Classic guitar pedal effects
DP7's suite of stunningly accurate classic guitar pedal emulations are modeled after all-time favorites from BossÂ®, MXRÂ®, Electro-HarmonixÂ®, IbanezÂ® and others. These stomp box plug-ins produce authentic tones made famous by the signature guitar sounds of artists such as Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, Carlos Santana, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and many other rock/pop legends.
When users dial in settings for their favorite guitar tones, the resulting sound is identical to -- and indistinguishable from -- the real thing. The suite includes nine pedals, including the Tube Wailerâ„¢, Ãœber Tubeâ„¢, Diamond Driveâ„¢, RXTâ„¢, Delta Fuzzâ„¢, Wah Pedalâ„¢ and others. Users can experiment with hundreds of tones and thousands of combinations.
Custom '59â„¢ meticulously models three all-time classic guitar amplifiers: the FenderÂ® BassmanÂ®, the MarshallÂ® JTM45Â® and the Marshall JCM800Â®. Users can adjust tone settings, drive and tube combinations to produce rich, luscious guitar tones that faithfully reproduce the sound of each amp. But Custom '59 goes further: users can mix and match the preamp tube, preamp circuit and tone stack from each model to create their own custom amps. The possibilities for tone are virtually limitless, all born from the iconic pedigree of three legendary originals.
Live Room | Gâ„¢
DP7's Live Room | G is a superb physical modeling speaker cabinet emulator plug-in with four mic channels (two mono and one stereo), mixable mic positions (close, near and far) and 3-band EQ per channel. What convolution did for reverb, Live Room | G does for speaker cabinet emulation, thanks to the next-generation physical modeling technology at its core. Engineered for the unprecedented power of today's personal computers, the modeling technology in Live Room | G captures every nuance and detail of the hundreds of factors that interact to recreate the rich, detailed sound of a speaker cabinet in a real room recorded by four separate mics.
Five cabinet models are supplied, including a 4x12 Modern for ultra-distorted chunks and sludge, a 4x12 Vintage for those '80's hair-band tributes and '70's proto-metal, and a 2x12 Combo for Muscle-Shoals-style southern rock and country.
Live Room | G physically models the process of recording any audio signal through a guitar amplifier in a studio room with multiple adjustable microphones. Four mixable mic channels are provided (two mono plus one stereo), each with their own predelay, sidechain output, 3-band EQ, solo/mute and volume. Each mono mic provides five positional options around the speaker cabinet: On axis, Off axis, Near, Rear and Far omni. Stereo (far) mic channels provide four configurations: XY, ORTF, Blumlein and Wide Omni. Detailed graphics in the plug-in window display an overhead view of the chosen speaker cabinet and mic positions around it.
First and foremost, Live Room | G is an indispensable component (usually the final stage) for DP7 guitar tone signal chains. Users can combine Digital Performer's stomp pedal effects, Custom '59 amp emulator and Live Room | G's cab emulation in virtually unlimited combinations to create unprecedented realism for guitar parts, bass parts, and any amped instrument.
Live Room | G opens a world of possibilities for hearing any track through a speaker cabinet. What might take hours of setup and tinkering with a real cabinet in a room with multiple mics will take just a few moments to set up on screen in a Digital Performer project. Users can experiment with just about any sound source to add depth, dimension and organic feel.
