The namesake STA (Summing Tube Amplifier) technology that the STA Effects bundle of summing tube processing plug-ins and STA Preamp plug-in both benefit from features two signal paths — one processed by modulation or spectral change, the other remaining unprocessed. Ultimately, those two signals are mixed via vacuum tube circuitry models, making more ordinary-sounding effects like flanging or phasing sound exceptionally extraordinary with warming audio attributes like no other!
On that very note, all six STA Effects plug-ins — including the self-explanatory STA Chorus, STA Delay, STA Enhancer, STA Flanger, STA Phaser, and STA Preamp — perform pleasingly to the ear, enabling a beautiful balance of flexibility and familiarity for discerning DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) users, thanks to several superb-sounding saturation characteristics available at a painless press of an associated virtual button: P (Presence — higher amount of mid-high frequencies to better cut through the mix), V (Vintage — smoother highs and more even harmonics), B (Brown — an almost flat frequency response with only light high-frequency rolloff and attractive higher harmonic punch), W (White — higher amount of higher frequencies with balanced ratio between the even and odd harmonics), and L (LoFi — less low and high frequencies).
STA Effects can be seen and heard in an informative introductory video
Anyone seeking superb-sounding saturation characteristics without wishing to break the bank need not look any further — all the more so thanks to Audified’s attractive 50% discount offer on STA Effects and STA Preamp, priced to fly at $64.00 USD and $24.00 USD, respectively.

About Audified (www.audified.com)
Audified is the premier brand of privately-owned Boskovice-based DISK Multimedia, s.r.o. in the Czech Republic, created to develop specialised audio applications, as well as handling the company’s high-end hardware product portfolio. Pioneering the development of audio applications for live (realtime) performance, as well as developing the first audio effects plug-ins for Apple’s Mac OS X, the company created some of the first plug-ins for Power|Core, TC Electronic’s hardware-accelerated DSP platform, prompting the Danish developer’s then-PR Manager Thomas Valter to comment, “Our two companies have been working closely together on various projects, and we are very satisfied with the products that have been a result of our cooperation.” Consequently, the company returned to its host application and audio effects developmental roots in 2007 by branding itself with the Audiffex appellation to resourcefully reflect that directional change. Credentials apart, Audified is not just a for-profit business, however; its parental company clearly cares about the future of audio software/hardware development, developing partnerships with both Janacek Academy of Music and Performing Arts (JAMU) in Brno, Czech Republic — realising a research project to bring modern audio engineering technologies to music education, and also Brno University of Technology, one of the Czech Republic’s leading research and teaching institutions — working with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication Technologies on scientific projects. Participating in organising entry exams and teaching at these highly-respected higher education establishments has helped establish the first specialised studies of audio engineering in the Czech Republic. In keeping with spreading the (audio engineering) word, Audified has helpfully seen fit to recently release a range of free plug-ins, available from here: http://shop.audified.com/collections/products/free#tags
