Tube Screamer is known really good to boost the guitar amp and make it sound tighter and better. But is the VST plugin of the famous Tube Screamer emulation has the tone as the real one?
In this post, I will list some of the Tube Screamer VST plugins that I’ve tried. In my opinion, they do sound good and sound real. And they are free plugins. So, nothing to lose to try them all if it is necessary.
Okay, here they are;
