Overview

Hi-gain amp heads are perfect for getting deep and heavy guitar sounds, with lots of bottom end and powerful saturation. The only problem with the real ones is the risk of blowing up cabinets, blowing out eardrums, and pulverizing your neighbors' walls.

Fortunately, Brainworx provides these savagely satisfying tones in the box with the bx_rockergain100 plugin. It digitally recreates every nuance of the coveted Orange Rockerverb, a truly straightforward 2-channel valve-driven powerhouse, based on BX's proprietary modeling technology.

The bx_rockergain100 gives you instant access to over sixty years of amp design from one of the best amp brands in rock history. They have defined the heavy, crunchy sound of British tube heads with their brightly-colored amps since the late sixties. But this amp, released just ten years ago, was the first super-saturated hi-gain model.

Delivering the earth-quaking heavy guitar tones of the new millennium, this amp can be heard on monumental recordings by major metal bands like Slipknot and Korn.

Not only does bx_rockergain100 nail the heart and soul of this iconic British tube amp, but you'll also find all the extra features you've come to expect from Brainworx, including the full FX Rack with its syncable lo-fi delay, noise gate, and amazing filters, as well as power soak and power amp bypass.

The advanced component-level modeling doesn't end there, either. Brainworx also provides 120 different high-end recording chains (ready-to-go IRs produced on BX's NEVE console!) you can use along with the bx_rockergain100, giving you the opportunity to use this amp anywhere and everywhere with a wide variety of boutique recording equipment, for maximum creativity with minimal noise—and absolutely no maintenance.

    When I turned on bx_rockergain and strummed the first chord it instantly brought me back to 2015 when I worked with the real amp for 9 hrs straight. If this plugin can take me back to something… Read More

    The tonality and the amps vibe translates very well. It’s rad and scary at the same time!

  • The best Orange amp VST

    ★★★★★
    by Thanorval
    Sound really close to the original. The best Orange amp on the VST market to this day. I like the fact that these amps come naked without graphic eqs and effects you don't need in a DAW.

    Awesome emulation of that high gain Orange sound. I usually track clean guitars, but when I need something kind of nasty, this does the trick.
  • Sounds Great!

    As an owner of an Orange Rockerverb 50 Combo I can honestly say I'm really blown away by this plugin. The character is there and it definitely feels right. Great job!
