Warm, Fat and Chunky to Fierce Biting Shred
Guitar stomp boxes are great for their durability and simplicity. Dial-in your settings, stomp on the switch and add new dimensions to your rig’s signature sound. The RAT 2 from ProCo Sound is the epitome of this idea- three knobs and a switch are all that stand between you and the heady distortion that helped shape iconic sounds of some of the greatest bands around the world.
Brainworx has now introduced the bx_blackdist2, a plugin version of the RAT 2, modeled to an exacting degree of guitar tone goodness. Simply dial in the ‘Distortion’, filter to shape between sounds ranging from warm to crunchy to screaming, and adjust volume to taste. It’s such a straightforward approach to customizing your pedal chain, no wonder the RAT 2 has become the beloved choice of guitarists and pedal collectors worldwide. The bx_blackdist2 brings the tonal charisma and flexibility of the original right into your DAW.
