Shattered Glass Audio releases SGA1566 MkII plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 29, 2015 - comment 0 comments

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.

Manley Labs intros Manley FORCE mic preamp

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 21, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Manley Labs has announced the Manley FORCE, a four-channel high voltage vacuum tube microphone preamplifier.

Manley FORCE

From the CORE, the FORCE incorporates the same proprietary hand-wound Manley Iron® mic input transformers and 12AX7 vacuum tube amplifying stage operating from 300 V rails. Each channel includes a high-impedance, ¼” instrument input as well as an XLR microphone input. On the front, each channel features a 120 Hz high-pass filter, variable input-level pad, phase invert, selectable +48V phantom power, and a high/low gain switch. The CNC machined faceplate features seven-way LED metering for each channel providing instant visible feedback for audio levels. The universal power supply accepts any voltage or frequency from anywhere in the world facilitating travel for international recording projects. As with all Manley gear, each unit is painstakingly hand-wired using silver solder and audiophile-grade components, and hand-built in California.

“From the onset I wanted this product to blow the doors off the price-to-value ratio, while retaining every single ounce of Manley quality, reliability, and integrity,” explains Manley Labs President and co-founder EveAnna Manley. “Everyone is wondering how we could possibly do this for $2,500. We achieved this by prioritizing what really matters-delivering that signature Manley sound-and by engineering it to build efficiently. We really paid attention to how it pops together.”

Handcrafted in the USA. Built like a tank. Designed to endure.

The Manley FORCE carries a retail price of $2,500 USD.
