Italian audio software developers Overload have added Sculptube to its series of effects plug-ins. Its processor features both triode and pentode simulated tubes by using DSP technology and has three different tube configurations available, each to provide a different sound.

 Top features include:

• Hyper-realistic simulation of tube warming/distortion
• Triode and Pentode simulation
• Tube biasing control
• Built-in EQ and parallel processing to sculpt the tone
• Low CPU usage: more than 1500 instances on a Macbook Pro Retina
• Multilevel undo-redo
• A/B Comparison
• Scribble Strips: take notes anywhere on the plug-in panel
• Meter Calibration: calibrate the VU meters at 4 different sensibilities

 THREE TONES IN ONE PROCESSOR: Overloud Sculptube is a versatile tool to build a wide variety of analog tones.

 WARM-UP: With mild Drive settings it allows to recreate an authentic analog coloration to individual tracks or mixes.

 DISTORT: It can also be used to overdrive the input and recreate different kind of tube distortions, including Triode and Pentode curves.

 EXCITE: It’s built-in eq and parallel processor, it can be used to revive the tracks by adding natural harmonics in the high-end.

 THE MAGIC OF TUBE BIASING: The Bias knob controls the amount of current through the tubes.

• At low current the tubes are under-biased and the sound is inclined to be thinner and break up easily.
• At medium current settings the Sculptube distorts least, and this is the typical setting for just warming up a sound.
• At high current the tubes are over-fed and the tone becomes quite fat and harmonically rich.


There are 3 settings for the type of distortion:

• Program 0 (Triode) creates the typical musical effect found with triode valves, with very rich 2nd harmonic distortion, good for warming up a sound.
• Program 1 (Pentode) creates a Pentode distortion, with prevailing odd harmonics, which makes the sound more aggressive while retaining that valve character.
• Program 2 (Special) is obtained with a pretty unusual way of configuring the valve, which gives an extra octave at higher bias settings.
