1. Weiss DS1-MK3

by Softube

Weiss DS1-MK3

The Gold Standard in Mastering

Mastering compression, limiting, and de-essing without compromise. Every mastering engineer’s fondest dream is about to come true. Softube’s plug-in is a line-by-line code port of the legendary Weiss DS1-MK3 mastering processor — the unit no serious mastering engineer can do without.

The DS1-MK3 brings unparalleled mastering quality into the DAW-based studio with new features and workflows and makes the very best in mastering dynamics more affordable than ever.

Purchase of the DS1-MK3 also includes the intelligent Weiss MM-1 Mastering Maximizer plug-in, the Weiss Deess de-essing plug-in and the Weiss Compressor/Limiter plug-in.

Gold-Standard

Since its launch in the 1990s, the Weiss DS1 has become an absolute gold-standard unit, indispensable in mastering studios around the world despite a premium price tag. Its transparency, unparalleled versatility, and exceptional sound quality make it a must-have, heard (or rather not heard) on pretty much any major record you’d care to mention from the last twenty years. And in that time updates and improvements by Weiss have led to the near-perfection of the DS1-MK3.

And now for the first time ever, it is available as a plug-in from Softube, offering more flexibility than ever in a modern DAW environment, at a fraction of the cost.

What is the Weiss DS1-MK3?

This digital compressor/limiter/de-esser performs tasks no analogue unit ever could, across a wider range of settings. World-renowned mastering engineer, Bob Katz, author of Mastering Audio (hailed by Sound on Sound magazine as ‘the definitive work on mastering’), and three times Grammy winner, described the original hardware unit as ‘impeccable’, saying ‘it is the most transparent, refined, flexible, and least “digital-sounding” dynamics processor I have ever used.’

Working in collaboration with Weiss Digital Audio, this latest addition to the already rich and desirable Softube product range has been almost three years in development. Porting the code perfectly, line by line, from the original unit so that the plug-in sounds identical was just one task. Recreating the workflow and characteristic broad and usable functionality that made the Weiss such a legend was another.

Running at 32 bit/192 kHz (an upgrade on even the hardware original) the plug-in opens up the absolute pinnacle of sound quality to everyone. And with two all-new advanced limiter algorithms in addition to the Weiss original, nothing touches this processor for sheer excellence. Mastering like the masters is open to all for the first time, with all the loudness, clarity, and precision, and none of the drawbacks.

An Improvement on a Legend

The plug-in DS1-MK3 works at resolutions of up to 32 bit/192 kHz (an upgrade on the original hardware). And because it’s a plug-in, you can run it on multiple tracks at once, at no extra cost.

De-ess your mids and sides independently. Compress with variable soft-knee settings to take you from gentle levelling all the way to aggressive crushing. And limit with simply the best, most transparent, brick wall available — including two all-new advanced limiter algorithms in addition to the Weiss original, the second of which is designed for true peak limiting.

Features

  • Officially licensed and endorsed by Daniel Weiss himself.
  • Not an emulation, but a line-by-line code port of the original digital hardware.
  • Exactly the same processor as the $10,000 original, at a fraction of the cost.
  • Three processors in one; de-ess, compress, and limit, with the industry-standard tool.
  • Processes at resolutions of up to 32 bit/192 kHz for exceptional sound quality.
  • Advanced metering – waveform view.
  • Featuring all-new presets from Bob Katz.
  • Truly versatile de-essing. Choose your own filters, adjust frequency, and tailor the process to your needs working in stereo or mid-sides.
  • Digital compressor can operate at speeds no analogue unit ever could and offers you total control.
  • Two brand-new limiter algorithms included, as well as the Weiss original.
  • Run multiple instances of this legendary unit on the same mix at no extra cost.
  • Nothing sounds as clean, as transparent, as good. That’s why the hardware is in every major mastering studio in the world.

System Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.12 or newer (older OS versions may work but are not tested (64-bit only).
  • Windows 64-bit, versions 7, 8 or 10 (64-bit only).
  • Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or newer.
  • Screen resolution 1280×800 or larger.
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz, in both mono and stereo.
  • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended, as well as at least 8 GB hard disk space for installation (individual plug-ins take less space, while sample libraries may require additional disk space).
  • A Softube account is required to register and install the software.
  • An iLok account is required for authorisation of the software.
  • Internet access for downloading installer and managing licenses.
  • iLok generation 2 and up, if you intend to use a physical iLok dongle for authorizing your plug-ins (note that an iLok dongle is not a requirement).
  • In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work.
  • The most recent maintenance release of the DAW application is recommended.

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs – and our own rigorous testing standards – we only officially test our plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper and Sonar. Softube plugins are not tested in the non-listed systems, but they most likely work as long as the system requirements are met. We cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported systems.

Important note: make sure that you always use the latest iLok License Manager. It is not included in the Softube installer but can be downloaded from www.ilok.com​


2. Instant Phaser Mk II

by Eventide

Instant Phaser Mk II

 

Own the First Studio Phaser

Released in 1971, the Eventide Instant Phaser began the studio effects revolution by successfully simulating tape flanging, an effect that’s been at the core of legendary albums for the last five decades.

Reminisce back to a phaser with analog personality, smooth modulations, and inherent musicality. Outfitted with a complete host of control options, the Instant Phaser Mk II is out of the rack and into your plugin arsenal. This new emulation of the classic effect accomplishes the same legendary sound notably used on hits like Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” and “Presence”. The capabilities have been expanded, and now you can even take your phaser on an excursion from the 70s far into the future with the delightfully characteristic “Age” knob.
 
New Age, Old Age, and Everything in Between

As hardware phase-shift networks get older, they don’t line up as well as they used to, revealing their analog character. The resulting effect is less exact, for tracks where imprecise nature is desired. While component drift and unintentional effects are usually omitted in hardware emulation, we’ve decided to put the ball in your court. For a phasing sound that’s straight out of the factory, set Age to 0%. To capture the sound of the same phaser 47 years later (present-day), set Age to 25%. The remaining 75% allows you to discover the Instant Phaser among the wreckage of a dilapidated studio hundreds of years from now and check it out on your new single.

Change the Feel, Switch the Mode

The Instant Phaser Mk II offers three different sonic characteristics that change the amount of phase-shift sections, simply labeled “Shallow”, “Deep”, and “Wide”. When “Wide” is selected, the Instant Phaser Mk II gives you a different amount of phase-shifting on both right and left channels, resulting in a slightly different effect in each ear. You can use this to turn flat mono guitars into huge stereo leads, or make your single-channel synthesizer fill out the sides of your mix.

Different Ways to Phase

The Instant Phaser allows four distinct methods to control the phasing:

  • Manual allows precise automation of the phasing.
  • Oscillator modulates the phasing at a constant rate that you decide.
  • Envelope changes the phase whenever your signal passes the specified threshold. The plugin accepts a side chain input for this control method.
  • Remote maps the phasing control to a mod wheel for tactile manipulation.

Features

  • Add Age for component drift and electrical leakage in your phaser
  • Offers three different flavors of phasing with the Mode switch: Shallow, Deep, and Wide
  • Utilize one of four distinct methods to control the phasing
  • Depth allows you to combine the phased signal with the dry signal
  • Added Side Chain function allows you to trigger the Envelope Follower from a separate source in the mix for inter-track mingling
  • Exercise total control of the Oscillator with Sync and Retrig controls
  • Use Feedback control for a more pronounced sound
  • Includes standard gain input and output

System Requirements

PC

  • Windows 7+ (32/64-bit)

Formats:

  • AAX 32/64-bit
  • VST2 32/64-bit

MAC

  • macOS 10.7+ (64-bit only)

3. MAutoAlign

by MeldaProduction

MAutoAlign

MAutoAlign solves problems with phase cancellations when recording a single instrument using multiple microphones. Normally engineers have to search for ideal delays and potentially invert phases manually. But now all you need to do is to place MAutoAlign to all tracks you want to fix, start playback and press Analyze button in one of them. The plugin will analyze all tracks and after a few seconds you are finished!

