This is a five part video series where I demonstrate all the presets that comes with Scuffham S-Gear 2, so if you want a thorough overview of this VST plugin this might be it. As there are five different amps with in S-Gear 2 I have splitt this into five different videos, that will be release over a five week period (mainly because I don’t wanna clutter up my channels video feed!).
As a general overview of S-Gear 2: it’s a software that can be run as standalone or as a plugin in your DAW (digital audio workstation). S-Gear comes with five different amps, speaker cabinetts, tuner and effects (you can also use 3rd part cabs/IR’s). Feel free to have a look at my review video for more information about S-Gear 2 (link provided below). If you want to try it out, there’s a 10 day full featured trial available.
In this video the focus is on the amp named The Wayfarer. None of the amps in S-Gear 2 are based on nay specific amp but The Wayfarer should be Mesa Boogie like, maybe like a MKIV and/or a high gain Fender amp. “Classic american” is what the manual has to say about it. It features 3 channels, many tone shaping switches, a graphic EQ that is placed between the preamp and the power amp. The three channels are as follows…
Lead I – Classic hot-rodded Fender, with rich overdrive sounds.
Lead II – can do very high gain, higher intensity than Lead I with a slightly more aggressive voicing.
Lead Drive: adjust the gain with additional gain stages, careful balancing is key for tight overdrive sounds.
Not sure if this is of interest but a note on the guitars used for these videos. The presets are not ordered by the amps so I just picked a guitar and recorded 10 presets, then I switched to another guitar and played another 10 presets and so on. So what guitar is used for which preset is kinda random! The way I recorded them is just hooking them up directly to my soundcard (Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 2nd Gen) and then recorded some noodling in Reaper. Nothing added before or after, it is just as they come.
