The Tonelux Tilt plug-in is a fast and easy way of making a track sit better in a mix or make it sound ‘warmer’ or ‘cooler’. It’s also perfect in a live situation where you need to tweak the whole mix to adjust for ear fatigue.
A filter on steroids

Created in partnership with original Tonelux designer Paul Wolff
Includes two versions: Tilt and Tilt Live, optimized for live sound engineers
It couldn’t be simpler
You may want to put Tonelux Tilt first on all your channels. It includes all the controls you need for a quick and rough setting before you get into the details — and it’s quite possible you will find that Tilt was all your track needed to find its place in the mix.
A joint effort
The Tilt plug-in is a joint development effort between Tonelux designer Paul Wolff and Softube, bringing the famous Tonelux sound to the digital world. The innovative Tilt design was first featured on the Tonelux MP1a discrete mic preamp module and has been a godsend for engineers and producers that need to take control of their sound in a fast and effective manner.
The Tilt filter
The Tilt filter does precisely what the name says — if you activate it and turn the control knob clockwise, it will attenuate the lows and boost the highs. Go counterclockwise, and the opposite happens — the sound gets fatter and darker. Turn on or off the Loud switch to make the effect stronger or back to keep it more subtle. So by the twist of a single knob, you give your sound a basic and nice sounding frequency trimming.
High and low pass filters
Move on to the gentle and natural sounding high and low pass filters, that are sweepable and switchable from -6 dB to -12 dB per octave. Finally, you will find a polarity reversal switch and a gain knob. See? All you need for a basic rough setting of each and every channel! Softube’s model of Tonelux Tilt also includes modeling of the transformer found in the Tonelux MP1a mic preamp. The transformer adds a subtle distortion for bass frequencies which fattens up the low end of a track.
Also included: Tilt Live
A special ‘Live’ version of the Tilt plug-in is included, which is optimized for Digidesign VENUE and other live systems and contains features requested by live sound engineers.
