    They only started teasing this one recently. I know a lot of guys were looking for a Nolly Amp Suite from a few companies so its no surprise Neural DSP made one.

    Audio clip sounds great but it is Nolly. Having a hi-gain rhythm amp and a hi-gain lead amp is something I wish more companies would do. Two overdrives is another one. On paper this plugin ticks a lot of boxes for me. Demo should be available next week when its released to find out.

    My skepticism towards the current internet marketing hype machine aside I’ve been a fan of Nollys for 10 years so if he’s got something to sell me man he’s one of the best to do it

    That said I wish companies would put something out in iOS as a stand alone so you’d just need an iPad and an FRFR for a complete totally sick rig, which positive grid was trying to do but sucked at

    ^Nobody else has done that yet? Wow. Thats a huge market.



    From Ola's video is sounds and responds similar to the Misha Toneforge plugin. It has a lot of that really clear chords but with a blanket over the highs tone and cut bass for djent. Not really what I'd look for in a sim.

    Given Neural's track record I'd be more than willing to pick this up.

    I was checking my Instagram at work every 30 minutes today to see if they finally announced it. I was sure the plugin would have been an Alex Wade signature since he was the only person I saw teasing it aside from Neural DSP. But I'm honestly more excited about this. Glad they included a pre-delay this time. That feature would have made the Plini plugin absolutely flawless.

    I mean you do have stuff like amplitude and BIAS but I guess the super cutting edge needs time to trickle down to lower power devices.

    Man I've forgotten how wild Nolly's vibrato sounds!

    I'm sad to say that I'm still hearing what I haven't gotten along with in the digital domain. The tones are objectively great, but entirely uninteresting. I think Nolly's playing is gonna sell a TON of licenses for these, but I'd be curious to see if we get anything unique as a result of it. Super smart of Nolly to use a song with so many soft/hard picking dynamics to showcase the range at least and the master volume thing is super cool.

    I see this immediately taking off and causing every modern metal project to sound even more similar. Can't say I necessarily hate that because it's really going to separate the good songwriting from the soullessly regurgitated. At least it'll be easier to convince your band to go for an idea if you're presenting a demo with these tones from the start--hard to say 'No' to Nolly..

    This looks pretty cool. Really need to try some of this Neural DSP stuff.

    Dang, Nolly has some cool PRS's there.

    Anyone else curious what amps they used as inspiration? Amp 3 is almost certainly some iteration of 5150. The looks of amp 4 definitely make me think of the MT15 but I’m not familiar enough with their sound to know either way. Not idea on amps 1 and 2.

    On the promo page for the plugin, it shows a black and white photo of Nolly modifying a couple of amp heads. I recognize the 5150, but maybe if someone else is good at puzzles they might be able to figure the other one.

    A few people said a Diezel VH4 is most likely one of them. One is definitely a 5150.

    I was surprised that I liked the tones Ola was getting from this in the video. Now I just gotta AB it with the Alex Wade one coming out...

    Wait, is that confirmed? I thought this is the plugin that Alex Wade was teasing.

    Really? That’s not what it seemed like when he was posting about it.

    EDIT: Damn. Found it, you’re right.

    He did make it sound like it was his own plug-in from that post. Maybe he will get one too!
