Release version 1.0.3
The most modern bass tones are characterized by a dynamic and complex sound obtained using different tools and recording techniques.
For this reason, Nembrini Audio has decided to create the Blackice Beta Gamma Bass Amplifier plugin based on Darkglass Alpha Omega 900 bass guitar head and complete it with a virtual recording chain worthy of the best recording studios.
This innovative bass amplifier combines a custom-tuned overdrive/distortion circuit, a studio-grade VCA compressor and a flexible six-band graphic equalizer.
In the amp section, you can blend the clean signal with the incredible Beta Gamma Distortion circuit that can morph from tight and defined overdrive to raw and brutal distortion.
A custom VCA style compressor allows you to optimize the bass signal before hitting the six bands graphic equalizer carefully tuned to sculpt your bass tone.
To obtain a great and usable modern bass sound Nembrini Audio has included an enhanced recording chain with 4 selected bass guitar cabinets and 4 microphone emulations, plus a parallel D.I. Out signal with a console-style compressor that you can blend with 3 ambient sounds.
When available in the selected bass cab you can also adjust the tweeter level.
IMPULSES RESPONSE LOADER
Instead of the included bass cabs, you can also use your favourite cab impulse responses utilizing our Impulses Loader that let you load up to two 3rd-parties impulse responses, blend them together and mix them with the amplifier D.I. output.
A convenient browser window has been added so you can easily search through all your third parts IR files.
BASS ENHANCER / NOISE GATE
Nembrini Audio has also included the Bass Enhancer circuit inspired by Little Labs Voice Of God to increase your low end. This is a fundamental tool for your five-string bass guitar tone!
In the Blackice Beta Gamma Bass Amplifier, there is a selected set of cabinet impulses created by www.choptones.com.
