A faithful replica of Tube-Tech's classic compressor with a easy-to-look-at GUI.

The Softube Tube-Tech CL 1B Compressor is a true studio classic, heard on tons of records for the past 20 years. Like its hardware counterpart, Softube's Tube-Tech CL 1B Opto Compressor native plug-in sounds soft, smooth, groovy, and can compress an insane amount of dB's without sounding bad.

This Softube compressor version requires no DSP hardware, and uses the same outstanding modeling technology and algorithms as the famous Tube-Tech CL 1B plug-in for TDM and PowerCore (distributed by TC Electronic). The sound is, of course, just as fantastic as its predecessor. With this unprecedented accuracy, down to details such as the precise VU meter behavior, the Tube-Tech CL 1B compressor plug-in is definitely in a league of its own.

The CL 1B plug-ins by Softube are the only Tube-Tech plug-ins that are fully endorsed by Tube-Tech.
