STR-X by arborealaudio 0 (0)

str-x-1

Custom digital guitar amp head, featuring a one-knob pedal-style distortion, pre- and power-amplifier gain stages, and a custom tone stack.

The STR-X was built to be a simple but powerful, digitally-oriented guitar amp, one which isn’t based off of any pre-existing analog models. Tonally, it is capable of high gain, modest crunch, and cleaner tones with some added heat.

Mode: The Mode control in the center of the amp changes the crossover point that feeds the pre-amp distortion (after the “X” pedal-style distortion). Normal will give you a solid low-end, with retained clarity in the mids and highs even when cranked. Thick drops the crossover point lower, resulting in greater intermodulation of the distorted signal, and a fuzzy tone ready for a sludge or doom sound. Finally, Open separates all of the low-end from the mids and highs for a tight and bright tone, perfect for fast palm-muted playing or any situation where the low-end of the other two modes might be excessive.

X: This mysterious knob works like a one-knob distortion pedal (inspired by the Ibanez Tube Screamer), with filters that focus the tone on the mid-range the further it’s driven—good for an extra bump before the amp, dialing in a lead tone that cuts through everything else, or for tightening the bass on Thick mode while still remaining truly Thick.

Gain: This is the pre-amp drive section, ranging from not-quite-clean to a heavy wall of distortion. At high gain, the texture varies significantly, depending on the Mode used. This stage generates asymmetric distortion and both even and odd harmonics.

Master: This knob provides the output gain of the amp, with added distortion as well. Although not claiming to emulate any particular type of tube, it does generate the symmetric, odd-harmonic distortion you’d expect from pentode tubes. With low pre-amp gain, you can use this knob to dial in fairly clean tones down low, and bright crunch up high.

Nero by MaxSynths[win][VSTI][x86][FREE] 0 (0)

Nero is a mono synthesizer for bass, lead and sequenced sounds.

Its strength is in the OSC section which features two internally synced oscillators capable of creating, thanks also to the modulation options, TB alike sounds, evolving drones fat basses and detuned lead sounds in a breeze. The filter section features a zero delay feedback filter and the audio engine has been tweaked to provide a great impact on the low frequencies.

The “Pattern Sequencer” is another key feature and a great source of inspiration for the modern producer: it features 64 original sequences that can be used as they are or, by editing the play options (play mode, length, etc), it’s possible to create totally new bass/seq lines.

  • Synced Oscillators.
  • Pattern Sequencer with 64 original phrases.
  • Zero Delay feedback filter.
  • 128 inspiring preset sounds.
  • Extensive modulation options.
  • Mapping file for BCR-2000.
