VStomp Amp

VStomp Amp is anew virtual amp VST/AU/AAX plugin and Standalone application for Windows and Mac OS X.

Following the development of Hotone's powerful and versatile XTOMP pedal and based on their proprietary CDCM system, VStomp Amp delivers organic, studio-grade sound quality and the exact character of legendary amplifiers.

Unlike mainstream modeling methods based on the characteristics of a certain "state" of the circuitry, which just "comes close" to the modeled sound, VStomp Amp employs a complex system based on dynamic feature modeling. In this matrix, every single circuit component is alive and performs like its original.

Behind VStomp Amp is Hotone's CDCM (Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling) system. CDCM is built on a complex dynamic variation matrix, able to realistically express every detailed change that occurs during the operational process of actual circuitry. This matrix will adjust its own modeling parameters and even framework based on the instrument input signal range, signal frequency, knob position, the instrument's own impedance, and other variable parameters, all to achieve the closest possible characteristics of actual modeled circuitry.

The VStomp Amp comes with some extra trick features: an impulse response (IR) loader and a noise gate. With the IR loader, you can load your favorite cab "images" for further tone shaping. The noise gate helps you keep your sound pristine, which makes it great for studio production.

Features:

v1.1.0 updates:

* Optimized GUI
* Three new amps added: Rector Dual, Ampage Flip and Voxy Bass
* New Booster, Delay and Reverb effect module added

INTRO
VStomp Amp by Hotone pronounced, "Hot One," is a collection of realistic modeled legendary amp emulations. The range includes: Marshall, Vox, Black Twin, Silver Twin, Mark, Baseman, Mesa Boogie, etc. The software uses the same tech found inside of their XTOMP multi-effect pedal, CDCM (Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling) system. Okay, I have no clue what that is, but I know it sounds great. Under the hood. .. I'm guessing they employed one of the following:

1. Miniature effigies of Jimmy Page et al.
2. Cutting edge algorithms for amps that also manipulate loaded cab IRs.

After investigating, I discovered that CDCM is a special kind of circuit that helps to emulate/replicate all the parameters and tonalities of classic amps and cabs to achieve "the closes possible characteristics" of the actual circuitry. Hey, it sounds great!.

HOW TO USE:
1. Launch
2. Select an amp
3. Select a cab
4. Add delay, reverb, and boost.
5. Play
6. Save preset.

VStomp allows users to combine a wide variety of amps and cabs to create a unique custom sound. It includes countless clean, overdriven, hi-gain, and bass tones. I'm more into a 60s vibe as of late, so I favor the clean tones. I found an good preset demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W3ZRn_luI4. It's good for a reference, but I think most of the examples sound better at home. .. less tinny. To quote Raphael Morgan from a KVR Audio post, "It sounds killer with Recabinet and some good IRs."

PROS
• Attractive, user-friendly interface.
• Fun to use.
• Sounds great.
• Nothing complicated, which = more playing.
• Built-in noise gate.
• Can be used as standalone (Mac OS X).
• Presets adjustable via MIDI controller in vivo.
• Priced right
• Free amp cabs frequently added.
• Enthusiastic developer with excellent communication.

CONS
• Needs more bass amps. Don't be stingy. Show bassists more love!
• Modulation FX
• VStomp is a bit buried in Hotone's website, but you can find it here: https://vstomp.hotoneaudio.com.

SUMMARY
There are countless amp/cab emulations out there. .. some good, some bad, and some are just plain ugly. VStomp is GREAT! In my opinion, VStomp nails the sound of the original hardware counterparts, especially Fender and Marshall. If you're looking for the deepest IR loader, look elsewhere. If you want to play and sound good for under $100, look here! VStomp is a software amp simulator that every guitarist and bassist should consider, whether you play a real or virtual axe. This thing rocks. Try the free demo. .. you have nothing to lose.

Note: If you pull the trigger, I highly recommend adding their Amps and Cabs bundle, which often goes on sale. This will ensure you have "all the real sounds of rock heroes past and present."
