Application for Windows PC

Get the “DCTriode” free PC app, more complete and powerful than the Web site

I maintain a Windows PC application “DCTriode”, freely available for download and usage (freeware license): more comfortable, more circuits, more tube models, more features than the Web version. Pure freeware, fully functional, without any advertisements, telemetry, spy or intentional virus-like functions.

You may download its user manual to figure out what are its features or see some screen copies
