Softube has announced the release of Tonelux Tilt for Windows and Mac OS X in VST, AU, RTAS and TDM plug-in formats.
The Tilt knob rebalances the whole sound of a track with just one twist of a knob, going from a bright and shimmering top to a warm and wide low-end. It's a fast and easy way of making a track sit better in a mix or to make it "warmer" or "cooler", it's also perfect in a live situation where you need to tweak the whole mix to adjust for ear fatigue.
The Tilt Plug-in is a joint development effort between Tonelux designer Paul Wolff and Softube, bringing the famous Tonelux sound to the digital world. The innovative Tilt design was first featured on the Tonelux MP1a discrete mic preamp module and has been a godsend for engineers and producers that need to take control of their sound in a fast and effective manner.
The Tilt plug-in features not only the original Tilt design but also adds a couple of new features. A special "Live" version of the Tilt plug-in is included which is optimized for the Digidesign VENUE system and contains features requested by live sound engineers. The Tilt also includes modeling of the transformer found in the MP1a mic preamp, the transformer adds a subtle distortion for bass frequencies which fattens up the low end of a track.
The Softube Tonelux Tilt plug-in is the first and only software recreation of the Tilt that is officially endorsed by Tonelux.
