Studio Devil has released Virtual Guitar Amp, a new tube amp modeling VST plug-in for Windows designed to emulate 18 distinct vacuum tube guitar amplifiers.
Studio Devil’s vacuum tube modeling technology uses a dynamic tube emulation algorithm, capturing the distortion curves and dynamic characteristics of vacuum tube circuits. The dynamic response and tone are faithful to those you’d expect from guitar tube amps and it reacts to your playing style just like the real thing.
Virtual Guitar Amp is easily configured to model its wide range of guitar amplifiers through the setting of three selector switches: STYLE, CHANNEL, and BOOST. The amps modeled by Virtual Guitar Amp were selected to cover the broadest range of guitar playing styles, so there’s something in there for everyone. Combined with its GAIN, TONE, and power amp DRIVE controls, Virtual Guitar Amp provides virtually limitless tonal possibilities.
In addition to the ultimate in tube amplifier tone, Studio Devil VGA also delivers two cabinet emulators and a noise gate. Both can be bypassed, giving you the freedom to chain Virtual Guitar Amp with any of your favorite third-party impulse modeling and noise reduction plug-ins.
Studio Devil Virtual Guitar Amp is priced at $79. Freeware and demo versions are available.
