Overview

ENGL® Amplifier Plug-In Bundle
developed by Brainworx

Two Tone Machines. Zero Prisoners.

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.

Now you can:

  • Re-amp your tracks through ENGL’s classic, vintage-flavored E765 Retro Tube and fire-breathing E646 VS Limited Edition amplifiers using your UAD-2 DSP Accelerator
  • Track through either amp in real time, with near-zero latency, on your Apollo audio interface
  • Shape your guitar sounds further with ENGL amps’ built-in FX Rack and Recording Chains
  • Enjoy quick, precise guitar tuning with the included bx_tuner plug-in

ENGL E765 Retro Tube Plug-In
for Classic Clean, Crunch, and Grind

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.

ENGL E646 VS Limited Edition Plug-In
for Modern Rock and Metal

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.

Powerful FX Rack Lets You Fine-Tune Your Tones

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.

Brainworx bx_tuner

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.

    PRICELESS
    by . (Saturday 25 July, 2015)

    A few weeks ago now, I purchased an Apollo Twin Solo. My 1st UA product. Based on that purchase, I was able to get a 14 day demo on other various UAD-2 plug ins. What I REALLY love is that I can do this in MY home, at MY pace and not in some store with some guy wanking on Smoke On The… Read More

    Brainworx got it bang on with the Friedman Amp collection!

    I have been using Friedman amplification for the past few years. They are superb in the studio as well as live. I currently own a BE100 and have been using it in the studio and isolated environments constantly over the course of 2 and a bit years, even when it was hard to get your hands on a… Read More

    Killer Amp Sims
    by A. Marshall(Wednesday 1 July, 2015)

    WOW! The best Ive used, lots of killer tones here, I particularly love the BE-100, yes a high gain monster but it also a killer clean channel as well. The input gain and the noise gate are handy, so much in here it will keep me busy for ages. Also worth mentioning, you can have 4 settings… Read More

    Simply The Best
    by D. Lavyne(Friday 12 June, 2015)

    Utterly amazing! Both the BE-100 and the DS-40 have something incredible to offer, but will require you to really open your mind and spend some time to find the right cab model and learn how the gain structure and tone controls of these amps affect your sound. It took me weeks (literally) to… Read More
