Neural DSP Releases Guitar Plugin 'Fortin Nameless Suite X'

Neural DSP has announced the launch of the Fortin Nameless Suite X, a guitar plugin that is the culmination of six years of sonic evolution and engineering, inspired by Mike Fortin’s singular, uncompromising approach to building some of the world’s most aggressive amplifiers.

These are now captured in a completely reimagined update to the Fortin Nameless Suite, which Neural DSP first unveiled in 2018, and which at the time was considered the ne plus ultra of assertive metal sound. An enigmatic masterpiece that shattered conventions and redefined the very essence of guitar tone, the Fortin Nameless Suite was the genesis of a new era in guitar sound. Now, six years later, this monument to metal has returned, more formidable than ever.

“The Fortin Nameless Suite X is a complete redevelopment of the original Fortin Nameless Suite that we introduced in 2018, and it reflects the enormous advances that Neural DSP Technologies has made in that time,” states Neural CEO Douglas Castro. “Our modeling technology has been able to even more precisely capture the nuances and features of the Fortin amplifier. Mike Fortin’s sonic genius has been at the core of so many great metal guitarists’ signature sounds, and now we’re able to bring that exceptional capability to many more of them everywhere.”

Pre Effects

These sonic gems are recreations of Fortin’s stomp boxes, which let guitarists take his cutting edge to the stage. As part of Fortin Nameless Suite X, they let you craft the attack of your sound from the first note.

GRIND — Besides additional gain, GRIND adds an incredible amount of clarity and articulation to the sound, making every note defined and present, even when highly distorted.

ZUUL — Widely regarded as the epitome of noise gate performance and transparency, this studio-grade virtual noise gate lets the spaces between the notes create a sonic frame for them.

HEXDRIVE — An overdrive pedal with a higher output than most. With additional headroom and an irregular style of clipping, it provides an outstanding blend of both boost and overdrive.
