1. The Bluesman

 
The Bluesman
 

The Bluesman is an analog modeled simulation of the vintage *Marshall® Blues Breaker™, low gain overdrive stompbox introduced in the 90s to replicate the tone of the 1962 Blues Breaker amp.

The Bluesbreaker has been introduced in the ‘91, along with the Drivemaster and the Shredmaster. Its round and smooth overdrive made this pedal one of the most sought after stompboxes by vintage gear collectors and boutique pedal designers.

Furthermore, we added new exciting mods to the original circuit for more tonal possibilities!

  • Pre and Post effect gain
  • Mix control

The Shredder
 

The Shredder is an analog modelled simulation of the vintage *Marshall® Shredmaster™, overdrive stompbox introduced in the 90s to provide the high gain distortion of a tube amplifier.

The Shredmaster has been introduced in the ‘91, along with the Bluesbreaker and the Drivemaster, as part of their “amp in a box” series.

Furthermore, we added new exciting mods to the original circuit for more tonal possibilities!

3. Boost X

 
Boost X
 

Smart Saturation

Boost X is a dynamic and smart Saturation/Overdrive plugin.

Used to make any sound warmer by adding extra harmonics.

Many other Saturation/Overdrive plugins use a static (stateless) algorithm that doesn’t change depending on the audio passed through. These effects rely on a gain boost, when the audio hits a certain threshold then Saturation is applied. They are either on or off and the amount of saturation is heavily dependent on the loudness of the audio passed into them.

Boost X is different, it reacts to the input audio and applies the perfect amount of saturation at the current loudness. This means even quiet sounds can be overdriven without any gain in loudness. Boost-X also compensates for perceived loudness, bringing the loudness down even further so you get nice rich harmonics added to your sound, without destroying the balance of your mix.

Gives your sounds a rich depth and warmth that sits well in your mix, bringing your vocals and instruments to life with a true analog warmth and feel.

Get it with Boost X – Dynamic Saturation.

Boost X Features

  • Dynamic saturation – Stateful saturation which dynamically responds to the input signal.
  • 16 times Oversampling – For maximum aliasing repression and highest quality sound.
  • 7 Saturation types.
  • Large amount knob for fine control.
  • High definition resizable GUI.

The Driver
