The preamps can do everything from recreating the classic tonal atmosphere of classic tracks from the 60s and 70s, to glorious soft-clipping analog drive. The filters are immensely powerful creative tools that not only give you full control of the frequency spectrum, but also let you create tempo-synced, modulated patterns. Able to create both the subtle and the insane, providing practical utility with creative inspiration, these plugins are destined to become your go-to choice.

Take a listen to some audio demos, each featuring a dry/wet toggle, so you can hear what our filters and preamps can do to your sounds. Some of these demos - particularly the subtle harmonic enhancement of the preamps - require high quality playback on studio monitors or headphones to experience the full benefit.
