The Freqport FT-1 Freqtube Multi-Instance Analog Hardware Processor is a revolutionary tube-based hardware unit that enables you to run plug-ins through real analog components, seamlessly integrating them into your favorite DAW. Freqtube's multi-instance analog plug-ins create a brand new category of products that merge the warmth of analog sound with the convenience of digital, streamlining your workflow.

Freqtube is the child of collaboration between Australian and Danish specialists, representing the culmination of audio technology innovation. The platform offers a solution to the mathematical equations that generate and process audio, which can make audio sound flat and dull. With Freqport, you get all of the benefits of real analog processing without any of the hassles or limitations that come with connecting and using traditional analog equipment.

The Freqtube couldn't be easier to use. Just plug it in with a single USB cable, power up, open the interface, and start tweaking. You can even save, store and recall Freqtube settings inside your DAW, and return to your project later with no hassle, as the setups remain unchanged between sessions! Freqtube also features assignable knobs, enabling you to touch and feel the creative process.

Freqtube also includes a multi-instance powerhouse VST, AU, and AAX plug-in with a perfect virtual representation of the hardware that operates with up to two stereo, or four mono, plug-in instances. The ultra-low-jitter audio synchronization between host and hardware ensures bit-perfect audio, while the internal, professional-grade 32-bit audio converters running up to 192 kHz provide transparent audio translation.

With Freqtube, you can bring real analog processors into your mix while keeping all the benefits of digital control. The multiple analog processing circuits allow more than one audio signal to be processed at the same time within your digital workflow, something that is impossible with single-circuit analog processors.
