The ranks of guitarists with signature Neural DSP Archetype plugins is growing, and already includes Gojira's Joe Duplantier, Polyphia's Tim Henson, Cory Wong, Plini and Tosin Abasi. And now, Dream Theater shred wizard John Petrucci has added his name to that expanding list.

Condensing the guitarist's gear into an all-in-one software suite, Archetype: Petrucci is loaded with four amps – Piezo, Clean, Rhythm and Lead – that together aim to deliver “every nuance of John’s tone”, as well as overdrive, phaser, chorus and flanger effects pedal models and two pre effects: a wah and compressor.
