The ENGL E765 Retro Tube plug-in for UAD-2 and Apollo hardware gives you classic clean and distorted tube amp tones for almost any genre.
More than two decades after its inception, ENGL guitar amplifiers continue to deliver cutting-edge tone machines to some of rock and metal’s most legendary players. With their complex clean textures and searing distortion, it’s no wonder these coveted tube amps have become a staple in studios and stages worldwide.
Designed in conjunction with Brainworx, the ENGL E765 Retro Tube plug-in brings one of ENGL’s flagship amps directly to your UAD-2 DSP Accelerator or Apollo-equipped workstation. The two channel ENGL 765 Retro Tube plug-in also sports an FX Rack to broaden your tonal palette.
Channel One’s three-dimensional clean tones will impart your tracks with a complex sparkle and harmonically rich chime, whether you’re plugging in a single-coil or humbucker-equipped guitar — perfect for lilting arpeggios or funky rhythmic stabs.
By tweaking Chanel One’s Gain control, you’re able to take advantage of the ENGL E765 Retro Tube plug-in’s superb dynamics, as you can dial-up clean-ish, just-on-the-verge-of-breakup, crunch textures that will add power, definition, and texture to your tracks.
Channel Two’s more aggressive voice gives you a myriad of intense rock tones that run the gamut from classic tube snarl, to modern sledgehammer distortion. Like the original amplifier, the ENGL E765 Retro Tube plug-In reacts to your playing attack exceptionally well — no matter how much gain you’re using. From de-tuned rhythms to singing leads, the ultra-musical string-to-string detail stays intact.
The ENGL E765 Retro Tube plug-in’s FX Rack adds another level of sonic versatility to your workstation, with pre/post EQ filter controls, a noise gate, Power Soak, and host-syncable lo-fi delay. The crown jewel of the FX Rack, however, is the 64 powerful Recording Chain presets, which allow you to audition your tones through a variety of vintage mics, ENGL cabinets, and outboard gear, including hardware emulations from Millennia, SPL, and elysia.Captured through Brainworx’s Neve VXS72 board, the Recording Chain presets are akin to an engineer patching you through various high-end signal chains, but with a single mouse click instead of time-consuming rerouting. You can even set this feature to scroll through the various Recording Chains in one, two, or four bar increments, allowing you to keep your hands on your instrument while listening to the sonic differences.
