Antares Tube V1.0
Give your digital tracks a heavenly warmth. Or something a whole lot hotter. Whether you want to burnish your tracks to an angelic warmth or heat things up with some rich, devilish distortion, Antares's Tube plug-in gives you the tools to create a wide range of modeled analog tube effects.
Based on technology from Antares' multi-award-winning Microphone Modeler plug-in, Tube is incredibly easy to use and so DSP efficient that even a modest native system will support dozens of tracks' worth. (In informal tests, a Mac PowerBook G4 400MHz was able to provide well over 40 instances of Tube.) And with an astonishingly low price, you won't have to sell your soul to afford it.
Choose their heavenly blue tube to add the warmth of a classic tube preamp to vocals, acoustic guitar, horns, strings, synth pads, in fact pretty much anything. The Drive control lets you select the degree of dynamic saturation. Or engage OmniTube to add subtle body to the entire signal.
Give in to the temptation of the fiery orange tube and ignite your tracks with the deep, warm distortion of an overdriven tube amplifier. Use it in moderation to impart a subtle (or not-so-subtle) effect to almost any track. Or crank it up on electric guitar, bass, synths, even voice.
Tube is available now for RTAS (Mac and PC), VST (Mac and PC), MAS, and DirectX. Prepare to make that age-old choice: Good? Or even Better?
