United Plugins has announced an update to the Electrum Core, the light version of the Electrum guitar amp and cab effect plugin.

Version 1.5 comes with several compatibility and performance improvements, as well as the possibility to use it for free.

Some of UnitedPlugins’ effects have “2nd hand” versions. After their trial periods expire they do not start producing unpleasant noises but continue working in your projects. You only lose access to some of their features. Namely, those are Front DAW, Royal Compressor, QuickAG and QuickBass. Newly, Electrum Core joins the club.

Electrum Core is a light version of Electrum – the all-in-one guitar solution. The Core version is stripped of all effects and offers only the Amp and Cab modules and also the Automatic Volume setup. Its 5 amp types can deliver anything from clean guitars to heavy tones. Electrum Core is meant to serve in quick operations and to get you to the goal as quickly as possible.

Priced 49 EUR, Electrum Core is available to try with a 15-day fully working trial version. If you want to use the limited free version just install the trial and let it expire.

The plugin is available from the United Plugins website and at distributors Plugin Boutique and ADSR Sounds.
