW mixing tools.

Monoment Bass (New)

In the modern-day, music production leans more heavily on bass than ever before. Although track counts can number a hundred or more, often the core of a song is built around little more than a beat, a vocal, and a rich, living bass sound.

So an instrument dedicated to just that – tailored to producing huge, solid bass tones with complex, organic overtones and focused effects for a mix-ready low end – is more than just useful. It’s foundational. Monoment Bass lays the groundwork for top-quality tracks every time.

All of the source material in Monoment Bass was recorded in stereo from high-end rare and boutique synths, giving huge, wide, and mood-defining sounds. Including a purpose-built multi-band compressor, and a spatialization tool for fine-tuning your stereo image, Monoment Bass has great-sounding effects, but more importantly, the right effects for the job.

Features

  • Super-high-quality bass synth with stereo source sounds from top-end boutique hardware.
  • Blend noise with two different sources at once for a textured and highly complex sound.
  • Professional presets from Madison Mars, Vandalism, Sample Tools by Cr2, WA production, Black Octopus, and Function Loops.
  • A heavy focus on modern bass sounds makes this the perfect addition to the forward-thinking studio.
  • Fills a soundstage with domineering weight and power, yet easy to mix thanks to dedicated effects.

It also includes novel features such as a fully automatable Shake control that will shake the virtual springs around for those thunderous spring effects. Get some recognizable character in your mix with the Spring Reverb!

It can add a lot of personality and character to a vocal track, a snare drum, percussion, an electric organ or just about anything. It's very much a sound of its own and it will help set your mix apart from the rest.

Features

  • Tension control to shape the spring character and reverb length.
  • The number of spring pairs are continuously adjustable from 1 to 3.
  • Tube driver simulation with Bass and Treble in the reverb section.
  • Shake control that shakes the springs around.
  • Can be used both as a send and an insert effect.
  • Very CPU friendly.

Learn more about Spring Reverb.

Acoustic Feedback (New)

Screaming guitar feedback in the box! Release your inner beast with the first realistic guitar feedback simulator on the market. Go from moderate and subtle to rampant and wild by the twist of a knob (or two). To break new musical ground, try inputting a synthesizer, a violin, or even your mother's grand piano.

One thing that is really hard to achieve with a guitar amplifier simulation plug-in or hardware is the interaction in a room between the guitar and an amplifier turned up loud. Enter Acoustic Feedback - because this plug-in does precisely that. Whether you just want single notes to keep hanging a little longer and gently fade to sustained feedback or you want instant and rampant howls for your noise rock, Acoustic Feedback is your friend.

Features

  • Realistic simulation (physical modelling) of guitar feedback.
  • Fully responsive to vibratos, bends, slides, tremolos etc
  • Simple user interface: Control amount of feedback with the Feedback knob, and the sensitivity with the Tolerance switch.
  • Compatible with MIDI foot controls

Learn more about Acoustic Feedback.

Passive-Active Pack (New)

The Passive-Active Pack is a collection of three very different equalizers, each with its own character and quirks. The Passive and Active equalizers emulate real workhorse units, used on thousands of recordings from past to present. The Focusing Equalizer combines these with analogue sounding saturation and a novel workflow.

Features

  • Inspiring, untraditional and very useful workflow.
  • Choose between Passive or Active EQ character.
  • Three-band EQ that automatically and musically changes with Low and High Cut.
  • Built-in one-knob saturation with metering and selectable saturation type.

Learn more about Passive-Active Pack.

Bass Amp Room

Bass Amp Room was designed to handle all your bass amp needs, from dirty rock to modern clean. It consists of a model of a bass amplifier, three distinctive speaker cabinets with click-and-drag mics, and a blendable DI section with tone controls and a limiter.

Bass Amp Room has got everything you need to create a unique signature sound in no time. It's well thought out, and the high-quality building blocks will help you produce a huge range of sounds. The Bass Amp Room is all about getting a sound you know you can trust, and getting it quickly.

