Anyone on the AudioDeluxe email list will have received an email with announcements for some new Softube plug-ins, Softube Tape and a Softube Modular Add-on, the 4ms SMR Spectral Multiband Resonator. However when we checked the Softube website neither plug-in was on the site. We have contacted Softube for confirmation but no one was available to confirm or deny the leak by AudioDeluxe.
However based on the detail on the AudioDeluxe pages, which include a video from the Softube YouTube channel, it seems these are genuine new products from Softube and it is an error by AudioDeluxe in releasing the information too early.
Update Both Plug-ins Have Now Been Released
Just a note to confirm that both plug-ins have now been released and you can see our exclusive review on Tape from Softube.
