Voxengo: Boogex

A free full-featured guitar cab sim/convolver plugin.


10 December 2023

Voxengo was founded by Aleksey Vaneev, and became a full-time commercial endeavour in 2002 after the release of its first successful equaliser plugin, CurveEQ. It has since released over 40 high quality, commercial and freeware sample rate converters and plugins, that have been downloaded by millions of users around the globe. Voxengo offers robust and efficient solutions for audio and music production, including streaming, mastering, and surround sound.

Boogex is a free guitar amplifier AudioUnit, AAX, and VST plugin with a variety of sound shaping features, for professional sound and music production applications. With Boogex it is possible to get a heavy distorted sound as well as slight ‘jazzy’ saturation sound. The plugin is also able to apply any speaker cabinet impulse response, and the selection of built-in impulses is also available. Sp, it is a real-time guitar processor with speaker cabinet simulation and stereo convolution processing, and also includes the input gate module, and reverberation module derived from Voxengo OldSkoolVerb reverb plugin. The processing latency is close to zero making it possible to use Boogex for real-time guitar processing.

Boogex produces a nice ‘minimalist’ rock music-geared sound which may get a bit noisy at higher overdrive settings, but higher frequencies can be easily suppressed with its built-in Emphasis EQ. Boogex can be also used as a plain stereo convolution processor when its ‘Amp’ stage is turned off. The convolution module has zero latency and is not CPU-demanding. With the amp modes Boogex currently provides, it is not particularly well-suited for metal music, but can still be used as a cabinet impulse response processor for metal music.

Additional speaker cabinet impulses can be downloaded here.
