The bx_bassdude plug-in from Brainworx accurately emulates the classic sound of the iconic early 1960's Blonde guitar/bass amplifier. It produces warm cleans until you hit about 4 on the Volume dial, at which point a smooth tube overdrive with rich harmonics and a touch-sensitive response, magically emerges.
While capturing the vintage feel of the original, the bx_bassdude offers all the features that are essential to creating the amp's sought after tonal nuances. It comes with a Normal channel for guitars and a Bass Instrument channel that lets you warm up a bass track quickly and easily. Each channel is equipped with independent Volume, Treble, and Bass controls. The Presence knob adds versatility to your overall sound.
Accurate modeling of 35 Impulse Responses (IRs) was achieved using several cabinets and nine high-end modern & vintage microphones, all running through a Neve VXS72 console and outboard EQs from Millenia, SPL, and elysia. The resulting tones can be selected from a simple menu inside the interface.
This plug-in version also offers useful effects not found on the original unit including noise-gate, low-fidelity delay, and power soak.
