Piotr 'Habib' Pyrzanowski

Piotr "Habib" Pyrzanowski has released Extremist, a free multi-effect VST plug-in for Windows designed for use with guitars - its main purpose is for distorting a guitar signal to create an "extremely heavy sound". This effect is not a tube amplifier simulator, however some methods of altering the signal are similar to tube amplification characteristics.

Extremist works in stereo, without any latency, and includes a 15-band stereo equalizer. It uses SSE instructions for Pentium II or newer CPUs.


  • Drive, Dry, Wet, Volume: knobs for regulating amplification & mixing signals.
  • Feedback: level of feedback signal.
  • Clip: clipping level.
  • Reverb: stereo reverb effect, adjustable up to delay.
  • Mod Boost: mid-tones amplification.
  • Eq Q: width of each frequency band amplification of equalizer.
  • Post LPF filter Q: filtering of high frequencies of effect output.
  • Noise gate.
  • Amp curve: amplification characteristic.
  • Lock bars: steering of equalizer in mono/stereo.
  • Post gating: noise gate applied before/after effect.
  • Smoothing: signal smoothing (hiss reduction).
