Soft clipping alone is not sufficient to emulate the elusive creamy character of a legendary vintage overdrive pedal.
In order to explore the secret ingredients of legendary sound and feel, every subtlety throughout the entire signal path should be meticulously analyzed and documented. Only this ensures authentic recreation of the exact sound and feel of the legend in the digital domain. TS' Secret is the result of this keen but painful philosophy.
The Heeb CrunchDude 0.1 is a very simple, yet effective guitar amplifier emulation VST plugin.
As the name implies, its strength lies not only in clean or over-the-top lead sounds, but especially in the excellent crunch sounds it can produce (certainly a weak point in many similar devices, virtual or otherwise). Its use is not limited to the electric guitar however. It can also be extremely useful in processing e.g. bass guitar, synthesizers, etc.
AmpliTube® UNO contains one amp and one distortion pedal effect. The distortion effect is modeled after an analog solid-state overdrive stomp box. This is a warm, rich and versatile overdrive pedal that can saturate itself and overdrive the amp as well. The Crunch Model is the same one offered in the full version of AmpliTube®. This model features an EQ stage with Lo, Mid and Hi tone control circuitry that recreates the authentic response of the modeled amp. It also features an input gain control and an overall output level control.

Rough Rider is a modern compressor with a bit of vintage style bite and a uniquely warm sound. Perfect for adding compression effects to your drum buss, it also sounds great with synth bass, clean guitar, and backing vocals.
Definitely not an all-purpose compressor, Rough Rider is at its best when used to add pump to rhythmic tracks. Of course, you can use it however you'd like. The Compressor Police aren't gonna come to your house and give you a citation. Slap it on a track and crank some knobs.
