PreSonus Ampire

USD $59.95 (UK/EU orders incur VAT)

Ampire is a guitar rig simulator that leverages State Space Modelling for uncannily realistic re-creations of classic (expensive and heavy) guitar amplifiers, cabinets and pedals.

SKU: 1170-123 Categories: , ,



State Space Modelling is the surgical measuring and digital re-creation of analog hardware on a per-component level. Each capacitor, every resistor, all the diodes, and every circuitry element of the complete hardware schematics have their behaviour measured, modelled, and re-created… including even component-specific non-linearities. The result? Wonderfully perfect virtual models of wonderfully imperfect audio hardware. No transformer unturned, no valve left behind.

For the speaker cabinet emulations, we relied heavily on impulse responses (acoustic measurements of real-world cabinet behaviour) and microphone modelling to emulate the recording performance of the 16 classic speaker cabinets found in Ampire.

Lastly, the same nerdy State-Space Modelling technology that made our amp modelling possible also drives five of the thirteen stompboxes included in the Ampire Pedalboard. And for non-guitarists looking to use stompboxes to warp their vocals, drum machines, keyboards, kazoos, or any other audio source, the Pedalboard is also available as a stand-alone plug-in.