Although it was originally designed as a guitar amp, the 70's amp that has been modelled has proven to be an excellent choice for bass players. A thick and solid preamp distortion without any fizziness lets you crank it up without losing the low end. The power amp has a more traditional power amp distortion (controlled by the Master Volume knob), which at extreme settings will give you all the dirt you can handle. The High/Low switch wasn't a part of the original amp, but was added to give you a cleaner and fatter sound when necessary.

Features

  • Authentic amp and cabinet modelling
  • One amplifier and three versatile and good-sounding cabinets
  • Flexible and continuous click-and-drag mic positioning
  • Slider control to blend in the DI sound from within the plug-in
  • Tone control, Low and High cut filters plus limiter in the DI section

Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor

Softube Drawmer S73 at Plugin Boutique

For the mastering engineer, a multi-band compressor is a powerful tool. But as Spiderman's uncle Ben famously says: with great power comes great responsibility. A multi-band compressor that is not used diligently may create more problems than it solves. This is why Softube created Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor (IMP).

Multiband Compression For Your Mix

Drawmer S73 features an enhanced multi-band compressor sound design, fine-tuned to improve your mix with a minimum of tweaking. The S73 does most of the job for you by making the choices a mastering engineer would make. Simply use the Style parameter to switch between ready-made mastering processing techniques to quickly find the sound that suits your mix the best.

Clarity and Definition 

Under the hood, the S73 is based on technology created by Drawmer for the 1973 Three Band FET Stereo Compressor. This is an award-winning multi-band analogue compressor design famous for its precision and flexibility. Softube has carefully modelled all the characteristics of the original analogue hardware, and have taken the concept a step further by adding mastering sound design to create the Drawmer S73 IMP. The unit offers the perfect way to balance and shape your mix and get great analogue sound in no time.

Features

  • Built-in mastering processing techniques
  • Lifts your mixes to the next level
  • Great Drawmer compressor analogue sound
  • Parallel compression

FET Compressor

The FET Compressor is an impressively faithful modelling of one of the most iconic compressors of all time. FET Compressor is loved for its aggressiveness and its tendency to add some tasty distortion to the sound source when driven hard. This compressor loves to be slammed and abused. But few things are so good they can't be improved, so Softube added a couple of nice features that make it even more flexible than the hardware original.

In general, the FET Compressor can be used for deeper gain reduction than you would normally use with any compressor. The reason is that even at extreme settings, the FET Compressor shows no trace of the pinched sound many other compressors make when you push them hard. This ability for strict gain control is not least useful on lead vocal tracks that need to be kept in the listener's face. The distortion also adds a nice grit to the voice, highly useable in rock mixes but in no way limited to that.

Another common use for the FET is in drum mixing, where many engineers use it on room microphones, overheads or across the entire drum bus. Used this way, the FET Compressor has a way of bringing out a large, explosive sound in the Led Zeppelin vein. This is also an application where parallel compression is a useful technique, so Softube added the Parallel Inject control to facilitate this. To reduce kick drum pumping or let the bass guitar's low-end bloom, use the side chain filter.

But there are still many more uses for the FET. Bass, acoustic guitars, pianos - bring out some edge or use the compressor's fastest attack setting to round off any transients.

Features

  • Sweet input and output stage distortion.
  • Superfast attack time (just like the original)
  • Lookahead (in case you don't find the original's attack time fast enough)
  • Modelled "All buttons in" mode
  • Continuous ratio (even between 20:1 and ALL) - but if you want the fixed ratios of the original, just click the ratio labels around the knob.
  • Parallel compression.
  • Detector low and high cut filters.
  • External side chain.
  • Stereo with synchronized gain reduction.
  • Very CPU friendly.
  • Meticulously modelled analogue compressor. Every single stage of the analogue unit has been modelled separately to achieve the exact sound and behaviour of the original analogue unit

Fix Flanger & Doubler

From the mind of legendary audio equipment designer Paul Wolff comes the new Fix Flanger and Fix Doubler. They take the legacy and sound of classic flanging and vocal doubling of the 1960s, but with all the benefits of the digital world.

