World-class Dual Rec Tone, in a Plug-in

Few guitar amps become classics by being a key ingredient of countless hit recordings and an essential component in the signature sound of legendary guitarists. Mesa Boogie's Dual Rectifier made the grade. Unlike other storied amp circuits, the Dual Rec is not only famous for a single sound, but an entire tone arsenal, from chimey cleans to crispy crunch to face-melting high-gain. If you're a guitarist who lives in your DAW (don't we all?), Brainworx has nailed the essence of this amp legend in a plug-in: the bx_megadual.

Brainworx bx_megadual Plug-in at a Glance:
  • The sonic soul of a legendary guitar amp
  • Does the heavy lifting for you
The sonic soul of a legendary guitar amp

The sonic soul of a legendary guitar amp - the Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier - lives inside Brainworx bx_megadual, but so do all the features responsible for its massive sonic palette. Sporting three separate channels, eight tone modes, the ability to mimic reduced voltage to the output transformer (the Dual Rec's vaunted Variac circuit) and more, the bx_megadual is perhaps the most versatile guitar amp plug-in emulation we've heard.

Does the heavy lifting for you

Ask any engineer or guitarist at Sweetwater - getting a great tone with a real amp in the studio is a lot of work. It's an involved process, from setting up the right mics, preamps, and outboard gear; and for the best results, it demands experience - and the patience to experiment. The Brainworx bx_megadual plug-in does the heavy lifting for you. It includes 64 Impulse Responses (IRs), which include a broad selection of guitar cabs and high-end microphones, produced using a rare large-format Neve console and superb outboard EQ from Millennia, SPL, and elysia. The resulting sounds - well, you simply selected your favorites from a menu inside the plug-in.

Brainworx bx_megadual Plug-in Features:
  • Faithful reproduction of a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier guitar amp
  • Delivers warm vintage Boogie tones and modern Rectifier metal mayhem
