Linda Audio releases SuperCrunch - great sounding and straight-forward guitar amp plugin. SuperCrunch does not model any real hardware but it is capable of very natural sound of classic tube amplifier. Its range is from sparkling clean sound through gentle and not so gentle crunch tones to wild rock and metal distortion. There are controls for input and output gain, drive gain and bright and there is a choice of two channels - crunch and lead. You can also blend in the clean signal. The very important part of this amp is the 8-band graphic equalizer which is engaged before the tube stages which allows very wide shaping of the distortion character. It can be also gain-compensated. On top of that there is also cabinet simulation which can be switched off and consists of two phase aligned impulse responses between which you can continuously blend. Finally, gate with adjustable threshold is also available.

Sounds nice! I'm not a pro guitarist and not an adept of some strictly defined guitar genre (such as blues, or power metal, or smth). So I can't evaluate how the plugin matches some standard guitar tasks. But I like to experiment with the sound itself and I'm rather picky as to sound 'liveness' and 'truthfullness'. Looking from this point the sound is nice and well customizable.

What would be nice to see in next versions (as to me):

  • The ability to load external IR's.
  • The ability to dynamically(!) crossfade between two IR's The ratio between two IR-s could be controlled by input level. This could significantly 'animate' the cabinet section which sounds too static with one single IR.
  • Switchable oversampling ratio (now it seems to be 2x and that's nice but for some cases it would be awesome to use higher values).

Nice, in principle good sounding amp sim.

Everything necessary is there, soundwise it is - in my opinion - more American voiced, which means, you get some good clean, crunch up to intense overdrive / lead sounds out of it with some sort of more Fender / Mesa Boogie than Marshall oriented character, I would say.

Bright and Clean Blend are nice features for fine-tuning, the GEQ anyway. Some visual center position of the EQ would have been nice, also a reset to zero option and maybe a separate eq preset storing option, but as this is freeware I do not want to complain.

The cabinet section also works fine, I only noticed that, if I deactivated it and wanted to use external IR's instead, the final sound became a little too dull and indirect for my taste. Obviously using the built-in cabinet(s) is the better choice here, unfortunately, as I usually prefer using my own IR's, but ok.

Also the position of the main power switch irritated me first, as I thought, that this was the cabinet on/off switch.

Apart from these minor complaints a nice, simple, but effective amp simulation with - properly adjusted - a lot of good and useful sounds.

Hi, thank you for the review! And thank you for some hints to make SuperCrunch better. I will definitely add visible center position markers for the eq sliders (actualy it is there now, but almost invisible). Probably I will also add the eq reset button. Btw. you can reset any controll to its default position by double-clicking it, but it is true that reseting all eight bands take some time.