In 1979, Paul Wolff formalized a vision which was turned into exclusive limited edition hardware, that became loved among musicians and sound engineers. In 2015, the Fix Flanger and Doubler is the reincarnation of this vision - a plug-in package that handles hands-on flanging with unique stereo widening methods, as well as vocal doubling with lush chorus and rich textures.

Classic Flanging Reimagined 

The Fix Flanger is versatility personified—this flanger is capable of both classic guitar pedal style flanging with an automatically swept flange as well as direct interaction in the manual mode. A VSO mode features unprecedented hands-on control with emulated servo motor bounce and true cross zero flanging, just like a tape machine. Added features such as tap tempo sweep, unique stereo widening methods and selectable delay polarity makes the Fix Flanger the swiss army knife of flangers.

Doubling Made Simple 

The Fix Doubler delivers texture and extraordinary richness to vocals and polyphonic instruments. The algorithms of the Fix Flanger, combined with a streamlined interface and Paul Wolff's unique Auto Double algorithm, makes it easier than ever to get lush chorus and rich layers to your vocal track. With Auto Double, you can get smooth doubling without flanging at delays as low as 3 ms, which no one has ever been able to do before.

Features

  • Fix Flanger delivers the sound of classic flanging, with extreme control and flexibility
  • Unprecedented hands-on VSO flange control, with servo motor bounce emulation
  • Fix Doubler provides lush chorus and rich textures to your vocals
  • 'Auto Double' uses a unique method of accurate phase-cancellation to make a natural-sounding doubler effect
  • No USB iLok key required

Learn more about Fix Flanger and Doubler.

Fix Phaser

No single phaser could please Paul Wolff. He wanted them all in one. All the stages, the sweeps, the tones. From the mind of Paul Wolff, here is the Fix Phaser.

Have you ever worried that your guitar just doesn't sound enough like a spaceship? Coming from the ever-fertile mind of audio legend Paul Wolff, Fix Phaser perfectly covers this concern and many others too. Create subtle movement and texture in a string section or synth pad, wash a drum kit in stratospheric swirling attitude, create a throbbing, oscillating vibrato in a vocal, or simply swoosh and whoosh things to your heart's content.

Features

  • Lush vintage phasing sound in a modern plugin package.
  • Wide and versatile feature set.
  • Mix knob allows blending of wet and dry signals to taste.
  • Create stereo soundscapes out of mono sources.
  • Generate subtle movement in flat or dull-sounding instruments.
  • Out-of-this-world whooshing effects.

Learn more about Fix Phaser.

Harmonics

Did you ever try to give a track attitude by adding distortion, but then wind up with a washed-out, lifeless sound instead? Harmonics, with its never-before-heard approach to dynamics in distortion, is the answer.

Guitars, vocals, drums, bass, even synths often need some extra grunt to push them over the edge, but distortion can destroy dynamics and cause more problems than it solves. Too little and your sound doesn’t cut through and fill its space. Too much and you lose the light and shade, the attack and decay. Transients blend into tails, and detail and definition go out the window.

But with Harmonics, you get much more than just five awesome-sounding analogue distortion models. You also get a revolutionary new approach to handling dynamics during the process of distorting the sound. The input signal is listened to and analysed by the plug-in, allowing the dynamics and detail to be preserved and enhanced even after heavy distortion is applied.

Add to that the fact that Harmonics has five totally different-sounding component-modelled distortion styles, high and low cut filters, a mix knob and more, and you end up with a very powerful secret weapon indeed.

Features

  • Five genuinely different component-modelled distortion sounds
  • Revolutionary ‘Dynamic Transient Control’ technology
  • ‘Amount’ knob to control the amount of saturation
  • ‘Character’ knob controls the tone or colour of the distortion
  • High and low cut filters can be placed before or after distortion
  • Wet/dry blend knob for parallel processing
  • THD meter allows fine control of subtle saturation

Heartbeat

Classic drum synthesis is back with a vengeance! Flexible and tweakable—Heartbeat is your source for familiar, yet unique, drum machine sounds. Use the built-in effects and the innovative Auto Layer Machine to take your beats to unexpected places. Or use Heartbeat's instrument and EQ modules in Modular. 

