Not at all impressed here. You go to the website and they oversell it and you know damned well there's a catch but you can't find a price for anything on the site just lots of notices for a free download. The downloader is simple enough but the installer does not give you an option to not install the stand alone player on your desktop.
But here is where it gets interesting. The program opens up and you have to sign up and sign in. Most of the great features they offered you are locked and waiting for you to buy. Sure there are three or four amps (was looking forward to the Acoustic Bass amp). The bulk of the cabinets are free but not the stomps. There's a delay and a looper but not even one generic Fuzz box. You get a better pedal board with the free Lost in 70s amps. The lay out of the interface is confusing as far as routing goes but the thing that got me is that when using it as a VST in Cakewalk you have to leave your DAW to make any adjustments the knobs are too sensitive which is good because you can't hear any of the changes you are making anyway. And then it started screwing with my audio engine, latency for days and harsh but that could be because of the odd routing options.
Could not uninstall this fast enough. They need to be a lot more upfront with the pricing and I just can't recommend this at all given the quality of free and paid plug ins out there. Maybe the stand alone phone apps are better but as a VST I was not impressed.Read Review
