Included Plug-Ins

TS Overdrive

TS Overdrive

Released in late 1979, the Ibanez Tube Screamer TS808* overdrive pedal quickly became legend for its dynamic, touch-sensitive distortion, and throaty midrange. A mainstay on the pedalboards of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, Brad Paisley, and more, the TS808 holds a hallowed place in guitar lore. The TS Overdrive for UAD-2 and Apollo nails every detail of this vintage grind machine, allowing guitarists of all styles a vast array of sounds at tracking or mixdown.

Bermuda Triangle

Bermuda Triangle

When it comes to unmistakable, classic fuzz/distortion, the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff reins supreme. Vintage Big Muffs are prized for powerfully fat sustain, aggressive attack, and an over-the-top sonic personality. Inspired by the hallowed early-’70’s “triangle” version of the Big Muff, the Bermuda Triangle plug-in for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces delivers the same bad-ass attitude and fiendish fuzz that has graced classic records from Pink Floyd to the White Stripes.

Raw Distortion

Raw Distortion

Equal parts warm overdrive and raunchy grind, the Pro Co Rat distortion pedal has been a vital cog in countless guitar rigs since the late ’70s. From Jeff Beck to John Scofield, players of all stripes revere the Rat’s tonal range, smoothness, and heaping amounts of gain. The Raw Distortion for UAD-2 and Apollo is a faithful emulation of this legendary distortion box, delivering all of the grit, dynamics, and raunch of the classic hardware.

Unison Technology for Authentic Tone, Touch, and Feel

Unison Technology for Authentic Tone, Touch, and Feel

The interaction of your instrument and the first pedal in your signal chain is an essential ingredient to capturing a stompbox’s unique character and tone. Thanks to Universal Audio’s Unison technology, your signal gets the same circuit interaction, gain range, and clip points of these vintage pedals when you plug into a UA audio interface. This gives you the true tone, feel, and response of the original hardware.

Raw Distortion

I have the Raw pedal, NOT the Marshall pedal so I am reviewing that and NOT the others in the bundle. I love bussing guitar and vocals to this to add a bit more bite to the tracks and use it frequently, must have tool to have in your collection.

Distortion Essentials Bundle

Good, i'm happy with the tones although feel it's a bit overpriced considering the Raw pedal comes free. For this price including a tuner (or just building one into console) doesn't feel like too much to ask, especially since many are using the hardware for tracking.

Great plugins

I bought this bundle because I wanted to use the Ibanez on 808's. The Ibanez is sounding really really great! The only complains I have is that I can't use the Ibanez, but I have to use the TS Overdrive. I have used the Ibanez in several paid projects, and now I have to replace them all and match the settings. And second, you have to buy this whole bundle if you only need 1 plugin. And that said, everyone already owns the Raw plugin... So yeah, but the quality it good at least so I can't complain.

Not the best from UA

I prefer to use the real stomp boxes as they sound much more realistic to me. I love most of UA plugins and have spent lots and am usually blown away. That being said, I wish I had saved the cash on this bundle. Maybe add more tube screamer analogue circuits, sucks it only does one. The fuzz pedal Sounds best of the three to me. They work if you don’t have the pedals themselves though.

TS is good but why bundle?

I just need TS so why bundle?

Hm. Nah.

To me, these pedals are a little bit too much all over the place. They're a bit hard to control and I have a hard time finding good use for these.
Also, they're a bit too expensive.

interesting but...

There is a lot of ways to use this plug-ins. It sunds interesting, sometime it`s useful but in my oppinion, it`s fare from hardwere, oryginal stuff. I like it but as a kind of alternative way to use overdrive or distortion..

Why is the RAW in there when it’s in the free bundle

Yeh the Tube Screamer is good, you already own the RAW and I have no use for the other one. Luckily it was on sale and I had a voucher so it was only stupidly exorbitantly priced instead of the normal highway robbery. You’ve got us over a barrel and you know it.

Good but overpriced

Why the “bundle” when one of them is free? We all know most UA plugins are good, but we are all captive to being ripped off on their stupid pricing as there’s no other choice. It hurts a bit less on sale, but only because it seems like you’re getting a bargain when a $250 plugin is $150. Why is every other companies plugins so much cheaper. These guys are up there with Avid ProTools in exploiting every last dollar out of their clients they basically have by the balls.

Good chemi but why bundle?

TS9 and the plexi sounds chemi is really good.
I just connect my guitar to apollo then that’s all. I can enjoy great plexi sound.
But by making a bundle with other 2 pedals, price increased and i had to pay for the pedals i don’t want.