Features

  • Unique multitrack design – the plugin does not need any advanced techniques with sidechains etc. All you need is to do is to place one instance to each track. These will automatically talk to each other and perform the analysis without need for your interaction.
  • Completely transparent processing – the plugin only delays each track and potentially inverts phase of some of them. But performs no filtering or any other advanced processing which alters the signal.
  • Advanced metering system – provided meters display frequency cancellations useful to judge how much of the signal is lost when mixing the tracks together.
  • Up to 8 channels surround processing – our plugins can handle not only mono and stereo signals, but also up to 8 channels of surround audio, making them ideal for audio production for movies, games etc.
  • Extremely advanced and easy-to-use user interface – our products are always designed to enhance the workflow. You can easily change all values, fine-tune each control in multiple ways. Easy orientation in a standardized GUI, textual editing and smooth visualization with almost unlimited zooming are standard in all of our plugins. Moreover our plugins are the world first (and still the only ones), which support resizable and stylable GUI’s.
  • MIDI controllers with MIDI learn – you can map any parameter to any MIDI controller or MIDI keyboard and control it realtime or record and automate it.
  • Very fast, optimized for SSE and SSE2 processors.
  • Fully automatable.

System Requirements

Windows

  • Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • VST / VST3 / AAX compatible host (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support

Always use 32-bit plugins in 32-bit hosts, or 64-bit plugins in 64-bit hosts!
 
64-bit plugins can’t work in 32-bit hosts even if the operating system is 64-bit. Do NOT use 32-bit plugins in 64-bit hosts. They would have to be bridged and can become slow and unstable.
 
Mac OS X

  • Mac OS X (10.7 and newer, 32-bit or 64-bit)
  • VST / VST3 / AU / AAX compatible host (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support

Note: Please check your product PDF documentation for more information and installation instructions.


4. PhaseMistress

by Soundtoys

PhaseMistress

Analog Phase Shifter

Rich phase sweeps, deep analog vibe, and tempo-locked modulation.

From funk-laced guitars to swooshing disco drums to jazz-fusion keys and bombastic rock vocals, phase shifting is a wildly diverse effect that’s at the heart of countless records from the 60s to today. PhaseMistress captures the sounds of legendary phasers and packs them into one plug-in that takes this creative effect to the next level.

At Soundtoys, we have a bit of a phaser hoarding problem. We have them stacked in our test room, stock room and literally lining the halls. When designing PhaseMistress, we carefully studied some of the best like the Bi-Phase, Boss Super Phaser, Phase 90, Moogerfooger 12 stage, Small Stone, Trine and many more. We needed to be sure PhaseMistress nailed that rich, silky analog sound. Then we went farther and added deep tweakability and a range of inspiring rhythmic tools. We think you’re going to love what we came up with.

Deeply Customizable

While PhaseMistress comes packed with useful presets and an easy to use hardware-inspired interface, we also give you deep control over the phasing “circuit” that gives this effect its distinctive sound. You can choose from 69 different styles of presets that alter the phaser’s internal structure. Set the number of stages from subtle 2-stage phasing up to a wild 24 stages. You can also fine-tune the resonance, colour and intensity of the effect to craft your own unique phase shifting styles.

Versatile and Creative

Many phasers create their whooshing sound with the help of a humble low-frequency oscillator (LFO). That’s great when you want a simple back and forth sweep. But what if you want something a bit more out there? In PhaseMistress you can choose from a multitude of creative LFO shapes that go beyond what you’ll find in hardware–and you can even draw your own curves in the Tweak panel. For cool robotic effects, try the random mode and step mode for phase shifts that jump rather than sweep. Rhythm mode lets you program your own rhythmic patterns, or choose from some great pre-made ones, too. And in Envelope mode, PhaseMistress responds to the dynamics of the incoming audio making it an awesome rhythm-triggered effect for funky drums, slap bass or rhythm guitar sounds.

