In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring Grind Machine II From Audio Assault which is available on a pay what you want basis until 13th July. That is tomorrow if you’re reading this on Friday so if you want this amp you’ll have to hurry.
What Is Grind Machine II?
Grind Machine II is an amp sim for people who like music which goes “chug-chug-chug” - and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you like modern, high gain tones then you should check this out as it does them extremely well.
Grind Machine II Features
The included Gate has a default threshold of -150dbfs, but can reach as high as 0dbfs to suit all your creative gating needs.
The PRE switch bypasses the preamp section, allowing use of Grind Machine II’s Cab section. This allows you to use Grind Machine as an IR loader, allowing you to take advantage of the proprietary Impact Engine with any amp sim you wish to use!
The TIGHT switch turns on a booster circuit, tightening the low end and smoothing the high gain.
Grind Machine II provides a wide variety of high gain amp flavours
90210 emulates the legendary American high gain of choice.
Acutronix is an original designed clean preamp tone which compresses naturally at higher gain settings while still retaining a clean tone.
Ak-45 is an original design high gain preamp tone that can drive you down the Rocky Mountain Way straight to the Highway To Hell!
Bassmaster is based on a legendary bass amp adopted by guitarists in the 60’s. This same amp inspired Jim Marshall’s JTM45 amp.
BRT 880 is based on an amp that can be considered nothing short of Rock Royalty.
Butterton is an original design high gain preamp that delivers a buttery midrange that’s perfect for filling out a mix!
Demoniac emulates the great german high octane amp.
Lil Monster is the byproduct of an alchemist and a mad scientist competing in a battle to the death.
Mod 37 is based on rock royalty with the coveted #34 mod
PVGL Fire is an inspired hybrid of German and American high gain legends!
Raptor is based on the single tube amp that reformed our expectations of what rock guitar should be!
The Knife is an original design high gain preamp with a tone that can cut like a knife…or a machete!
The Sonic is inspired by a popular German amplifier known for its high headroom that keeps the mud away!
Triceratop is based on the triple pronged monster from the same line as the Raptor.
UV35 is based on another German legend popular for its face melting tones!
Grind Machine II comes loaded with 15 custom cabinet IR’s in its expandable IR section.
Choose between cabs freely
Add your own cabs to the IR folder
Cabs loaded into Grind Machine II can benefit from the proprietary Impact control, which emulates the microdynamic response of a speaker!
“Impact” controls the amount of speaker movement being emulated. Zero provides no movement modeling, while 100% emulates the dynamic movement of an extremely loud speaker.
Cab switch bypasses the cab loader and Impact section completely, allowing you to use any IR loader you wish with Grind Machine II’s preamps.
