Universal Audio releases Tonelux Tilt EQ & Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-Ins

Universal Audio has released the Tonelux Tilt EQ and Valley People Dyna-mite, two plug-ins developed by Softube for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces.

Tonelux Tilt EQ

Designed to speed up EQ workflow and enhance creativity, the Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In allows for quick, simple, and effective broad-stroke EQ moves.

Softube Tonelux Tilt EQ

With the single Tilt control, engineers and producers can quickly mix as they go. Turn it to the right to cut lows and boost highs, turn it to the left to cut highs and boost lows. The Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In also models the transformer found in the Tonelux hardware, adding a subtle distortion for bass frequencies, fattening up the low end of a track.

The included Tilt Live EQ plug-in skips the transformer modeling, freeing up even more instances for live mixing. It also replaces the Gain control with a Boost Ceiling control, which keeps the output gain of the plug-in from being boosted no matter how much EQ boost is applied.

Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In features

  • A one knob equalizer that quickly gets your mix in shape.
  • Speeds up your workflow and makes mixing more intuitive.
  • Models the entire Tonelux Tilt circuit designed by Paul Wolff.
  • Smooth high and low pass filters.
  • Two plug-ins included —Tilt EQ with transformer modeling, Tilt Live optimized for live mixing.

Valley People Dyna-mite

The Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-In is an exacting emulation of the classic limiter/expander/gate designed by the legendary Paul Buff, who founded the historic PAL studio in southern California.

Valley People Dany-mite

The Dyna-mite has enjoyed a fanatical cult following for over three decades and is considered a “secret weapon” by top engineers and producers. Although it can be used as a traditional limiter or expander, the Dyna-mite is also a creative tool capable of extreme, yet musical effects on a variety of sound sources.

The Valley People Dyna-mite plug-in offers the exact features and sonics of the famed hardware unit and can transform instruments with dynamic gating textures. It can be used for nearly anything from gently limiting and de-essing vocals, to demolishing the transients of any sound.

Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-In features

  • An exacting emulation of the original legendary 80s dynamics processor.
  • Use it to limit, expand, gate or de-ess, with a wide range of uses.
  • Limiter goes from abusively squashing to transient-enhancing spikiness.
  • Expander/gate goes from strict and tight to subtly expanding by softening the soft sounds and bringing the louder sounds forward.

The Tonelux Tilt EQ and Valley People Dyna-mite plug-ins are available for purchase for $99 USD and $199 USD, respectively.

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).

The 2.0 update is now available to download to Softube plug-in users.
