Sometimes things can do more than just what they say on the tin – and this free distortion plugin is living proof!
Ignite Amps make ‘real’ guitar amps, but they’re not shy of the digital domain either. In fact, in order to build their latest bespoke amp the SHB1 they first modelled the amp in software to make sure it was to spec, and they’re giving that very plugin away to you!
SHB1 – Free Distortion Plugin
Ignite Amps’ slogan might be ‘Engineering for the Moshpit’, but that doesn’t mean the usefulness of this little plugin begins and ends with driving guitars to oblivion. I’ve just been playing with it over a vocal and its simple yet characterful controls are capable of subtle all the way through to the expected total destruction capabilities of the plugin.
SHB1 is available as Windows VST and Mac AU/VST (something we always try to ensure of the plugins we find for you at OD) and available for direct download. There are even a couple more free plugins over at Ignite Amps’ site! Enough talking…