It’s on guitar, bass, drums, vocals (Queen, ELO, Pink Floyd anybody?), even whole mixes. We’ve heard crushed envelope phased drums and gritty phased out radio guitar. Turns out it’s more powerful than even we thought. This is one phase you won’t grow out of.

Features

  • Recreate the silky, funky sounds of a huge range of hardware phasers
  • Get authentic analog sounds with 69 different built-in phasing styles
  • Tweak circuit-level options to design your own phasing styles
  • Choose from 6 different operation modes: LFO, Rhythm, Step, Random and more

5. Phase Motion 2

by AudioThing

Phase Motion 2

Advanced Stereo Phaser

Phase Motion 2 is a stereo phaser plugin featuring up to 32 phasing stages. The Rate can be adjusted in Hertz or it can be synced to the host/DAW tempo. You can choose 6 waveforms (sine, triangle, ramp up, rump down, square, random) to modulate the phase, and you can tweak Depth and Feedback to get a classic vintage phaser sound or extreme digital modulations. From version 2 you can have different settings for the left and right channel.

Phase Motion 2 is a stereo phaser, meaning you can have different settings on each channel. Essentially it is like having two phasers, one for the Left and one for the Right channel.

Phase Motion 2 – Stereo Selector

By clicking on the L or R button, the parameters will only control the selected channel. Instead, when the Link icon is selected, both L and R parameters will be affected.

Tips to make a thicker stereo phaser sound:

  • Have the same settings on both L and R channel, but slightly change one or two parameters on one channel only
  • Have a positive amount of Feedback on one channel, and a negative amount on the other channel
  • Use the Invert button only on one channel

Features

  • 32 Phasing Stages
  • 6 LFO Waveforms
  • Rate can be synced to the host tempo
  • Preset system with randomizer
  • Formats: VST, AU, and AAX (32/64bit)
  • Platforms: OSX, Windows

System Requirements

Mac:

  • OSX 10.6.8 or later
  • Core Duo 2GHz

6. Whirl

by Sinevibes

Whirl

Important note: This software is Mac compatible only (Audio Units) and will not function on PC computers.

Whirl is a plugin for creating “barber-pole” phaser effects – with spectrum sweeps that go upwards or downwards in a seemingly endless fashion. It includes two distinctly different modes: first is a classic phaser based on the Bode frequency shifter that creates dramatic, wide-range spectrum swirls. Second mode is our unique development: a barber-pole all-pass phaser which uses three sound layers coupled with six modulation oscillators, producing a much more full-bodied effect with distinct resonant peaks. Both phasers in Whirl employ “through-zero frequency” modulation design for silky smooth transition between upwards and downwards sweeps, plus they can have negative feedback for a more unusual, artificial character.

As always with a Sinevibes product, Whirl has a carefully crafted, clean and intuitive user interface. It features color-coded graphics for consistency with other plugins in our collection and well-calibrated contrast for optimal visibility in most lighting conditions. The interface supports retina resolution and also uses GPU-accelerated rendering, never impairing audio processing.

Features

Sound engine

  • Barber-pole Bode phaser with positive/negative feedback.
  • Barber-pole all-pass phaser with 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 stages, positive/negative feedback.
  • Through-zero frequency modulation design for seamless transitions between upwards and downwards spectrum sweeps.
  • Variable modulation phase offset for stereo widening or full spectrum inversion between the channels.

Graphic interface

  • Color-coded graphics with subtle animations.
  • Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for retina screen resolution.

System Requirements

  • Works with any application that supports Audio Unit effect plugins.
  • Supports OS X 10.6 or later running on 32 or 64 bit Intel Macs.

