Tonelux Tilt and Tilt Live

USD 89


Go from shimmering bright to warm and wide with a twist of a knob!

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.


"My new addiction is the Tonelux Tilt. How brilliant is Paul Wolff?"

Joe Chiccarelli

"This Tilt EQ really is a quick, one knob fixer. I'm finding it very easy to get a fast, great sounding result, and a lot of times, at festivals and such, speed is of the essence. The Loudness curve does exactly what it's supposed to as well. Cool stuff!"

John Kerns
FOH Engineer (Sum 41, No Doubt)

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.

What's Included

Tonelux Tilt

Tonelux Tilt is a one-knob fix for most issues, with all the controls you need to start your mixes off right. Although, you may find it's all your track requires to sit perfectly in your mix.

Tonelux Tilt Live

Tonelux Tilt Live is a special version of the Tonelux Tilt plug-in. Based on feature requests from live sound engineers, we optimized Tonelux Tilt Live for live systems.

Tonelux Tilt and Tilt Live for Amp Room

Tonelux Tilt and Tilt Live offer a new slant for Amp Room, our pro audio guitar and bass platform. Combine them with effects, amps, cabs, and pedals to easily create studio-quality, record-ready tones.

"Tonelux Tilt is everything I need to start off my mixes. Whenever a sound is too dull or bright, I'm capable of fixing it in a split of a second rather than minutes. Tilt should be a mandatory tool for every single DAW!"

Koen Heldens
Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Missy Elliott, Timbaland



"Tilt can help you get sounds so fast you'll feel like you're cheating."

Tape Op Magazine


"Tonelux Tilt really helps me to get a mix working quickly right out the gate."
