24-Feb-2020: Voxengo is happy to announce the release of the next major version 3.0 of its Boogex plugin, a free guitar amplifier and cabinet simulation plugin for professional music production applications. The plugin is available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plugin formats, for macOS and Windows computers.

This version features the following changes:

* Implemented the "DynaCab" dynamic convolution technique.
* Added the preset list sorting function to the preset manager.
* Redesigned the knob image.
* Extended the "Color Editor" with color modifiers.
* Added the "Gray Blue" color scheme.
* Added the "Amp" enable switch.
* Now Boogex can be used as a plain stereo convolver when the "Amp" stage is disabled, and the "Pre EQ Mix" set to 100.

Boogex is a guitar amplifier plug-in with a variety of sound shaping features for professional music production applications. With Boogex it is possible to get a heavy distorted sound as well as slight “jazzy” saturation sound. Boogex is also able to apply any speaker cabinet impulse response (selection of built-in impulses is available). The processing latency is close to zero making it possible to use Boogex for real-time guitar processing. Boogex also includes reverberation module derived from Voxengo OldSkoolVerb reverb.

Boogex features:

* Emphasis EQ
* 2 amplifier types
* 14 amplifier modes
* 61 built-in cabinet impulse responses
* DynaCab processing
* Stereo convolution processing
* Gate module
* Built-in reverb
* Stereo processing
* 64-bit floating point processing
* Preset manager
* Undo/redo history
* All sample rates support
* Zero processing latency

Nice. Can you may elaborate on the "'DynaCab' dynamic convolution technique"? Thanks

"The DynaCab processing is simple in its nature: the Amp signal is processed by two independent convolvers, each loaded with its own impulse response. Then the outputs of these convolvers are mixed in a dynamic manner. The dynamic response is derived from the signal output of the Pre EQ stage. This preserves the original guitar playing dynamics."

Thank you Aleksey!

One of the hardest tasks is to get the right guitar sound.
Therefor one has to check and test various ampsimps.
Your new Boogex 3 seems to become one of the finest
and most interesting ampsimps. Fantastic! :clap:

My feedback: I just worked with boogex 3 on a current
project. There are three points:

1. The strongest field of boogex 3 is that of the slightly
crunchy guitar sounds. The twilight zone between
harsh and steril can be adjusted very sensitively
by the spectrum-eq-curves. This works very well!

2. For a more distorted sound my favourite setting is:
amp "t2", mode "harder". This setting is great for high
gain and solo sounds.

3. The "DynCab" mode does not make a difference if
you just play a guitar solo. But for very dynamic eights
this is quite fantastic. The rhythm breathes! This is a real
game changer!

Bug report (Windows 7 x64, Reaper 6.04 x64, VST2 x64 versions) :-

There is an issue with the new Color Modifier for 'Disabled control' where the Opacity is not only affecting the control but also the VU meters!! This is also happening in SPAN Plus, VariSaturator and Crunchessor. SPAN and LF Max Punch appear to work as intended ;)

Cheers for the Boogex btw, it's been a mainstay of mine for years now and it's awesome that you still provide updates and new features for a free plugin :tu:
