Softube releases Mutronics Mutator effect plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Softube has introduced the Mutronics Mutator, a stereo analog filter and an envelope follower which can be used to create mind boggling filter effects on any sound source.

Softube Mutronics Mutator

Mutronics Mutator was an instant success when it came out in the early 1990’s, and had an enormous impact of the sound from that decade. The Mutator can clearly be heard on records by artists such as Radiohead, Beck, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, Nine Inch Nails, Massive Attack and many more.

But the Mutator was short lived. Production ceased abruptly when a vital component was discontinued by the component manufacturer. The original has since then only been available at auction sites, often at prices much higher than the original purchase price. Softube has worked closely with Mutronics to ensure that the plug-in captures every delicate detail of the original hardware.

Mutronics Mutator features

  • Mind boggling filter effects.
  • Control filter sweeps by the sound source’s amplitude, from the LFOs or from an external sound source.
  • Used on many seminal records from the 1990s.
  • Based on technology developed for analog synthesis from the 1960s.
  • Each and every component carefully modeled.
  • Extremely analog behavior of frequencies, phase, distortion, etc.

Mutator for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for $219 USD.

Softube Saturation Knob

Softube has announced that its Saturation Knob effect plug-in is now available at no charge.

As of today, Softube’s Saturation Knob is available as a free download. It can be used in any VST, Audio Units or AAX host—and also as a Rack Extension in Propellerheads Reason—on both Mac and Windows platforms. You’re welcome.

The Saturation Knob has previously been available exclusively for Presonus Studio One and Pro Tools users, but today we make it available for users of other DAWs as well. For VST, AAX and Audio Units, Saturation Knob is part of the installer package, which includes all Softube plug-ins.

No iLok is required for using the Saturation Knob. For any of the other Softube plug-ins in the installer package, iLok owners can download 20 day demonstration licenses. To demo Solid State Logic XL 9000 K-Series for Console 1, a Console 1 system is required.
