Download: Youlean Loudness Plugin
Take an ordinary sound and transform it to something extraordinary with Tantra. This is a rock n roll plugin for psychedelic FX. Plenty of excellent presets and you can even acquire a superb expansion pack. Be warned that there is endless hours of entertainment awaiting you with the usage of this plugin.
One thing to take note of is that if you run multiple instances of Tantra at the same time, it can be CPU intensive. A workaround for that is to render the audio into a new audio with the FX imprinted or to bypass the plugin when it is not in use.
USD $69 or $ USD 99 for expansion pack
