Algorithmic reverberation

TSAR-1 stands for True Stereo Algorithmic Reverb Model 1:

- True Stereo
Both the left and right channels contribute uniquely to the left and right outputs, so the right channel doesn't only affect the right channel but also the left side. Unlike many other reverbs, which might have a two different engines for the left and right sides, or just one engine with different outputs for the left and right sides, a true stereo reverb needs four unique engines to process the audio. This is true stereo, and this is what the TSAR-1 engine does.

- Algorithmic Reverb
Even if there are tons of convolution reverbs out there, and anyone with a simple piece of software can create their own set of impulses, there are nothing that compares to a well designed algorithmic reverb.

- Algorithmic Reverb
Even if there are tons of convolution reverbs out there, and anyone with a simple piece of software can create their own set of impulses, there are nothing that compares to a well designed algorithmic reverb.
An impulse response is indeed a very good finger print of a room's acoustics, and does a good job in mimicking a sampled space if you have a completely dry recording. You'll get all the echoes, tails and coloration of that room. An algorithmic reverb is on the other hand designed to add space or ambience to a recording without coloring the dry signal and without interfering with the already recorded ambience. The ability to tailor the reverb to co-exist with the recorded ambience is one of the strengths of an algorithmic reverb, and one very strong reason to why you will always need well designed algorithmic reverbs.

Key features
- True Stereo Algorithm
- Extraordinary versatility
- Comprehensive user interface
- Modern and powerful high-end reverb
- Extensive preset library
- Comes bundled with the TSAR-1R Reverb (same algorithm, but focuses solely on natural spaces. And with only three parameters: Time, Predelay and Color)

Windows 8, Windows 7 (latest Service Pack, 32/64 Bit)
Tsar-1 Tsar-1 v 2.1.6 Apr 5, 2014 MacOS X Intel
  • Updated with GUI bug fixes. Fixes problems with line breaks in dialogs, and affects track meters.

  • Console 1 OSD: Changed help texts in All mode, changed ugly-looking ellipsis in Group text.

  • Console 1 OSD: The left (instead) of right meter is used in mono mode. Looks better that way.

  • Console 1 OSD: Curves filtering now as fast as the rest of the GUI.

  • Apply pre-2.1.6 Console 1 overhead optimizations to other plug-ins

  • Summit Audio EQF-100: Implement curve display for Console 1
