Our distortion and amp simulation plug-in, Blue Cat’s Destructor, already includes a handful of factory presets that mimic the tone of famous guitarists (check out the “Guitar Legends” presets category!), but we wanted to take it a step further…

Did he succeed? Check out the videos below! We must say we have been pretty impressed… Continue reading

Blue Cat’s Late Replies offers a flexible approach to manage the delay time across its multi-tap section and feedback loops.
In this video Eli Krantzberg explains the base delay settings, and tells you how to use (or not to use) the grid and random functions to create in or out-of-sync delays. You will also learn how to link the taps and feedback loops together to quickly edit them all at once.
