Tech Tip:How Does A Tube Processor Warm Up A Digital Recording?

Tubes can bring out even-number harmonics, which listeners experience as warm and full. They can also add mid- and low- frequency distortion which is characteristic of analog recordings in which high volume levels saturate magnetic tape.


Tube mics and tube mic preamps are a great way to warm up vocals and acoustic instruments. Tube dynamics processors and effects processors will add their special character to the sound. And tube saturators introduce the frequency curves present in hot-level analog recordings.


Processors and saturators can be used either as the track is recorded or during mixdown.
