Softube Summit Audio TLA-100A $229 and 50% off their plugins

I love the sound of the Summit TLA-100A and have used it for tracking and mixing. Dialing in just the right amount of compression is easy as 1-2-3. 
Now Softube has released the plugin version of the TLA-100 with some additional features. Can't wait to try it on the mix I'm doing today. They're also still doing their 50% off sale on the rest of their plugins.

From Softube's website:

The Summit Audio TLA-100A is the"set-and-forget" compressor, with a program-dependent nature that works with the signal to provide optimal performance without constant tweaking. Its ease-of-use and warm, rich sound is why it is still, after more than a quarter of a century, regarded as an industry standard for mixing, tracking and live usage. Both tube and solid state technologies are combined in this innovative design which has made the TLA-100A a tried-and-true choice for vocals, in addition to bass, drums and guitar.
While being true to the simplicity of the original, additional features have been added to the plug-in that bring the TLA-100A capabilities up-to-date with modern production techniques. The plug-in features: Parallel Compression, Saturation Control and Low Cut Filtering, expanding the possibilities of this classic workhorse, while maintaining the sound characteristics expected from this venerable compressor.
