SPL in Niederkruechten, Germany, released its third plug-in, the TwinTube, at Winter NAMM 2009 in Anaheim, Calif. This release follows the company's launch of its Analog Code plug-in line at the October 2008 AES show with the Transient Designer and the Ranger set of EQs. All Analog Code plug-ins are modeled after analog hardware processors; the TwinTube plug-in is modeled after the TwinTube processor in SPL's RackPack modular system.

Employing two separate, independent tube stages, the TwinTube combines the two main tube artifacts: harmonics and saturation effects.

TwinTube's harmonic processing can be applied to four different fundamental tone frequency bands to improve presence and clarity without raising signal levels significantly. SPL says, "The saturation control can be compared to the sound effects of tape saturation to add warmth and achieve more density with virtually any kind of sound source."

"Our programmers did a great job in creating a very good sounding tube simulation", says SPL's CEO Hermann Gier. "The special qualities of the analog TwinTube are in enhancing in fact nearly any signal with the classic analog sound attributes. Now we can fully transfer those amazing results to the digital domain. And where could the warm, transparent and smooth sound of analog tube and coil filtering make more sense than in DAW productions?"

The TwinTube is available as native and TDM version. The native version supports RTAS, VST and Audio Units formats, the TDM license also includes all native formats.
