The Db Audioware Flying Haggis is an amp modeling and multi-effects plug-in that's available for both Mac and PC operating systems and in both VST and Audio Units formats. You can also run it as a stand alone piece of software. It's not available for Pro Tools unless you've got the Fxpansion VST to RTAS wrapper, which I have to run this. Downloading and installing the plug-in from DB Audioware's site was quick and easy and was a process that was without any hiccups whatsoever. The make up of the controls of the software is fairly straight forward, with the amp modeling section on top and a series of stomp box style effects on the bottom. The main parameters that it has include a standard three band EQ, a drive knob, distortion, compression, reverb, and a master volume, as well as a series of buttons for different amp cabinet modeling and for choosing between different mic placements. The effects that it has include chorus, echo, phaser, tremolo, auto wah, and a gate. It's not hard to tell that there is a lot of things you can do with this! It's pretty much designed to be a one stop shop for in the box guitar processing. I haven't seen any manual for this, so I can't speak to it's make up.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I recently got the Db Audioware Flying Haggis plug-in after seeing that they had dropped the price a considerable amount. I first tried out the plug-in to see what it could do, and while I was incredibly impressed with the overall sound, it was cheap enough and versatile enough to snatch it up anyway. I'm running it in Pro Tools LE 8 with the Fxpansion VST to RTAS wrapper, and without this you can't run it in Pro Tools. I'm running everything on a Mac Book Pro that consists of a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run Pro Tools LE with a Digi 002R and I monitor with a set of Adam A7s. I haven't had a need to run more than one of these within a session so far, but since it's got so much in it I would imagine that I wouldn't be able to run many more of them than that. I'm sure I will be finding out as I use the plug-in more and more...

OVERALL OPINION

I like the Db Audioware Flying Haggis plug-in mostly for it's versatility. It's not the best processor for any of the sounds that it is, but since it has virtually every sort of sound you'd want for guitar or otherwise, it's real nice to have around to get a quick sound. The amp modeling is decent, as are the effects, but there's so much that you can do with it that you'll be finding new tones with it every time you use it. The price is really what moved me to buy the plug-in, as it's now incredibly cheap. It's worth trying out the demo and buying it if you like it since it's so cheap, but don't expect the world from it as it can only do so much considering all of the processing it's got.
