Softube launches version 2.0 of its plugins (incl. AAX 64-bit)

Softube 2.0 plug-ins in Pro Tools 11

Softube has announced version 2.0 of its plug-ins, offering support for AAX 64-bit across the entire product line.

Furthermore, all plug-ins have been completely redone from the ground up utilizing the latest CPU techniques available, and most of them show a vastly improved CPU performance for all plug-in formats. The prices remain the same and the upgrade is free to current Softube users.

While Pro Tools 11 users will be happy to hear that Softube’s plug-ins are now available in AAX 64 bit versions and fully compatible with Pro Tools 11, they are not the only ones to get good news today.

One of Softube’s most popular plug-ins, Tube-Tech Classic Channel, now has a decreased CPU usage of circa 50% – meaning you can use almost twice as many instances as you could before at the same load of your computer’s processor. Summit Audio Grand Channel shows a circa 40% decrease while Vintage Amp Room, Bass Amp Room, Valley People Dyna-mite and Trident A-Range typically use 25-35% less CPU power compared to the previous versions. These examples are all for using the plug-ins in stereo and at 44.1 kHz sample rate.

Softube plug-ins v2.0

  • Same world class sound as before.
  • Vastly improved CPU performance for most plug-ins on all plug-in formats.
  • AAX 64 bit support.
  • Free upgrade.
  • Unchanged prices.
  • 20 day trial license available to all (requires iLok).

SoundToys has also released updated Audio Units for the new Mavericks Mac OS X operating system.

This update also includes full support for Audio Units on Mac OS X Mavericks. This applies to all SoundToys real-time native plug-ins, and is free for all registered users in their SoundToys account.
