Voxengo has announced an update to the Tube Amp free tube overdrive effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

Voxengo Tube Amp 2.8

Tube Amp is a free audio effect plugin for professional music production applications that applies asymmetric tube triode overdrive usually found in single-tube microphone pre-amp boxes. The sound this plugin produces varies from a mild “warm” overdrive to a fuzzy distortion.

Changes in Tube Amp v1.8

  • Added the “Dry Mix” parameter.
  • Added the preset list sorting function to the preset manager.
  • Redesigned the knob image.
  • Extended the “Color Editor” with color modifiers.
  • Added the “Gray Blue” and “Navy” color schemes.
  • Improved visual quality at different visual interface scales.
  • Windows: implemented (switchable) higher-precision user interface update timer, for smoother display.
  • Added macOS Catalina compatibility.

Tube Amp is a free download in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats.

It is available from the Voxengo website and distributor Plugin Boutique.
