Boogex is a free guitar amplifier plug-in with a variety of sound shaping features.  With Boogex it is possible to get heavy distorted sound as well as slight distortion sound.  Boogex is also able to apply any speaker cabinet impulse response (selection of built-in impulses is available).  Processing latency is very modest - 96 samples (2.1 ms at 44.1kHz).  Boogex comes with several example factory presets.

well, thanks Aleksey!

Thank you Aleksey! i'm sure all of us will agree that this is a huge gift to those of us using pro audio software, and that this product ranks up there as one of the best freeware plugins on the web.Unlike alot of freeware this guitar amp sim is so good that many of us would've paid for it.That's why i know many of us are very happy now (i could'nt believe it, so i downloaded it to see if beeping noises where in it), and as soon as others find out about this plugin they'll be just as happy (you may have a lot more traffic to your site).Outside of some lack of features this product truly does compete with some very expensive guitar amp sims.The ability to load and controll impulses is a great feature that stands out from other guitar amps i've seen,and this truly is a push in the right direction, adding unlimited versatility.If your freeware amp sim is this good i can't wait to see your commercial version!Thanks again!


thanks!

Thanks for your feedback!


Wow, that's fantastic!

I've been using the beta for the past couple days and I was very impressed on the clean tones and the slightly overdriven sounds.  The high gain settings still leave a little to be desired, although I have yet to hear any plugin pull this off decently yet.  But I'm sure if anyone can do it, you can. :)

I sure wasn't expecting this thing to be free and I was almost afraid to get to attatched to it, since I wouldn't have been able to get it for a while.  But now, I'm gonna use it till I drop! :D

There does seem to be a bug in the official release.  For the middle two bandpass filters on the paragraphic EQ, cut/boost setting seems to be backwards.  Cutting frequencies on the graph actually boosts them volume wise and boosting on the graph cuts the volume.

Also, how do you go about creating impulses for it?  Do you just blast white noise through the amp and record it like you do for creating convoltion reverb impulses?  If so, how do you capture the dynamics of the amp as you pick harder or softer (or does the plugin do this)?  I have a friend who has a friend with a Mesa Dual Rectifier, and I'd love to get some nice impulses from it.

You have done it again Aleksey!! :)

Emphasis filters works in reverse at once: at first it applies filtering YOU specify, but at the end stage it applies de-emphasis filter with reversed gain.

Impulse creation is done like with reverbs or other devices.  You have to have a decent mic and room for this to work.  Ideally, it's better to detach amplifier from the speaker cabinet itself and record speaker impulse alone.

I'm not sure I understand this.  How do I get it to reverse the filtering at the end?  Because right now, when I move the EQ curve "up" the sound goes "down" and vice versa....  I'm not sure how to get it to behave normally.

I don't think he would appreciate me tearing his amp apart. :D But the impulses should still (hopefully) turn out pretty well.  That amp's much better than anything I have here, so it can't hurt. lol

You get reverse filtering because distortion lowers those frequencies.  Probably, that's not the most obvious approach, but it does work IMO.

Actually, you do not have to break the combo - you only need to run the sweep at lowest drive setting possible so that amp's effect is minimal.
