The PSA1000 Analog Saturation Unit plugin is a modern recreation of a '90s classic analog guitar preamp which is used in recording studios all around the world.

It is used and "abused" for recording and characterizing not only guitars but also electric pianos, organs, synthesizers, electric basses and many other instruments.

The original unit has found its place even in the mix stage for processing all type of sounds, as drum rooms, percussions, vocals, kicks, snares and sound fx too.

For creating the PSA1000 Analog Saturation Unit plugin, Nembrini Audio has carefully modeled the original analog circuits and finely refined it by ear as all its products.

Nembrini Audio also adds new features that brings the PSA1000 Analog Saturation Unit plugin to modern days:

Independent controls for left and right channels with individual and global links:

  • Dry/Wet mix knob for both channels.
  • Mid/Side operation.
  • Spread circuit to widen the stereo field.
  • Analog Link circuit to simulate the difference between left and right channels as in real analog world.
  • Phase Reverse switch to take advantage of the original phase changes in the real analog unit when used in parallel.
  • In and Out level knobs for maximum versatility.

With the PSA1000 Analog Saturation Unit plugin Nembrini Audio also includes the PSA1000 Jr version which has the exact same distortion algorithm in a simplified interface that include the Dry/Wet knob and Phase Reverse switch to fully take advantage of its potential like famous mixing engineers as Tchad Blake, Dave Pensado, Andrew Scheps, Jacquire King and many others.

It's really good. I've been waiting for a Sansamp PSA clone in VST for a long time.
It sounds lot like a real sans amp and is usable on windows and mac in all formats. The stereo mid side stuff is neat and works well. The phase flip, and analog component variance is also very cool.


I find the dry wet knob to not be very useful because of the gain staging in the plugin. Both the Output and Level of the plugin effect the level of the dry signal for some reason.... so usually the dry signal ends up being way too quiet and. It would be good if we had a way of balancing the level of wet vs dry so the mix knob was more useful.

The CPU usage is pretty high. It seems this plugin is always oversampling by 2x or 4x? It would be cool to have an option to control oversampling. Sometimes I'm not concerned about Aliasing at all and would prefer the lower CPU hit, and sometimes I want it to be best possible quality.
