Fuzzed is an analogue modelling distortion plugin, using "state of the art" state-space modelling techniques to model the physical circuitry of the famous Jimi Hendrix guitar pedal and implement it as a VST plugin using the JUCE API.
Rather than simply modelling the general behaviour of the pedal, this plugin uses the circuit schematic to construct a highly accurate simulation of the pedal's behaviour, with full parametric control. This is then implemented as a VST plugin for use in real time.
Included are some analysis screenshots of the comparisons between the output of the system and the real pedal, which shows the behaviour of the VST to be highly comparable to the real thing.
This work is the result of continued development of a plugin created and submitted as part of an individual university project.
The examples show case the guitar tones produced, with an additional example showing the use of Fuzzed to add analogue distortion to a synth + verb as a return/aux effect.
Use of Fuzzed as a return effect can add beautiful analogue distortion to your sounds without losing the original tonal content.
**Update 14th December 2016**.
Added Windows 7 support.
**Update 2nd April 2017**.
Optimised performance on some machines. Changes to the circuit to improve the quality of the sound (especially for low frequencies).
