Chrome Tone Native from McDSP is a plug-in for Digidesign Pro Tools systems and brings the world of custom guitar amps, boutique outboard gear and pedal effects inside the audio workstation. The collection of effects includes distortion, compression, gating, chorus, flange, EQ, wah, tremolo, spring reverb and tape delay. These effects can all be used together in a single stacked configuration, or as independent effects.
Chrome Tone effects can respond dynamically to the incoming audio, side chain audio, or various MIDI events including MIDI note and velocity and MIDI control data. The wah, tremolo, and chorus plug-ins feature a dynamics section that provides a fully controllable envelope follower to modify the effect itself. The LFO can be synced to MIDI beat clock in a variety of tempo derivatives and the rate, shape, and depth can be further modulated by the state of the dynamic section.
The Chrome Tone amp has five distortion modes for everything from light grit to full shred. Distortion Drive and Frequency controls allow fine-tuning of the distortion tone. The amp also includes a full featured noise gate, compression and sustain circuits, low cut filters, shelving and parametric EQ, a guitar cabinet simulator (great for direct recording) and a reverb.
The wah has three types of band pass filters, plus multiple low pass, high pass and phaser filter configurations that are available with 12, 24 and 36dB/octave slopes. All filter configurations have selectable frequency and Q values. The Chrome Tone tremolo allows the mixing of the processed signal with the unaffected signal. Tremolo speed-change tremolo affects are possible using the dynamic and auto sections. The chorus section has flange and two chorus modes. In the Stack configuration, there is also an up to one second long analog delay line.
