sga1566-2Shattered Glass Audio has announced the release of SGA1566, a free tube saturation effect plugin for Windows and Mac (VST/ AU).

To achieve the most authentic analog sound, the whole circuit is simulated in real time using the high performance circuit simulator. 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 simulation.

Features:

  • 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.

You can use the SGA1566 preamp to add warmth to a track, as a saturation compressor, or to add “dirt” with tube overdrive.
