Blue Cat Audio has given the world early Christmas present: a free amp simulator that recreates a trio of classic amp tones.
Dishing up the dirt from your DAW: Blue Cat Audio’s amp simulator carefully crafts three flavours of valve-driven goodness. Best of all, it’s completely free.
Based on the archetypes of amplification, Blue Cat’s amp simulator comes in three varieties: Classic Clean, Classic Drive and Modern Drive – a broad palette to hone your guitar tone.
Control-wise, these amps get straight to the point – gain, drive, three-band EQ, tone and volume: all you need to create the base of your own guitar sound.
It’s available as a AAX, AU and VST plugin, so whatever system you run, it’s simply a matter of plugging in and playing, no dongle or registration required.
