Spiritbox Guitarist Mike Stringer Teams Up With MixWave New Signature Plug-In
Acclaimed guitarist Mike Stringer of chart-topping metal band Spiritbox has collaborated with MixWave for the release of a new signature guitar plug-in - MixWave: Spiritbox – Mike Stringer. This powerful plugin gives users access to the highly sought-after guitar tones and effects that Stringer has meticulously crafted over his career.
Developed hand-in-hand with Stringer himself, MixWave: Spiritbox – Mike Stringer encapsulates the full range of the guitarist’s versatile sound palette – from crystalline, ambient cleans to face-melting, ultra-heavy distorted rhythms and leads. The plugin authentically recreates three intricately modelled guitar amplifiers personally dialled in by Stringer to capture every nuance of his tone.
The “Clean” channel emulates Stringer’s go-to tube amp for pristine, edge-of-breakup cleans with immaculate articulation. The “Rhythm” channel delivers the massively distorted yet tight modern metal tones that Spiritbox built their reputation on. And the “Lead” channel provides soaring, sustain-drenched leads and harmonies.
In addition to the amps, MixWave: Spiritbox – Mike Stringer includes Stringer’s complete effects signal chain, from the guitar straight into the interface. Chorus, delay, reverb - this plugin covers all the textural effects that give Stringer’s playing its atmospheric, multi-dimensional quality. Elaborating on the news of this exciting new signature collaboration, Stringer shares
“I am very proud to announce my brand new plugin in collaboration with MixWave. Introducing MixWave: Spiritbox - Mike Stringer. We’ve been working on this for almost two years now, and I can honestly say it’s the most fun and inspiring plug-in I’ve ever used. It caters to every sound I’d want out of a plug-in, and I am finding myself having endless creativity while using it. The wide variety of tones, effects, and possibility this plugin gives you is really something special, and I can’t wait for you to try it out yourself.”
MixWave founder and producer, Taylor Larson adds
