TSE Audio has announced the release of TSE808 version 2, an audio plug-in simulation of a TubeScreamer pedal, modeled/programmed in C++ by onQel (aka John Adrian Johansen).

TSE808 v2

Leaving the 1.x versions behind, this new version introduces a new small and simple GUI, the actual modeling is re-done to improve accuracy with respect to it’s hardware counterpart.

Additional features such as DIY functionality and solver-precision is removed, the internal solver is now locked to 1 uV (microvolt).

TSE808 v2.0 features

  • Input Level: Controls the incoming (guitar) signal. Value of 1.0 = +0dB and 2.0 = +6dB
  • Quality switch: ‘LO’ and ‘HI’ setting. HI setting removes additional aliasing.
  • Stereo switch: Process two guitars at once. They must be hard-panned left/right to avoid bleed between channels!

The TSE808 is available to download for Windows PC (32/64bit VST) as freeware.
