TesslaPro is a signal saturator with added transient control.

The Tessla audio plugin series once started as a reminiscence to classic transformer based circuit designs of the 50s and 60s but without just being a clone stuck in the past. The PRO version has been made for mixing and mastering engineers working in the digital domain but always missing that extra vibe delivered by some highend analog devices.

TesslaPRO brings back the subtle artifacts from the analog right into the digital domain. It sligthly colors the sound, polishes transients and creates depth and dimension in the stereo field to get that cohesive sound we’re after. All the analog goodness in subtle doses: It’s a mixing effect intended to be used here and there, wherever the mix demands it.

The mkIII version is a technical redesign, further refined to capture all those sonic details while reducing audible distortions at the same time. It further blurs the line between compression and saturation and also takes aural perception based effects into account.

Not impressed. Quite subtle. High CPU usage. Makes annoying snaps and pops when I turn it on and off.

The new version takes AAAAGES to load sometimes in REAPER. I mean 20-30 seconds freeze. Sometimes it loads fast.

One of the best subtle saturators, colorizers, 3Dizers, whatever you wanna call it. Paid or free. Masterpiece. Thank you very much Bootsy!!!

The "Tape" setting is amazing. Subtle, but really adds something useful. Not your standard "static softclipping" saturator, but full of VoS magic! Hope Herbert will release the 64 bit version soon!

Gives a nice touch in the master or any track you want, I personaly recomend it to have a great punchy brass stabs.

Feed in good signal... it becomes better. Feed in bad noise... it still retains its badness, but it's more musical: appealing to the ears. Mastering tool.
