Distortion Essentials Bundle
UAD is all I use !!!
These sound awesome. I never thought I would say I wouldn't use my amps any longer, but its starting to look that way. Stop complaining about DSP power. If you want the best sound, you have to pay a little for it. Thats why I know have 12 DSP processors. The new upgrades RULE !!!
My secret wishes came true! Thx UA for this great update. Of course there are voices that don`t feel the same, but with my system, everything is just wonderful. Keep up the good work and thx for V8! Greetz from Austria
I pretty much exclusively use pedals on drums, vocals and synths and these have just rocked my world. My reamps and DIs are now sitting redundant as I pound beats and textures with the RAW especially. I've always loved the RAT and this just gets me there straight away. Couldn't be happier!!
I ran these all through the ENGL on a clean setting. The virtual Rat sounds better than my newer Rat II. The filter taper and sound are a little smoother. Probably means I should just solder a better transistor in mine. I have a 90's Russian Big Muff and the Bermuda behaves a lot like it. Rolling off the guitar volume works the same on both. The Bermuda is a little darker but my actual pedal has always been too bright. I've never been a fan of tube screamers so I don't have much of a critical opinion about this one. This model sounds decent. Still not a fan of tube screamers.
I like the new console a lot
I have to say, that in spite of the few negative reviews submitted early on, and maybe because I did not use the previous console very much before the new one arrived, having only recently acquired an Apollo Twin, I find the console V8 intuitive and a powerful asset in my setup and love these old faithful emulations of the distortion essentials plugins.. Yes I could always do with more plug in power, but I can still do a great deal with what I have and enjoy saving sessions for future use in an environment that looks attractive and functions at least for me, very well. I like also for instance, the fact that I can easy click decide what will go to track and what will just enhance the experience in the cans on the way in.
Great pedals simulations
Taking into the fact that until now I have not found a tube amp simulator that sounds much like a real amplifer, and I mean that is not tinted harsh and digital sound; these three plugins of famous pedals sound very well and are realistic, but as I said you have to have a clean guitar sound base, which has to be very good and realistic, and yet I have not found it among the many guitar simulators on the market. And I do not speak of highly distorted sounds that could be good enough, but of a clean, round, full sound and tube guitar.
It's hard I know.
Another thing is the price that is too high at least for one of the non-professional musicians like me who like much but the sounds of Universal Audio.