Important Notes: 

  • This software is Mac compatible only (Audio Units) 
  • An Audio Units (AU) compatible DAW is also required to run this software
  • This software will not function on PC computers

7. Fazortan 2

by D16 Group

Loopcloud Music App from Loopmasters.com

Fazortan 2

Have you ever wanted to replicate that unique, magical breeze floating through most of JMJ’s tunes?

Fazortan 2 is the new incarnation of Controllable Space Phaser which is part of D16’s SilverLine Collection. Total control over the Phase shifter provides you with adjustability and allows you to obtain the desired contour with high precision. Have you ever wondered where does that unique magical breeze so audible in most of Jean Michael Jarre’s tunes come from. Surprisingly the backbone here isn’t the synth itself but the effect unit coupled with the synthesizer, saying more precisely – analogue phaser of which Fazortan 2 seems to be a fine equivalent. Thanks to the analogue modelling technique D16 were able to implement all-pass filters comprising characteristics identical to its analogue counterpart based on Operational Transconductance Amplifiers. Now in version 2 D16 are even closer to the sound character the original hardware unit brings.

You can think about Fazortan 2 as of the exact copy of a retro phaser taken out from the ’70s and redone to become a virtual unit. But being the same sounding unit that provides primal functionality and sound of the original is where similarities end and where limitless scope of plugin comes to play. Bearing on mind only one Rate knob and a Color switch on the front panel of the real phaser device, Fazortan 2 from the first look at its GUI, presents itself as a completely new device that effectively expands capabilities of its origin.

Structure

Full control over two LFOs (waveform, rate and depth) controlling the unit and unlike the hardware unit Fazortan 2 LFO works in various waveform modes: sinus, triangle, hyper-triangle and random (i.e. only triangle is available in original).

By using both LFOs simultaneously you’re now able to obtain the result that owners of the hardware box could only dream about. Endless contour diversity stretches results from monotonous sluggish swing to become a gurgling scrumble, just by a slight repositioning of the rate knob. Additionally, it is now possible to add consecutive all-pass stages as well as regulate the feedback effect. The amount of stages translates on how many humps and pits residues in the converted sound spectrum while feedback parameter value implies the severity of these irregularities. Feedback knob gives you sounds from soft to rapid and drilling. To visually display how it works consider a white noise as an input signal. Moving the feedback knob will start to morph incoming “sea waves” reminiscent noise into “windy” whizz. Additionally, each LFO can be modified by altering its respective phase giving, as a result, an improved panning of the incoming signal.

Who would like to use it?

The best way to judge Fazortan 2 is to listen to it. D16 made every effort to make sure Fazortan will fulfil all expectations one could have before buying an analogue phaser unit. Especially guitarists and retro keyboard players may appreciate the possibility to adjust it so it can emulate the rotary speaker, what along with its rich and lush sound, completes satisfactorily every audio chain.

Of course, given much more manoeuvrability it is a fine fx unit to be adapted regardless of genre.

Features

  • True emulation of a classic analogue all-pass phase shifter.
  • 2 full controllable LFOs
  • LFO synchronization with host application
  • Unique sound different from the other digital phasers
  • 64bit internal processing
  • No harmonic distortions at output
  • Tag-based preset browser
  • Two alternative GUI sizes
  • MIDI-learn functionality throughout

System Requirements

8. MPhaserMB

by MeldaProduction

MPhaserMB

MPhaserMB is a powerful multiband phaser which allows you to deftly manipulate its shape. Its pristine audio quality and multiband core make it perfect for any track you are working on. From guitars to keys to drums, you can even use it subtly on master tracks.

