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.

You can already find a few presets on our website, and we have just started a presets sharing topic on our forum.

Feel free to share your Axiom, amp sim (Destructor) or delay (Late Replies) presets there!

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!!!

By the way, if you are an owner of Axiom already, we have uploaded a new preview of Axiom 1.1 (expected to be released soon...), with a couple of surprises!

There is also a new preview of Destructor. Check out the download page (link received by email upon purchase), and please send us feedback!

Heads Up! Blue Cat's Axiom 1.1 is now officially available as part of a larger software update.

It is a free update that includes the following:
- Load impulse responses (IR) in pre or post filters of the amp simulator. The frequency reponse of IRs can be shifted and mixed together with the usual filter settings.
- The built-in EQ plug-in can also load and manipulate impulse reponses.
- Drag and drop support:
-- drag and drop plug-ins between slots (copy or move).
-- drop the plug-in before another to insert it in the chain
-- drag and drop plug-ins between several instances of Axiom or accross plug-ins (compatible with the latest preview of Late Replies, MB-7 Mixer and PatchWork).
-- drag and drop .dll, .vst, .vst3, or .component files directly from the Finder or Explorer onto plug-in slots.
-- drag and drop .plgnfo files (previously saved from the software) directly from the Finder or Explorer onto plug-in slots.
-- drag the amp simulator, and drop it on any slot, like any other plug-in.
-- drop the amp simulator onto channel A or B to copy the amp model to the other channel.
-- drag and drop amp channel (A or B) to copy the entire channel settings to the other channel.
- Fixed Joe's Bowl factory preset that included an instance of PatchWork.

Also, with the "Guitar Month" on bluecataudio.com, you can get Axiom for $149 (or 149 EUR) instead of 199 until November 1st.

Enjoy!
