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:
This is a very nice sounding guitar amp simulation.
Very good quality - not only - for a free plug-in. I know some commercial amp-sim plugins, which sound much less convincing.
The clean as well as the overdriven sounds are very convincing, without the often heard too sharp, too shrill or too digital sounding higher frequencies, the - compared to a lot of real amps - even luxurious pre- and post-tone shaping controls allow a good (fine-)adjustment. Just sounds right. The overtone reproduction and dynamic reaction also is very good, the general tone is very naturally sounding, doesn't over-colorize the original signal, plays and reacts very much like a good real tube amp.
The general sonic character for me is some very good, in a positively sense more vintage based tube amp tone, but - if wished - with much more gain, even decent high gain, so, depending on the tone controls you easily can adjust some nice, more American as well as more British sounding tones.
The modulation and delay section work fine, although I personally mostly prefer a pure amp tone, but nice to have these options already built in.
Works very well with different cabinet/speaker IR's.
