11 VST/AU guitar, amp, and pedal plug-ins based on some of the most popular gear out there.
Focusrite's Guitar FX Plug-in Suite includes eleven professional VST/AU plug-ins ideal for the guitarist who does computer recording. The software includes five popular guitar amp models and four distortion pedal effects courtesy of Italian software company Overloud who are experts in the field of accurate guitar amp modeling. A 'hot tuna' guitar tuner and 'smart' hum remover are also provided.
The amp models include plug-ins based on the Vox AC30, Marshall JCM900, Fender Twin, MESA Boogie Rectifier, and Fender Bassman. The pedal models include plug-ins based on the Boss DS-1, Ibanez Tube Screamer, Electro-Harmonix Big Muff, Dunlop's Fuzz Face.
The amp and pedal models use Overloud's renowned analog-modeling technology, which faithfully reproduces every detail of an analog tone. It also ensures perfect reproduction of parameter behavior, so you always feel like you're controlling the real hardware. Thanks to Overloud's expertise, each component of the schematic has its own mathematical model. After this rather raw scientific step, the resulting tone is fine-tuned by ear. Unlike many modeling companies, Overloud doesn't use the more standard DSP techniques to obtain a tone that only vaguely resembles the original one. Instead, they use incorporate custom developed DSP techniques so their plug-in software reproduces every detail of the original tone.
Finally, each Guitar FX Suite plug-in provides a host of initial presets, providing a number of great tones for you to audition immediately. You can also save and recall custom presets, building a vast library of your own customized tones over time.
