Default 1995 gear suck emulation

I finally completed my project of installing a broke 1995 band in my DAW. The jam below is using:

- SoftAmp FM25 (Fender Frontman 25R amp)
- Killer Z from POD farm (Boss Metal Zone)
- Plastique synth (Casio HT700 keyboard)
- FreeAlpha (supposed to be Roland Alpha Juno 2, I know they were cheap in the 90s)
- Bass overdrive direct (Sansamp BDDI clone from POD farm)
- Karoryfer's Big Rusty Drums (sampled beat up 1980s Polish drumkit)

https://soundcloud.com/zeekat/ida-random

Sounds less horrible than expected, I suspect it's the usage of the same effects as usual. Big Rusty Drums is pretty great, detailed virtual instrument made off something that a poor punk band in 1985 Poland might've used. Using the "Bass driver" might be an anachronism, but I couldn't make dry bass track sound passable in context.

The BDDI was released in 1994 apparently, so you're okay.

You were under pressure but you made it.
No SQ80 though?
Slavic resilience!

My hypotetical '95 band is using a bootleg DIY copy for sure

Wasnt sure how was the availability of those for broke virtual garage ensembles here (google is terribly skint on synth pricing history), so settled on Juno.

If broke bands in 1995 Poland sounded this good, I am impressed. Perhaps not too surprising as Warsaw exceeded my expectations when I visited it a few years after that.

I like it - it does have that weird, "older" quality about it, but it's a cool, odd groove, guitar sounds great.

Either someone did horribly inaccurate job writing a shitty transistor amp emulation, or they didn't sound as bad as everyone remember. I think metal zone is already somewhat redeemed, especially since the discovery it sounds good used as a preamp.
