This free distortion pedal plugin promises a ‘perfect’ emulation of Boss’s Metal Zone MT-2

Mercuriall Audio loves a free guitar plugin, and its latest, the MT-A, pays homage to a stompbox that will be familiar to metal fans the world over.

It’s an emulation of the Boss Metal Zone MT-2, a ubiquitous distortion pedal that’s adored and derided in equal measure.

Available for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats, you can download the MT-A now from the Mercuriall Audio website.
