    While I'm annoyed with the "algorithmically perfect" tagline, sounds great:

    I just watched that video and was going to post here, but you beat me to it

    Does sound pretty good. But it also sounds like Ola. He's demo'd Amplitube, Mercuriall Spark, U530 and Triaxis, BIAS FX/AMP, and probably more - and he always sounds kinda the same.

    I really wish there was a demo. The NeuralDSP simulation of the Darkglass B7K had a demo, and I ended up buying that. So they're obviously capable of doing demos with their distribution system (through iLok plugin). Wonder why there isn't a demo of this Fortin model.

    This is Mike Fortin. There is no question that someone who has utter disdain for digital, would never release trash. This plugin will decimate other amp sims.

    it sounds good, but ola manages to make shit like bias sound good. I'll wait for a few more demos before I even think about buying it.

    There isnt a demo, because it is preorder right now. Demo will probably come out after it releases. Just like the Darkglass plugin. I preordered because I know Mike Fortin wont disappoint, and I love the Darkglass emulation. Its spot on

    I find it funny that Meshuggah wouldn't allow them to put the name on the plugin :lol:

    Probably because its not about Meshuggah. Its about Fortin, and promoting his brand

    Probably because they said no... it's the Meshuggah signature amp and that was the huge selling point of that limited production amp. From a marketing standpoint using the hype generated by that would have been a very good move.

    Sounds good but with every demo that Ola makes I'm more sure that his strings are made of titanium alloy and his pickups are powered by a nuclear reaction or something. There's just something about him and his gear that makes even the worst stuff out there to sound decent. So might as well just wait for other reviews to see if it actually sounds as good as Ola makes it seem. Especially since they only give you a 10€ discount for pre-ordering. And the Toneforge Misha plugin just got released today so I should try to mess around with it first.

    Pushing it without the Meshuggah brand opens interest up to those who aren't fans of Meshuggah (finding someone on this board who doesn't like Meshuggah is unusual unlike in the mass market where Meshuggah isn't everyone's cup of tea).

    Even though Ola sounds like Ola, this is fucking impressive. Definitely buying

    Hi! Nice to meet you.


    Anyway, I'm a bit sad that this doesn't cost significantly more than similar products while being limited to only a thousand downloads.

    As an owner of some Fortin gear, I think the plugin sounds pretty dead on. Looking forward to picking it up!

    Kewl. I just got a Captor and am trying to get away from amp sims so I doubt I will get this.

    It does sound good, that is Ola playing. I wouldn't go as far as saying this is going to decimate every other amp sim out there. I do think for $99 it is a great buy either way since it comes with a grind sim and an IR loader with mic placements.

    To me the mic placement is the selling point. Not sure how that would work with other IR's though. Seeing how you can get a TS808 for free and Le Cab and Ignite for FREE and other things like Thermionik for super cheap this thing better kick ass haha.

    I am also sad that this is not $999 dollars and limited to 1k downloads. This can't be Mike Fortin.

    When I think of Fortin I think of Meshuggah, Ola Englund and Kirk Hammett.

    Ola makes everything sound pretty much as good as each other, and I don't want Kirk's tone. I've played a good number of high gain amps, but I really haven't got a clue what a Fortin sounds like. I think I saw some once.
