Practice Amp Tone Check! Orange Crush 20RT, Blackstar ID:CORE 20 v3, Marshall CODE25https://www.facebook.com/noisegateAUS | https://www.instagram.com/noisegate_aus/
CRUSH VS CORE VS CODE!
Check out the first in our new 'Tone Check' video series focused on comparing guitar gear, first up we're taking a look at 3 leading practice amps, the Orange Crush 20RT, Blackstar ID:CORE 20 v3 and Marshall Code25.
These 3 guitar amplifiers all sit roughly around the same price, but vary wildly in their complexity. The Orange is a classic plug'n'play with minimal controls, the Blackstar offers 6 different voices, FX and USB connectivity, and the Marshall takes tone tweaking to new heights with its digital modular approach.
For us, the Blackstar ID:CORE stood out with its solid sound straight out-of-the-box and bonus features like the stereo speakers and the new Cab Rig Lite software for recording over USB.
Tech details: Andy plugs straight into the amp with a custom Tele and an ESP E-II Eclipse. Sound was recorded via an AKG 414 condenser though a Universal Audio Apollo x8 interface.

Just Sounds: Source Audio Ultrawave Jam with Bass, Guitar & Synthhttps://www.facebook.com/noisegateAUS
We've been so stoked on the Source Audio Ultrawave Multiband Processor pedal and the incredible presets already available in the Neuro app's community we decided to put together a fun little jam video.
Steve uses the 'Royal Flood' preset by Leodinardio on bass guitar.
Tim uses the 'Clean Dynamic Spectral' preset by Proteus on guitar.
At the end, Tristan used the wonderfully named 'Where U Want This Load of Gravel' preset by Proteus on the synth bass, and Roswell Fuzz by Source Audio themselves on the lead.
UAD-2 Plugin of the Month: Ocean Way Studios [room modeling plug‑in]https://www.facebook.com/noisegateAUS
Today we're shining a light on the Ocean Way Studio dynamic room modeling UAD-2 plugin by Universal Audio, an incredibly impressive achievement in acoustic space emulation. This plugin allows you to put your sounds into the famed rooms of Ocean Way Studios, spaces that shaped records by artists like Ray Charles, Beach Boys, Rolling Stones and even Radiohead.
As Tristan demonstrates here, the plugin really shines with drums, bringing percussion that's lacking character to life. That said, it's well worth experimenting with other sounds too!
