HoRNet releases HoRNet WahWah Guitar Effect Plug-in
 
http://www.hornetplugins.com/wp-cont...ot-291x300.png

HoRNet has released WahWah, another tool in the guitar effect collection.
The HoRNet WahWah is a digital replica of a vintage effect from the 70s made famous by guitarist and keyboard players around the world. This pedal represents a real signature sound for funky music and is an essential tool in every guitar player's setup.
HoRNet faithfully recreated the sound of the pedal starting from the analysis of the circuit diagram, then simulated it and measured the response. After having created a good sounding wah effect by itself they added an envelope follower that will let you modulate the "wah" sound with attack and release set independently so you will be able to have a sort of "auto wah".

Features:
  • Classic wah-wah effect emulation.
  • Analog saturation.
  • Auto wah with attack and release.
  • Mac OS X (>=10.5 Intel only) and Windows support.
  • 64-bit compatibility both on Mac and Windows.
  • Audio Units VST2.4, VST3, RTAS and AAX format.

Price: 5,99€ on HoRNet makes the best vst plugins VST, AU, Pro Tools or just 3,59€ if you own the complete bundle.

Looks cool. I was about to buy it but...not to sound like a cheapskate but i have a 30% discount coupon that i received for taking the hornet survey but i won't work. at checkout i get 'this discount is not active'. i don't recall any mention of an expiration when i got the code.

i'll try the demo and take it from there.

You are right, I forgot to re-activate the discount code after the last sale.

You can use it now!

Saverio, thanks for doing that. I just purchased and am looking forward to trying it out later.

I just played with it for a bit. It sounds great and is very easy to automate in PT 12. i'll be using it a lot. well done.

A wah-wah with an envelope follower and automation for less than the price of a couple of coffees? Instant purchase!

LejonBrames 23rd May 2016 05:56 PM

Just remembered I did the survey too, but forgot to save the discount code :( I thought it would have been mailed to me.

Just picked this up tho, should be fun

Brilliant! The envelope follower is great for dynamic wah-ing but automate it with an LFO synced to the BPM in Reaper and bam, nailed it.

It is :heh:

Anyone have any recommended settings to start with?

cprompt 25th May 2016 12:37 AM

I've been automating it with an LFO in Reaper. I set this to about 70% strength so it doesn't go all the way up - I find the wah sweet spot about from 25% (where 0% would be fully bass and 100% fully treble) to about 65% - that's where the magic seems to happen. Also, I decrease the attack and release to 5% or 10% so it's more immediate.

If I use the modulation, I'll set the starting point to that 25% I mentioned above and module to about 65% so the sound is the same but of course, it's input-dependent. Same attack and release settings for that "bite".

The great thing about this is, there's no bad sound, but there's a definite sweet-spot I like around the middle of the wah where the bass tips in to treble. Hard to explain though!

Hi, the parameter is called "wah level" in the Reaper autoamation parameter list
