Tube powered Preamp for extra warmth

Precise tube circuit simulations are at the heart of all STA Effects. Each effect has two signal paths that sum at the tube amplifier - hence the name Summing Tube Amplifier. This gives all of the effects the so-desired analog warmth, which brightens and ties the mix together. If you want to use only the tube saturation part of STA Effects, STA Preamp 2 is the way to go. Subtle tube saturation with 5 different modes makes sure you get the right vibe for your songs.

Choose one of 5 different modes

Presence  for a higher amount of mid-high frequencies that cut better through the mix;  

Vintage  for smoother highs and more even harmonics; 

Brown  for almost flat response with an excellent higher harmonics punch;

White  for a higher amount of higher frequencies and the ratio balanced harmonics;

LoFi  for less low and high frequencies;

Simply adjust the Saturation amount

The  Saturation  is the very thing that makes STA Preamp 2 stand out. Simply adjust the amount of applied saturation by turning the knob - it does everything from subtle to crazy-colored. The  Level-In  and  Level-out  controls ensure that your tracks won't clip even with a lot of applied saturation.
