DUESSELDORF, GERMANY: DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) plugin and audio DSP (Digital Signal Processing) developer Fuse Audio Labs is proud to announce availability of its DOZER DRIVE plugin — powering a flexible fusion of two of the most iconic guitar pedals of all time as an authentic-sounding single-entity emulation encompassing fuzz, overdrive, and distortion — as of April 14…
Readily ranging from subtle boosts to the point of saturation-driven seventh heaven, DOZER DRIVE is musically modeled on a legendary circular fuzz from 1966 and a 1979-vintage monstrous little green overdrive. On one side, its FUZZ channel covers all bases for creating classic dirty sounds; SCREAMER, on the other hand, hits a home run when it comes to delivering the typical mid-pronounced tone that became the industry-standard overdrive of choice. Creatively, DOZER DRIVE offers flexible channel routing for those that like to tweak — SCREAMER after FUZZ, FUZZ after SCREAMER, or both in PARALLEL.
The FUZZ channel provides an NPN vs. PNP switch that lets users choose between the typical clipping characteristics of silicone and germanium transistors, as well as a switchable DOOM MOD for conjuring up ultimate grind, while the SCREAMER channel’s FAT MOD switch shifts the mid-focused tone towards a much stronger bottom end. Finally, the MIX controller allows for fine-tuning the fuzz/overdrive ratio in PARALLEL MODE.
“Whether you want to sound like Jimi or Stevie Ray, or prefer to find your own perfect tone, DOZER DRIVE will become your best friend,” says Fuse Audio Labs CEO Reimund Dratwa. “It’s super versatile, yet only takes a few seconds to dial in amazing drive sounds for your guitar — or other instruments, if you dare! Dive into classic tones, tweak them to your heart’s content, and make them your own.”
