Hi

totally agree, its hard to describe. this is the actual amp and pretty much the sound I am talking about. at 2:11. even at 2:51 with the harder edge it still, to me, has that chimey depth.

it has that chimey, sag, depth to it that I find so hard in sims.

YouTube

maybe you have something like that but even if not, i still think this plug is really cool

thanks

I went to a project I have with a similar-ish sound and pulled the preset from it: Dropbox - BassTouchyCrunch.preset

The track was using a telecaster on the bridge pickup, so it might be a bit dull for a strat. You'll have to tune that and the amount of crunch you want.

Channel A is the main sound, Channel B has a ducked delay on it and was slightly brighter for a chorus section (I think. I only checked channel A).

The basic sound is there though with that chimey light distortion that's really touchy with a slight saggy sound to it.

Is there some kind preset exchange on the Blue Cat site?? That would be a selling point.

We are very excited to announce the release of Blue Cat's Axiom, our new comprehensive and open multi effects processor and amp simulation software for guitar and bass, and a new software bundle, the "Axe Pack".



As announced earlier this year at NAMM, with its dual amp simulation channels based on the innovative Destructor engine, its 40 built-in effects and the ability to load third party plug-ins, Axiom offers an infinite number of amp models and effects that can be tweaked indefinitely.

Amp models can be chosen from hundreds of presets, or personalized with the amp editor that offers complete control over all the parameters. Axiom also includes a built-in version of Blue Cat's Late Replies for creative delays and reverbs, and a built-in version of Blue Cat's Destructor to create your own distortion pedals, cabinets or additional amp simulations.

Blue Cat's Axiom is available as a standalone application or plug-in (VST, VST3, AAX, Audio unit) for Mac and Windows, and can be purchased independently, or within the new Axe Pack bundle: this new software bundle for guitar & Bass gathers the new Axiom and full versions of the Destructor, Late Replies and PatchWork plug-ins (that can be used outside of Axiom).

We have an introduction offer for both Axiom or the Axe Pack bundle until May 19th (details below), and there are also several upgrade paths for registered customers. You can download demo versions and check out our videos to get a better idea!

Blue Cat's Axiom Main Features:
- Powerful and unlimited multi-effects processor and amp modeling software for guitar and bass.
- Realistic and fully customizable amp simulation based on Blue Cat's Destructor.
- Flexible routing: 2 parallel amp simulation channels with effects + input and master sections.
- 40 high quality built-in effects: wah, delays, reverb, pitch bender, EQ, filters, distortion units, compressor, gate, chorus, flanger...
- Includes Blue Cat's Destructor and Late Replies as built-in effects.
- Built-in high precision tuner.
- Open and extensible: load any third party VST, VST3 or Audio Unit (AU) plug-in.
- Delivered with thousands of presets for all sections and built-in effects.
- Load third party virtual instruments to play along.
- Global stereo spread control.
- Lock sections to prevent changes when loading presets.
- No latency.

System requirements:
- Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.7 or newer.
- PC running Windows Vista or newer.

Pricing:
Blue Cat's Axiom: $149 or 149 EUR instead of 199 (25% off until May 19th)
Blue Cat's Axe Pack: $249 or 249 EUR instead of 299 (16.5% off until May 19th)
Upgrade Offers: See our Axiom and Axe Pack upgrade paths.

And the final word goes to Martin Miller, who checked out our preview of Axiom earlier this week:

I'll set aside some time to work on that in the next week.

Great tutorial, thanks!

Just one thing: be cautious with phase shifting, as large amounts will introduce weird smearing on transients that you may not hear much in the mix, but which feel really strange when playing thru it.

Thanks for your reply! Finally it comes to life i think. :-) Checking component presets and tweak a bit and awesome tones develop. I like this!!!
