Free Software Friday - ChopTones Impulse Response Loader

Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.

ChopTones, known for their exhaustive range of premium digital guitar tones and FX, is giving away the Impulse Response Loader for free until October 18th, 2021. 

It's no secret that with tools like Kemper, Neural DSP, Axe FX and Fractal Audio that great sounding guitar need not be limited to hardware alone, but they cost a serious amount of money. So, if you've yet to be swayed by the digital movement and are looking for a cost-effective way to try out what's possible, this may be just what you're looking for. 

What's included in the Impulse Response Loader is 10 of ChopTones' premium cabinet IRs. These include five 'single' IRs in the form of a Mesa Boogie 4×12, Marshall 1960 4×12, Fender Twin Reverb 2×12, Hughes & Kettner 4×12, and a Vox 2×12.

Additionally there five 'mix' IRs featuring American Classic, American Vintage, Brit Classic, German Classic, and Tweed Classic.

As a two-slot IR Loader, you can pair different combinations within the plugin and then create your own unique sounds. As well as mixing and matching IRs, you can tweak your sound using the 3-Band EQ, output gain controls and high and low-pass filters. If you find yourself hungry for more options, you can expand into ChopTones' many premium IR packs. 

While this is tailored towards guitarists looking to create their own custom sounds, the IR Loader can be used on any audio to create everything from atmospheres, textures, sound effects and more, so don't discount this if you're not a guitarist. 

Impulse Response Loader is available for Windows and macOS and can be downloaded for free using the link below until 18th October, 2021.
