How do they sound?
There are so many ways to use each of these exciting plugins, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
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.
Creating the best virtual effects was only a part of the mission. We wanted to make sure you would use them.
The first step was to choose the right iconic gear to model. Our journey for perfect vintage tone led us to London, Paris, and Copenhagen, where we discovered, analyzed, and studied some of the world’s most famous preamps and synth filters. Using our exclusive True Analog Emulation® technology and the same dedicated team that brought you our award-winning V Collection, we were not only able to perfectly recreate this classic audio equipment, but also update it with exciting new features.
These filters and preamps have made their mark on music history. Now it’s your turn.
