Softube Plug-In Special

Softube LogoNew from Softube! Sick of your DAW's "default" plug-ins? Looking for something that injects that "magic" into your mix? Softube has the answer to your audio woes with a selection of plug-ins that have a special perk: When you purchase and register them between now and October 16th, you get a FREE FX plug-in (Spring Reverb, Tube Delay, or Acoustic Feedback)!

Softube Passive Active PackThe Passive Active Pack is a collection of three very different equalizers, each with its own character and quirks. The equalizers contain emulations of real workhorse equalizers, used on thousands of recordings from past to present.

The Passive Active Pack's Passive Equalizer is a three-band EQ with an unprecedented clear and open sound, a warm low end and sparkling top.

The Passive Active Pack's Active Equalizer is Passive's counterpart with three fully parametric bands and a tight and focused sound.

The Passive Active Pack's Focusing Equalizer is an untraditional take on the EQ concept where the low, mid and high bands move automatically and musically in relation to the high and low cut filters. It also features filters from the Passive and Active EQ's as well as an outstanding one-knob Saturation control.

Softube Trident A-RangeThe Trident A-Range plug-in from Softube is the first and only native and TDM plug-in that has been fully endorsed by original designer Malcolm Toft and Trident Audio. The plug-in is a model of a channel on one of the original 13 Trident A-Range consoles. Softube chose to model channel 15 from the console at Sweet Silence Studio 'B' in Denmark, producer Flemming Rasmussen's favorite channel for recording lead vocals. Flemming also used it for the solo and rhythm guitars on Metallica's "Ride The Lightning" and "Master of Puppets", and Ritchie Blackmore's guitar on the Rainbow albums "Difficult to Cure" and "Bent out of Shape."

The A-Range channel features four bands of equalization and high and low pass filters. The sound of the bands is often referred to as "colorful" and "musical." When running a hot enough signal through the original unit and boosting the bands, it is possible to get it to distort, the result is a hairy and effective saturation that is just right in some situations, and just wrong in others!

The Trident A-Range 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...

Softube Tube Tech ME1BThe Softube Tube-Tech ME 1B is Tube-Tech's unique take on the classic Pultec MEQ-5 midrange equalizer. There's a lot of mojo going on in the Pultec designs, but the biggest mojo of it is that it is so well-designed that almost whatever setting you use, it will sound good.

Just like the PE 1C Pultec equalizer, the Tube-Tech ME 1B is a passive, tube-based equalizer. I was designed to accompany the PE 1C equalizer, and provide control over the frequencies that the PE 1C cannot adjust. On its own it's a great tool to shape the mid- range of any audio material, and together with the PE 1C it becomes a versatile and full featured equalizer.

The focus of the PE 1C, "program equalizer," is the shelving filters and the mid-range boost. It cannot attenuate the mids, and you don't have the ability to get bell shaped filter curves in the lows and highs. The Tube-Tech ME 1B solves all these drawbacks of the PE 1C by offering the user three bands of equalization: low frequency boost (200-1000Hz), an almost full range sweepable cut (200-7000Hz) and a high frequency boost (1.5-5kHz).

Softube Tube Tech PE1CThe Softube Tube-Tech PE 1C is a passive, tube-based equalizer suitable for many different sources ranging from bass drums and guitars to vocals.

The equalizer features a Low Frequency section made up of two low shelf filters which can be combined to attenuate and boost at the same time. These filters are actually bit apart in frequency even if they are controlled by the same frequency selector. The High Frequency section has a peak and shelving filter working in parallel, which provides a smooth top end while not getting too bright.

The ability to combine the different filters and sections is what gives the Softube Tube-Tech PE 1C its characteristic sound and is something which plays a crucial part in explaining the classic Pultec sound. The Tube-Tech PE 1C plug-in by Softube captures every nuance of the hardware version. It has an extremely analog sound that is evident as soon as you start using it. Every aspect of this studio standard, 25 years in the making, is now finally available as a plug-in.

The Softube Passive Active Pack is currently available for only $149.99!
The Softube Trident A-Range is currently available for only $199.99!
The Softube Tube-Tech ME 1B is currently available for only $149.99!
The Softube Tube-Tech PE 1C is currently available for only $199.99!

Special Offer! - When you purchase and register these plug-ins between now and October 16th, you get a FREE FX plug-in (Spring Reverb, Tube Delay, or Acoustic Feedback)!
