Mercuriall Audio Metal Area MT-A
The Boss MT-2 is a bit of a modern classic, but also pretty controversial. Many players buy them but they aren’t known for sounding great. So by emulating them as a plug-in, Mercuriall Audio has taken on an interesting distortion circuit. This new MT-A plugin is available for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats. Did we mention that they are giving it away for free?
It also has controls for Level, Dist, High, Low, Middle, MidFreq, Input Gain, Mono/Stereo, Quality switch and an On/Off knob.
Boss Metal Zone MT 2
I’ve played the original Boss pedal these are based on and it has a certain tone and sound that’s an acquired taste. As with any effects pedal, it is all about how you use it. So this new plug-in emulation could be really useful for certain applications in your DAW.
I’d certainly download it and I am pretty sure that I could find a use for it somewhere in my setup. Make sure that you check out the official demo video below and follow the link for your free copy of Mercuriall Audio Metal Area MT-A.
