Add Unique Grit to Your Mix

NOTE: This product requires that you have an iLok account for authorization, although it does not require a physical iLok key. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

Soundtoys' Radiator Emulated Tube Input Channel/EQ gives you the warmth and grit of the legendary Altec 1567A tube hardware mixer of the 1960s in a convenient plug-in. The original was used on early Motown records, gracing those hits with a hefty dose of colorful character. The distinctively green rack unit might have been relegated to a footnote in audio history, were it not for its recent rediscovery by artists such as Maroon 5 and the Black Keys. To inject classic Altec tubularity into your productions, instantiate Soundtoys' Radiator.

Soundtoys Radiator Emulated Tube Input Channel/EQ Plug-in Features at a Glance:
  • Bring classic Altec tube sound to your desktop recording rig
  • Modeled bass and treble tone controls from the original hardware unit
  • Mix control for easy parallel processing
  • Saturation and harmonic effects of the original hardware input and output amplifiers
  • On/off switch for the good old-fashioned hardware noise of the original
  • Includes Little Radiator, a simpler single-stage tube pre amp model based on the Altec 1566A hardware
Put an edge on your mixes with the Soundtoys Radiator plug-in!

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

Radiator is the only plug-in I've ever used that claims to sound like an analog tube unit AND ACTUALLY DOES. The saturation I can pull from it can be super-smooth or real nasty, but it always sounds good. The parallel mix control helps keep things under control when I might otherwise go overboard with the effect.
