GearWire Review: Image Line Hardcore

A product from

In the world of NSFW software modeling effects, Image Line Software adds Hardcore, their new collection of virtual guitar stompbox effects. Image Line Hardcore, which is available for both Mac and PC, unites ten popular guitar effects, each with its own unique flavor.

You know that a library called "Hardcore" is legit when its developer is named Maxx Claster. The extra "X" is for how brutal he is on a scale of one to ten in roman numerals. He offered his take:

"When I started Hardcore the idea was to fill the 'distortion' guitar plugin gap in the Image Line FX suite, but it turned into a much bigger and exciting project"

Hardcore allows you to use any five of the available ten stombox simulations simultaneously in any configuration. The output is then directed through an eight-band graphic EQ and a cabinet simulator. Here are your tools:

  • Distortion
  • Chorus
  • Flanger
  • Phaser
  • Reverb
  • Delay
  • Noise Gate
  • Equalizer
  • Compression
  • Modulator
