Fuse Audio Labs has launched launch the VPB-Bundle which they say brings an ensemble of some of the most popular and striking- sounding stomp boxes gracing countless pedal boards the world over to a collection of virtual pedals. Here's their press release with the details...
The VPB-Bundle comes complete with a nice surprise: Big-Sur can be downloaded and used completely for free without any limitations! Its hardware inspiration is acknowledged and adored for its grungy wall-of-sound-distortion, and, as such, is a perfect fit for powerful rhythm playing and heavy lead sounds. Similarly, Big-Sur's wide spectrum distortion doused with a healthy dose of fuzz and midrange authority literally cuts through any sonic clutter. By benefitting from an additional MIX control and optional oversampling, Big-Sur brings greater flexibility to the sought-after sound of the acclaimed op- amp beast.
But better still, the VPB-Bundle brings four more amazing individual stomp boxes optimized for DAW use to the production table:
- El-Germano -- homage to a popular icon of classic Sixties-style drive
- Octafish -- extremely natural-sounding suboctaver
- Gate-230 -- easy-to-use optical noise gate with clever hold function
- Chorus-65 -- subtle yet very musical-sounding vintage stereo chorus
All five plugins included in the VPB-Bundle support zero-latency operation for a perfect live and tracking experience.
"I was thinking about adding effects processing to accompany the F-59 and any amp simulations added to the Fuse Audio Labs arsenal in future for quite a while," Fuse Audio Labs CEO Reimund Dratwa discloses. "Fragments of DSP code for some of these had been sitting on the shelf for years, literally. The chorus, for instance, is a result of my research into finding models for authentic BBD emulations, so releasing a pack of five creative plugins just felt like the right thing to do."
While Big-Sur can be downloaded as part of the 14-day free trial version of the VPB-Bundle, it will remain completely free to use without any limitations.
