A comprehensive plugin that is great once you get past the steep initial learning curve. Key thing is it sounds great.Read Review
It sounds okay, but never more than that - won't confuse it with an actual amp. You can achieve better clean, driven and lead sounds with other free amp VSTs: e.g. Amplitube Custom Shop, Cypress TT-15 and Crunck V2. The CPU load isn't great either, which means I wouldn't reach for it to do low-CPU live tracking before switching it out for something else (I prefer Cypress TT-15 or the Simulanalog Guitar Suite amps for that).Read Review
Blue Cat themselves say that you can Split Audio into several Bands and mix + process them as you want. OK. That sounds quiet harmless to me. But this Tool is - i. m. O. - a little bit more than that. Splitting the Audio is fine and MB-7 is the "Missing Link" anyway. It may improve your Sound like you would maybe not have expected and help you find Problems you did not hear before. But - to make it short - this aweseome Tool really multiplies the Abilities of you Environment.
By the Way: is has built in FX, loads VST FX, you can group Bands, it can be automated, it has a Spectrogram, can process the Stereo width, it has a very comfortable GUI, many Settings, ... It is a unique (!) Plugin and a big Improvement for my Workflow.Read Review
plug'n script is the best plugin ever for learning how to code plugins. you won't get very far performance-wise, but you isntantly get started without any knowledge about coding and learn all the important basics and the presets are just great ressources for learning how to code in general.Read Review
Uh, this thing is incredible. Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wK7xSpQ6Wqg. Basically, multiply the number of guitars you have by at least 10. Using this in tandem with my favorite amp (Neural DSP NTS), cab (IK Amplitube cabs), and combos (UAD Fender & Marshall) sims... is a bit too much fun. Grab it while it's still 30% off during the intro sale.Read Review
Great support, numerous updates that actually improve the product rather than fix it. I had some problems to begin with but customer service @Bluecat came through & I'm blown away by the development of this product. I just realized I left a rant on here from years ago & felt the need to put the record straight. Great job Blue Cat.Read Review
OK, it's free. Thanks BlueCat. While the clean sounds were 'nice', the overdrive sounds were akin to a chainsaw in a plastic box. They were very noisy and the hissing was unbearable. The mid range was boxy and artificial. It was almost as if no cabinet simulator was being used so that I added one which improved the sound quite a bit. Overall, I wasn't convinced. BlueCat make great stuff. But in this case, there are other freeware amp modules that actually do a better job.Read Review
I love these amps, they have great responsiveness and dynamics, and the gui's.
are simple to use. These are a great start to a home-brew effects chain, .
which can put the BlueCat free plugin collection to good use, providing.
an overview of the quality one might expect from the commercial offerings.
I have used these in win 7, as well as in linux, both as windows versions in wine/windows-Reaper, .
and wrapped by LinVst as linux-native vsts, used in the linux version of Reaper.
I have also used them in win 7 hosted in BlueCat Axiom, as handy sources to.
gainstage, when you become familiar with the capabilities.
I give this five stars, out of five, or 9.8 out of 10, if there more accuracy, .
only because I'm spoiled by certain preset loading systems, but I suspect.
the Free Amp is also a testbed for new capabilities that will appear.
soon in their commercial products.
If someone has Guitar Rig, or the z3ta+ 1.5 effects plugin, .
these amps will be great additions to the effects you have available, .
