The SimulAnalog suite is a collection that started life as an academic research project about the modelling of electric devices.
“What about SimulAnalog Guitar Suite? It is a freeware and no profit set of plugin. Born as a test bench for SimulAnalog research, we saw that without any effort it could be distributed to musicians that may find it useful. That’s why it is given as is, with no support and with a very rough user interface.”
Even though it’s getting old in the tooth now, the SimulAnalog still stacks up with modern plug-ins.
∙ Fender Twin 1969 (Guitar amplifier)
∙ Marshall JCM900 Dual Reverb (Guitar amplifier)
∙ Boss DS-1 (Distortion stompbox)
∙ Boss SD-1 (Super Overdrive stompbox)
∙ Tube Screamer (Overdrive stompbox)
∙ Oberheim PS-1 (Phaser stompbox)
∙ Univox Univibe (Modulations stompbox)
One of the major let downs of this collections was its lack of a decent GUI.
Seriously, look at this thing:
Gah. Luckily, some cool cat has put together a nice interface so you don’t have to hurt your eyes (link at the bottom).
Freeware for Windows.
