SGA1566 - Free Tube Preamp
Mac & Win VST & AU
SGA1566 is loosely based on a single channel vintage tube preamplifier.
We have made some changes to the original schematic, added tone controls,
and made it stereo. To achieve the most authentic analog sound, the whole
circuit is simulated in real time using the high performance circuit simulator.
However, 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
Use SGA1566 to add warmth to a track, as a saturation compressor,
or to add "dirt" with tube overdrive.
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.
