Music producer and software developer Steve Ack has launched a new plugin for guitar distortion pedals, ParametricOD. This plugin, which is available for free for both Windows and Mac users, is based on the Neural Amp Modeler (NAM). It is the first publicly available parametric Neural Amp Model.
The ParametricOD plugin utilizes the parametric modeling capabilities of NAM to provide an accurate model of Steve Ack’s overdrive pedal. The unique aspect of this model is that it maintains its accuracy across the full range of the pedal’s knobs and switches, providing users with an authentic and comprehensive emulation of the original hardware.
Parametric modeling is a technique used in digital signal processing to create a detailed and accurate model of a system. In the case of ParametricOD, this system is the overdrive pedal. By using this method, the plugin can replicate the behavior of the pedal’s knobs and switches, offering a wide range of tonal possibilities.
The release of ParametricOD marks a significant step forward in the realm of digital audio plugins. By offering a high-quality, parametric model of a guitar distortion pedal for free, Steve Ack is providing an invaluable resource for musicians and producers everywhere.
For those interested in enhancing their digital audio workstation with this unique plugin, ParametricOD can be downloaded for free from Steve Ack’s official website. Take advantage of this opportunity to explore new sonic landscapes with the first publicly available parametric Neural Amp Model.
