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.

Devoloop releases DynaRage for Reason

Devoloop has released DynaRage, a tube compressor Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Devoloop DynaRage

DynaRage is our state-of-the-art Dynamics Compression+Tube Distortion module, made exclusively for Reason.

We think that just releasing another Compressor, when there is a chaos of many other Compressors all around here, would have been a shame and a loss of time. So we coded a flawless algorithm, implemented as many controls as a today producer/sound engineer needs, and added a Tube Distortion non-linear emulation algorithm, with a Tube Valve glowing according to the amount of distortion applied to the sound. Pack this with 2 accurate and vintage-ish VU-Meter, and you are done.

DynaRage features

  • Sensitivity for Sidechain Detector.
  • Fully Adjustable Attack and Release.
  • Compression Ratio between 1:1 and 20:1 (fixed to infinite:1 when in Limit Mode).
  • Soft/Hard Knee selector.
  • Compressor/Limiter mode.
  • Sidechain Input (with Key Listen option).
  • Tube Distortion real linear and non-linear processing (with Tube glowing).
  • Left and Right Channels Gain Reduction Vintage VU-Meters.
  • Gain Reduction CV Output.
  • Low CPU Mode.

DynaRage is available for purchase for the introductory price of $29 USD/25 EUR until May 16th, 2014.