The Synthesis Engine 

While Heartbeat draws inspiration from the best analogue drum synths from the 1980s, it does not emulate any existing drum machine. The sound mostly originates from Softube's own modelled analogue synthesis, which has been augmented with carefully selected waveforms.

The core of Heartbeat consists of the eight instrument channels. You will find two different bass drum channels, which can be as punchy and deep as you want them but are also perfectly capable of producing snappy and hard-hitting woody textures. The two dedicated snare drum channels have six parameters each which allow you to achieve anything from edgy rimshots, soft and whispery snare rolls to machine-like claps.

Features

  • Eight channels of drum sounds, mostly based on modelled analogue synthesis.
  • Mixer with volume, EQ, effect sends and panning for each channel.
  • Four-channel Auto Layer Machine for layering sounds or triggering beat patterns.
  • Chaos slider adds randomness to the behaviour of Auto Layer Machine.

Learn more about Heartbeat.

Modular

Created in close collaboration with Doepfer, Softube Modular gives you both the sound, flexibility and expandability of a true analogue modular synthesizer. But Softube Modular is more than just another virtual synthesizer plug-in - it's an entirely new modular synth standard.

Infinitely Expandable 

As a Modular owner, the basic system gives you a great toolkit to start out with. It includes six modelled Doepfer modules and over 20 utility modules. But there is much more to discover. Additional modules from quality Eurorack vendors - starting with a range of units from cutting-edge manufacturer Intellijel - are available for separate purchase. More modules will continuously be made available. Owners of Softube's drum synth Heartbeat can add its instrument and EQ modules to Modular and combine them with any other modules. Softube's award-winning engineering team have modelled each analogue module, component by component, and the resulting plug-ins are sonically indistinguishable from their hardware counterparts.

To beginners, a modular synthesizer can be daunting at first. But Modular offers a wide range of expertly designed presets, immediately available to be put to use in your music. When you are ready to learn more about patching a Eurorack synth, the manual offers step by step patching tutorials that go hand in hand with the included tutorial presets.

Features

  • Modular is a cross-platform modular synthesizer plug-in standard, which features authorized emulations of modules from well-known hardware Eurorack brands.
  • True dynamic circuit-emulation—looks, functions and sounds like its hardware counterparts.
  • Basic system contains six Doepfer modules (A-110-1 VCO, A-108 VCF, A-132-3 Dual VCA, A-140 ADSR, A-118 Noise/Random, A-147 VCLFO).
  • Basic system also contains over 20 Utility modules (such as MIDI to CV/gate, mixers, slew, sample & hold, switches, multiples, delay, offset, sequencers, clock dividers, logic and signal tools, as well as a Polyphonic MIDI to CV/gate module).
  • Additional authorized emulations from Intellijel is available as add-ons (uFold II, Korgasmatron II, Rubicon). Many more modules from other quality hardware Eurorack vendors to be released.

Parallels

In Stockholm, Sweden, there’s a synth emporium like no other – a store with such vibrancy, such range, such colour, that you’d need a dozen eyes and ears to take it all in. And the guy who runs it is no ordinary guy. He’s special, in all the best ways. His imagination fizzes and crackles with delight at the sounds of a million billion sparkling circuit boards.

Out of this hotbed, this toy-box, this fantasy-factory, Parallels was born; an instrument with not one but two sound sources, each running painstakingly recorded and exquisitely calibrated multi-waveforms from every dream-machine must-have synth you could ever want, and sculpting the resulting sounds with the highest-quality Softube filters, modulators, and effects. If you’re looking for inspiration and sheer sound quality in your music, this is your golden ticket.

There are many possible approaches to take in creating a brand new instrument. Parallels focuses on two main things. First, it should always sound fantastic, with a minimum of fuss. And second, it should inspire the artist with elegant workflow, superb layout and visual feedback, and a sense of endless possibility.

