Softube has announced the availability of their Valley People Dyna-mite emulation plug-in for VST, AU and RTAS hosts. Dyna-mite is a unique limiter/expander with options to do gating, ducking, keying and de-essing.

The original Dyna-mite hardware was designed in the 80’s in an ambitious attempt to incorporate the knowledge of previous decades into one swiss army knife solution. From the design comes several innovations like the Valley People proprietary VCA and the Anticipatory Release Computation, which plays a big part in the unique sound of the Dyna-mite.

Today, the Dyna-mite is just as usable as back then, as a problem solver but also very much as a creative tool. Use it as a limiter to squash drums or to get the snap into a bass track. Use it as an expander to enhance the dynamics of a track. Use it in sidechain mode to duck or follow another track. Every application breathes of the Dyna-mite‘s very special character and inspires to new sounds.

The Softube Valley People Dyna-mite plug-in is the first and only software recreation of the Dyna-mite that is officially endorsed by Valley People.

On the Mac, Dyna-mite requires OS X 10.4 or later, an Intel or PowerPC processor (G4 or higher), 512 MB of RAM and an iLok USB key.

Valley People Dyna-mite is available today at the Softube web shop and at authorized Softube dealers at an introductory price of $229, excl. VAT. The introductory offer will last throughout May and thereafter the price will be $279. A fully functional 20 day demo is also available.
