Waves Audio is expanding its custom-shop Magma series with the release of the Waves BB Tubes plugin.
Waves BB Tubes is a mind-blowing saturator with an extensive array of sound possibilities that enables you to create your own astounding sonic coloring. BB Tubes offers huge-sounding tube saturation that makes any vocal or instrument jump out of the speakers. With its Beauty and Beast controls, it gives you the ability to attain delicate to aggressive analog brilliance.
BB Tubes makes mixes come to life and gives them a big-budget sound. This plugin is great on drums, vocals, guitars, bass, synths, mix bus, and basically any other element of a mix. Incredible tones are simple to dial in without overthinking, and parts will simply feel “finished” in the mix far quicker than before.
BB Tube features two main controls:
- BEAUTY: perfect for delicate harmonic saturation, where the user just wants to make a sound blossom before it breaks up. This knob achieves an instant roundness, fatness, and glow, and an unmistakably huge low-mid.
- BEAST: gives that immediate in-your-face energy, attitude, and aggression, all the way to crunch distortion. Even when fully broken up, the sound feels tight and controlled, without collapsing into muddiness. Furthermore, there is an A/B switch to select between two different tube types.
The Beauty control cascades into Beast, so users are encouraged to blend the two knobs – tuning and tweaking them for an enormous range of saturation sounds for any part, style, or genre.
