The hybrid solid state and tube technology produces smooth sounding and warm compression. This plug-in brings the original TLA-100A sound to you, but also adds a modern section with features such as parallel compression, saturation and a low cut. Now you can bring this studio standard to your computer with the Softube Summit TLA-100A Compressor plug-in

The smooth program-dependent nature of the TLA-100A works with your signal to give optimal performance without having to constantly babysit the compressor, making it the set-and-forget compressor.

Love this compressor, Analog goodness!

Been on my wish list for a while, with this price drop it's a no brainier!! Love the CL1b too, both much better than CL2A.

Going through so many bad versions of 1076's, LA2A's, 160's, I've finally found a warm, slow compressor plugin I'm willing to stick up for. Its so spot on to the real thing it makes it hard to justify thinking about getting an actual TLA100. It also doesn't use a ton a resources which is nice, you can put this on a lot of tracks (depending on your CPU) without worrying too much. If you want a compressor that actually sounds real and good, this is the one.

sounds like the real thing to me!

I've use the TLA-100A in my vocal for a few years and must say this sounds like the real thing. Smooth and warm. And the extra features makes it better than the hardware.

Impressive plugg-in! Very warm and "real feel" compressor plug-in. Great on bass guitars, vocal, kick and snares!...LOVE IT!
