Scuffham Amps has released version 2.25 of S-Gear, the collection of guitar amps, speaker cabinets and effects for Windows and Mac.
The really special thing about S-Gear is the amazing high quality of guitar amp tones achieved simply by plugging your guitar into a computer via an audio interface. S-Gear gives you a professional guitar sound without the expense and hassle. We are talking about the sound of a high quality tube amp, turned up loud, and mic’d up professionally in a suitable acoustic space. S-Gear’s four boutique designed amps, coupled with accurate convolution based speaker cabinet emulation, provide a massive range of guitar tones.
Changes in S-Gear v2.25
AAX 32 and 64-bit plug-in format for ProTools 10 and ProTools 11.
ProTools 10 users must upgrade to version 10.3.6 or later.
[v2.24] Fix problems with 32-bit S-Gear versions on OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
[v2.24] Fix bug where IMPULSES UI minimises after importing a custom impulse response.
Scuffham Amps has released version 2.2 of S-Gear, a collection of guitar amps, speaker cabinets and effects implemented in software for Windows and Mac.
As well as the new Wayfarer amp, this release also brings loads of other improvements and several bug fixes.
The new Wayfarer amp is easily the most versatile amp we have designed to date. It feels like having a selection of vintage Brown and Blackface Fenders, along with a MK series Boogie all rolled into the same easy to drive amp. We hope you have a lot of fun getting to know this amp, and hopefully it might inspire some new music too.
Changes in S-Gear v2.2
Tap and Tempo Sync in DelayThing.
Two Amp configurations per preset.
Improved Noise Gate.
Phase switch on Convolver channels.
CPU utilisation improvements (approximately 10% reduction for amps).
Scuffham Amps has updated its S-Gear guitar effect plug-in to version 2.1.
Headlining this release is the new RoomThing reverb unit, and if you haven’t already done so, we suggest you take a listen to Jerry Stevenson’s sound clips on YouTube. RoomThing is a versatile algorithmic reverb processor capable of producing very musical reverbs including realistic rooms and halls, big open and fresh ambient spaces, short decay effects for cabinet enhancement, and even some great sounding spring reverb emulations.
But that’s not all! S-Gear v2.1 also includes great new functionality such as saving and recalling presets for each individual device and support for drag & drop when importing presets. For all the details, download the updated manual here.
For Cubase and Nuendo fans on the MAC, this release sees the full inclusion of VST3 format with the OS X installation. We had a rather long Beta on this, but with thanks to those who helped out, the result is a really good plug-in.
Changes in S-Gear v2.1
