AcmeBarGig releases Preampus Classic Hybrid Series
AcmeBarGig has released the Preampus Classic Hybrid Series, a collection of 7 freeware classic hybrid amp effect plug-in for Windows.
Each of the heads in this series called the Preampus Classic Hybrid Series, are made up of components of classic amps all the way back to the very start of Electric guitar.
Preampus Classic Hybrid Series features
- Dick Head, takes you on a tonal journey through crazy high gain territories and Texas Bluesville before you arrive at your Jazz City destination.
- Meat Head, inspired by the amplifier power-houses that defined the tones of Classic Rock and Heavy Metal from the ’60’s to now.
- Knuckle Head, kicking out tones that range from sweet, glistening cleans to SRV and Yardbirds style smokin’ hot crunch right through to punishing high gain destruction – Knuckle Head does it all with style.
- Brain 2, inspired by some of the greatest amps ever, capable of some amazing vintage sounds, smooth blues, classic British crunch and things will get a little hairy with the gain cranked.
- Gimme Head, inspired by the classic tones of the 1970’s Punk movement and as such has all the attitudes already built in.
- Tamla Head, super-clean tones inspired by The Funk Brothers.
- Pecker Head, a vintage crunch machine inspired by the likes of Ritchie Blackmore – perfect for thick, saturated riffs and crunching power chords, this amp can definitely pack a punch.
Note: The Classic Hybrid amps are head only, you will need to use some external cabinet modeling (e.g. More information: LePou’s LeCab)
The Preampus Classic Hybird Series plug-ins are available as freeware VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC.
