Ignite Amps releases Emissary tube amplifier plugin

Ignite Amps has launched Emissary, a custom tube amplifier effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Ignite Amps Emmisary
Front and back

It has been developed to accurately model its real hardware counterpart, built for Ryan Huthnance (The Seer/Gaped/Chrome Bison/Emissary Studios) by Ignite Amps, in 2014.

The Emissary is a no compromise custom amp built for the kill. Featuring a very versatile clean channel that ranges from pristine cleans to slightly overdriven tones and a mean lead channel designed for serious bone-crushing distortions, it offers a very wide tonal palette for the modern metal musician.

Every single component on the signal path of the real analog circuit has been taken into account and modeled in the best possible way to match the original sound, keeping an eye on CPU performance and real-time playability at the same time.

The plug-in GUI has been 3D modeled and rendered by Voger Design, in order to resemble the real amplifier as much as possible.

The Emissary is meant to be used as a virtual guitar amplifier for live playing and jamming, tracking or mixing inside hosts capable of VST or AU Plug-Ins support.

Emissary is available as freeware. The plug-in competes in the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.

Ignite Amps TPA-1

Ignite Amps has released TPA-1, a digital emulation of a class AB tube power amplifier for guitar.

The TPA-1 is a digital emulation of a class AB tube power amplifier for guitar. It has been designed and developed to be paired with any guitar preamp (VST/AU or even hardware).

Its circuit is not based on any particular physical power amplifier, but it has been designed to have enough versatility to range from vintage to modern tones, letting the user be free to shape its dynamic behaviour with ease, without the need to be a tube amplifier tech.

Every single component on the signal path of the analog circuit has been taken into account and modeled in the best possible way to match the original sound as it was meant to be, while keeping an eye on CPU performances and real-time playability at the same time.

The TPA-1 is meant to be used as a guitar tube power amplifier simulator for live playing and jamming, tracking or mixing inside hosts capable of VST or AU Plug-Ins support.

TPA-1 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available as freeware.

Ignite Amps NRR-1

Ignite Amps has updated its free NRR-1 custom 3 channels tube preamp effect plug-in to version 2.0.

NRR-1 is a digital emulation of a three channels tube preamplifier for guitar. It has been developed to accurately model its real harware counterpart, built for Fleshgod Apocalypse guitarist Cristiano Trionfera by Ignite Amps, back in 2009.

The NRR-1 core circuit is mainly based on a famous boutique preamplifier made in ’88, modded to suit Cristiano’s needs in the best possible way. It can deliver tones from jazzy clean, to blues or rock crunch, to modern bonecrushing metal rhythms and leads, with everything in between.

Changes in NRR-1 v2.0

  • Native x64 support for Windows/OSX (VST/AU).
  • New modeling engine for circuit simulation:
    • Improved math models stability and accuracy.
    • Improved dynamic and transient response for triode stages.
    • Improved frequency dependent triode/load interaction.
    • Increased filters complexity and accuracy for interstage circuits and tonestacks.
  • Changed VST ‘UniqueId’.
  • Reworked GUI.
  • Minor bugs fixed.

The NRR-1 plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is a free download.
