Tubes! is dedicated to the raw but caressing nature of tube sound, showing that there's more to tubes than amplification. A whole synthesizer built with tube modules as well as various effects were used to create a bunch of the most aggressive, glamourous or simply unusual samplesets ever made... Tube sound rocks!!!
Tube sound bears, due to the tubes' unique technical character, some incomparable sonic possibilities. With soft saturation and the often quoted warmth, a lot of body and soul can be added to todays rather clinically sounding productions. Pads and leads start bootlicking and accoustic style instruments get wiser with just a little scratch of tube sound. Raising the level a little bit higher basses evolve to huge, clipped monsters and synthesizers go off screaming in a nutty way. This Virtual Instrument is nothing like farty, transistor- or digital-style overdrive! - This is Tubes!
To show that tube sound is versatile, a lot of audio-sources were used in combination with the little glowing buggers. From software- to digital- and analog hardware synthesizers up to a full blown analog modular system quite some combinations have been checked out. After recording, having versatile and seamless playability as well as canny filesizes in mind, every multi-samplekit was edited to deliver a high performance Virtual Instrument. Chop it to pieces!
