Neural DSP announced the launch of Archetype: Mateus Asato, the latest in a series of plugin collaborations with exceptional and unique world-class guitarists. Brazilian born Asato’s credentials are impeccable: he’s included on Top-10 Guitarist honor rolls, and his session credits reads like a who’s who of contemporary and classic artists, including Bruno Mars, Silk Sonic, Selena Gomez, Carrie Underwood, Joe Satriani, and many others who have sought out his distinct blend of technical prowess and soulful, expressive playing.
Now, Neural DSP has precisely and authentically virtualized this game-changing guitarist’s signature sound in Archetype: Mateus Asato. Asato’s styles and tones range from silky smooth to edgy and assertive, and the collection of his amplifiers included with Archetype: Mateus Asato reflects that. A British-voiced amp made tighter, brighter, and punchier offers a “vintage-clean” sound – that’s incredibly dynamic and responsive, perfect for edge-of-breakup tones. A more modern clean tone comes from boutique re-interpretation of a Fender-style amplifier with huge headroom for big, warm, clean tones – and is ideal for use with single-coil pickups.
“Archetype: Mateus Asato really captures what I set out to do every day on the guitar, which is to take creativity and let it flow easily,” says Asato. “Neural DSP was able to hear it as I hear it – and bring it to everyone through its amazing technology. It’s a beautiful accomplishment!”
Archetype: Mateus Asato is available for €119.
