Softube Effect and Instrument Plug-ins
How do you know you can trust the sound quality of a collection of plug-ins?
One way is to ask which top professionals have placed their faith in them already. So when you hear the likes of Deadmau5, BT, Axwell, and so many more are using plug-ins from Volume 3 on a regular basis, you can rest assured these tools are the real deal.
Featuring amps, instruments, effects, EQs, compressors, mastering tools – everything you need to make the best music you can make – Volume 3 is there for you with sound quality you can count on.
Instruments: Heartbeat, the renaissance of drum synthesis; Modular, the best-sounding Eurorack modular synth plug-in out there; and Parallels, our dual-source dream-synth.
Signal Processing Tools: Partnerships with brands like Summit Audio, Drawmer, Weiss, and Trident, bring the best classic EQs, compressors, and mastering tools to Volume 3, and the addition of our very own Transient Shaper plug-in will tighten up every facet of your mix.
Effects: Whether it's our beautiful TSAR-1 true stereo algorithmic reverb, our roaring Tube Delay, or the new additions of Harmonics and the super-special OTO Biscuit 8-bit effects plug-in, Volume 3 has top-quality creative effects to take all your productions to new heights.
Amps: The award-winning Amp Room plug-ins don't just cover classic bass and guitar tones from the highest-quality vintage gear available – they also offer creative ways to treat and revitalise synths, drums, even vocals. We give you quality, you get freedom!
What's new in Volume 3?
Since its last outing Softube added significant value to the Volume collection.
The Transient Shaper, one of the most popular plug-ins, capable of adding outrageous punch or silky smooth sustain to your material, makes its first appearance.
Harmonics - 5 astoundingly rich and textured flavors of analog-style distortion, with Dynamic Transient Control technology.
Then there's the OTO Biscuit 8-bit effects processor. Create chippy aliased madness, or simply add grit and grunt before sequencing a gorgeous analog filter, pitch shifting, or waveshaping.
And last but not least Parallels, the dual-source dream-synth, and its beautiful workflow, top-quality multi-waveforms, and delicious effects.
With the Volume 3 plug-in collection you can create epic drum machine and synth tracks, process and polish vocals and acoustic instruments, amp up electric guitars and basses, tie a mix together with premium-quality effects, and add a professional finish to any sound source.
Many of the Volume 3 plug-ins integrate seamlessly with Native Instrument's Native Kontrol Standard. Plug-in parameters and presets can be controlled from KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE.
