Overview

The Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 stands out at everything it does. From crystal clear and highly detailed clean sounds to its harmonically complex and eloquent overdrive, this amp will hold its sonic integrity at any volume level.

Developed by Brainworx and officially endorsed by Fuchs Audio Technology, the Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 Amplifier plugin captures all of the nuance and tube-powered tone shaping of this legendary amplifier. The clean channel has a "brite" and a "deep" switch, as well as a "rock/jazz" switch, which changes the way the tone controls operate. Rock is a more aggressive and punchier, bright tone, while jazz is lean and audiophile-like, being more balanced and smoother. The clean channel also acts as a preamp to the overdrive channel.

The overdrive channel features separate OD in and OD out controls. OD-in sets the level of saturation in overdrive, while the OD out control sets the final balance between clean and dirty channels. There is a global master volume and an accent control, which adds presence and edge to the output stage. The tone controls and EQ switches are all active during overdrive use, including all boosts.

This amp is also armed with passive "high," "mid," and "low" controls. The "high control" pulls for a boost in mid frequencies while the "mid control" pulls for a gain boost.

Apart from the exacting emulation of the original Fuchs Overdrive Supreme, the crown jewel of Fuchs amplification product line, the plugin also comes with 82 Recording Chains with multiple speaker cabinet impulse responses, FX Rack features vintage delay, noise gate, filter controls, internal power soak, pre– and post-amp bypass, as well as a scalable user interface.

    Stunning coding, I've been after the Larry Carlton sound for many years, and this is the closest I've got after many amps and amp sims.
