    They won't. That would mean less money for them.

    Unless they release a "Quad Cortex Native" kinda thing, which I would definetely get.

    Well that or give you a mix-and-match option (make-your-own-suite thingy, with the existing batch of amps, cabs, and effects) or a la carte.

    As cool as the main amp sounds, would be kinda meh if the only REALLY good sounding amp in the Gojira suite is the lead amp.

    I own the Nolly and like it quite a bit, but figured I'd get the free trial and test this out today for fun.

    Ended up playing for hours, and finally A/B tested against the Nolly and I have to say I felt like the 5150 in the Gojira sounded and felt better and more responsive. The cleans and FX and presets (holy shit! So many.. and Haken guys included) are also great.

    I cant tell if it's their DSP actually improving from one plugin to the next or if it's just a new flavour (I tend to be really hesitant to hop on the hype train with these..), but this plugin is pretty killer.

    NDSP has a new plugin team, so it very well could be better.

    Not if they built a framework and sold them as expansion packs or individually via an online market place. Most other plugins makers are doing it this way. It is better for both parties, IMHO. The Neural stuff is a pain in the butt to combine because of all the stand alone plugins they do. Mercurial is the other big offender, IMHO.

    STL recently transitioned to this model with their stuff (the *hub products).

    Love Gojira. Starting at 4:00, Explosia has the simplest, grooviest, heavy fucking riff.

    I asked them this in a recent Q&A they did on their YT channel and they aren't planning anything like this. I do have a solution for this though and I'm putting together a complete guide on how to do it.

    Use any amp sim/ plugin with ANY vst plugin and all controllable from 1 midi pedal board.

    Anyone have fractal settings for that sweet whammy pedal riff?

    I agree 100% with everything. In fact, I stopped buying Mercuriall stuff (and guitar plugins in general) because of this.

    Can you just use the whammy or do you need to use all the sections?

    I’m pretty sure the pedals are connected to the amp, so if you turn the amp off, you get nothing.

    Considering how much people love this whammy pedal I wonder if they’ll release a standalone version? Maybe add an interval selector like a real Whammy/Drop pedal for easier downtuning instead of doing it by ear.

    I’m happy they finally did something different (more) with the various effects available. They’ve already got a ton of overlap on high gain stuff with basically the same effect pedals on all the Archetypes, so it’s nice to see something new for a change. My initial thought was “Oh cool, ANOTHER metal Archetype.” I’m glad I was wrong.

    You can use the whammy by itself if you just put the Gojira vst before some other amp vst in your daw. Again, this type of thing can be taxing on your CPU so it isn't always the best idea for tracking/jamming but it works fine in post.

    I occasionally use a free octaver vst (Pitchproof) that I'm not thrilled with, and the Gojira one seems cool. So I'd end up using a couple things from it at least. Maybe after I build a new pc.

    Right click on each section of the plugin completely disables it, which I guess releases CPU usage (or at least it should). You could disable everything but the pre-FX section for the whammy.

    You can turn off each individual component. It is possible to just use the whammy and nothing else.

    This is my approach with Toontrack (EZDrummer) as well; they run sales all the time. Suckas pay full price!

    I have Nolly, Fortin Cali Suite and Gojira. I haven't mic'd a cab in ages. The FX section on Gojira is the coolest thing about this but the sounds are there too. However, in the high gain tones for all of these, you tend to get a lot of similarities.
