Softube has released version 2.0 of its plug-in range, which adds support for AAX 64-bit across the entire product line. Furthermore, all plug-ins have been completely redone from the ground up utilizing the latest CPU techniques available, and most of them show a vastly improved CPU performance for all plug-in formats.
The prices remain the same and the upgrade is free to current Softube users.
While Pro Tools 11 users will be happy to hear that Softube's plug-ins are now available in AAX 64-bit versions and fully compatible with Pro Tools 11, they are not the only ones to get good news today.
One of Softube's most popular plug-ins, Tube-Tech Classic Channel, now has a decreased CPU usage of circa 50% – meaning you can use almost twice as many instances as you could before at the same load of your computer's processor. Summit Audio Grand Channel shows a circa 40% decrease while Vintage Amp Room, Bass Amp Room, Valley People Dyna-mite and Trident A-Range typically use 25-35% less CPU power compared to the previous versions. These examples are all for using the plug-ins in stereo and at 44.1 kHz sample rate.

- Same sound as before.
- Vastly improved CPU performance for most plug-ins on all plug-in formats.
