Overview

Brainworx has become famous for their fantastic UAD-2 amp emulations. Boutique tube guitar amps turned into plugins that not only sound like a tube amp, but feel like the real thing when you play them.

Many of these amp sims are UAD-2 exclusive, but bx_rockrack offers you 8 stunning amps at an amazing price, for any DAW including AAX DSP!

After years of developing exacting models from coveted amp brands like AMPEG, GALLIEN KRUEGER, ENGL®, Chandler® Friedman® and Mesa®, Brainworx has taken what they’ve learned and rolled it into bx_rockrack V3.

This is a complete redesign of their flagship multi-amp plugin.

The bx_rockrack V3 boasts eight famous amp models in a single plugin, including the now infamous bx_metal 666. On top of that, 40 impulse responses are included, recorded through Brainworx' amazing NEVE VXS72 console in Germany.

    A superb amp simulation that has all the character you'd want. From subtle warming re-amped sounds to full-on brutal distortion walls, this is a hell of a good amp sim!

    The only thing I don't like is that the delay won't reproduce enough highs. There should be an option for a hi-fi delay for more variety. The lo-fi is great for some things, perfect for Hadley… Read More
