Ugritone releases Ampenstein: Dual Rektifier

Over this last weekend, Ugritone have release their second amp sim for their Ampenstein plugin: Dual Rektifier!

Ampenstein's plugin GUI with the Dual Rektifier

This is the second amp Ugritone have released, with the DAIM 100 being the first they released a while back. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that this flew by without me noticing that Ugritone had successfully built and shipped these sims built using NAM--they've contributed to the open-source code (thanks!) and get kudos for having their eyes on the project from very early on.

They've also teamed up with Vadim Taranov of VTarAmps, who helped with some of the DSP algorithm work in the final product. Vadim's also been around the NAM community since the early days of its "second wind" resurgence, and it's cool to see these folks work together to put these together and find NAM helpful.

I got a chance to try out Ampenstein, and the new Dual Rektifier has an instantly recognizable tone. I personally associate it with pop-punk, and it instantly got me writing new riffs and thinking about how I wish I was in a pop punk band! It's a real treat to have something that inspires you to play, and this did that for me.

Cheers and enjoy!
