Audio Assault Blacksun
The Audio Assault Blacksun will no doubt look familiar to many guitarists, as it bears close resemblance to a well-known UK-designed twin-channel amp head. The mode control allows you to voice the amp from a British to a more American style eq. This dual-channel amp is capable of delivering clean and high-gain guitar tones, so it would be a nice addition to any DAW plug-in collection.
Controls and Stompboxes
You have a 3-band EQ, a presence control, and a depth knob, plus master volume and input gain controls.The company has included three free stompbox sims to get you started, including a noise gate, a booster pedal, and the green Screamer drive pedal.
There is also a really handy FX section included where you will find some useful rack effects. These include reverb, delay, chorus, as well as a 9-band graphic EQ for sculpting your overall tone.
Last but not least, Blacksun features a dual cabinet loader. You can load your own IRs or use the set of free impulse responses provided by Seacow Cabs. To fine-tune the cabs, you get controls for panning, filters, and volume.
Formats and Pricing
The Blacksun plug-in is available for 64-bit digital DAWs on Windows, macOS, and Linux, and comes in VST2, VST3, AU, and AAX plug-in formats.
