SGA1566 preamplifier is loosely based on a single channel all tube vintage preamplifier. To achieve the most authentic analog sound, the whole circuit is simulated in real time using the high performance circuit simulator. This level of sound fidelity comes at a price of high CPU utilization. For cases where such a CPU hit is prohibitive, we have added a model that is significantly less CPU intensive but slightly less accurate than the circuit simulation.

Use SGA1566 preamp to add warmth to a track, as a saturation compressor, or to add "dirt" with tube overdrive.

Features:

  • Authentic analog sound through real-time high-performance circuit simulation.
  • Preamp featuring two 12AX7 voltage amplification stages.
  • CPU friendly model of the circuit.
  • Two-band active Baxandall EQ that can be placed either at the beginning or at the end of the signal chain.
  • Up to 4x oversampling.
  • Mono or stereo processing mode.

This plugin is a good sounding unit. Unfortunately, the effect is at his best when the high CPU is on. And it's very heavy on it. Good for a small session but if you have a large project it's unlikely that you will have it on. For free, it's the best sounding tube saturation unit I've tested and the equalizer make it a lot versatile and the saturation is warm and doesn't sound fuzzy or digital.

This plugin sounds amazing but comsumes enormous loads of CPU when at max quality. rendering is the solution. sounds perfect.

99% of "circuitry modelling" is promotional snake oil for a company to sex-up their conventional DSP plug-ins. It's easy to tell this isn't the case here, as this is one of the best tube simulations I've ever tried.

The proper circuit model brings my machine to a screeching halt, but the hybrid model is still very good - often I'll produce under hybrid, and then render under the model. This is an addictive "mojo" plug-in. Few others compare.
