Overview

People love the Boss MT-2™ for its burl and versatility as one of the industry’s standard guitar stomp pedals. Armed with an onboard EQ, this pedal offers precise control with over-the top distortion when you need it. From Black Sabbath to Santana to Sublime, players have all found a place for it as an indispensable link in their guitar’s signal chain.

Now, Brainworx has put all that versatile tone into the bx_metal2 plugin. One of the most loved stomp boxes is now conveniently available as an addition to your digital pedal board. Produce searing leads by boosting the high end and cutting the lows, or melt faces with +15 dB of low boost for heavy metal barbarism. As with many Brainworx guitar emulations, workflow has been improved beyond the hardware by rearranging the controls into a more convenient and straightforward interface. Simply set gain and distortion level, then EQ to taste.

    Fir a start I love it because it's AAX DSP! Wide palet of sounds, can be just what's needed for that elusive guitar sound that'll poke through. Only negative is distortion is somewhat all or nothing.
