Incorporate vacuum tube devices
This app practically begs for the inclusion of vacuum tube components! Its so close to being the perfect electronics app. I think generic models for a diode, triode, tetrode, and pentode would be a great addition to this app. A user could get all the data parameters they need from The data sheets for a particular type of tube and fill in the variables which distinguish one type from another.
This has been a requested feature for 4 years so I apologize they still haven’t been incorporated.
This would help me, Im designing a guitar Tube/Vacuum Amp and would be great to at least model the pre-amp 12AX7 stage
Now that Korg is producing new low voltage vacuum tubes I think this becomes a necessity http://korgnutube.com/en/faq/
I would gladly fork over twice the price for tube functionality.
Maybe three or four times. Analog circuit designers are notorious for spending way too much money on tubes.
Any time frame on when this will be added? It's been 6 years now.

I agree, if this app gets support for Vacuum Tubes, I'll buy it! Analogue is all I work on.
The growth in tube amps and the interest in them should spell out the need and the profit as an app that could fill a massive hole in the market.
Maybe if you joined with electronic toolbox app all the references are already done just need to simulate signal
I would buy it if it had tubes options

It's THE feature I'm waiting for.
One can use a n-MOSFET as substitute with 2 resistors of the same value (1-5M) from gate to drain and source, as a substitute.
It will not clip symmetrically though, but acts just like a tube below saturation.
A push-pull configuration with p- and n-MOSFET (high voltage types) a cap (between 10-100pF) and some resistors will be a substitute which you can even put into your amplifier. (symmetrical clipping).
I did it once, and it sounded OK - but produces only even harmonics.

I wood also like to have this feature in the app

One more vote for valves/tubes. I modify guitar amps and design vintage style equipment.
An app like this would give me many more hours at the bench.
Perhaps a few popular tubes and, perhaps, NTC thermistors?
Let me know when it's available, please.

This is not just a requested feature, this will drive sales! You know what would be even cooler? Allow the component devices to be modeled from test equipment data: put a linear regression ML module and a bulk data field to allow example components of a high and low quality (or even failing) parameters.
This one of the most asked features (3 requests) many votes and still no work in progress?
