You must wonder if anyone ever purchases anything at list price from these outfits and, if they do, are they the same the people who routinely respond to emails from Nigerian princes. Nomad Factory is one of those brands. Smaller sub-bundles and individual plug-ins have also been severely discounted during these sales.
Blue Tubes Bundle V3
Worth considering 2 stars or better: Suited to specific needs 1 star or less: The Effects Pack helps cater to your more creative side featuring a chorus, a phaser, an echo, a stereo imager, an analog delay, and a valve driver. The analog delay can be set to tempo-match your session, giving it an obvious useful edge over classic analog hardware, and the chorus provides Leslie and auto-pan effects. The phaser offers a selection of 4-, 6-, 8-, or stage filters in order to create vintage or modern phasing effects.
Nomad Factory plug-ins support the usual popular formats: We did have to download each of the plug-in packages individually, though.
Some aspects of the interfaces are geared towards more experienced engineers — most of the inserts have a classic, analog look containing all the usable knobs you’d like while limiting the modern graphics that allow you to visualize exactly what you’re doing to your source audio. With most of these plug-ins, however, you will find a very useful selection of presets that act as a great starting point and help level the playing field for less experienced engineers trying to achieve a pro sound.
In addition, one plug-in in particular, the BT Equalizer GEQ12, makes for very simple operation by using a familiar graphical EQ interface that everyone is familiar with. Features within the chorus and delay effects, for example, provide a lot of flexibility and customization. Each of the plug-ins also contains great presets that are easily adjusted. Novice engineers can learn the effects very easily simply by spinning the knobs and doing a little experimentation — they are set up much like familiar analog guitar pedals.
More advanced engineers will enjoy the familiar feel and ease of execution. Sound Where the Blue Tubes Bundle makes you work a little harder due to its classic look it more than pays off in the sound quality — this is great sounding stuff!
As working music professionals it is common for our reviewers to take products out of the MusicPlayers. Knowing the success we’ve had with previous Nomad Factory studio tools we felt comfortable trying this package out on some commercial mixes.
Emily Eddey’s album Rush Emmerik Records was mixed predominantly in the box using many of the inserts from this bundle. The Blue Tubes Bundle lived up to its name with warm analog sounds coming through the speakers lending itself perfectly to the feel of the album being mixed.
One of the shining stars in the effects package was the Oilcan Echo, which had a fairly advanced interface but created a very warm tone and great echo that was difficult to recreate when testing it against other plug-ins.
This plug-in worked great when paired with vocal tracks. The Valve Driver is a unique sounding overdrive with many usable applications, capable of creating sounds ranging from heavy distortion to overheated tubes. Holding true to the Blue Tubes name, this plug-in allowed us to virtually throw a towel over the amp without having to wait for our tubes to heat up.
The Analog Trackbox was also extremely useful in growing the sound of the project being mixed. This useful studio tool managed to find its way onto a wide array of source sounds during our testing and production mixing. We found it especially useful and applicable to the mix project when used on kick and snare drum tracks, as well as on acoustic and electric guitars.
With all of those knobs and options, it certainly appears a little intimidating at first, but it was actually very familiar and a fairly easy tool to master. Because this channel strip plug-in contains compression, EQ, gate, and tube coloration in one place, it allowed us to adjust many aspects of our source audio simultaneously, zeroing in on exactly what we wanted to adjust without jumping around too much. The results were clean and warm tones throughout.
Documentation and Product Support Nomad Factory makes the Blue Tubes Bundle available immediately via download directly from their website. Everything we downloaded and tested worked as planned so we did not have any need to contact the manufacturers for specific support during our testing.
Documentation is provided with each download in a PDF document. The documentation did a great job explaining the use of each plug-in, and also offered some nice tips that less-experienced engineers will appreciate. Contact Information.

Still Rockin’ After All These Years
The Blue Tubes series is designed to have the sonic character of valve tube gear, although they are original ideas and not emulations of famous hardware. The lower section houses four more modules. This is where much of the character and sonic colour lives.
