TSB-1 Tyrant Screamer is a digital emulation of an overdrive pedal for guitar.
It has been developed to accurately model its real hardware counterpart, built for Benevolent guitarists Hadi Sarieddine and Mohammed Gad by Ignite Amps in 2012.
The TSB-1 core circuit is inspired by the most famous green 808 overdrive pedal, with additional features to increase its versatility and make it suitable for extremely down tuned guitars. It can easily add dirt and bite to clean and overdriven guitar tones, as well as make the amplifier lead tone sound tighter, more focused and more responsive to picking, avoiding low-end muddiness and high-end fizz.
Every single component on the signal path of the real analog circuit has been taken into account and modeled in the best possible way to match the original sound, keeping an eye to CPU performances and real-time playability at the same time. The TSB-1 is meant to be used as an overdrive pedal for live playing, tracking or mixing inside hosts capable of VST or AU Plug-Ins support.
