Free Vst Plugin – Substantial Amp – Amplifier Simulator Effect,
Pretty nasty sounding guitar effect from RunBeerRun
‘Substantial Amp is an amplifier simulator for the guitar. The point here is screaming riffs. This is done by filters that feedback into themself for resonance, a harmonic eq which is pretty powerful, and a cabinet circuit consisting of 3 delays that feedback into themself, in series, as in one feeds the next.
There’s 4 distortion presets and one clean.
Top left side, volume in, if you’re using distortion turn it down some.
I know it’s hard to read because of the color scheme. Cutoff/res relates to high pass filters, there’s 2 of these on there. And a feedback knob next to that. I’ve set the limits on these controls so there’s hardly any chance of overload.
The 1st filter then goes into a single short-timed delay cabinet. (cab size and feedback controls). Then into distortion, there’s an on/off switch.
Then into bitcrush, on/off switch again. Then into filter2, then into the Harmonic eq(bottom left). There’s a “fundamental” knob that relates to the eq. It’s a cool eq.
Then it goes into the 3-delay cabinet thing, right side. They go in series, this creates resonance which is what this plugin is about. I mean being in series like that, creates a lot of resonance.
Then into a limiter.‘
