Safari Pedals may not be a name that immediately comes to mind when discussing music production plug-ins, but their unique plugin offerings are definitely worth taking a closer look at. In this blog post, we'll delve into what Safari Pedals is all about, their plugin offerings, and what they bring to the table.
First off, let's talk about the company itself. Safari Pedals is a small company that produces plugins that look like guitar pedals, but are actually not. Their website features a big gorilla, which adds to the classic vibe of their artworks. While they do make an actual pedal, their main focus is on their VST plugins.
One of their plugins, the Gorilla Drive, is more like a preamp saturator than an overdrive for guitars. It may not have enough gain to overdrive a guitar sound, but it can definitely add some extra punch to a drum mix or a full mix. The Gorilla Drive features an input, output, auto gain button, bypass button, phase knob, and a tone knob that functions like a tilt EQ. Installation of the plugins is easy, with the plug-ins working immediately after inputting the serial number.
Another unique plugin from Safari Pedals is their Time Machine plugin. It's not a delay pedal, but rather a plugin that allows you to go back in time to different eras of music. The plugin offers four types of filters representing the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Each filter offers a unique sound, with the 70s filter being more mid-rangey and the 80s filter being an exaggerated scooped sound. The Time Machine also features an input, output, auto gain button, bypass button, and a blend knob to mix in the effect.
While Safari Pedals' plugin may not be for everyone, they definitely bring something unique to the table. Their plugins are easy to install and can add some extra character to your mix. The artwork and design of the plugins also add a cool, vintage vibe to your digital workspace.
In conclusion, if you're looking for something different to add to your plugin collection, Safari Pedals may just have what you're looking for. Give their plugins a try and see if they can add some extra flavor to your music and drum production.