Features

  • A plug-in soft-synth with dual wave scanning source sections
  • Almost a hundred high-quality pre-recorded multi-waveforms
  • Sonic progression within each waveform means near-infinite source-material
  • Two parallel sources mean blended sounds, opening up exponentially more possibilities
  • Up to fourteen voices (seven per source when both sources are active)
  • Hundreds of expertly-created preset from world-leading synth artists, engineers, and sound designers, including Brian Transeau a.k.a. BT, Richard Devine, Inhalt, and more.
  • Three analogue-modelled filter types (state-variable, vactrol LPG, and resonant peaks)
  • Five sophisticated types of modulation source; LFO, random, Euclidian sequencer, step sequencer, and envelope
  • Five top-quality effects options; distortion, chorus, flanger, delay, and reverb

Learn more about Parallels.

Saturation Knob

Saturation Knob is a modelled output distortion that can be used anywhere you need some grit. Use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy your drum loop.

The three modes, Keep High, Neutral and Keep Low give you three kinds of characters of distortion. If you want to squash a drum loop but keep the bass drum fairly intact, you can, for example, use the Keep Low mode.

Summit Audio EQF-100 Full Range Equalizer

The Summit Audio EQF-100 Full Range Passive Tube Equalizer really sets the standard for all passive equalizer designs. It is a highly versatile and sweet sounding equalizer that will solve most of the tonality issues you may experience in a mix. The EQF-100 is equally suitable for separate tracks as across subgroups or the entire stereo buss.

Flexibility and smoothness are the key features of this tube-driven passive equalizer. Here's finally an equalizer you can use in your DAW to boost frequencies and not limit yourself to cutting. Four fully parametric bands of equalization plus low and high cut filters with three selectable cutoff frequencies each make the EQF-100 a go-to equalizer for any sound or instrument in your mix. A mix that no doubt will sound warmer and fatter with the help of the EQF-100 and its unique blend of tube and solid-state technology. If you want more edge from your EQ, just drive the output meter into the red and you'll experience a woody and thick saturation coming from the output stage.

Features

  • Smooth sound and flexible operation.
  • Modelled output stage distortion.
  • Four fully parametric bands of equalisation with fixed frequency bands.
  • High and low filters can be switched from bell to shelf.
  • Three-position low and high cut filters.
  • Each and every component carefully modelled.

Summit Audio Grand Channel

Combining the smooth operating EQF-100 parametric passive equalizer with the mild but authoritative TLA-100A compressor, Summit Audio Grand Channel is a highly versatile channel strip that will cover a large part of your mixing needs.

The Grand Channel combines the warm and smooth tone sculpting Summit Audio EQF-100 Full Range Equalizer with the rich sounding and dead-easy-to-use Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor. Having the two combined in a single plug-in makes adjustments easier, as you will often find that the compressor affects the equalizer and vice versa. By default, the sound reaches the equalizer before the compressor, but you can easily reverse the order with a single switch.

When the EQF-100 and TLA-100A were designed, Summit Audio made sure to combine the finest of what vintage tube designs had to offer with a modern sense of how these units should stand the test of time. The result was remarkable, and today you can experience the Summit Audio grandeur in digital form, just reach for the Grand Channel! As a modern addition to the classic TLA-100A, the plug-in also includes Parallel Compression, Saturation Control and Low Cut Filtering on input or detector.

Features

  • Flexible and easy to use with a huge sonic range.
  • Individual bypass for each of the two units saves CPU power.
  • Change the order of the equalizer and compressor with a single switch.
  • Each and every component carefully modelled.
  • Extremely analogue behaviour of frequencies, phase, distortion, attack, release, etc.

Learn more about Summit Audio Grand Channel.

Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor

This classic compressor is all about gentle and natural sounding gain reduction. It effortlessly keeps your material's dynamics controlled without ever strangling the sound. Everything you put into the TLA-100A comes out the other end big and compact sounding.

The Summit Audio TLA-100A works in a program dependent manner, meaning it does a lot of the thinking for you. It's tremendously easy to use and basically impossible to make it sound bad. It will, however, give you some soft and warm distortion if you drive it really hard. For ease of use, Softubes TLA-100A plug-in has a Saturation knob that the original unit lacks. This lets you blend in just the right amount of distortion to your signal.

