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.
The TSAR-1 has been designed with ease of use in mind. Instead of a myriad of controls, we gave the user interface five sliders and a couple of switched options. But you may very well find you never need to use even these simple controls. Because we included a solid bank of presets, which will cover most of your needs. The presets are clearly named for their intended use, so find a setting you like, maybe tweak a little - and you´re good to go
Predelay - Use it as a rhythmic effect or to carefully match the tail with the early reflections.
Time Longer - or shorter reverb tail. Where do you want to go today
Density - Smooth, modern and dense, or sparse, lush and vintage.
Tone - Dark or bright? No need to adjust dozens of knobs to get the character you need.
High Cut - Too much sizzle? Cut the highs.
Early Reflections Type Large, Medium or Small? What room do you want to place your tracks in?
Early Reflections Mix - Already got a good sounding room and just need some longer reverb? Turn down the earlies with the mix knob.
Diffusion - Need that extra smoothness on your snare?
Modulation - A vintage style chorus-y modulation, or a modern and classy modulation?
Reverb - Mix and Output Volume They just have to be there, right?
