Who is MGA For?

Who is MGA For?

MGuitarArchitect was created with guitarists of all styles in mind. Some of the effects are organized by genre, so you can quickly reach for a country-, metal-, or even experimental-style processor. We know that there are so many artists who choose to record guitar or bass using direct inputs rather than amps. This plugin gives you the creative tools needed to sculpt a dry sound into exactly what you want. That doesn’t mean you can’t use it on tracks recorded using amps. MGuitarArchitect has all the effects you’ll need to heighten your mixing process, regardless of how the signal was recorded.

The Library

The Library

There are dozens of amp and cabinet, and loads of stompbox simulators included in MGuitarArchitect, as well as ten studio-style processors and eight utility processors. They are all fully customizable, so you can carefully control the gain, tone, and filtering of your guitar signal, as well as make any necessary changes to each effect’s individual parameters. This means you have an almost infinite amount of options for finding your optimal sounds.

The Chain Section

The Chain Section

MGuitarArchitect’s input interface has three fully-customizable chains with 16 spaces each, as well as a fourth for sidechaining. This means you can run up to 64 effects in order or in parallel across the four different groups. When you click on one of the free spaces, you get the option to choose between guitar, stomps, studio, and utility effects. They are all laid out by category, so you have quick access to whatever sound you want.
Well spotted! MGuitarArchitect contains all MTurboAmp and MCabinet devices. Therefore the users who already own any of the named above can upgrade to MGuitarArchitect at a significantly better price.
FX Interface

There are hundreds of effects to choose from, and they’re all laid out by category and by name. Once you select one, there will be an interactive interface that you can manipulate for the best results. You get full control over all the parameters on each amp, cabinet, stompbox, or any other effect you choose. Each one also comes with varied presets for quick customization. You can even save your own presets for each effect or even each chain.

Studio FX

Unlike the competition, MGuitarArchitect offers you to use many MeldaProduction effect (you own a license for) at any point of your guitar tone chain. Plugins like MTurboEQ, MTurboComp, MTurboDelay, MTurboReverb or MDynamicEQ are sold separately (not included in MGuitarArchitect license), but once you obtain a license, you may use them within MGuitarArchitect, too.

If you feel the need for even more extensions when working with MGuitarArchitect could consider using the third-party Neural Amp Modeller (available as a free amp profiler plug-in from Steven Atkinson) or, closer to home, turning to our MConvolution (included as an effect that uses impulse responses to add amazing reverb and microphone processing to signals); users can choose from countless reverb samples — from plates and rooms to churches and halls, as well as responses from microphones, in the case of the latter.

"A complete plugin with a large number of effects to polish guitar sounds, as well as an infinite number of pedals available. It is also very well categorized to have everything at your fingertips quickly. Without a doubt, the most important thing for me in MGA is the customization power you will have for your guitars!"

"Since its launch, I've been a committed addict of MTurboAmp in conjunction with MCabinet. What a great-sounding combination! But Melda goes even further. MGuitarArchitect is my undeniable first choice when comprehensive ITB string treatments are calling. MGA is easy to use, with a brilliant overview of the entire signal chain and has breathtaking possibilities of routing the heck out of it. What a cool extension to my beloved MTurboAmp. Tweakers and nerds are gonna love this awesome and inspiring toolbox! And not only for gently weeping guitars."

"MGuitaArchitect is the most versatile tone shaping and amp sim plugin I've seen. Anything from classic guitar sounds to new and innovative tones. There are all the stomp boxes you'd expect, as well as some really useful ones that aren't standard. But what makes MGA stand above the rest for me is that you can go in very deep. You can control the detail of the harmonic structure in a way I've not seen anywhere else."

Don't hesitate, and it's definitely worth exploring!"

MGuitarArchitect in reviews

The sound quality is great, typically I find amp sims do clean sounds and high gain sounds very well but struggle with an edge of breakup or subtle overdrive sound, MGuitarArchitect excels at all of these.
