The Canadian Metal Pack consists of six plug-ins - three from AcmeBarGig and three from LePou plug-ins - plus three Cabinet Impulse Responses from Catharsis Studios, designed specifically for LePou plug-ins' SoloC.
AcmeBarGig's Red Shift Overdrive allows you to replace the tone of your guitar's pickup with a huge list of alternatives and provides you the versatility you need without having to spend money on several guitars. From active rail pickups to lipstick-style single coils, from warm 50s humbuckers to high output modern varieties, RedShift covers every style of playing. Additionally, Red Shift allows you to actually change the material that makes up the body of your guitar. In addition to providing a variety of woods, AcmeBarGig provide you with some more interesting options. Guitars made of pyrex, granite, and even human tissue are available for those who aren't afraid to experiment.
AcmeBarGig's Preampus Distortus is their heaviest amp yet - this one is designed specifically for metal players. With record amounts of gain on tap, this one can deliver "chunky rhythms, searing leads, and the most brutal and aggressive tones we could dream up".
AcmeBarGig's Scar Unlimited is a customizable distortion processor which sends 4 freely selectable frequency bands to 4 separate virtual 12AX7 tubes, each with an individual bias control. This plug-in was designed to allow for highly flexible overdrive/distortion shaping.
LePou plug-ins SoloC Full Stack, SoloC Preamp and SoloC Head
SoloC is a 4 channel guitar amplifier with power amp (in the Head and Full Stack versions) and dual cabinet simulation (Full Stack only). The 4 channels cover everything from crystal, glassy cleans to heavy, thick distortion, and everything in between as well. Each cabinet may be bypassed, selected from an internal IR, or used with an external IR. Controls are included for controlling phase, delay, volume, as well as low pass and high pass filters.
Included in the release are 3 external IRs from Catharsis Studios, designed specifically for use with SoloC. "Global" controls are also included, mono/stereo and low/high quality switches in the Preamp and head models, and low/high quality and cabinet independent/blend switches in the Full Stack.
The plug-ins in the pack were developed using a mixture of C++, assembly and Synthmaker.
