Tube-Tech Complete Collection

Often the best route to a stellar mix in the box is to have a straightforward, consistent, and effective approach across many or all of your channels. Using channelstrip plug-ins can emulate the analog console workflow in a pleasing and time-saving way, but does it sound as good as ‘the real thing’? Well put it this way: a little character can go a long way.

Comprised of three separate units, the passive tube-driven PE 1C and ME 1B ‘Pultec’-style equalizers and the world-famous CL 1B optical compressor, the Tube-Tech classic channel is not a typical strip. It tastefully warms and saturates any sound source with its tube-stages, and gently levels them with its slow, smooth compression.

The Mk II version benefits from all the sonic improvements to its component parts – a complete ground-up remodel of the CL 1B, and an update to the EQs using our very latest signal processing technology – as well as having stunning new high-resolution graphics and additional features.

The Softube Tube Tech Classic Channel brings my favorite Tube Tech gear under one plugin . It's perfect for a Vocal Chain, Bass channel and even the entire stereo mix. I love the air of the top end and the compressor is versatile enough to do subtle mix compression or aggressive bass or drum compression needed for modern pop music

Mid/side processing opens this unit up for the first time to serious applications of stereo-image management – compress and EQ your kick and snare differently from your overheads, for example, for a wider, or more compact drum mix. Or in mastering, gently balance the vocal against the rest of the track by low-cutting the detector circuit of the ‘mid’ portion of the signal and homing in on exactly what you need.

The new CL1B plug in is a life saver! It just feels so “right”. I own a hardware CL1B (but just one), and this plug allows me to use it on as many tracks as I want... and the new Wet/Dry control is a game changer! As for the Classic Channel mkII, it may be the most flexible EQ I have ever used going from dramatic to subtle... That, combined with the CL1B in the chain make this plugin bulletproof! You can pretty much fix issue you inherit with this thing!!!

With the equalizers you can shape the sound of a track, a bus or a whole mix within seconds. The highs sound smooth and gentle, the mid-range airy and focused, and the lows full and fat, almost at any setting.

Forget about precise and minute tweaks with 0.1 dB read-outs. The Classic Channel is simply about getting the best sound possible, and the way to get there is easy. Turn the knobs, and you'll see.

Excellent stuff! The addition of sidechain, mid-side, and parallel capabilities are much welcomed features. Talk about one-stop-shop for sub groups and the mix bus. It sounds properly lavish (unless I’m being tricked by the pretty new graphics). Much improved in every way!

The Tube-Tech Mk II Complete Collection includes the Classic Channel Mk II, the individual Mk II plug-ins (the combined Tube-Tech Mk II equalizer and the CL 1B Mk II compressor), and all the original legacy plug-ins (Classic Channel, PE 1C and ME 1B equalizers, and the CL 1B compressor).
