The interface is simple and very user friendly. You can simply drag and drop elements to create a guitar fx chain, which can of course also be used for any other sort of instrument.

Unfortunately the guitar amps, as well as the various effect pedals all have a rather generic sound. Nothing to write home about really. I'm quite sure that no extensive modelling approach went into these processors, but rather simple standard waveshaping with added EQ. It's not bad, but it's just mediocre. Magix Vandal, which is almost ten years old, sounds much better and so do a range of freeware amps.

I like the included cabinets impulses, as well as the various reverbs and echo effects which I believe are also based on sampled impulse responses.

Unfortnately the developer has turned the product from freeware to payware, which is something I don't like. Could have kept the plugin freeware and released a completely new, overhauled product commercially. Turning freeware into payware is like giving someone a gift and then in a few months demanding money for the same gift you initially handed over for free. Don't do it.

I have tested a lot of virtual amps.

My top was Poulin and Bluecat.

I have to add Tonelib-GFX.

The latest update require a $40 fee be paid for a license, despite no warning of this new license until you've already installed the update using the programs update dialogue.

It's a nice program, but ambushing your established users like this is pretty nasty.

For the price this app is really good. It is CPU efficient and very good clean sounds. I think I will switch from Amplitube to this because of this...

I spent the last 2 days playing with a standalone version of Tonelib-GFX. Sound wise for me, it smokes Amplitube. It warmer, cleaner and doesn't have that highend shrill in the overdrive that is so prevalent in Amplitude. The preset management is way more flexible and vastly superior to Amplitubes. I pretty psyched so far...

Heads up: The version 3.7.2 installer installs what looks to actually be VST2 version 3.5.6.0, which crashes Tracktion Waveform 10 when coming back into an edit that has ToneLib in it. It's odd in that the VST2 ToneLib Help button shows version 3.7.2, yet the description that shows up in Waveform's plugin page shows 3.5.6.0.

At first I didn't realize that the VST3 version was loading into the standard C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST3 path, so I copied it from there into my Waveform custom plugin path, which brought it into W's VST3 plugin list. Looking at the VST3 version's description information revealed that it was indeed at 3.7.2.

I then loaded the VST3 version and it ran flawlessly in Waveform. Super grateful for this great plugin. Cheers.

Comment for HerrFornit - the default fx type on the right is Dynamics / Filter, that's why you're seeing lots of those types of effect. Click there to also choose Overdrive / Distortion, Amp simulators, Cabinets, Modulation / Sfx, Delay, Reverb. There are 11 Delays alone.

Hi madwab.

thanx for reply. I noticed now hat its a problem of interaction with my DAW (Jeskola BUZZ). The pull down menu does not work. In the standalone version it is ok.

seems to be cool, but crashes Reaper 64 Win 10 every time. Still have no idea how it sounds.

Curious, do VST & VST3 versions act same?

I documented related issues at the top of this thread.
