Matthias Becker Cortex [Freeware]
Installing Matthias Becker Cortex plug-in wasn't a problem at all because it installs itself when you install Cubase. I used to run Cubase SX 2.0 before I got my Pro Tools rig and this was one of my plug-ins I used within that configuration. Matthias Becker Cortex always ran smoothly and stably for me without any compatibility problems or other issues. I've never seen the manual for Matthias Becker Cortex so I can't speak to if it is helpful or not when trying to figure out this plug-in.


When I used this plug-in in Cubase SX 2.0 I was running it on a Hewlett Packard lap top that had a 3.0 Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM. Matthias Becker Cortex and Cubase as a whole always ran pretty well with this configuration and while I didn't use this plug-in everyday, when I did use it I was able to run a few of them at once if I so desired. It can be used both as a stereo or mono plug-in.


I've been using Matthias Becker Cortex for about five years and while it wasn't my first choice for warming up a signal, it did work well for me when I found a place to use it. The plug-in is pretty easy to use as it has knobs for high filter, tape speed, drive, characteristics, input, and output. It also has a series of buttons to determine what will show up on the meters. Since the plug-in came free , I can't really complain too much about it, but suffice it to say that sometimes it doesn't always sound that realistic sounding. In other words, if you want to warm up your signal it is probably best to do so at the source or with your pre-amps or other hardware, as it is almost impossible to do so all the time with a plug-in. This being said, for those using Cubase, Matthias Becker Cortex comes in handy and is nice to have.

- Easy installation as all VSTs

- No incompatibility as little software I use (Kristal)

- The simulation SETTING THE prampli are as simple as a .. prampli with few options in addition to the genre to choose between two models of equalizer, choose whether you want a transistor or rather its lights (the sound of "lights" is uh .. not even convincing when trs) .
I put a little more time understanding the simulation SETTING THE HP. But with the manual in PDF ptit is Tlcharger with, everything goes well.
I confess that I have not tried the same effects.

I put 8 because even when the programming of four HPs could be simpler.


- I have an Athlon 1.6 Ghz with 256 MB of RAM and a sound card shit.

- Cortex works fine but when both plug-ins are on (the amp simulation and the simulation of HP, I hear), a food 1 / 5 of my poor CPU. So greedy for a VST.
However, for an amp simulation is as a food frquent as a (jme remember GreenMachine an example)

- You can choose between "High" and "Low" Quality, however, allowing resources to lower solicited. But the sound is sometimes trs diffrent in Low and High quality (especially for HP). There's not really of interest to be Low.

I put 6 to amme if I am aware that my CPU is relatively feeble.


- I did not test every angle, frankly I Tlcharger yesterday. I have not tried the same effects that are in the pack, only simus amp and HP.

- The amp simulation only gives her a little rotten. It offers a lot of when rglages same, and that work fairly well at that. There is a rglage or we can choose the proportion of transistors and lamps in the prampli. The sound of the lamp is not any convincing trs, m'enfin good, was used.
When we add the simulation of HP (oldlab) behind, has become the norm. If we take the time rgler everything was good about the results in clean and distorted sound. I would say that these same plugs arrive at the GuitarSuite of Simulanalog.
Note: you can make good use trs OldLab APRS any other VST. For example, I never tried the verse of the JCM900 GuitarSuite but must be a lot ^ ^

- Qualitprix? huahahah

Come on, let's go for a 10/10. What's free, has a worth ^ ^

[edit] That said, the simulation of HP not called "OldLab" but "OldCab" as "Office" in English (or amricain?)
