Okay, well, there’s actually no sneak preview of the REVIEW per se, but I will happily post a clip that will appear in both the Amp and Effects room bundles which I personally think sounds quite lovely and shows off what these plugins are capable of. Of what they are capable. Oh, who worries about prepositional phrases? I’ve just about finished the Amp Room Bundle review, starting on the Effects Room Bundle review tomorrow – look for both of these to be published next Monday, FrugalGuitarist’s usual publication date, along with more clips that show the other elements of the bundles as well. I might drop another clip on the blog to show off another plugin, I think someone requested a clip of the Metal Amp Room?
Schecter C-1 Classic -> DI
And in the DAW,
1. T-Racks 3 Optical Compressor, which is my go-to tracking comp these days, subtle enhancement that doesn’t distort my attack but does lend an evenness to the sound that I find very pleasant
2. Softube Acoustic Feedback – you get to hear this one used in a much more musical context than the clip I made a bit back
3. G-Tune tuner – utility plugin, no sonic contribution
4. G-Gate noise gate – utility plugin, contributes silence when not playing?
5. Softube Vintage Amp Room – The two rhythm tracks on the left and right are the Vox model, while the lead down the middle is the Marshall; I spent time tonally and melodically balancing the left and right rhythm tracks, I’m actually quite proud of it and I think I’ll make more of this musical idea 🙂
6. (on the rhythm tracks) G-Chorus – simple but very nice sounding chorus, this is the default setting as the plug loads
7. Softube Spring Reverb – My favorite thing about this plugin is that it handles the whole range of spring possibilities, from subtle to clangy and drippy (whereas many spring reverbs cover the clangy/drippy part but miss subtle)… Here I use it subtly for some ambient texture.
Enough yakkin’ here’s the clip.
Looking forward to your feedback, I know there are plenty of folks who wonder about Softube’s stuff.
