This week on Guitar Gear Gems we check out the new Audiosingularity Neurontube software, which offers two classic guitar amps, cabs and effects for your DAW. Best of all though, it is completely free of charge. Plus, Thomas McRocklin has just launched his own plugin company, PolyChrome DSP and so we take a peek at that. Finally, we have a quick peek at the new Dunlop Authentic Hendrix ‘68 Shrine mini pedals.

PolyChrome DSP

PolyChrome DSP is the new plugin company launched by Thomas McRocklin and it features practically everything you need to get a tone like Mr McRocklin. These days he has a very successful YouTube channel, though you may remember him as the kid that used to hang out with Steve Vai.

He famously appeared as a young Vai in The Audience is Listening video during the Passion and Warfare period.

Introductory Price

The plugin comes with nearly 400 presets and offers built-in effects to complete your guitar tones. It includes four basic amp types labelled clean, acoustic, edge and gain voicings. Plus it has  15 speaker chains, three reverb algorithms and four drive pedals to help you craft your tones.

Super Low Latency

The McRocklin Suite runs at a very low latency of just 0.045ms. That’s zero point zero milliseconds, which is practically negligible and could make for an amazingly reactive playing experience.

PolyChrome DSP is available to download now for the introductory price of $99 down from the regular price of $149.

Formats VST, AU, CLAP or Standalone. Windows or MacOS versions are available on launch.

New Art

The set of four includes a Fuzz Face, Uni-Vibe chorus/vibrato, Octavio fuzz and a Band of Gypsys Fuzz. Each comes with new artwork inspired by John Van Hamserveld.

Essentially, they are just the same pedals as before. Though, there have been a few versions of artwork over the years, including the one below* from the last limited edition run.
