Slate Digital’s Virtual Tube Collection or VTC comprises three plugins which model the unique personalities of vintage preamp and console channels. Each plug can be used either in preamp mode for adding rich colour and warmth to vocals and instruments, or in console mode to emulate the effect of a classic analogue summing amplifier on any mix or mastering bus.
Perfect for adding a thickening to transient responses without being overly aggressive, the VTC London Module boasts a bold low-end and midrange with a smoother high end that never becomes too brittle. Add saturation to mics in preamp mode or analogue fatness to a mix in console mode.
VTC's New York Module combines emulated traits from both vintage tube and discrete solid-state models to deliver a tight low-end with unique harmonic saturation. In preamp mode a desirable punch feel is added which can be intensified even further with the built-in boost switch.
Arguably the most exciting of all three modules, Hollywood breaths life into airy highs, rich depth and a formidable low end to transform tired tracks into analogue flavour-farms. In console mode, the Hollywood Module adds versatile warmth and bass to any mix for extra radio friendliness.
Virtual Microphone System users are in for a particularly transformative ride. Each ML1 and ML2 microphone integrates seamlessly and works as a perfect neutral canvas for each Slate’s Virtual Tube module. A multitude of sonic personalities can be accessed from within the DAW in several clicks.
