The METALLURGY Collection
A Power Trio of Plugins for Metal Guitarists


The Metallurgy® Collection of amplifier and effects plugins was created specifically for guitarists who wish to quickly and easily access contemporary versions of classic and modern metal tones—as well as craft original tones of their own. The collection bundles the Modern, Thrash, and Doom plugins, which are also available individually.

The three Metallurgy Collection plugins feature amplifier and effects models drawn from the award-winning HX® family of products—ensuring outstanding sound quality and dynamic responsiveness. Each of the plugins features four amplifier types that may be paired with any of eight speaker cabinets. Two microphones may be selected from a virtual "mic locker" containing eight microphone types, and these may be combined with a stereo room mic array. Up to two third-party impulse responses (IRs) may be substituted for the factory mics. All of the microphones may be positioned in various ways and a 4-band parametric EQ allows you to sculpt the cabinet tone even further. Four pre-amplifier and three post-amplifier effects are also provided—including polyphonic pitch-shifting—as are a noise gate and a chromatic tuner.

The amp, cab, and effects rigs appear much as they would in the analog world thanks to the plugins' photorealistic user interfaces, making it fun and easy to tweak presets to suit your stylistic needs or assemble new rigs of your own.

In addition to being used as VST3, AU, or AAX plugins within any DAW, the Modern, Thrash, and Doom plugins also function as standalone applications—making the Metallurgy Collection one of the most versatile tone-creation tools available.



For Modern Metal Guitarists

The Metallurgy: Modern plugin focuses on the searing, saturated tones of modern metal and progressive metal, with the midrange emphasis and tight low end favored by extended-range and detuned guitarists.



For Doom Metal Guitarists

The Metallurgy: Doom plugin churns out gloomy tones that emphasize the low-end frequencies ideal for the girthy riffs and gargantuan drones favored by doom guitarists.

For Thrash Metal Guitarists

The Metallurgy: Thrash plugin focuses on the tight, mid-scooped, hyper-aggressive tones deployed by thrash guitarists.
