A universe of real analog circuitry in plug-in form.

The Big Muff Pi hardware lug-in transcends the limitations of traditional DAW plug-ins to bring the unique qualities of analog sound to digital recording. Analog hardware has a magical warmth that is known for its sound and feel and the genesis behind this product was to take the world’s most beloved harmonic distortion/sustainer and transform it into a plug-in.cIt works like a standard DAW plug-in, but recorded tracks go through the actual analog circuitry of EHX’s Big Muff Pi, injecting analog warmth into your session. And it integrates seamlessly with all the most popular DAWs like Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cubase, GarageBand, Logic Pro X, Reaper and more. Simply connect the Big Muff to your DAW by USB, select a track and open the plug-in window. Instead of software emulation, you have real clipping diodes, overdriving transistors and nature itself coloring your sound. The analog circuit is pushed over the edge and loses control, so the sound you hear is the natural warmth of electromagnetic chaos. The Big Muff Pi plug-in can even function as a 2-in/2-out USB audio recording interface, which enables the user to record with or without the Big Muff effect engaged.

The Big Muff Pi hardware plug-in can also be used as a standalone pedal and shares the circuit design of the legendary 1973 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff. That coveted pedal has set the standard for musical distortion and has been heard on countless classic recordings. It’s renowned for its unmistakable articulation and exceptional sustain, and now it’s has been updated to be true stereo. It also features Tone Wicker, Tone Bypass and presets, with the ability store up to ten footswitch-accessible presets on the pedal itself and as many as your computer can hold.

Wailing solos. Crunchy rhythm. Fat drums. Thundering bass. Liven up just about any track or instrument in your mix. Not just for guitar players, the Big Muff Pi Hardware Plugin opens the universe of real analog circuitry to all digital recording artists and computer musicians!
