Volume 2
Never break the chain.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. The signal chain is no different. Every plug-in in the new Volume 2 bundle represents an upgrade in terms of sound quality. They simply sound more real, more alive, more accurate, and more appealing.



Upgrade your sound
You can have the best singer in the world, using the best microphone, but if you send your signal through an EQ, compressor, reverb, or mastering limiter that's anything less than the best, your results will never sound as good as they could. Every plug-in in the new Volume 2 collection is the best-sounding version available of what it is, meaning you can rely on them to match up to, even enhance, the great sound you work so hard on.

When it comes to reverbs, I want fast access to the key parameters like time, pre delay, tone, etc. These are all there, and the reverb also happens to sound beautiful. The TSAR-1 just sounds big!

The Trident A-Range is my favorite desk to work on as its EQs are spectacularly musical. The Softube plug-in captures its unique color spot on.

Heartbeat is dirty, daring and dangerous. It's a drum synthesizer where you can do so much more than imitate the sound of the eighties. You can create your own identity with Heartbeat.

I put the TSAR-1 on one track of a song 'just to see if I liked it' and I ended up using it exclusively for the rest of the mix.

Heartbeat makes it clear that dsp drum modeling has come a long way. There's a very strong satisfying harmonic hardware like character to these drums. These really work in the mix different to drum plug ins I've tried before. This is a great tool to have on the go or at home as I prefer a more limited set up these days.

Softube's Trident A-Range Discrete Equalizer is an amazingly warm EQ that adds a lot to my mixes. Although the true magic of it lies in the saturation knob. I can twist it up a bit to add a little extra character or really crank it and get a cool over-saturated sound that still is very pleasant.

The A-Range plug-in captures all the tone and energy of the original modules. The Originals are hard to find and maintain but the plug-is easy to use. It's the perfect go to effect for an instant '70's Classic Rock Guitar Tone. This is the perfect solution to the unstable gear of that era. It's easy to use and doesn't go snap crackle in the middle of your session. It seems that the noise and artifacts is the only thing they left out of the plug-in. It works great on Snare Drums and Toms. The Saturation controls add even more tone and circuit compression color for drums. The filters are perfect for getting aggressive with the Eq and then cleaning up the ends of the spectrum. It's not hardware but it's certainly the way I remember these modules.

TSAR-1 Reverb is my new go to reverb. The sound is just fantastic. And its operation couldn't be easier. I can dial in any ambience I could want in the time it would take me just to scroll through the libraries of some of the other reverbs. Its clarity, versatility and simplicity make it an absolute pleasure to use. If the TSAR-1 were a piece of hardware from 20 years ago people would be tripping over themselves to buy the plug-in emulation. Good-bye convolution, hello evolution.
