Overview

A select few guitar amps become legends by being a key sonic component of countless hit records and part of the signature tone of a myriad of revered guitarists. Mesa Boogie's Dual Rectifier is one such amp. Unlike other legendary amp circuits, this amp is not only known for a single sound but rather an incredibly wide range of tones- from jazzy cleans to warm crunch to singing overdrive to high gain sounds. Brainworx has now lovingly recreated this legend in plugin form with the bx_megadual.

Not only is the tonal soul of the original captured, but so are all the features which give it such a wide sonic pallet. With three separate channels, eight tone modes, the ability to simulate reduced voltage to the output transformer (Variac) and more, the bx_megadual is perhaps the most versatile guitar amp plugin emulation on the market.

As anyone who regularly records electric guitars will tell you, getting a great tone with a real amp in the studio ain't easy. It's a complicated process involving setting up expensive microphones, preamps and outboard gear and requires lots of experience, or at least a lot of trial and error. The bx_megadual plugin includes 64 Impulse Responses (IRs), which include a dizzying array of guitar cabinets, high-end microphones and other studio gear. Dirk Ulrich (Owner/CEO of Brainworx) was a rock producer for 15 years before entering the plugin business, working with musicians from bands like Dream Theater, Toto, Michael Jackson's band and many more. He produced these IRs at the Brainworx studio using 3 different MEGA cabinets, 9 different high-end vintage and modern microphones all running through his NEVE VXS72 console (1 out of 9 consoles of this type which exist), and using outboard EQ from Millennia, SPL and elysia. The resulting tones, which would take tons of gear, time and expertise to achieve, can be selected from a simple menu inside the plugin.

The plugin version also includes some extremely useful features not found on the original amp including a noise gate, delay and power soak.

The bx_megadual plugin delivers the full range of tones found in the original amp- from sparkling cleans, to crunch, to soaring solo tones to full blown, high-gain metal sounds. Its versatility makes it an incredibly useful tool to any Producer/Musician who records electric guitars and a joy to play for any guitarist.
