In agreement with everyone who bigged up the Sonnox stuff, its lovingly put together and this comes out in the sound when used correctly.
Tube saturation is something where every plugin has failed.................... untill now.
WaveArts Tube Saturator.
I got this off the back of a review i read in tape-op, now people check this.
They started by designing their dream tube preamp (the schematic is included in the manual) They then built it (should appeal to us DIYers) They then proceeded to virtually model it, but where any other company would have modelled the whole device, they wrote an individual algorythm for each component (hence one instance at 24/96 uses about 80% of my CPU- quad core 2.6 4 gig ram!!!!!)
but you can hear where this power goes.
Make no mistake this is better than the real thing, better? why? Well it gives realistic tube warmth, without tube noise.
If you doubt me just try it, feel free to send me a mix and I will run it and sent it back.
