You’ve never heard anything like this. Huge-sounding tube saturation which makes any vocal or instrument jump out of the speakers. From delicate to aggressive analog brilliance, BB Tubes makes your mixes sound expensive and brings your music to life.
You’ve probably heard the sound of tube saturation before. Sure, a little drive from an analog-modeled plugin can go far in making instruments and vocals sound full and cut through the mix.
It’s the beauty and beast of saturation plugins.
- BEAUTY is perfect for delicate harmonic saturation, where you just want to make a sound blossom before it breaks up. You’ll hear an instant roundness, fatness and glow with this knob, and an unmistakably huge low-mid.
- BEAST gives you that immediate in-your-face energy, attitude and aggression, all the way to crunch distortion. Even when fully broken up, the sound feels tight and controlled, without collapsing into muddiness. There’s also an A/B switch to select between two different tube types
Once you start using BB Tubes on your drums, vocals, guitars, bass, synths, mix bus and absolutely everything, it’s hard to go back. Incredible tones are simple to dial in without overthinking, and parts will simply feel “finished” in the mix far quicker than before.
BB Tubes will also give you incredibly LOUD mixes. The soft clipping of the tubes brings down transient peak levels, while dramatically increasing perceived loudness. You’ll get a much louder mix before it starts digital clipping.
You also have options for a pre and post hi-shelf EQ, transformer in/out, bass relief – which removes the low frequencies from the side-chain input, a sensitivity control – which lets you choose the point at which you hit the tubes, a dry/wet knob and output gain.
