Fuse Audio Labs presents us with a new software virtual effect pedal package with four new effects packaged as the VBP bundle. One distortion pedal is provided as freeware for those on a tight budget.
Fuse Audio Lab’s VBP bundle includes five new emulations of well-known stomp boxes in a virtual format. Included in the package is Big-Sur, a distortion effect with a hint of fuzz. This effect is absolutely free and could be useful for many situations and not just guitar. After the demo period has ended, you can continue to use this emulation without any restrictions.
El-Germano is a tribute to classic drive-based germanium transistors from the 1960s. This gives you the typical vintage sound in your DAW. Octafish is, of course, an octave effect. It brings you more depth, generating a sub-octave copy of your audio signal. Gate-320 is an easy-to-use noise gate. The special feature here is a neat little hold function.
The last effect in the collection is the Chorus-65. Fuse Audio says it’s got a vintage character in the vein of analogue bucket brigade sound. All effects have been enhanced with some added useful functions, like dry/wet and oversampling. This looks like a nice little package with helpful, high-quality effects. Having Big Sur as a freebie will certainly widen its appeal. You can apply these effects to more than just guitars, too.
Fuse Audio Labs VBP bundle is available in the manufacturer’s web shop at a price of 16.75 Euros . The plug-ins run on Mac OSX 10.9 or higher and Windows 7 or higher as VST, VST3, AAX and AU in 32 or 64 bit. You can also download a limited demo version from the developer’s website, just follow the link below. I have popped some audio demos in below so you can hear some examples of each effect in action.
