CD Sound Master releases Vintage Tube Collection & Tube Booster

CDSoundMaster has announced the release Vintage Tube Collection and Tube Booster, two new tube effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

CDSoundMaster Vintage Tube Collection & Tube Booster
Vintage Tube Collection & Tube Booster effect plugins powered by Acustica Audio’s Nebula.

With the Vintage Tube Collection, everyone can afford to be a collector of rare vintage vacuum tubes. Included are prized tubes from Mullard, Amperex, Brimar, and Radiotechnique. There are a total of nine different tube programs in this collection.

CDSoundMaster states that “most modern producers have not had a lot of hands-on time with expensive, vintage tube gear, so their experience in the software market has largely been with overly-distorted, fake sounding tube drive. As a result, their expectations of what real tubes are supposed to sound like are anywhere from fizzy and distorted, to saggy and lacking in dimension. What we are doing is providing the real sound without overemphasizing the qualities. We actually built the hardware device to play the tubes. The result is the tube’s behavior at all volumes, also known as dynamic range, the frequency spectrum, and the harmonic distortion.”

The Tube Booster plug-in allows the user to add higher gain natural tube harmonic saturation. This is a process that has been emulated in many forms over the years, but because of its subjectivity, it is often implemented poorly and over-emphasized.

CDSoundMaster states that “… our technology allows us to recreate the purity of the analog signal with great detail, and in multiple dimensions.” This technology, called V.V.K.T., or Vectorial Volterra Kernels Technology, has been developed by Acustica Audio over many years, and CDSoundMaster has maintained close ties as beta tester and official 3rd Party Developer.

CDSoundMaster’s attention to detail does not end at the excellent sonic capabilities of these plug-ins, but they have also designed some of the most realistic Graphic Interfaces to date. Even more amazing is that these GUI’s, created by Vincent at GravityLinks, are completely unique to the software, and were designed from scratch.

The Vintage Tube Collection and Tube Booster for Windows and Mac (VST) are available to purchase for $79 USD and $49 USD respectively.

Cupwise releases Tube FM 1, 2 & 3 libraries for Nebula

Cupwise Tube FM

Cupwise has released three Tube FM libraries for Acustica Audio Nebula.

The sound characteristics of 4 table-top tube radios and 2 tube tuners were captured to be reproduced through Nebula. Sampled at 96khz.

These radios date to the 1950s. Two different FM transmitters were used, to get the signal into the radios. In some cases though, instead of transmitting the signal, it was directly injected into the radios’ circuitry. The tuners have RCA outputs which were used, but the table-top radios don’t. For those, the signal was taken from the speaker leads, after they were disconnected from the speakers.

Tube FM libraries for Nebula

  • Tube FM 1 – Four table-top tube radios. Two tube tuners. Two FM transmitters. Direct outputs.
    In all cases, the signal used to sample the radios was taken from them by a direct electrical connection. This means the speakers were bypassed. This provides the cleanest method of capturing the characteristic behavior of the radio’s circuitry. Each radio leaves a unique fingerprint on any audio ran through it, and these ‘colors’ were captured for use with Nebula.
  • Tube FM 2 – The same radios/tuners were used as with Tube FM 1, but this time their sound was captured with microphones. The overall sound is distinctive, yet each effect is different.
  • Tube FM 3 – Vintage Reverb – Custom reverbs made using tube radios, to add a vintage touch.

Tube FM 1 and 2 are available to purchase for $16 USD each; Tube FM 3 is $15 USD. Some free demo programs can be downloaded from the product pages.

CD Sound Master releases Q8 444X EQ/Console Combo for Nebula Pro

CD Sound Master Q8

CD Sound Master has released the Q8 444X EQ/Console Combo, a library of programs for Acustica Audio Nebula Pro.

This vintage hardware with remarkable sound is inspired by one of the most perfectly preserved and rare pieces of audio history; an original Quad-Eight Electronics Film Console EQ/Mic/Line/Pre! To appreciate the sound, think everything from early film scores to Motown, to Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”.

The “Q8″ represents the apex in the Electrodyne, Quad-Eight Electronics, Sphere Console, Western Electric legacy.

Q8 for Nebula features

  • 36 programs in “EQ” and “PRE” sub-categories.
  • Sampled at 96kHz and are tested to retain accuracy at 44.1kHz and 48kHz sample rates with the latest version of Nebula3 Pro.

The Q8 library is available to purchase for $49 USD. Previous customers pay $39 USD.
