Boogex is a free guitar amplifier AudioUnit, AAX, and VST plugin with a variety of sound shaping features, for professional sound and music production applications. With Boogex it is possible to get a heavy distorted sound as well as slight “jazzy” saturation sound. Boogex is also able to apply any speaker cabinet impulse response (selection of built-in impulses is available). The processing latency is close to zero making it possible to use Boogex for real-time guitar processing.
Boogex also includes the input gate module, and reverberation module derived from Voxengo OldSkoolVerb reverb plugin.
Boogex produces a nice “minimalist” rock music-geared sound which may be a bit noisy at higher overdrive settings; higher frequencies can be easily suppressed with its built-in Emphasis EQ.
Boogex can be also used as a plain stereo convolution processor when its “Amp” stage is turned off. The convolution module has zero latency and is not CPU-demanding. With the amp modes Boogex currently provides, it is not particularly well-suited for metal music, but can still be used as a cabinet impulse response processor for metal music.
