This is just jealousy. He hasn’t endorsed anything bad. They have all been genuinely good products. Avenger is an award winning synthesiser.

Given what he endorsed recently and the machine behind trying to push the ''north pole fridge sales'' I wouldnt say that its over simplifying the ''endorsement'' idea.

With that being said, I've bought Harmonics today and was very satisfied and pleased with the result.

Good job Softube.

It really tells how bad are you doing in this job when you're Softube endorsee.
Myself at the the moment I'm paying to endorse Softube headquarters.

I'm demoing it for 3 days and have mixed fillings: sounds really pleasant has a wide palette of colors and useful tone and dynamic sections. but as usually I don't sure it can do something can't be achieved with this two and eq
It can be but this and tape works the fastest plus the modern circuit sounds analog enough who care 5 6 percent difference I dont.What I like about softube its that it preserve the transients uad always makes everything sounds on the top it.doesnt blend as good.

Will this ever be integrated into Presonus Studio One, like Tape is?

I clicked on the Manual button and the user guide opens up but after trawling through the index and 500 pages no mention of this plugin.

As a side note I wish Softube would do individual manuals instead of this one encyclopedia of every Softube plugin.

Same here. I was thinking "oh no not yet another saturation mushy destroyer of my mixes"...

I tried it. And it replaced every saturation i have (including Decapitator).

I can't believe how good sounding this little plugin is.

Now when they finally removed gobbler i am slowly trying plugins and can't stop being amazed and asking myself what was i missing this whole time and how i lived without working with these plugins

Even their Tape plugin is a class.

I wanted to try it again but demo expired .. i hope softube would'provide demo s that get full features for like 30 min and then you have to re insert it , demo expiration is a pain when you want to retry stuff later or during a sale ...

Perhaps you can mail them and they can "reset" demo for you. I don't know is that possible but maybe?

Seriously very high quality feel to this.

I forget to mention i tried it on 808 and 909 bus and i smiled and smiled

I am stupid loser Now i'll have to buy their Softube TubeTech MKII collection (they finally nailed compressor), Tape and Harmonic...i don't want to try their other new releases...

I hope they are not working at FET MKII - i mean all their latest FX plugins are really something in a class of it's own..it will be very sad day for my wallet..

Btw someone here asked how Harmonic is when compared to Slate Bomber.

Well imho (i have Bomber) they are entirely different processors. Not comparable. Not the same at all. Bomber is more compressing and is better for different task not for making sound saturated and bold in the way Harmonic is processing. Just my opinion.

Try both

Hear hear. I demoed bunch of ”new” plugins few weeks ago and I’m still floored by the quality of Softube stuff. Taupe was a great surprise too although it has a different overall vibe.

I’ve worked with Studer tape machines (from budget versions to full high end stuff) and only UAD Ampex atr-102 has been the only tape plugin I truly like. Now there’s three better ones. Great stuff!

I haven't been using it a ton, but every time I pull it up I'm excited by the results. I tend to think of it when I really want to distort something, because it is so clean; you can drive it into extreme distortion and it stays very open and clean, you don't get that buzzy, cloudy, fake sound that most saturation plugins create until well past any input gain/drive setting that I would expect to be musically useful. Instead you just get beautiful rich, lively tone.

My favorite trick with it is to drive it really really hard and then set the mix knob to 10% or less.

Obviously it does a good job of more typical lightly driven "enlivening" saturation, but as it is quite CPU-intensive and there are other plugins that can do that without getting unacceptably cloudy and buzzy (True Iron, Aroma, HG-2), I tend to use those instead for light saturation. That said I have a very old and underpowered computer. It is possible that with a more powerful computer it could be a superior go-to saturation option as well.