Features

  • Dual user interface – the plugin is not only extremely versatile, but also quick and easy-to-use thanks to 2 graphical user interfaces. First there is a simple default one with several predefined modes, but just a few controls, which lets you start quickly and easily without any knowledge. All you need to do is choose what you want and use a few knobs. And the plugins also has an advanced mode, which provides all the extreme features the plugin offers.
  • 1-6 fully configurable independent bands built on 3 perfectly transparent crossover algorithms (analog, linear-phase and hybrid) with fully adjustable limits and input gains. Includes peak meters for all bands and the master.
  • Continuously adjustable oscillator shape – every oscillator in our plugins is defined by a mix of predefined oscillator shapes, custom waveforms edited using our MeldaProduction Envelope System (MES), step-sequencer and several methods for algorithmic postprocessing. It is the most advanced approach for defining oscillator shapes.
  • 4 global modulators – in each instance you can have up to 4 fully-featured modulators that can modulate any set of parameters including other modulators! In this way you can make the sound move in time, be less static and more interesting. Each modulator works as LFO, follower, midi/audio triggered ADSR envelopes, a pitch detector or even a combination.
  • Up to 8 channels surround processing – our plugins can handle not only mono and stereo signals, but also up to 8 channels of surround audio, making them ideal for audio production for movies, games etc.
  • Full randomization – using a single button you can generate completely new settings. By clicking the button you can walk through the billions of possible settings and find the best one for you! And if that’s too much, you can just hold ctrl and MPhaserMB will only slightly modify existing settings.
  • Adjustable up-sampling 1x-16x to minimize aliasing and get an even clearer sound.
  • Extremely advanced and easy-to-use user interface – our products are always designed to enhance the workflow. You can easily change all values, fine-tune each control in multiple ways. Easy orientation in a standardized GUI, textual editing and smooth visualization with almost unlimited zooming are standard in all of our plugins. Moreover our plugins are the world first (and still the only ones), which support resizable and stylable GUI’s.
  • Automatic synchronization to host tempo – every oscillator and modulator in the plugin can automatically synchronize to the host providing as natural a sound as possible while not offending other tracks.
  • MIDI controllers with MIDI learn – you can map any parameter to any MIDI controller or MIDI keyboard and control it realtime or record and automate it.
  • Very fast, optimized for SSE and SSE2 processors.
  • Global preset management and online preset exchange – using a title button you can save your settings (which are shared on the computer) so you can easily access these in other songs. Moreover all plugins can automatically share your presets and download presets of other users from our servers (if this feature is enabled). We are building a community and you can be a part of it!

10. Fix Phaser

by Softube

Fix Phaser

No single phaser could please Paul Wolff. He wanted them all in one. All the stages, the sweeps, the tones. From the mind of Paul Wolff, here is the Fix Phaser.

Have you ever worried that your guitar just doesn’t sound enough like a spaceship? We know we have. Coming from the ever-fertile mind of audio legend Paul Wolff, Fix Phaser perfectly covers this concern and many others too. Create subtle movement and texture in a string section or synth pad, wash a drum kit in stratospheric swirling attitude, create a throbbing, oscillating vibrato in a vocal, or simply swoosh and whoosh things to your heart’s content.

Turn mono into stereo

The wide mode can create natural, convincing stereo soundscape from a mono track. Especially useful on guitars, vocals, drums and other instruments that sound static and lifeless.

What it does

With a clean and easy-to-navigate modern interface, the Fix Phaser loses none of that quintessential 70s/80s sound and style and can transform a flat, dull track into a vibrant living beast in no time, and in a number of different ways. Sweep your phase centre at a rate anywhere between 0.01 and 6Hz, or let the incoming signal bump and pump the effect with the in-built envelope follower. Phase offset and regen settings allow further customisation of the sound, and three different stereo settings give the user control over the spread of the effect, from both mono and stereo sources.

Fix Phaser builds on the mind-warping technical concepts already presented in the Fix Flanger and Doubler, completing the “Fix” modulation series. Never again will you reach into the toolbox and find an empty space where your spaceship should be.

