In the closing quarter of 2016, world-renowned DSP vibemeisters, Softube, unveiled an absolute DAW-busting collection of vibe and koolness. This bounteous bundle comes to us under a rather unassuming name – “Softube Volume 1”.
Don’t let the bundle's deceptively simple name slip under your radar though. This pallet stack of effects and virtual instruments is a full load of tasty, characterful tools that will infuse any DAW project with analog-ish quality galore.
If that weren’t enough, Softube’s “Heartbeat” is an innovative, virtual drum machine that can handle most nearly any beat-making situation imaginable. Last, but far from least, the deluxe, expandable synthesizer, aptly named, “Modular”, attends a dizzying spectrum of flexible synthesis.
Purchased separately, all the included accessories would set you back a little over $2000 (MSRP)! Thankfully, a perpetual (lifetime) license for this crate-load of plug-in glory can be had for a reasonable $499 (USD). Monthly and yearly subscriptions are also available - $20/month and $200/yearly respectively.
