Delivering powerful guitar tone has been ENGL Amplifiers’ singular mission for over two decades. Bold clean textures, snarling slabs of chunk, punishing rhythm sounds, and intense, singing sustain, are why ENGL’s high-wattage, tube-powered behemoths grace the stages of some of the biggest names in hard rock and metal. And today, Brainworx has faithfully captured two of ENGL’s most popular guitar amps as a jaw-dropping plug-in bundle.
Modeled on one of ENGL’s most versatile amps, the E765 Retro Tube plug-in melds dynamic, old school clean and crunch tones with aggressive distortion textures that can subtly enhance a track — or take it over! Perfectly capturing the original’s 100-watt EL34-power section, as well as its powerful EQ and organic touch-sensitivity, the E765 Retro Tube plug-in offers a full spectrum of tones — from pop to country, funk to hard rock.
Designed in conjunction with metal virtuoso and Rage guitarist, Victor Smolski, Engl’s E646 VS Limited Edition amplifier has become a go-to amp for players who crave the ultimate in high-gain performance without sacrificing clarity and musicality. The E646 VS Limited Edition plug-in delivers the same pristine, modern-sounding clean tones, intense crunch, and over-the-top distortion capabilities as the hardware version, giving you a forward-looking tone machine that delivers everything from the sonically sublime, to the extreme.
Both the E765 Retro Tube and E646 VS Limited Edition plug-ins offer an onboard FX Rack feature that gives you potent tone sculpting ability — adjust lows and highs with Tight and Smooth filters, create crushing rhythm tracks by artfully tweaking the onboard noise gate, or enhance solos with a chewy, host-syncable, lo-fi delay. You can also use the FX Rack’s Recording Chains feature to audition your tones through 64 different signal paths, featuring various ENGL speaker cabinets, high-end mics, preamps, and EQ emulations.
With the Engl Amplifier Plug-Ins Bundle, you’ll also receive Brainworx’s bx_tuner plug-in — an intuitive, easy-to-use, chromatic tuner that can be inserted into a channel or bus to keep your tracks sounding their best. The bx_tuner offers spot-on chromatic tuning with a couple of clever additions. Dim mode offers tuning with sound, albeit at a reduced level, while a Ballistics feature lets you customize the action of the tuning LEDs and how fast they track pitch changes. Everyone needs to be in tune. The bx_tuner allows you to do it elegantly and accurately within your workstation.
