Tube Saturator 2


Authentic tube warming and distortion

Tube Saturator 2 is a super accurate circuit simulation of a tube pre-amp with analog EQ, which can be overdriven gently for warming effects, or cranked for fat distortion. TS-2 is based on circuit simulation techology to capture every nuance of an analog circuit. The saturation section has a simple drive control to set the amount of distortion, and switchable 12AX7 and 12AU7 tube models for different harmonic characteristics. The three band Baxandall type EQ can be switched to run pre or post saturation. TS2 also includes a 2x oversampling option and wet/dry mix control.

Tired of square wave clipping distortion? Try Tube Saturator 2, it will not disappoint.
