A guitar amp plugin like no other. 5 perfectly modeled guitar amps, captured through “recording chains” of 2 world-class studios in LA and Germany.
The Brainworx development team, renowned for their 1:1-emulations of even the most expensive hi-end audio gear, have taken a new aproach on guitar amp plugins. Most amp sims out there model 112 amps and 256 microphones, and then you can tweak them as long as you want and still don´t get the sound they all promise.
That´s over now. We give you a handful of perfectly modeled tube-amps, and the way we have captured COMPLETE recording chains in some of the best equipped studios with the help of very experienced engineers is simply revolutionary. Select your favorite speaker, choose your amp, tweak the gain and EQ settings, and there you go.
World-class guitar sounds, recallable and reliable. If you have ever tried to record the same identical amp in the same studio twice and ended up frustrated because the results just were NOT the same in the end you know what we are talking about.
