The bx_megadual plug-in from Brainworx faithfully emulates the sound of the legendary MESA/Boogie Dual Rectifier tube guitar amplifier, delivering the full range of tones found in the original amp, from sparkling cleans, to crunch, to soaring solo tones and full-blown high-gain metal mayhem. Its versatility makes it a useful tool for any producer/musician who records electric guitars, and a joy to play for any guitarist.
Not only is the tonal soul of the original captured, but so are all the features which give it such a wide sonic palette. You will find the Rhythm channel with its Pushed switch and the two Lead channels with their choice of Raw, Modern, and Vintage modes. Each channel comes with independent Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, & Master Volume controls. Also present is the Bold/Spongy switch to simulate reduced voltage to the output transformer (Variac) and the Vacuum/Solid switch to select between vacuum-tube or solid-state circuitry.
Accurate modeling of 64 impulse responses (IRs) was achieved using three Mega 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, delay, and power soak.
