The VPRE-562A is a precise emulation of a tube based low wattage amplifier from the early 60s. Originally intended as a PA amplifier but often used as a bass or guitar amplifier by UK bands from that era, the 562A offered mic and turntable inputs and three output taps, including low impedance outputs allowing it to drive speaker cabinets. The 562A circuit comprises an EF86 gain stage, an ECC82 phase splitter and two 6L6 push-pull pentodes driving the output transformer. The tonestack features a passive design that implements two rolling shelf filters controlling the low and high end response.

With its unconventional tone shaping capabilities the VPRE-562A gives you a wide variety of flavors: From subtle vintage coloration or gentle equalization to full-on, gritty distortion. Use it on almost any type of source to make it either blend inor cut through a mix.

Available in VST, VST3, AAX Native, AudioUnits for Mac OS and Windows in 32 and 64-bits.

This plugin does only one thing, but it does so with great gusto. To call it a 'colour box' would be absolutely accurate but strangely under-selling it. It sounds fantastic.

Slightly oily vintage grit WITHOUT, and this is an important rarity, WITHOUT all the treble frequencies smeared or filtered out. A detailed circuit simulation of a hi-quality old pre-amp from the 60s which has a nearly flat frequency response all the way up to 20kHz, but which provides fascinating colour.

In pre-amp mode, when pushed, there is just a hint of peppery bitterness from (i THINK) the crossover distortion.

In high-gain PA mode, the output is routed back to attenuate the push-pull stage, removing the "pepper," thundering up the sound and—when pushed—adding some great, really rattly overdrive, and making basses chug without making them at all muddy.

currently, however, my primary use for it is a bit niche. there are two(!) modeled inputs, a buffered input for microphones and a secondary aux input which was originally for turntables. i'm using the aux-in to punch up the fake record scratches i make with cableguys time-shaper. it makes them sizzle and jump and sound a lot more 'alive' than they do coming straight out of cable-guys itself.
