Tone Empire has announced the release of its new plugin Black Q, a vintage equalizer effect that brings the sound of “smooth tubes”.

We recently brought a vintage unit to life by building the hardware version over 6 months, changing tubes, transformers and signal paths.

In this quest we build a ” Golden Unit ” with “Super Powers”. We had the idea then to model this curcuit with 2 paths involving sowter and lundahl transformers and some choices of vintage valves. The result was simply “Stunning”.

Then combining this with a versatile EQ Design, we developed a monster Tube EQ in the DSP world, a kind of hybrid with a sound going from ”Clean and Silky” to full on ”Crunchy” sounding saturations.

Black Q is available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats. It is on sale for the intro price of $39 USD at Tone Empire and distributor Plugin Boutique until August 31st, 2019 (regular $79 USD).
