MOD Devices Releases the Onyx Amp and GxCreamMachine

The Onyx Amp and MOD Cabinets are available for free for MOD users.

Berlin, Germany (January 21, 2019) -- MOD Devices has strengthened its high-end plugin offer with new treats for its guitarists and bassists users. A new set of cabinets and amplifiers will be demonstrated for the first time at Winter Namm 2019.

The Onyx Amp by VeJa is the digital modeling of a real custom-made tube amplifier with three channels combined and separate pre and power amps. The Onyx offers control over a vast landscape of sounds: the gain knob, in combination with the clipping stage, creates unique distortions that range from sparkly clean all the way to modern metal. By tweaking the character knob, users can alter the voice of the amplifier from smooth warm to slashing bright.

The GxCreamMachine is inspired by the classic miniature guitar tube amp and produces a reliable classic British Rock overdrive tone. Its analog simulation of a full-stage power amp allows users to easily feed their signal straight into a PA system while preserving high-fidelity dynamics and attack responses.

MOD has also launched a new series of cabinets for guitar and bass. The MOD Modern, Vintage and Bass cabinets offer a range of classic and exotic impulse responses, drastically increasing the MOD Duo's tonal options.

The plugins are the fruits of MOD's effort to foster the work of outstanding independent developers, as much as providing its community of guitar and bass players with a constant stream or cutting-edge products.

GxCreamMachine is commercialized by Guitarix and the Onyx Amp and MOD Cabinets are available for free for MOD users. All of the plugins can be found in the MOD Plugin Shop.

The public can test these and other MOD software products, as well the MOD Duo and MOD Duo X audio-processors at the MOD Devices booth (#10106) at Winter Namm 2019.

Rig Rundown: Adam Shoenfeld

Whether in the studio or on his solo gigs, the Nashville session-guitar star holds a lotta cards, with guitars and amps for everything he’s dealt.

Adam Shoenfeld has helped shape the tone of modern country guitar. How? Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.



Reverend Flatroc Bigsby


If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
