New Guitar Plugin Turns Hacks into Shredders

YouTube Preview Image

macProVideo.com, an Online Education Site, today introduced a new guitar plugin, Phoenix Pro, that is ‘guaranteed to turn novice guitar players into rockstars’.

In partnership with Phoenix Digital Audio Teknologies of Germany, macProVideo.com’s team of in-house programers have created a revolutionary audio processor that can physically model the sound of top guitar pros like Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, or BB King and apply them to any guitar recording, no matter the skill level of the original player.

Phoenix Pro is due for release Spring 2013 (more info in the video above) at around the $129 mark or higher (or perhaps lower).

Multi Eventide stompbox demo jam freakout!

via SourceDistributionTV:

The results of an improvised mess-about tweaking all our in-house Eventide Stompboxes, sometimes all at once. The chain is Suhr Guitar into Eventide ModFactor fed into TimeFactor, then into Pitchfactor, then into a Jet City 50 Watt 2 x 12 Combo amp. Guitar is provided by Source’s resident shredder Ian Iredale, knob twiddling by Alex. You can hopefully get an idea for the sheer range of ideas, sounds and general all round genius these particular pedals provide.

Eventide stompboxes are as much studio effects as they are guitar effects (all are stereo, with selectable Line/Guitar input/output volumes), all sound completely fabulous and are easy to use, but still super super deep.

Mic setup is Shure SM57 on the cone going into a UA 610, RØDE NTG1000 on the rear of the cab, RØDE NTG2 to pick up our voices, all fed into a PreSonus FireStudio Mobile for conversion.

Introducing: 22 Caliber Power Amp from Electro-Harmonix

via EHX:

www.ehx.com Visit EHX.com for user videos, our blog, community fourms, and lots more! For more 22 Caliber product info, see www.ehx.com Thanks to Engineering for taking the time to chat with us! The 22 Caliber is a versatile 22-watt guitar head that fits in the palm of your hand. Just plug it into any 4-, 8- or 16-ohm speaker, and you’ll get a big, sweet musical sound. Crank the 22 Caliber’s volume, and it’ll go into overdrive — like a vintage amp with a single volume control. Flip on the Bright switch to add some bite and definition. It’s not just a guitar head; it’s a shrunken head, with all good voodoo.
