WNAMM09: Tube Harmonics And Saturation Modelled


SPL launched their new Analog Code plug-in line at the last AES with the Transient Designer and the Ranger set of EQs. Now the German company has added the third plug-in with the release of the TwinTube at the NAMM show. All Analog Code plug-ins are modeled after analog hardware processors, and in this case the TwinTube processor of SPL's RackPack modular system has been the paragon.
Employing two separate, independent tube stages, the TwinTube combines the two main tube artifacts: harmonics and saturation effects. TwinTube's harmonic processing can be applied to four different fundamental tone frequency bands to improve presence and clarity without raising signal levels significantly. The saturation control can be compared to the sound effects of tape saturation to add warmth and achieve more density with virtually any kind of sound source.
SPL's CEO Hermann Gier, told us, "Our programmers did a great job in creating a very good sounding tube simulation. The special qualities of the analog TwinTube are in enhancing in fact nearly any signal with the classic analog sound attributes. Now we can fully transfer those amazing results to the digital domain. And where could the warm, transparent and smooth sound of analog tube and coil filtering make more sense than in DAW productions?"
The TwinTube is available as native and TDM version. The native version supports RTAS, VST and AU formats, the TDM license also includes all native formats.
