Euphoria
Reviewed By jaeger28
May 2, 2020

I owned a first version Ecstasy 100B for a few years, so when someone recommended me to try the Euphoria Plugin, which emulates a very well equipped 101B and Classic, I checked out the Demo version.

For me the XTC (which this is modeled after) was always all about the blue channel. I used to run red only in Plexi mode.

When I tried the plugin, I loved the blue channel right away on it. It's a very organic and real feeling emulation. Transparent and dynamic. Fast/low latency too. The Red sounds great in Plexi mode and I was surprised about how good the cleans were in green. I didn't remember the clean channel to be very good on my 100B.

I like to run the masters slightly above 12 o'clock, which means I have to ride the output control in the plugin very low, it's a bit frickely to set but doable.

It was only after a while that I realised you could improve the sound quality even more by upping the oversampling from 2x (default) to 4x or 8x. But it also boosts the processor load quite a bit, so I am fine with 2x.

For the effects that are included, I particularly liked the Greed Smasher and the Wah. The Chorus/Delay/Reverb are nice add ons but there are better ones out there. The tuner is quite good and so is the cabinet/speaker sim. But I prefer the results with Torpedo WOS and my favourite impulse responses (you can only use one IR in the integrated cabinet sim or use two microphones on one of the included cabs).

Overall:

+very organic, authentic simulation of the Bogner Ecstasy
+low latency, reasonable processor load
+added versatility with Class A/AB and Cameron Mod switch for Red Channel
+Great Overdrives and Wah
+Cabinet simulation is usable
+choice of 2x/4x/8x Oversampling
+it is very possible to perform a whole gig with just this one plugin (like it is with the real Ecstasy)

-integrated effects like Chorus/Delay/Reverb just OK, not necessary IMO.
-It would be great if the integrated cabinet sim could mix and pan 2 or 3 user IRs.

I would call it an Overdrive.

Amazing Sound, exactly what i searched for.

Easy to Download and Install.

Sounds awesome for a free plugin. I still use the free TSE Tube Screamer as in my main tone chain, but will use the same setup, but with this instead for layers, and it sounds amazing.
