Although this bundle is quite old, its amp and effect modeling properties are still up to par with today’s commercial software.
Having been created as a test bench for their research, the developers generously allowed it to be freely downloaded and used by musicians. However because it does not have commercial funding, the software comes “as is”, with a simplistic user interface and no technical support.
Looking past the rough interface, the developer assures that every component in the audio path of the gear has been modelled, except for the secondary effects of some active devices. It is said that the sounds produced by these plugins have less than -40dB of difference when compared with the the actual hardware. Since they don’t have any commercial interest, this means that there is no marketing hype or deception involved – just great sounding emulations.
