"This is an homage to a wonderful sounding tube guitar amplifier. As it is discontinued and there exist just a few hundred pieces on this planet, this is the only chance to get the sound dedicated to this masterpiece.
Devoted sampling resulted in this fantastic, natural sounding nebula programs.
This virtual amp doesn't feel and sound like playing just an amp simulation. It feels and sounds like playing through a real amp reacting on your dynamic playing. Close your eyes and you feel the air between the microphones and your cabinet ! The amp was sampled with high quality Sommer Cables, the king of amp recording microphones: The Sennheiser e906 and the full and rich sounding Audio Technica 4050 as a spot microphone. Each of them sounds fantastic on its own. Copy your guitar track, mix and pan the 2 microphones and you'll have a full, wide stereo guitar sound, larger than life !
And last but not least: Working wonderful for Hammond-Organ, Fender Rhodes and any kind of E-Pianos, making flat sounding midi-instruments come alive.

Very nice playing too, by the way - makes it easy to really dig into the difference between the two files.
All the best
Thank you very much ! I really put effort on this one I was influenced by players like Pat Metheny and George Benson and it is really difficult to get that sound out of normal amp simulations. In a solo guitar playing you feel their weaknesses.
The sampling was made in a few days, now is editing time, noise reduction, gain adjustment a.s.o.
Not just the sound is better, it's also more fun to play. I stay on 44.1khz programs, as I don't want people to have latency issues. This should be a real time able program. With mic preamps you can print them. With this amp I want people to have the possibility hear the sound while tracking live.
