SPL TwinTube Processor Plug-In
Developed by SPL for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins Platform, the SPL TwinTube Processor Plug-In is an authentic software version of the world-class tube effects processor, adding analog tube warmth, saturation, and harmonic distortion without impacting dynamic range. With two fully independent stages — which can be run together or separately — the SPL TwinTube Plug-In provides a wide-ranging palette of sonic shaping, from smooth and creamy overdrive to deep, growling saturation.

  • Adds analog tube warmth, saturation and harmonic distortion to instruments and vocals
  • Boosts presence and spatial imaging without increasing overall dynamic range
  • Easy, intuitive interface and simple workflow
  • Developed for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform by SPL
  • Requires a UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Audio Interface

Sonnox Oxford Inflator Plug-In
Developed by Sonnox for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins Platform, the Oxford Inflator does what so many dynamics processors only pretend to do — increase the apparent loudness of a mix or individual tracks without audibly affecting sonic quality or reducing dynamic range.


  • Adds power, presence, and warmth to program material
  • Increases perceived loudness of any source, without audibly affecting sonic quality
  • Provides virtual headroom, allowing percussive peaks to pass without signal overload
  • Direct and band-split modes for maximum flexibility and optimal DSP usage
  • Developed for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform by Sonnox
  • Requires a UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Audio interface
