The new design includes
analogue waveform stereotyping, an unusual
ten-drawbar tone system, powerful overdrive,
built-in reverb, and dynamic crushing for that
‘speaker cracking under the strain’ feel. A newly
tailored version of the Real Rotor speaker simulator
is also built in.
The GutterSnipe allows more
aggressive sounds than previous FreeST organs, due
to its guitar amp-style pre-gain structure. But
before I get into that I need to mention the
DI/Cab button, because it’s more than a simple
Rotary on/off switch – it’s a complete mode change.
GutterSnipe for Windows (VST) is
available as freeware.
