Brainworx bx_rockrack PRO

Funk, Jazz and Metal in 1 Amp Plugin


bx_rockrack PRO. A Guitar Amp Sim Plugin with Unparalleled TONE

The Brainworx team, renowned for their 1:1 emulations of coveted, hi-end audio gear, have taken a new approach to guitar amp plugins. Most amp sims out there attempt to simulate 112 amps and 256 microphones, but the tone of the originals just can’t be found in any of those models, even after hours of frustrating knob tweaking. Much of the time their distortion sounds brittle and not organic. Digital at its worst…

Brainworx fixed that with the rockrack PRO
BX gives you just a few perfectly modeled tube amps captured with COMPLETE recording chains from studios featuring great sounding amp rooms and stellar gear. Each amp was painstakingly recorded by professional audio engineers who make their living by capturing tone. This level of effort during the recording process is simply revolutionary for an amp sim plugin. bx_rockrack Pro also removes the headache and time soak of recording or re-amping guitars. Simply select your favorite speaker and recording chain, choose your amp, tweak the gain and EQ settings, and let the riffs fly - recorded or live.
World-class guitar sounds, recallable and reliable. If you have ever tried to record the same identical amp in the same studio twice and ended up frustrated because the results just were NOT the same, then you understand what Brainworx has accomplished with bx_rockrack Pro.

PRO Version:

The new rockrack PRO version has 7 amps – including 2 brand new JAZZ amps, and a redesigned noise gate engineered with guitar in mind.
