Product Description

There’s nothing quite like the magic of huge-sounding analog tube saturation—and this one must be heard to be believed. An original-design plugin from our Magma series, the unique blend of the BEAUTY and BEAST knobs offers a versatile sonic pallet from delicate to beyond aggressive, to help you create expensive-sounding productions.

You’ll find BB Tubes is incredibly addictive. Once you start using it on your drums, vocals, guitars, bass, synths, mix bus and absolutely everything, it’s hard to go back. Incredible tones are simple to dial in without overthinking, and parts will simply feel “finished” in the mix far quicker than before.

The Waves Magma Sound: Analog Like Never Before

The Magma sound was born in Waves’ treasure trove of analog circuitry, and the magic comes from the extraordinary blend of tubes & transformers. BEAUTY cascades into BEAST—so tune and tweak them for an enormous range of saturation sounds.

BEAUTY for Delicate Harmonics

This even-harmonics BEAUTY knob is perfect for delicate saturation, where you just want to make a sound blossom before it breaks up. You’ll hear an instant roundness, fatness and glow with this knob, and an unmistakably huge low-mid.

BEAST for Aggressive Energy

This odd-harmonics BEAST knob gives you that immediate in-your-face energy, attitude and aggression, all the way to crunch distortion. Even when broken up the sound feels controlled and not muddy. There’s also an A/B switch to select between two different tube types.

Sensitivity: True Analog Reaction

Even with BEAUTY and BEAST untouched, running audio through the plugin achieves natural tube compression and harmonic distortion. Use the Sensitivity to control how hard you’re hitting the tubes – the adjustments are gain compensated.

Soft Clipping = Instant Loudness

Use this plugin to get incredibly loud mixes, fast. The soft clipping of the tubes brings down transient peak levels, while dramatically increasing perceived loudness.
