The Summit Audio TLA-100A is the “set-and-forget” compressor, with a program-dependent nature that works with the signal to provide optimal performance without constant tweaking. Its ease-of-use and warm, rich sound is why it is still, after more than a quarter of a century, regarded as an industry standard for mixing, tracking and live usage. Both tube and solid state technologies are combined in this innovative design which has made the TLA-100A a tried-and-true choice for vocals, in addition to bass, drums and guitar.

  • The first and only Summit Audio plug-in
  • Easy to use
  • Built-in parallel compression and detector filtering
  • Each and every component carefully modeled.
  • Modeled output distortion, easily controlled with the Saturation knob.
  • Extremely analog behavior of frequencies, phase, distortion, attack, release, etc.
“Softube has outdone itself. The TLA-100A plug-in is a testament to what can be achieved in hardware modeling when attention is paid to the smallest details of design.”
