Waves has announced the release of Voltage Amps, a new effect plugin for macOS and Windows featuring "7 iconic guitar and bass amps, optimized for instant tone gratification" in VST2, VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats.
Here's what they say:
Endless tweaking can kill inspiration—so with Voltage, we've made sure you get inspiring guitar and bass tones, immediately. Voltage amps are designed to deliver satisfying tone in any setting, and we've even added a Focus control to match the amps' tone to your individual guitar and pickups.
Each of the 5 guitar amps delivers an iconic sound, based on classic American and British amps—clean to crunchy, jangly to high-gain aggressive. The bass amps run the gamut from smooth vintage to full-spectrum modern.
For instant tone gratification, just load an amp, lightly tweak cab and tone–and you're done. For easy comparisons, all control settings persist as you switch amps. Create your own sounds, or choose from over 400 presets by top musicians and producers—including rock icons Butch Vig (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and Dave Mustaine (Megadeth), the producers for Taylor Swift, Doja Cat, and more—and indulge in your favorite new amp collection.
