Blue Cat’s Destructor ($99)

Don’t let the name fool you, “Destructor” comes with countless creative possibilities.

The amp and cab emulations that Blue Cat offers are super high quality. But the “tone map” is even more exciting.

The tone map allows you to easily mix and match the sounds of different amps. Can’t decide between a twangy clean amp or a crunchy distortion? You can have both.

Simply move the tone map’s cursor in-between sounds you like and it will combine them.

Destructor’s tone map makes homing in on the right sound quick and easy. I highly recommend it for anyone who thinks they’ll be working in a variety of styles.
