Epiphone Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior: A punk rock classic?

Epiphone Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul JuniorGreen Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong gets a new signature model Les Paul Junior from Epiphone. It comes in a Classic White finish and is fitted with a powerful PRO P-90 pickup.

Epiphone Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior

Based on Floyd, which is Billy Joe Armstrong’s 1956 Les Paul Junior, this new signature model should please the fans. These new Epiphone Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior signature models look very similar to his long discontinued Gibson model, except rather than being black or sunburst, these come in a Classic White finish. We did get a humbucker-loaded version from Gibson back in 2018, but I don’t believe that one is as desirable as the original P90 version.

The single-pickup model is powered by an Epiphone PRO P-90 in the bridge position, wired via a single volume and tone control. Epiphone has used CTS pots and orange drop capacitors, so it should help it stay free from crackles. The Epiphone PRO P-90 pickup is wound hot and is fully wax potted, therefore it should avoid any microphonic feedback.

Simple = Tone

With a traditional mahogany body and matching Vintage 50s profile neck, plus a12″ radius Indian Laurel fretboard, it is perfect for banging out classic rock, blues, and punk tunes. So if you fancy a nice simple guitar layout, that allows you to get on with playing, then this Les Paul Junior style is perfect for just that. No frills, just tone.

The neck has 22 medium jumbo frets and a GraphTech nut, along with a set of Epiphone’s Vintage Deluxe tuners. The only other hardware is a wrap-around Lightning Bar bridge. This makes this guitar about as simple as you can get, which is a huge bonus in many ways.

Leopard Print

Each guitar has Billy Joe’s signature embossed on the rear of the headstock and comes in a custom hardshell case. so expect a leopard print interior for the case.

RRP – USD 549

Fender rolls out new Acoustasonic Player Telecaster

Fender Acoustasonic Player TelecasterFender’s new Mexican-made Acoustasonic Player Telecaster comes with a more streamlined set of features and at a cheaper price point. Originally released back in 2019, the Acoustasonic series was hugely popular, but priced too high for some. So if you were looking for those Acoustasonic tones, but on a budget, this new model may be worth checking out.

Fender Acoustasonic Player Telecaster

The new made-in-Mexico Fender Acoustasonic Player Telecaster models come in four colours: Brushed Black, Butterscotch Blonde, Shadow Burst, and Arctic White. They follow the basic formula of the US-made models, but come with a streamlined feature set, so you miss out on a couple of hardware options. This means these Mexican-made models have two pickups, rather than three. These include a piezo and an electric Noiseless N4, devised with Fishman, and should give a hum-free performance.

Fender Acoustasonic Player Telecaster Brushed Black

A Budget Blend?

You get six voices that are supposedly the “best of” acoustic and electric voicings, powered by the Acoustic Engine, and you get a Blend Knob which gives you the ability to blend between electric and acoustic tones.

Construction of these new models is essentially the same as the USA version. The guitar has a hollow Telecaster-shaped body, with a comfortable forearm contour and scalloped heel. Other features include the patented Stringed Instrument Resonance System, or SIRS for short, a mahogany neck, and a rosewood fingerboard and bridge.

These could be big sellers for Fender. Due to the cut-down electronics/pickups, and being made in Mexico, you save around £400-500 compared to a US-built model. So it’s not a bad saving, and it offers most of what the original USA Acoustasonic Telecaster has to offer. Check out the official demo video below to hear these new Mexican-made versions in action.

Waves SSL EV2 Channel: SSL 4000E console sound for your DAW

SSL EV2 ChannelWaves launched a new SSL-authorized plug-in to really kick off its Black Friday campaign. The new SSL EV2 Channel reincarnates the SSL 4000E console channel strip complete with an emulation of the SSL O2 Brown EQ, mic/line input saturation, and other accomplishments facilitated by Waves’ Precision Analog Component modeling tech. Here’s more about the new plug-in, built from referencing an authentic SSL-selected console…

Waves SSL EV2 Channel

One of the more interesting features in what’s otherwise a faithful SSL channel strip for your DAW is the ability to switch between the ‘Black’ and ‘Brown’ SSL EQs. The former is clean and crisp, the latter is crunchy and saturated. Additionally, there’s the Analog switch to introduce harmonic distortion in what could be a reasonably clean input section otherwise.

The Dynamics section features both the soft-knee compressor/limiter and gate/expander that you can place before or after the EQ to your taste. Make-up gain is applied automatically, as is in the original hardware.

All in all, the SSL EV2 channel doesn’t seem to skip a beat. It appears to be up there with brainworx’s exhaustive SSL emulations and even the Oxford manufacturer’s own plug-ins in terms of quality and obsessive attention to detail. With over 600 presets from almost everyone that’s ever mattered in mainstream music production in the past 20 years or so, this one comes in seriously packing!

SSL EV2 Channel

SSL EV2 Channel

Price and availability

SSL EV2 Channel is available now from Waves in all major plug-in formats, priced USD 40 (down from the regular USD 249). You may be aware that Waves stuff is on a perpetual sale, so by all means explore all the available purchase options (discounts, bundles, upgrades, etc) before plunking down the cash. For example, owners of the SSL E or G Channel Waves plug-ins can nab the EV2 Channel for just USD 30 at the moment. As usual, Waves provides a free demo version and a downloadable user manual as well.

Master Tones Widener & Deepener: Save cash on two new analog-inspired enhancers

Master Tones Widener and DeepenerHailing from Taiwan, the hard-working people at Master Tones present a pair of plug-ins: Widener and Deepener. They are sold individually for USD 99 each, or paired in The Stage Package bundle. Normally, the latter costs USD 159, but the introductory price is USD 119. So that’s considerable savings on a pair of promising plug-ins that hide technological sophistication behind simple, intuitive interfaces.

Master Tones – The Stage Package

Both plug-ins are developed on the back of Master Tones’s Ariosa technology for AI-powered modeling. What can they do for you? In short, The Widener expands the stereo image without phasing artifacts and The Deepener alters the perceived depth of the center stage. Both plug-ins can effect the whole spectrum or only specific frequency ranges. Together, they comprise The Stage Package with a bundle price that’s fairly attractive at the moment (USD 119, down from USD 159). There are also 14-day trial versions of both plug-ins to try before buying.

Owing to the developer’s Ariosa AI tech, The Widener is said to widen the stereo image without phasing artefacts. There’s also the EQ feature that lets you target a specific frequency range. Additional features include Input and Output gain with reverse link, presets, and supported sample rates up to 96kHz.

Likewise, The Deepener lets you take the sound source to a desired distance from the center of the sound stage. The control and feature sets are the same as with The Widener – simple and clear. I haven’t tested the plug-ins myself, but if they can accomplish their stated goals while requirinh so little user input, then this is smart AI tech we’re talking about!

Master Tones The Widener
Master Tones - The Deepener

The Stage Package – Price and availability

The Stage Package bundle normally costs USD 159, but the introductory price is USD 119. It’s a bit of a steal, considering each plug-in is priced USD 99 individually. The Widener and The Deepener work under macOS 10.9 (or above) and Windows 10 in 64-bit VST3, AU, and AAX formats.

LiquidSonics Lustrous Plates Surround: 10 reverb modes for distinguished ambiance

Lustrous Plates SurroundDeveloper LiquidSonics has a new reverb plug-in out: Lustrous Plates Surround. Technically, Lustrous Plates is a finely aged reverb from 2019 or so. But it still holds up splendidly and now, its distinct plate reverb character can be had in full Atmos glory!

LiquidSonics Lustrous Plates Surround

Lustrous Plates Surround is a contemporary plate reverb plug-in with ten different reverb models. They can be used in Surround and Atmos mixes up to 7.1.6, so chances are moviegoers be hearing this one a lot! Designed with multi-channel mixing in mind, Lustrous Plates Surround is also a fully decorrelated multi-channel plate reverb which is still something rare. According to the developer, it’s actually non-existent. I’d take LiquidSonics’ word for that – they are smart people!

Anyway, the reverb is said to be excellent at artefact-free fold-down, which is considered essential for mixing home and headphones-focused Atmos audio. Along these lines, you may be bringing classic tracks featuring plate reverbs into Atmos, or working on original surround material calling for plate reverbs. That’s delicate work, and Lustrous Plates claims to be the right tool for the job.

Surround Edition

The Surround edition has all the features from the original Stereo plug-in, including the even diffusion and spectral decay of ten real hardware plates. It also brings along many enhancements and features meant for modern surround production workflows. For example, Lustrous Plates Surround offers independent control over direct and cross-feed signals, which is crucial for great-sounding surround reverbs. While plate reverbs typically have an immediate onset, the Surround edition provides bloom and delay controls to let the reverb spread gently across the surround field. Likewise, level and delay let you control when and how much of the signal propagates into adjacent surround channels.

Lustrous Plates Surround

Additionally, plate reverbs typically have solid low end, especially with decay times headed towards the upper end of the range. High and low-cut filters with selectable roll-off curves can be used to dial in as much weight and sizzle as needed.

10 reverb models

Lustrous Plates Surround offers 10 different reverb models:

  • Chrome: rich and full-bodied, with a classic multi-band decay profile
  • Silver: light and airy, with attenuated low-mids for added clarity
  • Steel: similar to the chrome plate, but with a reduced low frequency decay time
  • Rhodium: bright and rich, with neutral decay
  • Beryllium: highly reflective metal plate with a bright tone
  • Corbomite: dense and heavy-sounding plate reverb
  • Iridium: dense, with highly emphasised low frequency decay
  • Osmium: rich reverb capable of clean, short ambience
  • Platinum: bright and dense, with rich lows on longer decay times
  • Gold: emulation of the rare ‘gold foil’ 240 compact plate reverb

Lustrous Plates Surround – Price and availability

Available in 64-bit VST/VST3, AU and AAX plug-in formats for Windows (7 or above) and Mac (10.9 or above), Lustrous Plates Surround is on sale at an introductory price of USD 179 until December 5, 2021. The regular price is USD 249. Note that a Surround edition license will also unlock the Standard edition. Also, current owners of a perpetual license for Lustrous Plates may upgrade for USD 50. A demo version is available as well, although it requires the free iLok License Manager app for authorization.

Tone Empire Firechild: Four Fairchild compressor emulations in one plug-in

Tone Empire FirechildTone Empire has taken on the “King of Compressors” with the new Firechild plug-in, which emulates four models of the legendary Fairchild. With three tube versions and a “clean” model that doesn’t color the signal, Firechild aims to cover all your Vari-Mu compression needs.

Tone Empire Firechild

At the heart of Firechild are three different tube versions of the Fairchild (A, B and C), which provide different tube saturation colors, according to the developer. Tone Empire says that they sampled the actual hardware units at multiple gain and compression settings, and then used dynamic convolution technology to turn these samples into accurate software recreations of the classic. A bias knob lets you dial in additional saturation.

In addition to the three tube modes, the Firechild plug-in offers a transparent mode that deactivates the convolution and provides a coloration-free, “clean” emulation. This can be handy if you want the typical Fairchild characteristics, including the fast attack times and various release modes, but without the tube coloration.

The developer has taken the emulation a step further by adding a knee control for further shaping of the compression characteristics. There’s also a side-chain section, which allows you to adjust the side-chain signal using a pair of high pass and low pass filters (24 dB/oct) and side-chain gain. And finally, Tone Empire has added a mix knob for parallel processing.

While Firechild aims to provide an accurate software recreation of the timeless classic, it also offers a couple of interesting options and possibilities that many other emulations don’t have. At the low intro price, it looks like a great addition to any plug-in folder.

Price and compatibility

Tone Empire Firechild is now available for an introductory price of USD 49. The regular price will be USD 99. A 15-day trial is available.

The plug-in runs on macOS 10.13 or higher (M1 supported) and Windows 10 or higher in VST3, AU and AAX formats (64 bit).

Best free plug-ins this week: Dr Phase, Initial Clipper and ReLife

Best free plug-ins this weekSunday is freeware day here at Gearnews, and we’ve got three fantastic new plug-ins for you this week: an emulation of the most famous phaser ever, a cool-looking soft clipper that also does saturation, and a tool for breathing life into dull-sounding audio tracks. Here’s Dr Phase, Initial Clipper and ReLife.

Be sure to visit our archives for many more free plug-ins!

Audiority Dr Phase

Audiority Dr PhasePedal aficionados will recognize this classic instantly: Dr Phase by Audiority is of course an emulation of the classic MXR Phase 90, probably the best-known phaser pedal of all times. The plug-in’s single knob lets you set the modulation speed. And Audiority has added a couple of very useful extras. You can sync the effect to your song tempo, adjust the pre and post effect gain and dry/wet mix, and activate vintage mode for extra vintage vibes. Sounds great on guitar and everything else!

Dr Phase is available for Windows 7 or higher (64 bit) and macOS 10.8 or higher (M1 supported) in VST, VST3, AU and AAX formats.

Initial Audio Initial Clipper

Initial Audio Initial ClipperInitial Clipper is a free soft clipper plug-in that prevents your signal from going above 0 dB. The threshold control determines the point above which the clipping is introduced. Initial Audio has also added saturation, because, why not?! You can adjust the positive and negative saturation independently, thereby adding extra harmonic content and warmth to your signal. And have you seen that sweet-looking peak display that shows you exactly what’s going on?

Initial Clipper is available for Windows and macOS (M1 supported) in VST and AU formats (64 bit).

Analog Obsession ReLife

Analog Obsession ReLifeAnalog Obsession says that ReLife gives “second life to your lifeless tracks”. While we don’t know exactly how it accomplishes this task, that sounds like a great idea! Between the gain-compensated input and output knobs lies the shaping section that consists of a one-knob dynamic EQ named SHAPE and a LIFE control that works in mysterious ways to bring your track to life. There’s also a MIX knob that allows you to blend the wet and dry signals.

ReLife is available for Windows and macOS in VST, VST3 and AU formats.
