Tube Saturator Vintage
Authentic tube emulation for free
It uses circuit simulation technology to faithfully reproduce the sound of a dual triode preamp. While it sounds great, the circuit simulation technology is very CPU intensive, that’s why we developed its successor, Tube Saturator 2.
Tube Saturator 2 is vastly more efficient, nearly identical in simulation accuracy, and adds other features. However, some users prefer the sound of the original and request it, hence we have released it as a free plug.
While free, Tube Saturator Vintage still requires registration. When the plug first pops up a “needs registration” window, click the Register button and you will be provided with a serial number, just enter your name and email address and click OK.
Use Tube Saturator to add a bit of analog warmth to recordings, or increase the drive for some distortion. You can use it as a saturating peak limiter too.
