JST Toneforge Menace Demo

I got the JST Toneforge Menace plugin last night so I thought I’d give it a quick test before I write a review and make a proper demo video next week.

GN Line 6 Helix Ubersonic Free Patch

GN Line 6 Helix Ubersonic Free Patch

Here’s a free patch for the Line 6 German Ubersonic model.

The German Ubersonic is based on the Bogner Ubershall so it’s a pretty heavy sounding amp model. As always, my patches are made for recording and sound best in a mix. If you want to use it live or on its own it’ll need a little tweaking.

It can be downloaded for free using the link below.

Mercuriall Tube Amp Ultra 530 Review

I’ve reviewed a couple of Mercuriall products now so I thought it was time to take a look at the Tube Amp Ultra 530. This plugin is based on the ENGL E530 preamp. It’s an interesting choice so have Mercuriall captured the magic of the popular metal preamp? Continue reading →
