Image Line Software Releases the Guitar Effects Collection Hardcore

Both PC and Mac users now have access to 10 popular effects! Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium, October 14, 2008 - Image Line Software, the developer of FL Studio, introduces to the market a collection of guitar effects called ‘Hardcore’. Available for both Mac and PC users, Hardcore gives virtual access to 10 popular stomp-box style effects, each with a unique sonic character.

“When I started Hardcore the idea was to fill the ‘distortion’ guitar plugin gap in the Image Line FX suite, but it turned into a much bigger and exciting project” noted the developer of Hardcore, Maxx Claster. It seems that once Maxx had created one guitar plugin, it was difficult for him to stop. Maxx is well known to Image Line customers for the synths Morphine, PoiZone and Toxic.

Hardcore includes 10 carefully crafted stomp-box simulations:

- Distortion - Chorus - Flanger - Phaser - Reverb - Delay - Noise Gate - Equalizer - Compression - Modulator

Five stomp-box simulations can be arranged in any order on the Hardcore pedal board. The output then passes through an 8-band graphic EQ and Cabinet Simulator, tying it all together into one massive sound.

Plugin formats:

- FL Studio plugin - VSTi 2.4 (Win/OSX) - Audiounit (OSX)

System requirements:

Operating System: Windows XP/Vista and OSX 10.4 (Tiger) Processor: 2Ghz Intel Pentium 3 compatible CPU; Intel CPU or G4 PowerPC (Mac) RAM: 512 MB. Disk space: 20 MB.

Pricing and availability:

Hardcore can be ordered from the Image Line Software Web store for US $ 79. Till the end of October every order of Image Line Software products comes with a free copy of Hardcore.
