Black Rooster Audio has released Cypress TT-15, a free guitar amp head emulation that is meticulously modeled after a very versatile, yet uniquely sounding low wattage amplifier.

Black Rooster Audio Cypress TT 15

With its no-nonsense approach and only six intuitive controls, the Cypress TT-15 will help to get the job done right away, no matter if you‘re looking for clean through crunchy guitar tones or if you want to achieve biting, distorted lead sounds.

We also included a simple 2×12 cabinet simulation that can be bypassed if you prefer other solutions or if you‘re feeding into an external power amp/cabinet stage.

Cypress TT-15 features

  • Authentic circuit emulation — Real time SPICE type component based circuit simulation approach allows to authentically capture the sound and feel of the analog counterpart in all nuances. Every crucial part of the head, including pre- and power amp tube stages, the tone filter and the output transformer have been faithfully modeled and matched.
  • SSE2 optimized code — DSP operations are pipelined using the SSE2 instruction set. This ensures highest possible performance operation despite very complex computations.
  • Auto-adjusted oversampling for maximum audio transparency — Aliasing artifacts are efficiently attenuated using a low latency linear phase Dolph-Chebyshev poly-phase design. The oversampling is auto-adjusted to your session‘s sample rate to save valuable CPU power while offering the most transparent sound possible.
  • HighDPI / Retina support — Support for high pixel density on Mac OSX and Windows to bring you the most enjoyable user experience on high DPI displays.

Cypress TT-15 is a free download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX).
