Hot on the heels of DF-Q, audio entrepreneur and producer Joey Sturgis (Joey Sturgis Tones, Unstoppable Recording Machine, Drumforge) has released his newest Guitar Amp Simulator, Toneforge Guilty Pleasure.
Toneforge Guilty Pleasure features a custom high-gain amp, four new pedals (overdrive, delay, reverb, and, for the first time in Toneforge, a Wah pedal), two cabs (Mesa and Orange) and four microphones, the ability to load individual Impulse Responses (IRs), and improved post-processing. Designed by Joey Sturgis to create a final mix guitar tone immediately, the amp and effects work together in a way that "makes it almost impossible to get a bad sound out of the plugin” claim makers.
The ethos here, like all the other Joey Sturgis Tones products, is to provide plugins for music creators who need things to just sound good without much tinkering. These plug-ins are born out of recording sessions, and each are tested and used on real world albums.
Toneforge Guilty Pleasure is available now for an introductory price of $65, normal retail price $79.
