Dive into advanced guitar distortion with the HoRNet HDS1 MK2, the newest offering from HoRNet Plugins. This plugin faithfully replicates the legendary orange guitar distortion pedal, celebrated for its vibrant and expressive distortion tones in the music world. Tailored for traditional and contemporary producers, the HDS1 MK2 goes beyond just guitar effects, offering flexibility across various audio production situations.

The HDS1 MK2 offers various features that enhance and diversify the traditional guitar distortion experience.

These adjustments empower musicians to craft their sound finely, infusing intricate layers of richness and vigour into their guitar distortion.

The HDS1 MK2 features adjustable effect levels and a tone control that ranges from dark to bright, offering extensive flexibility to match the desired sound profile. The enhanced analog emulation in the plugin ensures that even the subtlest nuances of analog guitar distortion are captured with clarity and warmth.

And with its intuitive Dry/Wet knob, HDS1 MK2 seamlessly mix processed and original signals with ease, while the VU meter aids in meticulous level tweaking. Additionally, the plugin boasts support for up to 16x oversampling, complete with an automatic setting, essential for attaining pristine, high-definition audio quality.

The HoRNet HDS1 MK2 is compatible with modern operating systems like macOS (10.13 and above) and Windows (10 and above), available in Audio Units, VST3, and AAX formats for diverse audio workstations.

Cool, updated version.

Input leveling and Dry/Wet controls are very useful, so is the Less Shrill mod.
Ultra and Seeing Eye are not really so much my taste, but certainly useful for others. I personally prefer the original voicing. Properly adjusted a nice sort of Marshall sound, a little bit different and hotter than the tone of an SD-1 or TS-9.

Oversampling adjustment and VU-meter also are nice features. Anyway already comparably cheap and a more than fair update price too.

An SD-1 with comparable features and mods (C6, more transparency (Boutique), LED-diodes, ...) also would be nice.
