Kuassa has announced the release of Amplifikation One, its new guitar amplifier plug-in.
This "guitar amp on your PC" captures the dynamics and characteristics of "hardware" head amplifiers and cabinets, captured by various types of microphones in multiple configurations. Amplifikation One is not an emulation or modeled after specific amplifier, Kuassa "tried to capture the best aspect of schematic designs, tubes, electronics and computer programming to achieve the supreme tone for your guitar through your personal computer while maintaining the user interface as easy as possible".
Users are able to control every aspect of the software just like real amplifiers including, but not limited to, gain structure, tone, mic position, and distance.
- Straightforward and easy to use user interface.
- 8 head amplifiers, noise gate and 5 distortion modules.
- 5 cabinet models, users are able to use 2 cabs simultaneously.
- 5 microphone types (straight or angled).
- Mic distance and free positioning of mic around the speaker.
- Dedicated input and output volume control.
- Saturation, output limiter and up to high quality 4x maximum oversampling to the amp calculation.
Priced at $49.95, Amplifikation One is available for Windows as a VST effect plug-in. A Mac OS X VST/AU version is "coming soon".
