S-Gear v1.0.3 is now available from the Download page.

This next update deals with two issues:

  • Standalone App being incompatible with some ASIO drivers, and
  • S-Gear plug-in crashes Reaper 3.7.x when looping multiple active S-Gear tracks.

Note: if you are updating from v1.0.2 please do not forget to update any copies of the VST DLL.

"...even if you already have several amp sims, they [Scuffham's amps] provide an excellent complement because they're not trying to sound like some specific amp."

"...streamlined simplicity and quality over quantity."

So, we are a few days behind our schedule, but everything is looking good and sounding great. We hope to get the S-Gear release live within the next ten days. Over the next few days we will be adding information to the website support pages to help you get up and running. Please check back soon!

We are delighted to include a selection of speaker impulses from the excellent Redwirez collection, including 1x12", 2x12", 4x10" and 4x12" cabs, ribbon and dynamic mic options and a range of mic placements. Also based on Redwirez research, and a unique feature of Pro Convolver, the 'Z' control allows you to dial in the effect of speaker impedance driven by a traditional tube power amp stage. Adding extra thump and sparkle, and a more scooped mid-range tone, the 'Z' control adds another dimension to the speaker cabinet models.
