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

Works as a standalone app, AudioUnit v3 effect, or Inter-App Audio effect

Great AUv3s, must buy.

I certainly owe an apology to Nembrini for dropping stars on my past review for a wrong reason:

A few months back none of Nembrini’s apps supported AUV3 parameter automation, however I checked today and this has definitely changed. When? No idea, I was sure it hadn’t but clearly I was wrong.

Ultimately, this was literally Nembrini’s only problem.

Your money is well spent here and will save you lots in terms of spending on hardware, definitely an incredible purchase.

I do have to say that the price ranges are a bit steep with some of their apps but ultimately they are top notch quality and really there is not much to compete with in the AUV3 realm.

Maybe someday there will be a cheaper option, but for the moment Nembrini not only is top quality, but remains your best bang for buck for good amp sounds on iOS especially since it supports AUV3.

Say goodbye to interapp guitars, which regardless of how nice the programs like Jamup Pro are, have become kind of useless imo ever since they decided not to support AUv3.

I’m also quite sure these AUv3s sounds far better than those apps so I’m glad I don’t ever need to use those again.

Congrats and thanks Nembrini, brilliant work.

Worth your money

This thing nails the Sansamp, and betters it with the things they added to make it more useful and versatile. I’d buy it again.

Nembrini has this amp sim thing nailed.
