AMZ Rat VST plugin

The blue box in the image above is a beta version of a VST plugin that I developed, which is a model of the signal path of the Proco Rat distortion pedal.

There is no skin on the plugin yet, so it’s ugly but it works. The free LeCab plugin is a guitar cabinet simulator and I have it on the default setting. A free Kjaerhus chorus plugin is also used to give the guitar signal some stereo spread.

If you want to hear how it sounds, download the audio file from Rapidshare (free download).

The original clean guitar audio is from an amp sim shootout that is being conducted on the Reaper forum, and I suggest that you check out that thread for samples of several other guitar amp simulators.

*This VST plugin is not affiliated in any way with Pro Co Sound, the developer of the original Rat guitar pedal.

So are you distributing this plugin? I’m very intrigued…

I will be giving the plugin away for free on my site if I ever get it finished. The skin is now complete but the updated version compiles with an error. I need to work the bugs out.

I like the sound of it, and as a musician a lot of times I get ideas for music from the tone itself. Can’t wait till its ready.

Hey, are you still working on this? It sounds really exciting. If you need a beta tester, let me know!

Hope to hear about this thing soon, I really really like and love the Rat, too. Pretty awesome pedal, the secret weapon is this pedal, not a tubescreamer! 🙂

Any advice on where to get started with programming effects and audio related projects. I have programming experience yet have not found much information on the subject of audio programming. I need to do more research admittedly, but I thought I would ask since you appear to have some experience in the area. Any websites, forums, or books you would recommend?
