A plug-in that replicates a renown studio compressor with unprecedented accuracy.

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

This version requires no DSP hardware but 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 behaviour, the Tube-Tech CL 1B 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.

About the CL 1B
The hardware CL 1B differs from many other compressors in that the gainreduction element is made from a nonsemiconductor component, which in itself has a very low harmonic distortion and none of the nonlinearity problems involved when using most semiconductor elements. All parts of these equally important design choices have of course been painstakingly modeled when creating the CL 1B plugin.

Another thing that is special about the CL 1B is the Attack/Release Select switch which allows the user to switch between a manual and a fixed attack/release setting, but also makes it possible for the user to combine both the fixed and manual settings. This gives a feature not normally obtained in other compressors: In the combined mode the attack and release controls makes it possible to obtain complex program dependent releasetime slopes where a fast peak results in a fast release and vice versa.

Compression controls
¢ Gain: Up to +30 dB of make-up gain
¢ Ratio: Continuous ratio control from 2:1 to 10:1
¢ Threshold: Continuous threshold control from +20 dB to -40 dB
¢ Attack: From 0.5 to 300 milliseconds
¢ Release: From 0.05 to 10 seconds

Attack/release select
The Tube-Tech CL 1B features a unique attack/release switch. The switch has three different positions:
¢ Fixed: In the fixed mode, the attack time is set to 1 millisecond and the release is set to 50 milliseconds
¢ Manual: In the manual mode, the attack and release controls work as normal
¢ Fix./man: In the fix./man. mode, the release control works as in manual mode. The attack, however, is fixed to a fast attack and the attack knob turns into a delay for the release time.

NOTE: Requires iLok USB key. It is not included in the Softube installer, but can be downloaded from
