Nice, in principle good sounding amp sim.

Everything necessary is there, soundwise it is - in my opinion - more American voiced, which means, you get some good clean, crunch up to intense overdrive / lead sounds out of it with some sort of more Fender / Mesa Boogie than Marshall oriented character, I would say.

Bright and Clean Blend are nice features for fine-tuning, the GEQ anyway. Some visual center position of the EQ would have been nice, also a reset to zero option and maybe a separate eq preset storing option, but as this is freeware I do not want to complain.

The cabinet section also works fine, I only noticed that, if I deactivated it and wanted to use external IR's instead, the final sound became a little too dull and indirect for my taste. Obviously using the built-in cabinet(s) is the better choice here, unfortunately, as I usually prefer using my own IR's, but ok.

Also the position of the main power switch irritated me first, as I thought, that this was the cabinet on/off switch.

Apart from these minor complaints a nice, simple, but effective amp simulation with - properly adjusted - a lot of good and useful sounds.

Hi, thank you for the review! And thank you for some hints to make SuperCrunch better. I will definitely add visible center position markers for the eq sliders (actualy it is there now, but almost invisible). Probably I will also add the eq reset button. Btw. you can reset any controll to its default position by double-clicking it, but it is true that reseting all eight bands take some time.

Well, it fuzzes...

But in my opinion who seriously needs any bass-overloaded fuzz tones in 2023 after decades with transparent overdrives and bass reduced overdrive and distortion pedals?

Does, what it promises, but is not really my sound, not even with the GEQ activated. I get better sound out of my favorite tube amp plugins alone.

The right choice, if you look for typical late 1960's to early 1970's fuzz tones, but not really a competitor to a good SD-1, DS-1, Klon Centaur, OCD or RAT simulation in my opinion, despite of the - theoretically - more flexible adjustment options.

Sounds too transistorized, scratchy, trashy and inharmonious for my taste, sorry. High-Gain Rectifier Mayhem or a serious alternative to any other good high-gain real tube amp simulation this is certainly not.

Maybe it works better with sythesizers....

Hi, thank you for the review. Well, this is Fuzz so it really does not try to substitute tube amp or common overdrive. It is different kind of animal. However it can be used in front of the tube amp with good and interesting results. Of course sound aesthetics are matter of taste and I understand that you don't like fuzzy guitar distortion, but for some reason this kind of sound was widely popular decades ago and I would say last few years it is again picked up at least as some spice to that perfect tube sound. Best regards, Martin Linda from Linda Audio.

I have only briefly tested the plugin but what strikes me: a well thought-out concept, very pleasant sound and a nice interface that reminds me personally a bit of the PSP plugins. Everything runs smoothly and the display is also a nice feature. A lot of work has gone into this for sure. And that for free! I have added the plugin to my list of favorites and think I will use it in the future. Maybe there will be more plugins from the manufacturer? I would like to see that.
