STL Tonality is an all-in-one Guitar Plug-in Suite developed exclusively from none other than Will Putney’s Signature Guitar sounds. We've spent the last year developing this plug-in alongside Putney to recreate the power and quality of Will's production work, and we are all extremely proud of the result.
Will's entire setup is in this plug-in, including the modeling of his amps, pedals, cabs, summing mixer, and master eq module. Aside from the stock Presets, we have included nearly 100 of Wills guitar & bass album tones, which were recreated meticulously with unique amp/cab settings.
Designed by STL Tones & Putney, the Will Putney Plug-in has been developed to capture every sonic aspect of what make’s his guitar tones so distinctive.
AMP1 - is developed from arguably one of the most well-known amps in the metal industry. Focused on the characteristics of the lead channel.
AMP2 - is developed from a German voiced high gain amp with an aggressive punch. This amp is responsible for some of the smoothest, crunchiest tones in the higher gain realm.
AMP3 - is developed from a well-known American amp. This rock ’n’ roll-voiced amp has 2 channels. Ch1 for American sounding clean-semi distorted tones, Ch2 for thick high gain. Both channels offer ‘Normal’ & ‘Tight’ modes.
AMP4 - is developed from another German beast. The tight precision distortion that this amp produces is unparalleled. The 2 channels in this module cover a wide variety of your gain needs.
AMP5 - is developed from the schematics of a revered vintage American bass amp from 1969. This amp remains an unmistakable part of the bass tones for many generations of musicians. The module has 2 modes, ‘Bright’ & ‘Normal’.
Users have access to 3 of Will Putney’s personal Overdrive, Delay and Reverb pedals. The distortion pedal is a big part of Will’s sound and has never been developed in plug-in format, until now!
The Cabinet Module within STL Tonality has been updated to allow you to:
• Adjust the microphone placement on an X, Y, Z-axes (3D)
• Angle the microphone up to 45 degrees.
• Size scaled main point mixer gives you better creative control
• External impulse response loading capabilities.
For the first time in the Tonality series, we are including Putney’s Master EQ Module at the last stage in the signal chain. This unit was modelled from Putney’s hardware unit.
Now you can mix dual amps & dual cabs at the same time. Putney uses this technique frequently to achieve his signature sounds. Users have access to his mix presets of dual amp/cab combinations.
