Included Effects

Bundled effects plug-in suite with both VST 3 and AU versions of the onboard DSP plug-ins, providing additional useful sound-shaping and FX tools.
REV-X reverb is a complex reverb algorithm featuring three types of reverb effect Hall, Room and Plate simulations each including reverb time and level controls.
Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip combines a sidechain-enabled compressor and a three-band parametric equalizer.
Guitar Amp Classics are guitar amplifier effects that make extensive use of advanced Yamaha modeling technology, delivering highly realistic and finely tuned emulations of classic tube and transistor amplifier tones. Four amp types with different sonic characteristics are provided.
Clean - Optimized for clean tones, this amp effectively simulates the tight brilliance of transistor amplifiers.
Crunch is the amp type to use when you want lightly overdriven crunch tones. It simulates the type of vintage tube amplifiers that are favored for classic blues, rock, soul, R'n'B and similar styles.
Drive amp type provides a selection of distortion sounds that simulate the tonal character of high-gain tube amplifiers.
Lead simulates a high gain tube amp that is rich in overtones. Ideally suited to playing lead guitar lines that will fit well within an ensemble mix, it can also be set up for crisp accompaniment tones, making it a very versatile emulation.
