Softube Volume 3 Bundle
22 Softube Plug-ins
Proven sound quality.
How do you know you can trust the sound quality of a collection of plug-ins?
One way is to ask which top professionals have placed their faith in them already. So when you hear the likes of Deadmau5, BT, Axwell, and so many more are using plug-ins from Volume 3 on a regular basis, you can rest assured these tools are the real deal.
Featuring amps, instruments, effects, EQs, compressors, mastering tools – everything you need to make the best music you can make – Volume 3 is there for you with sound quality that you can count on.
Instruments Volume 3 features; Heartbeat, the renaissance of drum synthesis; Modular, the best-sounding Eurorack modular synth plug-in out there; and introduces Parallels, the dual-source dream-synth.
Signal Processing Tools
Partnerships with brands like Summit Audio, Drawmer, Weiss, and Trident, bring the best classic EQs, compressors, and mastering tools to Volume 3, and the addition of Softube's very own Transient Shaper plug-in will tighten up every facet of your mix.
Whether it's our beautiful TSAR-1 true stereo algorithmic reverb, our roaring Tube Delay, or the new additions of Harmonics and the super-special OTO Biscuit 8-bit effects plug-in, Volume 3 has top-quality creative effects to take all your productions to new heights.
Softube's award-winning Amp Room plug-ins don't just cover classic bass and guitar tones from the highest-quality vintage gear available - they also offer creative ways to treat and revitalize synths, drums, even vocals.
What's new in Volume 3?
Since its last outing, Softube have added significant value to the Volume collection.
The Transient Shaper, one of their most popular plug-ins, capable of adding outrageous punch or silky smooth sustain to your material, makes its first appearance.
Harmonics is also new – 5 astoundingly rich and textured flavors of analog-style distortion, with Dynamic Transient Control technology.
Then there's the OTO Biscuit 8-bit effects processor. Create chippy aliased madness, or simply add grit and grunt before sequencing a gorgeous analog filter, pitch shifting, or waveshaping.
And Parallels, the dual-source dream-synth, and its beautiful workflow, top-quality multi-waveforms, and delicious effects.
With our Volume 3 plug-in collection you can create epic drum machine and synth tracks, process, and polish vocals and acoustic instruments, amp up electric guitars and basses, tie a mix together with premium-quality effects, and add a professional finish to any sound source.
Analog sound from analog legends
Alongside Softube original plug-ins and the Weiss digital mastering maximizer, Volume 3 contains officially licensed emulations of analog hardware from some of the biggest and most well-respected names in pro audio. A channel strip, compressor, EQ, saturation and all, from Summit Audio, multi-band dynamics from Drawmer, an entire suite of real-time modulation tools from Paul Wolff's Fix Audio Designs, and a classic equalizer from a rare and legendary Trident console. Even the filter in the OTO Biscuit is a warm and inviting analog masterpiece.
Equally importantly, our 15 years of experience modeling analog systems, and our attention to detail in oversampling and code-optimization, mean our plug-ins really do sound as good as their analog counterparts.
Use the very same gear as iconic artists and producers of the past and present.
Many of the Volume 3 plug-ins integrate seamlessly with Native Instrument's Native Kontrol Standard. Plug-in parameters and presets can be controlled from KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE.
Great sound, amazing workflow – then it's just up to you to make incredible music.

Compatibility InfoIn theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work.
However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs - Softube's own rigorous testing standards - they only officially test their plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper, and Sonar.
Softube plugins are not tested in other systems, but they most likely work as long as the System Requirements are met. Softube cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported systems.
Softube plug-ins support 64-bit hosts only, and a 64-bit OS is required. Therefore, for example, Pro Tools 10.x is no longer supported (contact Softube support for latest 32-bit compatible installers).
Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz, in both mono and stereo.
The most recent maintenance release of the DAW application is recommended.
AAX DSP is not in active development, but older products still support AAX DSP. For legacy TDM/VENUE, please see Softube's Legacy Installers page.
