We are very happy to announce the release of Blue Cat's Free Amp, a brand new amp simulation plug-in that is entirely free!

Using the Destructor dynamic distortion engine that is also used inside the Axiom software, Blue Cat's Free Amp offers three amp models for a wide range of guitar tones. And you can also download 20 additional free amp presets by Hans Van Even for the plug-in.

Check it out, it's a simple free download: no registration required, no limitation and no dongle, it is definitely a Free Amp!

Do these free amps need a cab?

No, they have a built-in matched cabinet filter (a different simulation for each amp). It cannot be disabled, but turning the "Tone" control to 100% should be enough if you want to use your own cabinet simulation after the pug-in.

Finally stopped being lazy and plugged in the geetar to have a go with this.

The M****all and rectifier modes are nice enough, but the clean amp (which is of course the true test of any amp - can it do the jangle..?)..... :love:

Made my Shitenbacker crap £100 12 string sound bloody marvellous. Instant Stones Roses. :hihi:

Nice one!

To be honest, I did somewhat steal the idea from a friend anyway, who is the proud owner of a' Crapocaster' :hihi:

That reminds me, I should show off my new Lace alumitone pickups in my 8-string with these amps. (Definitely not a shit-o-caster).

I can't speak for the Crapocaster, but after tweaking the action and doing the old trick of tuning it down a semitone and using a capo, the Shitenbacker can do quite a good jangle. Just the bridge pickup into NI's VC2A compressor then into one of clean the presets of your Free Amp;

I still get the impression though that the build quality is 'questionable', and that if I was to drop it or kick it over (as one is wont to do from time to time...) it would fall apart into little bits.. :hihi:
