In this video review for Production Expert, Technical Editor, James Ivey takes at the new Buxom Betty guitar amp simulation for the Universal Audio Apollo interfaces and the UAD-2 platform by Brainworx.
The original hardware 50-watt Friedman Buxom Betty is what guitar amp fantasies are made of. The amp is a gorgeous, hand-wired single-channel model that delivers the dynamic shimmer of American vintage valve combos as well as the roar of classic British valve stacks.
Developed by Brainworx, and officially endorsed by Friedman Amplifiers USA, the Friedman Buxom Betty Amplifier plug-in emulates this 50-watt, dual EL34 tube/valve screamer, for UAD hardware and UA Apollo Audio Interfaces.
It's All About Tone
From chicken-pickin’ punch to lush clean chords to some in-your-face rock and roll crunch, the Friedman Buxom Betty is all the valve tone you will ever need. By perfectly capturing its tastefully voiced EQ and three-position bright switch, as well as the dynamic, touch-sensitive feel of the real amp, the Friedman Buxom Betty plug-in lets you organically vary your tones, simply by using your guitar’s volume control. Choose between high/low inputs for even more textures, and revel in how easy it is to conjure satisfying, clanging clean tones and rich harmonic distortions.
