Modern Progressive Essentials


Released on February 01, 2023.

Sound Design Overview

The Modern Progressive Essentials wave audio format impulse response library is based on an OwnHammer proprietary cabinet loaded with speaker types and captured in such a way as to recreate the guitar cabinet tones of the 2010's era New Wave of British Progressive Metal, from which it takes its most heavy sonic inspiration.

The signature and highly sought after "California crunch" in the midrange found here is instantly recognizable and undeniably familiar to those who hold this sound dear. While most at home in post millennium progressive hard rock and metal, this tone filter will serve well any who seek the harmonious marriage of chunk and clarity.
