DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) plugin and audio DSP (Digital Signal Processing) developer Fuse Audio Labs is proud to launch the VPB-Bundle — bringing 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 bolstered by a nice surprise.
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 opamp beast.
Fuse Audio Labs VPB-Bundle brings four more amazing individual stompboxes optimized for DAW use to the production table:
El-Germano is an homage to a popular icon of classic 60s style drive based on Germanium transistors. This pedal creates wonderful vintage overdrive sounds and surprises with interesting options with some tweaking of its bias and voltage controls. Enjoy the ride in between subtle rasp, dirty blues and old school rock… and tweak it with additional level and oversampling options.
Octafish adds a naturally sounding sub-octave to your signal synthesized by a precise M51134 IC emulation. The result can be anything from subtle extension of your low end to wall-shaking earthquake simulations. Octafish expands your sound massively, no matter if you really want to feel the bass or get your audience’s guts rumbling. For more flexibility, the plugin adds a useful octave solo switch.
Gate-230 is an easy-to-use optical noise gate with a clever hold function. While the original pedal just features a threshold control, the plugin adds a range knob for setting the maximum amount of reduction plus an LED to indicate when the gate is closed. Gate-230 cleans that unwanted sonic junk easily, and it also takes you a long way when being creative.
Chorus-65 is a subtle but very musical sounding stereo chorus based on a vintage analog bucket brigade chipset. Its modulation sounds very lush and adds a great shimmer to any clean channel, making chords appear deeper and richer. While the plugin is a real-deal emulation of the original pedal, it also provides additional level control for easy gain staging inside the DAW.
Well known and adored for its grungy wall-of-sound distortion, Big-Sur is a perfect pick for powerful rhythm playing and heavy lead sounds. Its wide spectrum distortion with a good portion of fuzz and mid-range authority will literally cut through any sonic clutter. By adding an additional mix control and optional oversampling, Big-Sur adds great flexibility to the famous op-amp beast.
All five plugins included in the VPB-Bundle support zero-latency operation for a perfect live and tracking experience.
Fuse Audio Labs was founded in 2017 by Reimund Dratwa. Prior to joining Black Rooster Audio in late 2016, he worked for Brainworx for many years, during which time he was responsible for creating analog modeling titles for brands such as ACME Audio, Black Box Analog Design, elysia, Millennia, Vertigo, and several others available through Plugin Alliance and the UAD-2 platform. The company was initially intended as an engineering entity to develop DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) plugins and audio DSP (Digital Signal Processing) applications for various partners, but soon served as a channel for its own exciting product ideas.
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. The complete VPB-Bundle — including the additional four stomp boxes — is priced at €19.00 EUR, available directly from Fuse Audio Labs’ dedicated product site.