In short

  • Lush vintage phasing sound in a modern plugin package
  • Wide and versatile feature set
  • Mix knob allows blending of wet and dry signals to taste
  • Create stereo soundscapes out of mono sources
  • Generate subtle movement in flat or dull-sounding instruments
  • Out-of-this-world whooshing effects

System Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.12 or newer (older OS versions may work but are not tested (64-bit only).
  • Windows 64-bit, versions 7, 8 or 10 (64-bit only).
  • Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or newer.
  • Screen resolution 1280×800 or larger.
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz, in both mono and stereo.
  • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended, as well as at least 8 GB hard disk space for installation (individual plug-ins take less space, while sample libraries may require additional disk space).
  • A Softube account is required to register and install the software.
  • An iLok account is required for authorisation of the software.
  • Internet access for downloading installer and managing licenses.
  • iLok generation 2 and up, if you intend to use a physical iLok dongle for authorizing your plug-ins (note that an iLok dongle is not a requirement).
  • In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work.
  • The most recent maintenance release of the DAW application is recommended.

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs – and our own rigorous testing standards – we only officially test our plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper and Sonar. Softube plugins are not tested in the non-listed systems, but they most likely work as long as the system requirements are met. We cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported systems.

Important note: make sure that you always use the latest iLok License Manager. It is not included in the Softube installer but can be downloaded from www.ilok.com​

Phaser Snapin

Phaser: Pulsating Effect

Beam me up, Scotty! No matter if you set the knob to stun or kill,  Phaser can spice up your life with twirly frequency sweeps.Pretty much all the bad things with signal phase issues, but turned into an effect and labeled “cool”.

What’s a Snapin?

This plugin is a “snapin”. That means you can use it as a regular VST/AU plugin, or you can use it with our snapin hosts Multipass and Snap Heap where you can combine effects in amazing ways.

System Requirements

These are the minimum recommended system requirements for running snapins.

CPU:

  • 2 GHz or faster

Memory:

  • 1 GB or more

Operating System:

  • Windows (7 or newer) or Mac OS X (10.7 or newer)

Software:

  • A VST / Audio Unit / AAX compatible DAW

Supported formats:

  • AAX
  • AU
  • VST2
  • Snapin

Please note: If you use a lot of snapins at the same time in your patch the CPU usage willincrease accordingly. Thus, we cannot guarantee that the snapins will work flawlessly in all use cases even if your system does meet the minimum recommended system requirements.

Mobilohm

Ride the Phase… or the Phase Will Ride You

Mobilohm is another brilliant plugin for creatively-minded people. Best described as a multi-phaser functionally speaking, it is actually more focused on helping you get incredible sounds across a large palette of tones. Hence, the variety and the quality of features to turn your wildest dreams into reality.

A Multi-Phaser like No-One

4 phaser circuits splitable into 4 frequency bands for separate treatment: actually, it is 4 independent oscillators, all switchable and volume-adjustable, with various controls including a bandpass filter and 3 phasing algorithms for each of them… but with classic vintage phaser effects available as well!

Powerful LFOs

Perhaps the most exciting thing is that all of the parameters have a dedicated LFO. This makes Mobilohm an extremely versatile tool when it comes to shaping sound, besides the standard time factor. Create gated rhythms synced to phase or go completely crazy by tweaking knobs further than it is usually allowed!

Let your Sound Move

From the tenderest sonic caresses to immense, swirling waves of sound, from lush to thin, from ethereal pads to highly percussive, tempo-synced effects, the vast spectrum offered by Mobilohm makes it so easy to pump texture and depth into your tracks.Two Skins, Two Paths to the Force

Ohm Force plugins come with two skins: the classic one gives you all the controls in a neat, old school analogue rack-like interface. It’s a good point to start learning and get familiar with the plugin’s capabilities. The other one, called ‘funky’, embodies the true spirit of Ohm Force.

System Requirements

Mac (32/64-bit)

  • Audio Units (AU)
  • VST
  • AAX / RTAS (Pro Tools)

Windows (32/64-bit)
