Bonch-Bruevich tube v. 2.0

64 bit VST3/AU plugin

Bonch-Bruevich tube is the first plugin published on this site in 1913. A lot of people downloaded the free version. Users rated this plugin highly. For example, here is a user review of the Bonch-Bruevich tube v. 1.6 :

" Thanks! Bonch is excellent saturator! I have never heard such a reliable tube overload (except for real devices)). If you use it with a sense of proportion when mixing, a very characteristic sound comes out on the master. What I was looking for about 5 years! I didn't think that a small free plug-in would make me so happy - I downloaded it by inertia. It turned out - better than tons of everything I tried before."
