Shattered Glass Audio has launched Phoenix, a faithful digital simulation of five analog preamp circuits, having a common two-stage topology, with a three-band EQ.

The plugin is the successor to the SGA1566 MkII plugin, with many improvements.

New, highly efficient circuit simulator delivers 10-20 times improvement in performance over its predecessor (operating in HIGH CPU Mode, 4x oversampled) while reducing the noise floor below -130dbFS. In addition to the original circuit from SGA1566 MkII, Phoenix simulates additional four preamp circuits (two with tubes and two with transistors) with the same two-stage topology. EQ, now, has mids control as well.

Use Phoenix to add color, warmth, dirt, depth, and vibe to your mixes and masters or as a saturation compressor.

Phoenix features

  • Authentic analog sound through real-time high-performance circuit simulation.
  • Three preamps featuring triodes 12AX7, 12AT7, and 12AU7.
  • Two preamps featuring JFET transistors J201, 2N5457.
  • Three-band EQ that can be taken out of the signal path or placed either before or after the preamp.
  • Automatic 4x oversampling.
  • Wet/Dry mixing.
  • Automatic gain control.

Phoenix is available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats, at an intro price of $39.99 USD until December 3rd, 2018 (regular $49.99 USD). Users of SGA1566 MkII can upgrade at a discount.
