SKnote announce "Percolate" - Tube circuits at a component level.

Percolate is our new workbench for custom tube circuits, emulated at the deepest possible level: components with their "non-ideal" behaviour.

It comes in our new "Retube" range of effects, classic and custom circuits and components.



The first version of Percolate, available in a few days, contains custom circuits that include:

- Two input transformers.
- Two output transformers.
- Two output taps (pre-amp and stage 2).
- Tone filter (at the input, to shape the saturation).
- Compensated input gain.
- Input meters.
- Two power supplies: high-voltage and sagging.

The effect is mono or stereo and the circuits are designed to get lots of color that can be used through a handy, phase-aligned, Mix control.

Simply beautiful. Coming next week on www.sknoteaudio.com.

VST/AU/AAX/32/64 bit.

Introductory MSRP 29.99$

Yes, but not in its first release, as I'm working on specific optimisation. I want as many as possible on a chip.

Not sure we have requirements about versions, should just work.

You mentioned transformers and power supplies but nothing specific about the tubes modeled. Did I miss something?

12AX7 is good. Did you model any NOS versions of those tubes, ie: Mullard, Amperex, Telefunken, RCA, etc? That would put you miles above everyone else.

How about some NOS power tubes by the same companies, eg: EL84s, EL34s, 6L6s, KT66s, etc?

We'll add details. Weird how we had to learn a lot about old things like hi voltage curve tracing, impedance measurements on tube circuits etc. in this digital era.
How yellow the pages of those books are!
