thank you, this is very nice, loving the sound of it on a clean amp. excellent job
 
already own all the mercuriall stuff so can't take advantage of the deals, but they are well worth it at full price, so good bargains. thanks again and looking forward to what you bring out in the future
 
 
 
 
just been listening to some of your tunes and bits and pieces, 'bear traps and monkey shoulders - caught in a bear trap' lol,  that's exactly what i did when that dude had a little scream near the beginning, wasn't expecting that with the lack of vocals in most stuff, he has a nice set of lungs that's for sure, top tune to boot, love it. like the guitar tones for the most part, well done. 'when i was a child' excellent, had a feeling scanning through the tittles that might have been a little something wish 'gentle touch' would have been more, and 2012 new year solo you got a lot of good bits and pieces there that want your attention, (3/4 171212 is just playing now, awesome) i don't know what it is but i hear sabbath in a lot of various parts, and obviously not in others, any influence there?
 
the last 2 songs on the band page had parts that really screamed out for vocals, would have been so good. shame the band is on hiatus
 
really well done overall barmaleus, well played, well done all round (lol, 93bpm . . . 3 thumbs up)
 
very enjoyable listen

I tried using this in SONAR Platinum with Windows 10 (all 64 bit) - after playing through it for 20 - 30 seconds, all audio just cuts out. SONAR doesn't hang,and it *thinks* it's still playing, but I had to reboot to getsound back.
 
I did this 3 times, and then just uninstalled. Life's too short ;-)

Thanks Grim - I can't imagine why SONAR doesn't like it. I use the tube screamer, and U530, and they work fine.

Re: Tube Amp Ultra 530 2017/06/14 09:40:05 (permalink)
I'm gonna try it again today - I was just thinking, (as you do) that maybe I had put it *behind" the amp and speaker emulators, rather than before...
(I do this sometimes, and then realise - DOH! - when it sounds like crap) ;-)

Re: Tube Amp Ultra 530 2017/06/14 11:45:44 (permalink)
OK - I was just being a dork!
I tried it again, and inserted the plugin *before* my amp sim (S-Gear), and it works fine.
It sounds nice - not "overblown" at all ;-)
 
NOTE: It certainly seemed unhappy running after the speaker emulator
(S-Gear -> Torpedo WOS 4)
Maybe the level was too high, or maybe it was annoyed because I had it set for mono (the guitar part is mono until it comes out of S-Gear, and then it is stereo) but it's working fine now ;-)

@The Grim
Thank you for the kind words about the plugin and my music! =) It's always inspiring to receive comments from the people you don't know. Re. influences... Very hard to say, as I listen to various music and bands. But Black Sabbath is actually not on my top list =)
 
@jbraner
I'll send you a PM with updated version. Hopefully it fixes the issue (would be cool if you check it out and let me know if the issue is solved).

Grim - I think I'm the one who was confusing you ;-)
I do this sometimes when I'm tired. (You will know all this) When you add a plugin to the SONAR FX bin, it goes at the bottom by default. The FX get processed from the top down, so you need to put something like this plugin at the "top" of the FX bin, so that the raw guitar part gets processed through
greed smasher -> amp sim -> speaker sim
 
The little "issue" I found only comes about when the input level is too high (ie when you put the plugin *after* the amp sim and speaker sim) AND you then set the input gain too high. Everything is fine when you use the plugin "normally" ;-)
