Distortion Essentials Bundle
Distortion Essentials Bundle
Lots of crunch !
I own a plexi and a TS-9 Tube screamer. The plugin emulations don't really sound the same but I can still dial in a cool over the top distortion when I need it !
This is a goldmine! Three amazing pedals in really good emulations. Even the non bypass signal from the Tube Screamer is there, which happens to sound really nice! Awesome!
sound good but need MIDI remote
the three pedals sounds amazing. But... please add a MIDI support to map the bypass on a MIDI pedal board. The sound was very important, but the second advantage of the pedal is to leave the hand of the player free for remote it by foot... why this capability is not emulated?
Fat, Warm & Rich
I haven't been lucky enough to try an original Big Muff Pi, let alone one form the 60's which this one is modelled from. What I can say is that it provides a warm, sweet fuzz.....even with just the tone & sustain controls you can get a very wide variety of sounds....impressed. I use this guy as a unison plug then going into the Marshall 2203. happy days :)
Extra grit !
I used the tube screamer on a recent track with the Bluesbreaker and I got the extra sustain I needed without the unwanted fuzz.
These pedals together with the Friedman DS are all you need to get the tone shaping needs! Couldnt be happier. Good Job!
Amazing guitar tones
Does what it says on the can.
I like these pedals a lot. They are super useful, especially when used in conjunction with a quality amp sim.
Seriously this makes me wish they would make more pedals !! Their so great
Useful for lots of things
Great trio of distortion flavors that can be used on many things besides electric guitar. They may not sound 100% like the hardware, but they are so much more versatile as a plugin. They don't always sound great at all settings or with every guitar, but the same is true of the hardware. I give 4 stars because they are pricey unless on sale (same is true of all UAD plugins IMO) compared to the competition.
Like the real thing
Beeing a guitarist for 35 years, these plugs sound as awesome as the real thing. Maybe better!
Upgrade for guitar emulations
This package was a big upgrade for my guitar emulations. Sounds especially good on the Fender 55.
I love it sounds like the real thing!!!!
I am planning on buying these...
Great companion for the Marshal virtual amps collection!
real sonido en la emulacion... se pueden trabajar en cualquier mezcla y su sonido se siente muy analogo para ser un plugin
Essential Pedals for your guitar rig.
I'm not a guitar player. I just use electric guitars for demo recording. So I'm learning how to control guitar and amp tones. But still, I'm not sure these simulations works as they should. They sound not bad, but the range of 'fine' tones are very narrow with sims. Do I have to wait for 5 to 10 more years?
I absolutely love these pedals. There is always one in the Unison slot in my console. The only one I've been fortunate enough to have hardware experience with is the TS, and this is a pretty faithful reproduction. The response is excellent. All of them have their own character and respond amazingly to dynamics, picking or volume settings. They are perfect for overdriving an amp sim. I use them on bass and guitar with Ampeg, ENGL, and Fender amp sims. They aren't kidding by calling these Essentials. No messy cables or clutter on the floor just awesome OD and distortion. And such a value too!
