"Balance on the edge - the key to a great guitar tone"

3-channel guitar software amplifier & cabinet including chorus & delay effects.

TURNING A VISION INTO REALITY

As an experienced musician, mixing and mastering engineer, and programmer, Martin Linda exactly knows how he wants his guitars to sound to fit any particular mix no matter the genre. Being a long time user of various amp sims and cab impulses, one day, he started programming his dream machine of a virtual amp to create an amplifier plug-in widely usable across many rock & metal subgenres. Since then, many moons have passed, and by working in close collaboration with our team of product designers and programmers, we together have made his vision into a total amp sim monster.

This uniquely sounding and unbelievably versatile virtual amp will give you control over a vast tonal palette. Its variability is mind-blowing. What a great ear and mind Martin has.

MEET ROCKSTACK

RockStack is a three-channel amplifier plug-in software with an independently switchable effects section and a continuously blendable cabinet impulse section. Equipped with extensive tone-shaping options such as Pre and Post gain EQ and additional Tight, Fat, Body contours, the tonal possibilities of this amp are virtually endless. On top of that, the effects section consists of independently engageable Multi-stage chorus and Delay processing.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Complete virtual rig.
  • Created in collaboration with Linda Audio.
  • Powerful pre-gain & post-gain tone-shaping.
  • Mix ready guitar tones.
  • Made to chug.
  • Designed by experienced mixing and mastering engineer.

Features

Three-channel amp

RockStack delivers three distinctively different voicings - Clean, Rock, & Metal. Each of them has its specific color and gain structure, and it can be tailored to taste by all given controls of the amplifier.

Tone-Gain-Tone

The difference between EQ shaping before and after a gain stage is gigantic. RockStack gives you both options. Use the Pre EQ controls to push the gain stage more in a particular frequency range, and then use the Post EQ to finalize the amp's sound making it more mix ready.

Rack effects

The Chorus can be placed pre or post the gain stages, and it has two switchable modes. The Delay is placed after the gain stages, and it delivers anything from clean and precise digital delay to degraded and clipped repeats typical of analog delays of yesteryear.

Blendable cabinets

RockStack features two cab impulses - A & B, between which you can blend smoothly. The cabinet section can be switched off, too, in case you wish to pair RockStack with impulses of your own choice.

Tight, Fat, Body

Use the Tight to make both the low end and gain structure more focused. Use Fat to get a fuller lower-midrange response. And use Body to make the amp push more aggressively in the higher midrange.

Bright switches

The three-stage multi-switch accentuates higher frequencies dynamically. Both active positions are sensitive to the input signal level. Bright I is more focused on the higher midrange, while Bright II emphasizes even higher frequencies along with little bass as well.

Noise gate

The solution to keep your sound noise-free even with higher amounts of gain. It is useful, particularly when pushing Rock and Metal channels into high saturation. When playing Clean or with lower gain sounds, you better turn it off to get maximum dynamics and retain attack information.

Independent modules

Amp, Effects, and Cabinet sections can be separately switched off or used on its own.

Reviewed By CoolGuitarGear

I had issues getting this to run on Sonar X3 (Windows 10 with 64-bit), but it worked no problem with the latest Cakewalk by Bandlab. My thoughts are straight-forward, with the accompanying demo speaking for itself (both sound samples and 'building' a classic rock tone). This 3-channel amp offers a lot of flexibility in tones and gain, from very clean to hi-gain (metal-based, but not necessarily modern metal, like running a Diezel or Dual Rectifier). Regardless, there's a lot of tweaking capabilities, and I really like the tight, fat and body controls. Those elements add a lot in terms of bringing a tone to life and sounding punchy. The dual cabs, which you can mix in different ratios, certainly takes away a lot of the guesswork, and you can load your own IRs if desired. There are enough presets to provide a solid working and playing foundation, and then you can create your own presets as desired or needed. As diverse as this plug-in is, it is more bare-bones, in that you don't get overdrives, fuzz pedals, a bunch of IRs, etc., but is meant to be a one-stop amp/cab solution for the average studio recording musician (developed by a musician and studio engineer), from general guitar player to composer. Those into having hundreds of presets, amps, cabs, etc., would need to look elsewhere (and invest more than the $49 USD price-tag of this plug-in). Overall, for the price, this is a very decent plug-in with a good sound and sufficient tweaking capabilities:
