Linda Audio has introduced a straight-forward guitar amp plugin for Windows. Capable of a very natural, classic tube amplifier sound, SuperCrunch does not model any real hardware amplifier.

Its range is from sparkling clean sound through gentle and not so gentle crunch tones to wild rock and metal distortion. There are controls for input and output gain, drive gain and bright and there is a choice of two channels – crunch and lead. You can also blend in the clean signal.

The very important part of this amp is the 8-band graphic equalizer which is engaged before the tube stages which allows very wide shaping of the distortion character. It can be also gain-compensated. On top of that there is also cabinet simulation which can be switched off and consists of two phase aligned impulse responses between which you can continuously blend. Finally, gate with adjustable threshold is also available.

Supercrunch is available to download for Windows in VST/VST3 plugin formats.
