|Warp VST - the guitar amp plug-in is going to be available during the first quarter 2002. Based on Hughes & Kettner's DSM technology, Warp VST is a plug-in that puts at players' fingertips the authentic response and pure tube tone of three classic amp models and three speaker cabinets. The plug delivers true real-time performance. When used with an ASIO I/O solution, latency is negligible, even irrelevant in musical terms.
Warp VST boasts that legendary Jazz Chorus clean sound, the genre-defining dynamics of 60s-vintage Plexi tops, and the modern hi-gain thump and chunk typical of the Rectifier era. It also offers a choice of three speaker cabinets: Combo (12" loudspeaker, open back cab); British (4 x 12" cab loaded with 80s-era speakers), and Greenback (4 x 12" speakers that pack the trademark steel-fist-in-a-silk-glove punch of Greenbacks). Each amp can be mixed and matched with every cabinet. Warp VST, in combination with Steinberg Nuendo Audio Link I/O, can turn the PC into a bona fide guitar rig with remarkably low latency.
Warp VST provides every producer with the advantage of total control over the guitar sound even if the guitarist is airborne and en route back to nowhere. VST Recording Systems and Cubase VST and Nuendo are able to deliver a full-blown, processed guitar sound in real time to the guitarist for tracking purposes, while the untreated guitar signal is kept in the background.
