S-Gear is a collection of guitar amps, speaker cabinets and effects implemented in software for use with your computer, Windows PC or MAC. The software comes as a Standalone Application and as plug-ins for use with the most popular DAW (digital audio workstation) recording software.
The really special thing about S-Gear is the amazing high quality of guitar amp tones achieved simply by plugging your guitar into a computer via an audio interface. S-Gear gives you a professional guitar sound without the expense and hassle. We are talking about the sound of a high quality tube amp, turned up loud, and mic'd up professionally in a suitable acoustic space. S-Gear's boutique designed amps, coupled with accurate convolution based speaker cabinet emulation, provide a massive range of guitar tones.
S-Gear features a flexible effects rack and four different rack processing units. Drag & drop rack units to change the processing order in your rack.
Detailed modelling of analogue electronics is the key ingredient in the DelayThing and ModThing processors, providing versatile analogue style delay and modulation effects. RoomThing is a studio quality reverb processor adding depth and space to your guitar sounds.
If you've never tried S-Gear you are missing out on a great experience. All the amps and effects are carefully designed by Mike Scuffham (former product designer for Marshall Amplification, and veteran of hardware electronic product design). You may come across products boasting high numbers of amps and effects, but the Scuffham approach is to give you only the best. We want you to achieve the best possible sounds with the minimum of hassle. Read more about our approach to modelling classic guitar amp electronic circuits.
We are sooo tired of people complaining about the DSP cards on every UAD thread. No one is forcing anyone to buy their plug in's. If you don't like it, don't buy it. I have a Duo and Quad and I am just fine. Just freeze the tracks and you have the power you need.
I'm sad that you're dropping s gear for this...
Good point about input impedance. UA is doing it electronically right? I'm pretty sure the avid eleven rack also had a variable impedance on the instrument input too as well. I wonder if the interface impedance was taken into account with aero's design.
I have played through most of the top modeling software available right now and S Gear is hands down my favorite. It has a simple interface compared to many others that you can tweak forever in but don't sound any better. It feels like an amp, It acts like an amp when responding to guitar volume....
S-Gear - They just capture the "air" for lack of a better word that others cannot - without overdoing it. The big deal is what is your "tone"? S Gear IMHO is able to enhance the players who need an organic, lower gain tone and thus need to hear what guitar they are playing. I can dial in a great...
