A modern compression classic with a unique tube/solid-state circuit.

The Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor has been a studio mainstay since its introduction in the 1980s. Its trademark warmth and presence — as well as its intuitive interface and controls — have made this notoriously smooth sounding compressor integral to countless records for nearly three decades.

Developed by Softube, you can now track and mix with an exacting emulation of this modern tube/solid-state classic with the Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 DSP hardware and Apollo interfaces.

Gently smooth-out vocals, bass, and acoustic guitars with an industry-standard compressor

Add glue and cohesion to a drum bus or an entire mix

Easily dial-in parallel compression on a drum bus or mix bus with the plug-in-only Wet/Dry control

Smooth compression

Warm sound on the vocals .. but keeps them more present in the mix

Flattering compressor

.... adds warm and smooth sound or subtil warm distortion using saturation knob.
It regulates level fluctuations so unobtrusively, as I have never heard in any tool.
Great for acoustic instruments or clean guitars.
It would be great if ua would release the complete Softube Summit Audio Grand Channel (signal chain).
Simply well done. Thx.

Sounds and acts like hardware version

Great sounding compressor that I have used the hardware version of; Sounds great on acoustic guitars and basses. Sounds like better than Hardware Version.

Think of it as an LA2A with a different flavor

This thing is analog sounding as can be. Clean, clear, vibey. Softube has a way of really knowing how to make musical sounding stuff and this is no different. I use this to round things out and have no regrets. I've become a big fan of Softube and it runs great on the UAD platform.

Smooth leveling compression!

This one is so good. I never gave it a listen before, but when you want a cleaner style LA2A on vocals, this is the one to go for! You get a little bit of tube thickness and icing as well.

Great Plugin

Tiene un comportamiento extraño pero muy musical, me encanta con las guitarras elèctricas como que da màs peso en la zona baja

Clean and Smooth

I don't have the analog version to compare this to, but this offers very "clean" compression with a slight bit of warmth that I prefer, but not overpowering that it gets muddy.

Versatile and Useful

Really versatile piece of software. Can add rich warmth and body or mess it up a little. all while leveling material. A different feel and sidechain sound great.

Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor

I used this compressor on guitar and backup vocals and enjoyed the sound. It's a great tool to have.

Solid

I had to add this one to my other compressors because it’s different, more subtle. I can use it to tame a sound pretty good and put some saturation on it without wasting my time on other plugins. Love it.

Transparent Compression

This is a great tool to use on multiple sources. You can really push it without getting a nasty sound. Worth every dollar. Works in all generes

This compressor is so easy to use, a novice can use it effectively. I used it on my lead vocals and I hit it hard while tracking. Works great. Good price.
