S-Gear 2 by Scuffham – All the presets (Part 4: The Jackal)

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 Jackal – which should be based on a Soldano SLO 100. It’s capable of high gain sounds but also sounds great clean. It’s practically a modern high gain design that can cover any style from clean country twang to high gain rock and metal.

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.

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.

In this video the focus is on the amp named The Duke, based on amps like Dumble ODS and Fender Super Reverb. It’s a medium gain amp, very dynamic and touch sensitive. It is also the amp that has the most presets included; 43 of them.

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.

In this video the focus is on the amp named Custom ’57. It’s the latest addition to S-Gear 2 and is very much like a Fender Tweed Deluxe from the late 50’s. Simple controls – volume, bright, bass and level. You have some additional option in the power amp section (presence, hi-cut and sag) to which the Custom ’57 is very sensitive. This is also the amp within S-Gear with the fewest presets available, so the other videos will be longer!

Riot Drums by Ugritone (Review – Demo – Showcase)

Video by Have Guitar!

Riot Drums from Ugritone is a 64-bit VST/VST3/AU/AXX plugin, inspired by the classic 90’s hard core albums. This drum plugin has many great features like adjustable mics (close, room close/far, overheads…), great routing possibilities and freely adjustable midinotes for the drums.

In this video we’ll go through this drum plugin; looking at the features but of course giving some sound examples as well, standalone as well as “in the mix”. (By the way, the sound of the guitars in the song featured in the video comes from Kemper profiles from ReampZone, bass was recorded with a profile from Live Ready Sounds Traced Bass for Kemper.)

Hope you liked the video, if you wanna support my channel – hit subscribe now! Thank You! to all you who already subscribes…

Ignite Amps – Emissary – Free guitar amp VST by Have Guitar

Ignite Amps – Emissary – Free guitar amp VST by Have Guitar

Taking a stint look at the Ignite Amps Emissary – a free amp simulator that sounds very good according to me. The Emissary is free to download and you just need a digital audio workstation (DAW) to use it, if you haven’t got that Reaper is a good alternative to start with. What is it? It is a VST-plugin that simulates a guitar amplifier – it has one clean and one gain channel and I’d say we’re sniffin around metal territory here… but with some tweaking it surely can be used for other genres as well.

So, this is more of a “let’s see what it can do” video and it’s the first one of it’s kind (for me!) so hopefully I will develop the format as we go along. Feel free to comment about that (yes, just a I said in the video!).

Besides the Emissary I have used a bunch of other plugins to get this to sound (hopefully) better; Kjaerhus Classic compressor and delay, Ignite Amps TSB-1 (Tyrant Screamer, like a Tube Screamer in VST format) and Nadir (cab/IR loader) and Variety of Sounds BootEQMkII. Best of all? They are all good plugins and free to download and use as well!

There you have it, my first dent with some free software for recording guitar – I do hope you’ll like it. Please do subscribe to Have Guitar to gimme some support, that will be appriciated! To all of you who allready do: Thanks!!!
