Description & Specs

Dist TUBE-CULTURE is an enhanced software version of a modern distortion classic, bringing authentic valve-powered warmth and harmonic character to your DAW production. Crank the heat in your mixes with studio-grade saturation and crunch in a few clicks.

Saturate your mix bus with responsive analog heat; scorch your instruments and stems with destructive distortion; enjoy the unmistakable character of tube-drive studio hardware in your DAW like never before. This is Dist TUBE-CULTURE.

Channeling tube character
Nothing saturates, colors, distorts, or breathes harmonic life into a sound quite like heated vacuum valves. Dist TUBE-CULTURE meticulously emulates this behavior for the most authentic virtual valve sound you could wish for.

Choose your temperature
Enjoy warm mix-gluing saturation, white-hot fuzz, and everything in between. Dist TUBE-CULTURE will respond to your projects with whatever heat you need.

For any sound
Enrich your guitar tracks, fatten your topline vocals, crush your drum transients, or roast your mix bus to serving temperature. This faithful emulation might just be the finishing touch that your production is looking for.

Tastefully enhanced
Overcome the limitations of studio hardware and go beyond analog circuitry with modernized features like gain compensation, post-drive EQ and expanded stereo processing. Old distortion, new tricks.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