The TLA-100A shows the same basic behaviour on any type of material. Its transparency and strong but gentle grab of the sound source makes it a popular choice for placing vocals and bass just where they need to be in the mix. The TLA-100A is also well suited for tasks like softening a spiky acoustic guitar that demands too much attention or providing some 'glue' on a drum bus or a full mix.

Features

  • Controls your audio dynamics with mild authority.
  • Easy to use.
  • Built-in parallel compression and detector filtering (Low Cut filter switchable to signal input).
  • Each and every component carefully modelled.
  • Modelled output distortion, easily controlled with the Saturation knob.
  • Extremely analogue behaviour of frequencies, phase, distortion, attack, release, etc.
  • Softube makes the only Summit Audio plug-ins.

Tape

Time to get reel! Softube's Tape plug-in adds cohesion and weight to your mixes. But Tape goes far beyond your average tape machine emulation. It includes three distinctly different tape machine types, and it offers the ease of use and low CPU strain that today's music creators rightfully expect. 

Even in this day and age, it's common practice for computer-based professional studios to run their mixes through at least one generation of analogue tape. Why? Because even when used subtly, analogue tape has a smoothing effect and adds cohesion and weight to a mix—it takes the recording from a collection of individual tracks into a song where everything is connected and works together. With Softube's Tape plug-in, you can have all that and more.

Features

  • Realistic analogue tape sound.
  • Three tape machine types included.
  • Easy to use.
  • Low CPU usage.
  • Includes Tape Multitrack which can be used in the MixFX slot of Presonus Studio One—adding individual channel crosstalk and single interface control of all tracks.

Learn more about Tape.

Transient Shaper

Being able to control the attack and decay of a sound is tremendously useful for anyone mixing music. But Softube's Transient Shaper goes beyond that due to the fact that it's a dual-band processor. This means that the user can set it to affect only the treble or bass portion of a sound—separately for the Sustain and Punch parameters—and leave the rest untouched. This opens up a new realm of possibilities.

Transient shaping has become a vital technique in music mixing. The ability to sharpen or soften the onset of a sound, as well as lengthen or shorten the decay, has proven very useful for giving each sound just the right size and position in the mix. Transient Shaper takes this concept one step further, by letting the user affect either the entire frequency range—as most similar tools—or only the treble frequencies or bass frequencies.

Features

  • Dual-band transient processing tool.
  • Add or reduce punch and/or sustain from any sound.
  • Affect either the whole frequency spectrum, only the high frequencies or only the low frequencies.
  • User-selectable crossover frequency.
  • Clip section adds output distortion.

Learn more about Transient Shaper.

Trident A-Range

The Trident A-Range equalizer is a legendary piece of equipment. As only thirteen A-Range consoles were ever made, it remains a holy grail for sound engineers and producers around the world that hope to create works of art equal to those that were originally recorded on the A-Range - David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust, Queen, Elton John, the list goes on...

It is sometimes said that one of the disadvantages of digital mixing and recording is that the happy accidents one could experience with analogue gear just don't happen in the DAW. People saying that clearly haven't tried Softube's Trident A-Range equalizer.

Because the Trident A-Range is not only a tremendously nice sounding and highly characteristic equalizer. Its four frequency bands also have a way of integrating with sometimes rather unpredictable ways. More often than not you will find that the equalizer ends up giving you something even better than you may have expected when you made a certain setting. In this sense, the Trident A-Range is more of a musical instrument than a strictly scientific tool. Softube think this is one of the major reasons it has been used on so many great classic rock albums and why it's still one of the most coveted pieces of audio equipment around.

Features

  • EQ with a will of its own.
  • Created together with original designer Professor Malcolm Toft.
  • Each and every component carefully modelled.
  • Saturation control.
  • Very CPU friendly.

