“PROXIMAMENTE! Whether tracking live or re-processing instruments, many people use a tube amplifier to shape the sound of a track. The AnaMod XF Tube provides a unique way to do this. The XF Tube is an analog model of an amplifier which consists of an input transformer, 2 tube stages, and an output transformer. Any of the stages may be bypassed and each stage has switchable parameters. The transformer stages allow for the selection of an iron or nickel core model while the tube stages provide models for both pentodes and triodes as well as configuring the stage as either push-pull or single-ended.
The XF Tube, while being model based, is a purely analog device. It was created using the AnaMod process to model the complex tube and transformer characteristics. Unlike a digital plug-in or processor- based outboard gear, there is no latency, and no A/D or D/A conversions to compromise the sound.
