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.

Linköping, Sweden (May 3, 2010) -- Softube is now shipping the Valley People Dyna-mite for native formats (VST/AU/RTAS). The Valley People Dyna-mite is a unique limiter/expander with options to do gating, ducking, keying and de-essing.


The Dyna-mite was originally designed in the '80s in an ambitious attempt to incorporate the knowledge of previous decades into one Swiss Army knife solution. Building upon the original design are additions like the Valley People proprietary VCA and the Anticipatory Release Computation, which plays a big part in the unique sound of the Dyna-mite.

The Dyna-mite is useful as both a problem solver and 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 showcases Dyna-mite's very special character and inspires 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. Softube is offering a fully functional 20-day demo on their website.
