IK Multimedia has announced the Dimebag Darrell CFH Collection for AmpliTube. The company has previously modelled many famous players’ guitar rigs and hopefully this new one will do justice to the late Pantera guitarist.
Cowboys From Hell
This new set of amps and effects models the legendary metal guitarist’s entire rig from Pantera’s Cowboys From Hell. This classic album introduced the band to a massive audience worldwide. Much of its appeal was in Dimebag’s guitar tone.
Dimebag’s guitar tech Grady Champion has helped IK Multimedia model the late guitarist’s rig from that era. It includes nine new hardware models, including software emulations of two amps, two cabinets and five effects pedals. Available both as a standalone desktop app and DAW plug-in, the CFH Collection features IK’s Dynamic Interaction Modelling, their proprietary modelling algorithm.
The bundle itself includes the following amp models:
- Darrell From Hell 100 – Based on Dimebag’s highly coveted Randall RG 100ES solid-state, 120-watt amplifier. This has a matching Darrell From Hell 412 amp cabinet based on his Randall 412JB.
- Jazz Amp 120CFH – modelled after the 1986 Roland JC-120 DD used on the track Cemetery Gates. Again, you get a matching cabinet, this time with a JP Jazz CFH, modelled after the Roland JC-120 combo’s 2×12-inch speakers.
On the effects side, the bundle includes a 6-Band EQ, Pre EQ 3 (a three-band parametric EQ) based on the Furman PQ-3, a Flanger Doubler modelled on an MXR model of the same name, a Dime Wah simulating his Dunlop GCB95 and the Dime Noise Gate based on a Rocktron Hush.
This new plug-in suite will be available in November 2018 but is available for pre-order now. Early preorder buyers will save EUR/USD 20 on the whole deal, so it may be worth taking a punt on if this is your thing.
RRP – USD/EUR 99 with an introductory price of USD/EUR 79 during pre-orders
