Dist TUBE-CULTURE is an enhanced software version of a modern distortion classic, bringing authentic valve-powered warmth and harmonic character to your DAW production. Crank the heat in your mixes with studio-grade saturation and crunch in a few clicks.

Tube distortionmastered

Saturate your mix bus with responsive analog heat; scorch your instruments and stems with destructive distortion; enjoy the unmistakable character of tube-drive studio hardware in your DAW like never before. This is Dist TUBE-CULTURE.

Channeling tube character

Nothing saturates, colors, distorts, or breathes harmonic life into a sound quite like heated vacuum valves. Dist TUBE-CULTURE meticulously emulates this behavior for the most authentic virtual valve sound you could wish for.

Choose your temperature

Enjoy warm mix-gluing saturation, white-hot fuzz, and everything in between. Dist TUBE-CULTURE will respond to your projects with whatever heat you need.

For any sound

Enrich your guitar tracks, fatten your topline vocals, crush your drum transients, or roast your mix bus to serving temperature. This faithful emulation might just be the finishing touch that your production is looking for.

Tastefully enhanced

Overcome the limitations of studio hardware and go beyond analog circuitry with modernized features like gain compensation, post-drive EQ and expanded stereo processing. Old distortion, new tricks.

The soundof heat

Many of music’s most legendary guitar riffs, iconic vocal lines, and soul-stirring mixes simply wouldn’t have been possible without the humble vacuum tube.

These decades-old components are temperamental in their behavior, fragile in their operation, and limited in their lifespan. Yet their ability to produce a beautifully even harmonic response gives any valve-processed sound a rich, warm, smooth character that’s hard to match.

Couple this with their unique ability to dynamically distort incoming sounds with varying levels of grit and aggression, and you’ve got a formula that remains irresistible to musicians, producers, and audio trailblazers to this day.

Whether it's a vocal line in need of some extra color, a drum bus that needs some crunch, or your guitar & synth tracks begging for some edgy crunch, Dist TUBE-CULTURE puts this sought-after sonic attitude in your hands. Experience the stunning sound of a modern studio classic reimagined in virtual form.
