TS-2 Released!

Posted on Friday, May 15, 2015

After intensive R&D, we finally have a worthy successor to the original Tube Saturator. Like its predecessor, TS-2 is a super accurate circuit simulation of a tube pre-amp, which can be overdriven gently for warming effects, or cranked for distortion. Same Tube-licious sound now without the CPU hit.

TS-2 features low CPU load, multiple tube models, 2x oversampling, and much more. See the product page for more information.


Existing Tube Saturator users can upgrade to TS-2 for 50% off. Please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we will reply with an upgrade discount coupon. TS-2 will install side by side with original Tube Saturator, it won’t overwrite it, so you can run them both. We will continue to host original Tube Saturator downloads and registrations indefinitely, and may release new updates if there are important bug fixes.

Pace licensing

Tube Saturator 2 requires Pace licensing, the Wave Arts key code system is not supported. Our other products continue to use dual Pace / Wave Arts licensing and we have no plans to move to using Pace exclusively. We plan to release a TS-2 update with a non-Pace option later this year.
