Fancy a bit of warmth this winter? have partnered with Pentode audio engineers released Vacuum tube triode warmer TRW-1. What does that mean for you? Read on to find out more.

Most of modern music is mixed digitally. Most of home-made digital mixes/records are missing analog warmth of analog devices, vacuum tubes and tapes. Lot of amateur mixing engineers are using plug-ins emulating analog devices, but many of these plug-ins bring just next distortion instead of analog warmth and creamy sound. This distortion is boosted in mastering process, while you can't get perfect analog sound only with analog mastering if mix is digitally cold and sharp.'¨'¨

Pentode audio vacuum tube triode warmer TRW-1 is plug-in designed by team of skilled electronic engineers and dsp programmers with inner structure similar to real blocks of vacuum tube studio devices, including emulation of physical phenomena like small positive inner feedback, tube softening of transients and compression or generation of both odd and even harmonics, thanks to Pentode vacuum tube PVT8.2 emulation technology, that can generate also first harmonics!  First harmonics are most important aspect of  fat vacuum tube sound, while almost any digital plug-in cannot recreate them.'¨'¨

Pentode audio TRW-1 is aimed for mixing purposes, warming individual channels and adding realistic analog charisma to the mixes.'¨

  • ODD + EVEN harmonics knob '" Generates both odd and even harmonics, secret weapon of many mixing engineers (harmonics can significantly enrich record and are often described with terms like: adding colors of sound, charisma, warmth)'¨'¨
  • Output volume knob '" Boost or attenuate output signal'¨'¨'¢ Bypass knob '" Switch 100% dry or wet sound (with or without effect)'¨'¨
