Black Rooster Audio releases GA-GT2 Guitar Preamp Plug-in

Black Rooster Audio

Black Rooster Audio has announced availability of its new GA-GT2 guitar preamp plug-in, for macOS and Windows in VST, AU and AAX plug-in formats, inspired by the classic Tech 21 SansAmp GT2 guitar preamp pedal.

BRA says:

The unit which inspired the GA-GT2 quickly became a favorite among guitarists of all genres, upon being introduced in 1989. It's been used by every guitar icon, from punk rockers to metalheads and country artists.

Due to its incredible versatility, it also became popular among bassists, and producers who use it to add warmth and saturation to drum and vocal tracks. The GA-GT2 sound is rooted in classic Tweet/British/Cali amps that will give you a very vintage vibe, but can easily be dialed up for more modern, overdriven tones.

From Vintage Clean to Pure Metal - A Versatile Preamp:

  • The Tone Maker - This versatile tool offers three distinct modes (Clean, Hi Gain, and Hot-Wired), each with its own unique tone and character.
  • Authentic Analog Feel - The real-time SPICE-type component-based circuit simulation approach allows the GA-GT2 to authentically capture the sound and feel of its analog counterpart in all nuances. This includes the op-amp clipping stages that were designed to simulate tube distortion.
  • Bespoke Sound - Use different instances of the GA-GT2 with the same input signal, and blend them together to obtain a unique sound (similar to using an amp with multiple mics).


  • Cab Sim Bypass: This feature allows you to bypass the cabinet circuit emulation to use in front of your favorite amp plugin, just like a regular distortion pedal.
  • Authentic Baxandall tone control: Treble and Bass controls modify the shelving EQ in the same way as the original unit.
  • Phase switch: This feature allows you to invert the signal to avoid phase cancellation when using the mix knob.
  • Mix knob: Blend the input signal with the distorted signal to get impressive results. Great for guitar tracks, but also for vocals, drums, and bass.
  • SSE2 & Apple Silicon optimized code: DSP operations are pipelined using SSE2 and Apple Silicon instruction sets. This ensures a high-performance operation despite its very complex computations.
  • HighDPI/Retina Support: The user interfaces support high pixel density on both Windows and Mac OS systems, giving you the most enjoyable user experience on high DPI displays.

Intro Price: $19.00 (Reg. $79.00).

14-day, fully-functional trial versions of all Black Rooster Audio plug-ins, including GA-GT2, are available by signing up for an account here.
