A couple of weeks ago. in a short conversation with Oscar from Softube, he mentioned a new product coming, quite different from what they had done ’til now. Here’s what he was talking about: Softube has just released the TSAR-1, an algorithmic reverb for native (VST/AU/RTAS) platforms, PPC Macs included.
We’ll hopefully test it in the next weeks, but now let’s read what they have to say about it.
“The TSAR-1 Reverb is not an emulation. It’s not a stock design. It’s not a static snapshot of a space. The TSAR-1 is a powerful, modern reverb algorithm. It’s alive and vibrant, it’s gentle and dreamy, and above all – it’s natural and believable. The TSAR-1 is the better-sounding alternative to the established, traditional reverb products. At a fraction of the price.”
If the image rendering above puzzles you, that’s just a 3d rendering for the brochure. The real plug-in interface is this one:
A fully functional 20 day demo can be downloaded from the official website. An iLok is required, also for the demo.
TSAR-1 Reverb is available today at the Softube web shop and at authorized Softube dealers at a price of $329, excl. VAT.
Last but not least, Softube has a new webstore, called More Is More. The concept is simple, buy more save more.
Good news for all existing customers: Softube is offering a voucher for up to 40% off to those that already own some of their plugs!
