United Plugins introduces Electrum — an all-in-one single-screen guitar amp and pedalboard plug-in from development partner Muramasa Audio.
Guitar software suffers from flawed design, doing little to enhance efficiency and comfort when put to work in a musical environment. Ergonomics is, conversely, central to Muramasa Audio executing Electrum as an all-in-one single-screen guitar amp and pedalboard plug-in, providing its intended users with the fastest way to turn ideas into the perfect guitar sound. No need to take a deep dive through muscle memory-taxing menus in search of hidden options since everything is already accessible on one screen — cue colour-coded AMP, AUTOWAH, CABINET, COMPRESSOR, DELAY, DISTORTION, DOUBLER, EQ, GATE, MODULATION, and REVERB components, clearly viewable as part of the plug-in’s photorealistic 3D or flat 2D graphics at the convenient click of an appropriate button without affecting the sound or CPU (Central Processing Unit) load. Readily reordering those components is simply a case of dragging and dropping them into the desired position in the effect chain, without worrying about adhering to real-world setups to encourage experimentation. Examples like having a heavily-amped Reverb sent to the Modulation section’s FLANGER or trying the Distortion pedal after the Amp might well be impossible in the real world, yet all are perfectly possible in the wonderful world of Electrum! Duly double-clicking on the components’ colour-coded rectangles instantly bypasses them or otherwise for furthering ease of use.
Ultimately, achieving a perfect sound for any electric guitar is, indeed, quick and easy when working with Electrum, so let us dive deeper into what is on offer — no menu diving required! Featuring five versatile amps — BLUE, YELLOW, ORANGE, RED, and BLACK — arranged from lighter touch to most extreme, Electrum’s Amp section is at the effect chain’s core. Conveniently, all share the same controls, placing familiarity at the heart of a delightful user experience enhanced further with fast workflow.
A number of other notable features — including an advanced spectral analysis-based polyphonic TUNER (to ensure that performances are never out of tune) and easy-setup INPUT level analysis — are also available in Muramasa Audio’s amazing all-in-one single-screen guitar amp and pedalboard plug-in. Put it this way: with a ton of professionally-programmed presets to help guide guitarists where they wish to go, Electrum effectively provides everything needed to achieve a perfect sound for any electric guitar quickly and easily within a single window while making use of its internal 64-bit audio processing to handle any sampling rate up to 192 kHz (or even higher) plus smart bypass and intelligent sleep on silence attributes, all aimed at separating it from the sound of the (plug-in) crowd in today’s teeming marketplace.
Muramasa Audio’s Electrum is available to purchase for a time-limited super-introductory promo price of only €15.00 EUR until July 4, 2021, with another attractive time-limited promo price of €39.00 EUR continuing throughout the summer months until September 5, 2021 — rising thereafter to its regular price of €139.00 EUR — as an AAX-, AU-, VST-, and VST3-compatible plug-in (using internal 64-bit audio processing capable of handling any sample rate) directly from United Plugins here: https://unitedplugins.com/Electrum/ (Electrum entails more testing as a larger-scale plug-in project than can comfortably be handled by United Plugins’ production team alone; as such, users are invited to join its beta program here: https://unitedplugins.com/betaprogramme)
