Softube has announced availability of Volume 1 — a plug-in bundle available both as perpetual licenses and as a subscription package that include a 90-minute tutorial video with Ryan West (Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West).
Volume 1 was compiled by identifying the 11 most common situations in music production, such as creating drum machine and synth tracks, recording and mixing electric guitar, vocals or other acoustic instruments, and then adding the plug-ins needed to solve them. Volume 1 combines software instruments with effects and tools to enhance the creative process. 16 plug-ins are included with software emulations of legendary analog gear from Summit Audio, Trident, Drawmer, Fix, and Doepfer.
To make the most of Volume 1, you also get a 90-minute mix tutorial video. Grammy-nominated engineer Ryan West (Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West) walks you through the creation of a song using the Volume 1 plug-ins. The tutorial is made by pureMix, the online video education service for music and sound.
How To Buy Volume 1
Volume 1 contains plug-ins with a total value of over $2,000.00, which users can get their hands on in three different ways:
- The bundle is offered as perpetual licenses at a list price of $499.00 — available as a download from Softube's website or as a boxed version from Softube dealers, although an introductory offer of $399.00 is available until November 24.
- Secondly, Volume 1 is available at a monthly online subscription of $19.99.
- The third option is exclusive to authorized dealers — buy a 12-month prepaid subscription for $199.00.
Softube works with Gobbler for the subscription service, which also means a much improved download, install, and licensing process for owners of any Softube plug-ins.
