Default Tube Saturation

Hi DUCers,

is there any plugin that comes with PT9 which can simulate a saturation like the one you get from tube mic pre-amps?
I did not find anything quickly...
If not, which one would you recommend to buy?

Thanks,

Andy

PS I like the one which is included in Izotope's Nectar plugin (recently tested the demo). But I just need the saturation, not everything around that (Nectar also includes reverb, delay, compressor, etc. etc.).

Mellowmuse has one(can't remember the name), Massey has a tape sim, and Avid has Real Tape Suite. Massey is the bargain(and they have a free demo version). Then Steven Slate has the classic Console Collection and Antares has a tube saturator. There's more out there, but this is a start.

I myself am I big fan of McDSP's AC1 and AC2 plug-in. It sounds fantastic mixing through it. Check it out!!!

There's also 112dB's Redline PreAmp that works well.. Each of these mentioned is a little different from the others..

Demo a few things and see what fits your bill.

Merry Christmas!

Not actually a tube saturation, but nice:

Tapehead was a fave of mine for many years; but SATV is a whole different element to me...
