Softube began shipping the Summit Audio TLA-100A compressor plug-in for native platforms (VST/VST3/AU/RTAS; both 32 & 64-bit). This latest addition to Softube’s extensive line of vintage-flavored plug-ins captures the hardware TLA-100A’s unique sound and performance with uncanny accuracy, and also includes new features designed for the modern DAW production environment.
The Summit Audio TLA-100A is the “set-and-forget” compressor. Its ease of use and smooth, program-dependent sound is why, after more than 25 years, the TLA-100A is still an industry-standard compressor for mixing, tracking and live sound. Both tube and solid-state technologies are combined in its innovative design, making the TLA-100A a tried-and-true choice for vocals, bass, drums and guitar.
In addition to faithfully modeling the original Summit TLA hardware, Softube has added several modern convenience features to the plug-in, including parallel compression, low cut sidechain filtering, and an adjustable output distortion control.
From now until November 16, 2011, Softube’s superbly detailed rendering of Summit’s classic hardware compressor is available at authorized North American Softube dealers for the introductory price of only $199.99 (approximate street)—a 20% savings.
