TCE’s Vintage Pedal Bundle (Launch Special)

If you’re looking to drop a little cash upgrading your stock pedal plugins, here’s a pretty good option. With chorus/flanger, boost/distortion, phaser, EQ and sustainer, the Vintage Pedal Bundle looks a lot like what a well appointed pedal board might typically look like. The spiel: “40 years ago our 5-pack of power, the SCF, Booster, Dual…

FREE: Whamdrive Pedal Sim VST

Here’s a weird one. An emulation of a Digitech Whammy pedal (made famous by the likes of Dimebag Darrell and Tom Morello). Now you can have all those screeching, plunging and just plain weird effects right on your desktop. The Whamdrive is, essentially, a pitch-shifter, but differs from others that you might have come across…

FREE: TSE B.O.D v2.0 VST

TSE Audio make great stuff, and the new B.O.D. VST is no exception. An emulator of a famous bass processing pedal, the B.O.D. will give you a storming bass tone right out of the box. All the expected features—level, low, high— but the real juice of this pedal is in the drive. A big, fat,…

The speaker simulation is achieved by a steep low-pass filter as well as some middle-frequency manipulation to resemble different…

FREE: TS-999 VST Overdrive Pedal Sim

Therefore, you’ve probably been on the lookout for a Tubescreamer clone that can provide even more oomph to the front end of your amp.…

FREE: Dirty Octave Fuzz VST

Everyone loves a good octave fuzz pedal, but if you’re looking for Hendrixy, Crosstown Trafficy tones, best look elsewhere. The Dirty Octave Fuzz VST (from DaMyfx) is a ratty-sounding, nasty piece of work. I loved it. I put it in the middle of a big chain—2 x tube screamers, Octave Fuzz, then cranked amp— and…

FREE: CharBooster Overdrive Pedal Sim

When you think of booster pedals, most of us think of a certain green beast produced by Ibanez. *cough* It would be foolish to think that the Tubescreamer is the be all and end of booster pedals. I mean surely there are myriad ways of increasing the volume of a signal going into an amp,…
