Audified takes Linda Audio under its wing with Linda RockStack guitar amp plug-in
/MUSEWIRE – Music News/ — Audified is proud to take experienced mastering/mixing engineer, musician, and programmer Martin Linda’s namesake Linda Audio under its wing with Linda RockStack — realizing a long-held dream of creating a virtual guitar amp sim suited to a wide range of rock and metal sub-genres as a chorus and delay effects-equipped three-channel amplifier and cabinet plug-in by working with the cutting-edge Czech software applications, software effects, and hardware processors developer’s design team to turn his vision into reality — as of December 10…
As a longtime user of various amp sims and cab impulses, experienced mastering/mixing engineer, musician, and programmer Martin Linda started making inroads into programming his dream machine as a guitar amp plug-in perfectly suited to working with a wide range of rock and metal sub-genres many moons ago, but it was only by closely collaborating with software applications, software effects, and hardware processors developer Audified that he was finally able to realize that dream as a plug-in par excellence.
Enter Linda RockStack — not to be confused with retired American singer Linda Ronstadt, who performed and recorded in diverse genres including rock, country, light opera, and Latin! Linda RockStack is a three-channel amplifier plug-in with an independently-switchable — MOD (multi-stage chorus) and DELAY — effects section and a continuously-blend-able cabinet IMPULSE section. It is also equipped with extensive tone-shaping options, such as PRE and POST (LO, MID, and HI) gain EQ alongside additional TIGHT, FAT, and BODY contours, so its tonal possibilities are almost endless.
Engaging that multi-stage chorus and delay effects processing independently all adds up to a unique-sounding and unbelievably-versatile virtual amp that provides its user with control over a vast tonal palette with mind-blowing flexibility — fresh from the excellent ear and musical mind of Linda Audio’s Martin Linda, complete with mix-ready guitar tones.
Tuned by an experienced producer’s ear rather than simply taking an already existing design and recreating it in the software domain, Linda RockStack provides its users with the tools to create their own mix-ready rock and metal sounds rather than simply copying what has gone before. Better said by Martin Linda himself: “There is no need to simulate a brand when you can create your dream guitar tone instead!”
Linda RockStack can be directly downloaded as an AAX, AU, and VST3 64-bit native plug-in for macOS (10.11 – 10.15) and an AAX (64-bit) and VST3 (32-bit and 64-bit) native plug-in for Windows (7 – 10) — alongside demo versions — from Audified here: https://services.audified.com/download (Note that Linda RockStack is a serial number-protected plug-in, so no iLok is required.)
