ENGL® Amplifier Bundle
ENGL® Amplifier Bundle
You would not believe its a plugin
Ok this plugins are absolutely brilliant. They have true analogue tube tone just in your laptop setup with your monitor speakers. No need to carry super heavy amps. You can get any tone with these 2 beasts, from super beautiful clean to crunchy tones, and high gain sounds too. Very versatile amp. Also there are some additional goodies like the noise gate, the delay, plenty of controls to shape the sound and the levels. And last but not least, the mic and cabinet simulations bring a lot of flavour to the tone. You can play with them with the auto setting and fine the tone you like, each one is really different from the other. I tried all the amp simulations before buying these 2. I realised the ENGL amps were the most versatile. Hands down!
ENGL guitar amp
The very best amp modeling I have ever heard. Everything about the amp sounds so real. I really like this buy.
Friedman BE100 Plug
Absolutely amazing!! First Guitar plug in I've used or heard that really sounds like a real amp cranked up. Definitely get the "brown sound" with it. Makes me want to sit and play guitar. I thought that Amp Rig was pretty good until I heard this. It's incredibly dynamic and touch responsive. Just love this plug to death!!
Love these amp sounds!
I own numerous guitar plugins and rigs being that I'm a guitarist!
This AMP is a 5 STAR all the way! My new go to!
With tweaking, you can get what you are looking for IMHO!
I have heard and recorded the actual Friedman BE-100, incredible amp. This plugin captures the vibe incredibly well! Lots of subtleties. Best amp sim I've ever heard, no doubt. I'm having a blast playing through it! I love the multitude of different cabinet & microphone combinations as well. I can't wait to have my friend over to play through it and get his impression (a phenomenal player and Friedman endorsed artist).
It's great plug-in
very nice tool. I love it.
Precise & Convenient
Every Apollo user should have this plugin, inserting it into the Console eases workflow especially when double checking mid tracking, was contemplating getting a rack tuner but now there is no need. It's very precise but not overly sensitive, thankfully i'll never have to use Logic's tuner again!
I like these a lot, the best hot rodded Marshall type sound I've gotten out of a plugin. Would LOVE to hear an amp sim dedicated to clean Fender sounds (not just the BF Deluxe or BF Twin).
Victor Smolski's Signature Amp
Not sure why UA or Brainworx has downplayed the fact that this is RAGE's Victor Smolski's signature model But I personally think they're doing the amp sim some disservice; by not at least telling users to check out Victor's walkthrough of the original amp on ENGL's site.
Also. Have to agree with the overall consensus that the factory presets are not very good at all. Check out the sound settings PDF posted on ENGL's page. Victor's presets translate over just fine to the plugin version. http://www.englamps.de/index.php?id=36&tx_ddfproducts_pi1[uid]=115
I was looking a long time for a good guitar plugin and finally I found it. Great sound, easy to handle. I love it
Not so bad, not so good either
It is so sensitive that is almost impossible to make it stop in the green position and stay there.
I tested with 5 great guitars and the behavior was the same.
But in the end they seemed to be tuned fine, so It is not the best tuner but it does the job.
I felt it took too much processing power out my Twin.
Anyways, I agree with the overall comments that it could be a free tool.
I have the Softube amps and both ENGL amps. I usually use the Fender in Amp Room for dirt and the ENGL 646 for clean tones. These Friedmans are great. I am able to get really nice clean and dirt tones from them. It took me a while to get the hang of them, but now that I understand how to gain stage to get what I want; they are really great.
I hated guitar simulation plugins before trying this collection. Simply beautiful. Very nice dynamic and beautiful saturation and sustain.
It's a tuner
It's a software tuner. If you set the ballistics right, it works great. I've even slapped it on an insert to find the pitch on a vocal track, which is pretty cool.
This 'Retro' ENGL sounds great and is pretty flexible. Not many of the IR 'chains' are all that great but enough are. I much prefer this modded amp to the new Friedman BE-100 plugin which is almost useless in my opinion
Just a tuner. You need it if you don't have one. Low prices...
At first I thought it sounded a little boxy, but with a little eq it sounded like perfection! I've never used the actual real versions of these sims but I dig them for tracking and reamping. Well done Brainworks.
If you need a tuner for the studio, look no further. 10/10.
Very good plugin for guitar amp modeling
Going forward the technology is getting close and closer to the real thing... at this point we are getting closer and with this Friedman plugin, we are indeed very close. Response time is great on the fly or afterward slapping it on a clean guitar and making it clean and open or gritty and dirty. MY favorite guitar amp sim plugin to date. Keep up the good work guys!
Great guitar recording chain!
My Tele plugged into the Apollo, UA610B Unison preamp and Friedman BE100 in the insert. I have the brilliant guitar tone with zero latency I always dreamt about! Thank you UA!
