If I may add... TSS goes along great with Amplitube Fender line wink.gif

Looks like a very cool plugin smile.gif It's doing the same kind of thing I"m attemping with the "pre-amping" section of my fx chain. A bit more gain before your primary distortion is a good idea in software. Sadly this is windows only and my home studio is a Mac setup. If they go cross platform though I'd love to give it a whirl!

It's the best free tubescreamer software emulation I ever had the chance to test. It's far from perfect and Amplitube 3 one is also decent, but this one is free, and does a very good job in providing an extra grunt. However, I wouldn't count it for metal, it has too much mids and takes away some low fundamentals and harmonics, just like a regular screamer would do. For boosting a cranked vintage style amp for leads it's cool, but not exactly for providing extra hi-gain kick for rhythm, specially not scooped rhythm. Only metal amp can work there properly.

Very spiff tone! It sounds like there is some special sauce over the entire mix as well. Nicely done. I haven't tried revalver yet but I'm going to now.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy => ReValver MKIII + couple of more tricks biggrin.gif



Almost forgot, Amplitude metal is $99 and now ships with a stealth plug which is a starter recording interface not much bigger than a guitar jack. So the price is right and the focus in on metal. But after hearing the revalver version, I'm going to have to look in to getting that one too.

Thanks a lot Todd. There was a bit of multiband compression done on the master, but ReValver gives out a more natural signal to work with, which is more important. Making certain frequencies more prominent is only "make-up", if they are not good in the start, they will be like that later too. Ofc, I'm far from being experienced in mastering techniques, just use trial&error knowledge.
Peavey is signing this plugin, so I'm guessing they tried to model their amps the best way they could. This was 6505+ emulation, and the whole plugin was recommended to me by an experienced player who uses the same amp. It sounded right and closest to the amp. I'm not an expert, but I suspect the integrated impulse response cabinet emulation in ReValver plays an important role of the sound behaving closer to the real thing.
I definitely suggest checking it out, at least a demo. It has bunch of interesting options, including VST Host module feature.

I found another preset that I like even better than the last one. Just love the gain and crunch! It's based on

1.)Randall Warhead 300
2.)Fender MH-1 Cabinet
3.)Rack Tube Compressor
4.)Neuman Condenser Mic

*I think the Neuman is a crucial bit. I use a condenser mic for my "real world" rig and nothing comes close for tone when comparing it to dynamic mics like the SM-57.

Here are some pics of the preset and the new version.

Yeah, it's a lot more aggressive sounding. I like this one alot too. I'm going to have to break down at some point and decide which plugin route to invest in first $

Decisions decisions smile.gif I'd like to have both. The Amplitude metal plugin is going for half price from where I bought it. The peavey plugin looks to be around $250 but but sounds well worth it. You can down load a demo of the peavey plugin to give it a shot.

It was Lale who recommended the ReValver to me in the first place, it's definitely a thing to use for metal, specially rhythm.

Awesomeness. And Lale, welcome to GMC! Looking forward to learning from you! Revalver. I'm going to have to play with it some more. I'm still trying to figure out which bullet to bite first. My piggy bank is still a little lean from my last purchase lol.

I've been messing with Guitar Rig 4 recently and I must say I"m really impressed. Here is a guitar rhythm and a lead recorded clean and at very low volume. Found a couple of stock patches in gtr4 and bingo. With some tweaking, sky is the limit. Attached File  GuitarRigMonsterGain.mp3 ( 1.38MB ) Number of downloads: 107

Very nice tone. Did you add reverb as recording sounds a bit too roomy? I like the tone character though its a bit digital sounding for my taste.

GR4 has some nice tones for sure! smile.gif

I think I did wash it a bit much with reverb. Hmm. Here is another patch for guitar rig 4. This one is kinda high gain with an octaver on it. I'm using it for the Composing collaboration with Kris Dahl. Enjoy!
