Nembrini Audio just released their free Big Stuff Harmonic Distortion-Sustain plugin, modeled on the classic Electro Harmonix Big Muff pedal, an incredibly popular fuzz pedal beloved by indie rockers to metalheads. Now, this classic fuzzy tone can just as well be applied to synths and organs as well, of course.
The plugin is available as VST3, VST3, AAX and AU and for Mac, Windows and iOS.
Here’s SuperCrunch – a free guitar amp VST plugin by Linda Audio. It doesn’t aim at replicating any specific real hardware but instead just goes for the natural sound of a classic tube amplifier, ranging from sparkling clean to gentle crunch and wild rock/metal distortion.
There’s control for input/output gain, drive and brightness and two channels (crunch and lead), cabinet simulation, gate as well as the possibility to blend in your guitar’s clean signal and a 8 band equalizer to help dial in your wanted tone.
SuperCrunch is only available as VST/VST3 for Windows, no Mac or Linux versions and is completely free, unless you decide to donate a few bucks to help support the development of plugins like these.
Here’s Voltage Amps by Waves, a set of seven guitar and bass amplifier VST/AU plugins (five for guitar, two for bass) designed to help you find that special tone as fast as possible.
The guitar/bass amp plugins comes with 400 presets by musicians and producers like Butch Vig (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) as well as the producers for stars like Taylor Swift and Doja Cat. The ‘Focus Control’ knob is there to help you match the amp performance to your own guitar and pickups.
Each of the 5 guitar amps delivers an iconic sound, based on classic American and British amps—clean to crunchy, jangly to high-gain aggressive. The bass amps run the gamut from smooth vintage to full-spectrum modern.
The guitar amps are: Silverado, Blue Flame, Aggro, Arena and Royal-X. The bass amps are named Dark Mass and Vintage Velvet. They’re available for Windows and Mac, in VST3, AAX and AU format.
