Swedish company Softube are well known for their remarkably accurate emulations of classic analog hardware. In this course, join audio engineer Alex Solano as he reveals how to bring analog warmth and character to your mixes using Softube’s powerful and flexible plugins. The course starts with the Tube-Tech PE 1C and ME 1B emulations. Inspired by the legendary Pultec EQ (the grandaddy of vintage “character” EQs!), these plugins can add that extra “oomph” and shimmer to your productions. Watch and listen as Alex gives you a tour of their user interfaces, showing you how to sculpt and mix your tracks to perfection.
You will then discover what makes the CL 1B opto compressor different from other compressors on the market. You’ll also learn how you can drive it very hard without destroying the natural characteristics of the music. Alex then explains how to add roundness and punch to a full mix with all three plugins working together on the Tube-Tech Classic Channel.
The course concludes with a tour of Summit Audio EQF-100 full range tube equalizer and TLA-100A classic compressor. Watch and learn as Alex creatively cuts and boosts frequencies and completely transforms a drum track, before driving and fattening a bass track with the TLA-100A compressor!
