Plugin Alliance announces new Brainworx Plug-ins for Tracking and Processing Guitar Sounds

Plugin Alliance

Plugin Alliance has announced four new Brainworx Plugins For real-time tracking and processing of guitar sounds. The bx_rockrack V3 collection boasts eight amps in one plug-in and adds new and improved sounds, faster performance and workflow, and AAX DSP compatibility at a reduced price.

Brainworx continues its tradition of advanced component-level modeling, designed to faithfully recreate the tone and behavior of guitar amps and effects, and fulfill a need for high-end guitar amp and stomp box emulations in the AAX DSP format for Pro Tools HDX users.

Marking the culmination of four years of exacting guitar amp model development, the redesigned bx_rockrack V3 delivers a collection of 1:1 emulations of eight high-end guitar amplifiers, each one painstakingly captured:

  • Brainworx bx_rockrack V3 ($199 MSRP) – eight 1:1 emulations of coveted, high-end guitar amplifiers from Marshall, Mesa, and ENGL packed into one sleek and sophisticated plugin. The bx_rockrack V3 includes 40 pristine impulse responses that combine cabinets with EQ settings and other gear, such as the onboard noise gate, vintage delay and shaping filter effects. This completely overhauled flagship guitar amp sim improves workflow, reduces CPU usage and increases sound quality, and its endless tone varieties are all 100% recallable and reliable. The price has also dropped $50 from the cost of bx_rockrack PRO.
  • Brainworx bx_rockrack V3 Player (free full license) – This addition to Plugin Alliance's PA free Bundle lets users experience the jaw-dropping sounds of all eight amp models from the bx_rockrack V3 through 26 non-editable presets ranging from clean tones from Brainworx's Marshall JCM-800 emulation to ferocious metal strains from overdriven ENGL preamps. Users have unlimited access to bx_rockrack V3 Player's presets and can upgrade to the full version at any time.
  • Brainworx bx_metal2 ($49 MSRP) – a faithful emulation of the industry-standard Boss MT-2 stomp box, the bx_metal2 presents the quickest route from a clean guitar tone to a totally authentic metal sound. It can crank out super-long sustain and heavy mids and lows like a stack of overdriven amps. With three ±15 dB EQ bands, bx_metal2 can produce both searing leads and face-melting, low-boosted heavy metal chords.
  • Brainworx bx_blackdist2 ($49 MSRP) – an exacting emulation of the ProCo Sound RAT 2 pedal, which has shaped the sound of thousands of iconic records from the likes of Metallica, Foo Fighters and many others. The bx_blackdist2 produces myriad distortions, from warm overdrive to tube-like crunchiness and fierce screams, all from just three simple parameters.

"The original bx_rockrack was our first amp emulation," said Brainworx founder and CEO Dirk Ulrich. "It was a real labor of love to go back and apply to V3 so much of what we've learned about developing guitar amp plugins and capturing recording chains over the last four years."

bx_rockrack PRO users can upgrade to bx_rockrack V3 for $29 and enjoy the new Brainworx bx_metal 666 amp, 25 new recording chains and the improved workflow, sound and CPU load of the new plugin. Plugin Alliance is also offering a promotional upgrade of $79 for users who download and activate the bx_rockrack V3 Player, now through October 31st.

The bx_rockrack V3, bx_metal2 and bx_blackdist2 are also included in the 100% BX Bundle V2.7and All Bundle V4.3 at discounted bundle prices. All Plugin Alliance products are available as fully-functional 14-day demos with a registered account.
