Amp Room Bundle
This collection includes the Vintage Amp Room with its three models of classic guitar amplifiers, the Metal Amp Room for high gain metal madness, and finally the Bass Amp Room which is a natural sounding model of a seriously cool bass amplifier and three different cabinets.
Vintge Amp Room
Straightforward and simple, Vintage Amp Room emulates three great and classic 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.
The three guitar amplifiers simulated in Vintage Amp Room are timeless classics that have deserved their place in the history of guitar based music. So instead of simulating tons of amps, we set out to get these three done right instead.
The amps are simulated in a true studio environment with fully flexible click-and-drag microphone positioning. So not only did we simulate the sound of guitar amps in a nice studio, we simulated the entire workflow.
Vintage Amp Room has none of the added gadgets or weird-sounding presets sometimes found in amp simulation software. It provides you with the ultimate tool to create your own guitar sound. Because after all, only you know exactly what sound you want.
Metal Amp Room
Metal Amp Room was designed to bring you the most brutal, evil and aggressive guitar sound that is possible to squeeze out of your DAW. It may even contain backward messages. Run it in mono for a tight and focused sound, or let it take up your entire stereo width by the use of two panned microphones.
Metal Amp Room was co-developed with Patrik Jensen (The Haunted) and tailored to his needs. The continuous mic placement from Vintage Amp Room is here as well, but this time with twin mics and adjustable stereo panning. Get a huge stereo sound with complex adjustable phasing effects, a plain old one-mic-right-against-the-cone, or anything in between.
Included is also a fantastic gate, great for palm muting galore. It opens insanely fast - faster than any hardware gate - and its release (how fast it closes after being opened) is program-dependent. This means that fast playing will give you an extremely fast closing gate, while slow playing will yield a slower release.
The cabinets were measured in the In Flames studio (previously known as Studio Fredman) by Tue Madsen (producer of Dark Tranquility, Sick Of It All, Mnemic) and Patrik Jensen. Among the presets, you will find Tue Madsen's own personal favorites.
Bass Amp Room
Bass Amp Room was designed to handle all your bass amp needs, from dirty rock to modern clean. It consists of a model of a bass amplifier, three distinctive speaker cabinets with click-and-drag mics, and a blendable DI section with tone controls and a limiter.
Bass Amp Room has got everything you need to create a unique signature sound in no time. It's well thought out, and the high quality building blocks will help you produce a huge range of sounds. The Bass Amp Room is all about getting a sound you know you can trust, and getting it quickly.
Although it was originally designed as a guitar amp, the 70's amp that has been modeled has proven to be an excellent choice for bass players. A thick and solid preamp distortion without any fizziness lets you crank it up without losing the low end. The power amp has a more traditional power amp distortion (controlled by the Master Volume knob), which at extreme settings will give you all the dirt you can handle. The High/Low switch wasn't a part of the original amp, but was added to give you a cleaner and fatter sound when necessary.
There are three different cabinets in Bass Amp Room. The 8 x 10" is an industry standard for fat and solid bass tones with lots of low end and lots of definition. The 4 x 12" may be a good choice for rock sounds with its focused and hard sound. And lastly, while an open back 1 x 12" may not be the first cabinet choice that springs to mind for bass, this is something that works extremely well in the studio.
Many engineers like to blend in some DI signal from the bass in the mix, and to facilitate this we have added a DI section that does precisely that, and more - we also put in three tone controls and a limiter.
