At the heart of this effect is the desire to achieve a tube sound, with all its inherent roughness and vividness, from a dry digital signal. TL TubeWarmth adds even-numbered harmonies to the input signal, which contributes to expanding the tone of the instrument, giving it new colors and depth. The gentle tube overdrive further reveals new edges to the sound, emphasizing the new texture of the tone. This seemingly simple effect can be a great addition to any musician's palette.
The main aim of TubeWarmth is to bring the cold and precise digital sound closer to the warm and vivid sound of the tube. Simple in its conception, this effect provides two features. One of the features is a light, warm overdrive of the input signal based on a tube model. The other feature is adding even harmonics when processing the input signal. This provides a deeper signal at the output, while adding the vibrant texture to the sound for which many guitarists still prefer tube effects.
Frequency spectrum display feature will allow you to track in detail the changes made when working with the plugin. Real-time visualization of the input and output signals allows you to track exactly what changes you have made when adjusting a particular parameter. This feature makes working with sound as visual as possible, and it becomes clear exactly what a particular parameter is doing on the frequency range.
Despite the fact that TL TubeWarmth is designed specifically for plugin format for using in a DAW, the Standalone version of the effect also is included. If you just want to plug in your guitar and jam, TubeWarmth Standalone is perfect for you!
