A Plug-in that emulates three great guitar amps in a complete studio set-up with speaker cabinets and fully flexible microphone positioning.
Straightforward and simple, Vintage Amp Room Plug-in emulates three great guitar amps in a complete studio set-up with speaker cabinets and fully flexible microphone positioning. It's easy to use for live performances and recordings, as well as for re-amping and last-minute tweaking.
Amp Room has none of the added gadgets or weird-sounding presets sometimes found in simulation software. Focusing on quality and accuracy, it simulates three amps, with sounds that are timeless and authentically raw. The goal is not to give you a pre-produced, ultimate guitar sound, but to provide you with the ultimate tool to create your own. Because after all, only you know exactly what sound you want.
White is based on an all-round great amp that set the industry standard for classic, distorted rock n' roll sounds. The genius is its simplicity. It's stripped down to the bare essentials – all tubes, only one channel, and no reverb or any other built-in effects.
Sound-wise, it goes from mad screaming preamp shred, to warm, speakers-about-to-break power amp distortion. Perfect when you need a characteristically distorted edge and a powerful roar.
Amp Room Brown is based on one of the most versatile amplifiers in music history. It's been used in all kinds of genres, and for all kinds of instruments, thanks to a sound that is clean, crisp and clear, but also warm, thick and punchy.
Brown can produce anything from the clearest country-style sound for steel guitars to a dirty, bluesy guitar noise. It works for both funky rhythms and bassy, mellow chords. It's got a notoriously warm sound with a massive bass and a shimmering treble. Versatility embodied, it can do more or less whatever you want it to.
The "supernormalize" feature (from the beginning the internal name of a slightly magic component of Softube's model building toolbox), makes sure that the output signal from Amp Room always has a reasonable volume. From a user perspective, this means that the Amp Room never clips the signal (unwanted digital distortion). Also, the output volume is normalized, so even with low settings on the Volume knob in Amp Room, the output volume will be within a reasonable level and ready for digital recordings. Compare this to the real amp, which easily can have a dynamic range of 100 dB.
From a technical perspective, this means that the signal path within Amp Room always has the highest dynamic range possible, and you won't lose any bits on the way.
