Plugin Boutique has launched a sale on the Little Radiator audio effect that models the classic Altec 1566A tube mic preamp.

Little Radiator Flash Sale

If you want a touch of 60s warmth on your tracks, reach for Little Radiator. It’s great for fattening up bass, guitar, drums, or vocals. And it’s fantastic on electric piano.

This modeled tube pre-amp from Soundtoys is based on the Altec 1566A, a simple little preamp straight out of the Motown Era. Little Radiator drives and breaks up in very interesting ways, creating rich harmonic distortion, exactly like the 1566A.

Looking for something a little dirtier? Flip the Bias switch and dial in a slightly choppy, misaligned sound that’s perfect for lo-fi drums or adding grit to vocals. You can even choose to recreate the noise of the original preamp. Little Radiator has boatloads of color and character. It’s just what you need to shake the “clean” off of your computer recordings.

The plugin is on sale for only £8.95 GBP / $10 USD until December 20th.

Bigger brother Radiator, based on the Altec 1567A mixer amp, is priced at $49 USD until December 31st (regular $129 USD).
