Question Looking for tube design software.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to send me a copy, or point me to a download page for tube amp design software like TubeCad.

Thanks

Default Free trial version

You can download the free trial version of Beige Bag software which can do more than just tube simulation.
Go to www.beigebag.com and select downloads. You will find the LITE version there.
Have fun.

Go to AES and type tubecad into the search engine $US77 for Tubecad and SE Amp cad. Only place you can buy it.
Don't bludge free copies of it as John has been really generous with his knowledge and it's cheap and simple to use.

You can get the free PS designer from www.duncanamps.com

Thanks for the tip on the software. I just ordered it and I am looking forward to getting it.

Sometimes it pays to shell out a few dollars for a complete working system that you don't have to worry about expiring in 30 days.

Default Buy it Yourself

I have both the Tube Cad and SEamp Cad and both are excellent.
They are good for experienced folk and great learning tools too and the learning curve is way below the effort to learn pspice.

Broskie is a great resource and does so much for FREE!

I hope no one sends this guy a knock-off.

Spend a few bucks and support the cause.

If you were asking strictly for stuff "like" Tubecad and not a freebee I apologize in advance.

Cheers

Hi,

Tried several design packages. The only one really useful that remains is the good old PSpice. Working student versions are freely available on the net as well as PSpice tube models. I am myself quite happy with MicroCap 7. But it takes some time to get used to it AND you need to understand what is going on in an electronic circuit.

Note that such packages can be very useful at the design stage but they are never the real thing!

Cheers
