The article presents information on the Guitar Combo series of virtual amplifier collection created by Native Instruments. The developers at Native Instruments lusted after an amplifier collection, so they created the Guitar Combo series of virtual amplifiers, which work in stand-alone mode or as plug-ins. The line consists of the Plexi Combo, Twang Combo, and AC Box Combo--available individually or as a triple pack. The Twang and AC Box have reverberations. The Plexi instead has a delay module that produces standard delay effects, but can also do sweet backwards tape sounds.
