VST Alarm offers the Blaque ($19 value) dark electric guitar virtual instrument by New Nation as a free download for a limited time.
Blaque dark electric guitar has been designed to give players an easy way into some classic and some experimental guitar sounds. Characterized by dark and grimy lo-fi textures, this plugin is useful for any producer wanting to turn their guitar into something a little sludgier.
These guitar sounds are ready to play in an array of genres: whether it’s classic guitar sounds like punk, grunge, and rock or adding something a little different sounding to genres like contemporary jazz and trap.
There’s a lot to play with in Blaque, and it’s a bargain whilst it’s free. This offer is available for a limited time only. The offer will expire on November 28th, when it will return to its regular value of $19.00.
New Nation built this VST by sampling real electric guitar players and playing through countless guitar amps and effects. The 30 available presets are varied, ranging from classic tones to experimental patches.
You can preview how the instrument sounds in the demo video below.
The sampled sounds are played by four sampler engines. Thanks to this feature, users are able to blend four different presets to create one layered sound. Producers who prefer not to customize the presets will enjoy this feature, as it is a guaranteed way to engineer a unique sound.
The available effects are simple but offer a decent degree of control and sculpting capabilities. You get a delay, a filter, and a reverb, all quite useful and with simple controls.
The ‘artifacts’ effects are an interesting addition, great for increasing or removing digital distortion and other strange blips in the high frequencies.
Overall, for beginner players and producers, Blaque is a great way to get a source of guitar sounds and some playful effects. This plugin might not be a game changer in the market, but there is no doubt that it is very useful.
Download it for free for a limited time. The offer expires on November 28th, when it will return to its regular value of $19.00.
