"Extremist" is a VST plugin (on Windows system) for guitars. It's main purpose is distorting guitar signal to receive 'extremely heavy sound'. This effect is NOT a tube amplifier simulator, and it is NOT a cabinet simulator, however some methods of altering signal are similar to tube amplification characteristics, but only similar!
The effect works in stereo mode, without any latency. It uses 15-band stereo equalizer. It's prepared to use SSE instruction set for Pentium II or newer processors.
