HoRNet Plugins has announced the release of a brand new audio plugin that is designed to deliver the reggae signature sound for you guitar and much more.

A collaboration with Valter Vincenti, the HoRNet Jamming Rock emulates the typical reggae-guitarist set up.

Hornet Jamming Rock (or JR 77) is a plugin designed for emulating the typical reggae-guitarist set up. Jamming Rock is inspired by a famous Japanese jazzy amplifier (with a unique solid- state design optimized for producing a clean sound) used by reggae jazz guitarists such as Al Anderson e Julian “Junior” Marvin, (when they played with Bob Marley & The Wailers), Peter Tosh, Ernest Ranglin, Earl Chinna Smith, Cat Core and many other.

Why is the jazzy amplifier so popular with reggae musicians? There are two main reasons. The first: it is a very reliable amplifier and does not require constant maintenance, which is why it is also very popular with Jamaican sound engineers, who often request it as a backline in most reggae concerts. Secondly, the JC (..ok, the jazzy amplifier… ) offers guitarists a professional sound at a reasonable price, and furthermore, being a solid state amplifier, it does not require tube replacement and periodic maintenance (and we faithfully replicate this feature in our plugin).
