The TesslaPRO audio processor is aimed to take the critically acclaimed TesslaSE signal saturator on to the next level and features some really exciting new and unique approach on signal saturation modeling. While TesslaSE has gotten famous for it’s ability to let audio transient information pass through (to a certain extend) TesslaPro is going to extend this further: The amount of untouched transient information can be dialed in variable. This way one is able to obtain full control on where signal saturation is going to happen and how such effects appear into a mix sonic wise.
The core algorithm is re-written in assembler, further optimized and runs now 4 times oversampled. On popular demand the DRIVE amount is now output level compensated and in addition there is more precise and detailed control on the reworked transformer style bass distortion.
Not enough, the user interface is completly redesigned by Patrick. He did it again and provided a really unique timeless interface which is clear, so fun to use and stands out on its very own. An awesome work!
A couple of bugfixes are included as well of course, e.g. the slow loading time issue which occured in some system configurations.
A release is targeted to Q2/2009 for PC and VST compatible systems.
About the future of TesslaSE: It won’t be discontinued at all and will be still available further on since so many folks swear on it. There will be a re-compiled, optimized and bug-fixed version appear right to the time when the Pro version is going to be realeased.
