Gems Sculptube

Distortion by Overloud

Bring Tubes in our DAW

Sculptube is a processor dedicated to adding valve-produced harmonics to sounds.

It creates an authentic tube coloration which goes from slightly warmed-up tones to heavy distortions.

  • Hyper-realistic simulation of tube warming/distortion, thanks to the 4th generation DSP technology
  • Triode and Pentode simulation
  • Tube biasing control
  • Built-in EQ and parallel processing to sculpt the tone
  • Low CPU usage: more than 1500 instances on a Macbook Pro Retina
  • Multilevel undo-redo
  • A/B Comparison
  • Scribble Strips: take notes anywhere on the plugin panel
  • Meter Calibration: calibrate the VU meters at 4 different sensibilities

Three Tones in One Processor

The Overloud Sculptube is an incredibly versatile tool to build a wide variety of analog tones.

Warm-Up: With mild Drive settings you can recreate an authentic analog colouration to individual tracks or mixes.

Distort: The: Sculptube can be used to overdrive the input and recreate different kind of tube distortions, including Triode and Pentode curves.

Excite: Thanks to its built-in eq and parallel processor, it can be used to revive the tracks by adding natural harmonics in the high-end.

The Magic of Tube Biasing

The Bias knob controls the amount of current through the tubes.

  • At low current the tubes are under-biased and the sound is inclined to be thinner and break up easily.
  • At medium current settings the Sculptube distorts least, and this is the typical setting for just warming up a sound.
  • At high current the tubes are over-fed and the tone becomes quite fat and harmonically rich.

3 Tube Configurations at your Fingertips

There are 3 settings for the type of distortion:

  • Program 0 (Triode) creates the typical musical effect found with triode valves, with very rich 2nd harmonic distortion, good for warming up a sound.
  • Program 1 (Pentode) creates a Pentode distortion, with prevailing odd harmonics, which makes the sound more aggressive while retaining that valve character.
  • Program 2 (Special) is obtained with a pretty unusual way of configuring the valve, which gives an extra octave at higher bias settings.
