The TSAR-1 reverb by Softube combines the classy sounds of modern reverb styles with the musicality of vintage old-school reverb units, to give you a phenomenally detailed and versatile engine that adds depth and space to any sound source. TSAR-1 stands for True Stereo Algorithm Reverb, the secret behind this plug-in's magnificently wide spacial effect. Standard reverb controls and an incredibly user-friendly interface make the TSAR-1 extremely versatile and give it a familiar feel. You also get 41 amazing presets, covering both vintage and modern styles and addressing everything from vocals to drums. Best of all, even though the TSAR-1 reverb rivals even the big-name hardware reverbs out there, its low price tag makes it accessible to almost everyone.

Incredible Verb

Expensive but well worth it. If I could only have one reverb plugin this would be it.

Great Reverb

Recommended to me by my Sweetwater Engineer. This is a standard reverb in my projects. I prefer using the softube for Vocals. Natural and warm sounding. Easy to dial in. Not my go-to for extreme digital reverb. This is all natural analog ambience for tasteful reverb. Use it on guitar and other instruments as well. The EQ features are not as precise as i would like but it is easy and fun to use.

Awesome Reverb

Love this reverb and the price point. Choose this over the Lexicon because it sounded better (imho) and had a unique sound organized into vintage and modern. There's a Lexicon preset and it sounds very close to the Lexicon.

Flexible, fun, and it sounds fantastic

This reverb was the missing ingredient in my mixes. It creates a wonderful variety of spaces, all the way from old plates to drum rooms, and all can be created convincingly with the quick movement of a mercifully limited set of parameters. As nerdy as this may sound, the included documentation is one of my favorite perks - it guides you through every parameter, and really teaches you the function of each knob in terms of how it will effect your source sound, as well as your overall mix. This will be my go-to reverb for a long-time to come!

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

The Softube TSAR-1 is hands-down my favorite in-the-box reverb. Extreme flexibility, but very easy to dial in, which is critical for any engineer. Everything from plates, halls, rooms, and even built in modulation. In my opinion, it easily rivals any hardware reverb out there.
