Shattered Glass Audio has released SGA1566 MkII, a virtual tube preamp effect for Windows and Mac.

Shattered Glas Audio SGA1566 MkII

SGA1566 MkII adds major processing and feature enhancements to SGA1566. At the heart of SGA1566 MkII is a single channel vintage tube preamplifier with added two-band active Baxandall EQ and stereo processing. To achieve an authentic analog sound, the preamp circuit is simulated in real time using the high performance circuit simulator.

The two-band Baxandall EQ can be positioned either before or after the preamp, or be completely taken out of the signal chain. Up to 8x oversampling can be used to eliminate aliasing. SGA1566 MkII offers two different filter types for use in oversampling. The SGA1566 is designed to add warmth to a track, as a saturation compressor, or to add “dirt” with tube overdrive.

SGA1566 MkII features

  • Authentic analog sound through real-time high-performance circuit simulation.
  • Preamp featuring two 12AX7 voltage amplification stages.
  • CPU friendly model of the circuit.
  • Three selectable CPU modes.
  • Two-band active Baxandall EQ that can be taken out of the signal path or placed either before or after the preamp.
  • Up to 8x oversampling with two choices of filtering.
  • Mono or stereo processing mode.

SGA1566 MkII (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $29.99 USD. The plug-in is free for those who donated $15 USD or more to Shattered Glass Audio before January 15th, 2015.

Plughugger has announced the release of Classic House Chords, a collection of 150 stabs and chords for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer plug-in by u-he.

Plughugger Classic House Chords

Classic House Chords is a collection focusing entirely on stab sounds for all genres of house: here are mellow Rhodes and sweaty organs for Deep House, classic Chicago-style minor stabs, old-school stabs from the days of Rave, modern chords for Progressive, Tech House and EDM – even laid back dubby chords for Dub & Reggae House.

With Classic House Chords we have utilized every aspect of Diva to get the right sound. Moog oscillators when complex chords are needed, Roland filters and envelopes for that instant classic sound, Korg filters when you need that extra energy, straight linear envelopes for a more modern sound and of course the new digital oscillator with its supersaws, feedback oscillators and FM capabilities.

The soundset is available for purchase for the introductory price of 9.90 EUR until February 15th, 2015 (regular 14.90 EUR). Use coupon code WELOVEHOUSE at checkout to take advantage of this offer.
