Softube has announced the release of two new products, a hi-fi saturation hidden gem and a new plugin that delivers vintage British console sounds.

The secret is out. We’re thrilled to unveil Overstayer M-A-S. Find out why this harmonic shaper has a cult status among in-the-know pro mix engineers. And! The wait is over. The hotly anticipated British Class A plug-in is here. Now, you can get the British Console Sound all over the DAW.

Softube’s Overstayer M-A-S plugins offer the same saturation and peak-bending capabilities as the hardware in two new, enhanced versions: the do-it-all guru M-A-S and the tone-sculpting Svengali M-A-S Extended.