TSAR-1 Reverb

The TSAR-1 Reverb is not an emulation. It's not a stock design. It's not a static snapshot of a space. The TSAR-1 is a powerful, modern reverb algorithm. It's alive and vibrant, it's gentle and dreamy, and above all - it's natural and believable. The TSAR-1 is the better-sounding alternative to the established, traditional reverb products. At a fraction of the price.

The True Stereo Algorithm inside the TSAR-1 is what gives it its magic. The strength lies in its sophisticated sound and versatility, no matter whether it's used on strings and brass or rock drums and lead vocals, it always shines. All this while still having a comprehensive and easy-to-use interface that is unparallelled in other high-end reverb products.

Features

  • True Stereo Algorithm.
  • Extraordinary versatility.
  • Comprehensive user interface.
  • Modern and powerful high-end reverb.
  • Extensive preset library.
  • Predelay as a rhythmic effect or to carefully match the tail with the early reflections.
  • Time Longer or shorter reverb tail. Where do you want to go today?
  • Density Smooth, modern and dense, or sparse, lush and vintage.

TSAR-1R Reverb

TSAR-1R Reverb is the little sibling of the more adjustable TSAR-1 Reverb. They share exactly the same high-end reverb algorithm, but TSAR-1R offers extreme ease of use for a fast and intuitive workflow.

Essentially, TSAR-1R is operated with a single control - the Time slider. Add depth and dimension to any sound with short and controlled room sounds, or slide it up towards hall settings for large, dramatic spaces. It really is as easy as that, and it always sounds stellar.

Features

  • Pre-delay - Perfect for getting that small gap between the vocals and the reverb tail.
  • Time - One fader to rule them all. Time control changes the Density, Diffusion, Early Reflections, Reverb Time, etc. Almost like a continuous swipe through all the best presets. 
  • Colour - Need a bright or a dark reverb?
  • True Stereo Algorithm - Same as in TSAR-1 Reverb.
  • Extremely easy to use.
  • Modern and powerful high-end Reverb.

Fast and easy, yet powerful. Apart from Mix and Volume, there are only three parameters in TSAR-1R. Don't let that fool you though, it has never before been this easy to dial in a great reverb sound.

Vintage Amp Room

Straightforward and simple, Vintage Amp Room emulates three great and classic guitar amps in a complete studio set-up with speaker cabinets and fully flexible microphone positioning. It's easy to use for live performances and recordings, as well as for re-amping and last-minute tweaking.

The three guitar amplifiers Softube simulated in Vintage Amp Room are timeless classics that have deserved their place in the history of guitar-based music. So instead of simulating tons of amps, Softube set out to get these three done right instead.

The amps are simulated in a true studio environment with fully flexible click-and-drag microphone positioning. So not only did Softube simulate the sound of guitar amps in a nice studio, they simulated the entire workflow.

Vintage Amp Room has none of the added gadgets or weird-sounding presets sometimes found in amp simulation software. It provides you with the ultimate tool to create your own guitar sound. Because after all, only you know exactly what sound you want.

Features

  • Three great-sounding vintage amp models.
  • Raw & authentic sound.
  • Real studio workflow.
  • Flexible & continuous click-and-drag mic positioning.
  • Fully automatable parameters.
  • 3-D rendered photo-realistic user interface.
  • Compatible with all effects that work with real amps.

Tube Delay

A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modelled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slap backs, or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.

A slightly dark and distorted delay has a way of giving a great sense of space and size to a mix without really drawing attention to itself. So that's where Softube's Tube Delay gets in the picture.

The controls are quite self-explanatory, but it's the sound that sets Tube Delay apart from any other delay you have tried. The drive knobs add a wonderfully dirty distortion and the tone controls are just sweet. There's actually three different tube stages in this model, each adding to the total sound. The tone controls are passive and add further to the distortion. Turn up the feedback while running, and you'll have the authentic dub echo madness! Softube of course added the possibility of tempo syncing the delay to your song.

Features

  • 1-1000 ms delay
  • Sync tempo to host
  • Vintage style passive EQ
  • Gritty feedback feature
  • Tube preamp simulation
