Kazrog has announced the release of the first audio plugin in a line of new generation amp modeling plugins.

AmpCraft 1992 aims to deliver the world’s most accurate emulation of a legendary high gain tube amplifier used on countless albums and tours.

The plugin includes 4 overdrive pedal emulations, a noise gate, as well as a dual-channel IR loader with EQ and speaker dynamics emulation, with a selection of critically acclaimed Recabinet impulse responses.

AmpCraft 1992 features

  • Highly accurate, touch sensitive emulation of the famous American “block letter” high gain tube amplifier, known for its crushing lead channel.
  • Higher-headroom clean/crunch channel than the hardware – enjoy sparkling true clean and mid-gain tones with no fuss, for versatile use across many musical genres outside of hard rock and metal.
  • 4 overdrive pedals:
    • 808 – Based on the latest, limited boutique Japanese “808” pedal with handpicked vintage ICs, this is a smooth overdrive that sculpts attack beautifully all the way from blues to metal.
    • 66 – Based on the modern boutique EQ/boost pedal made famous by one of the most influential Swedish metal bands.
    • Stockholm – Based on the legendary Japanese-built pedal known for its buzzsaw distortion that became a staple in the early Swedish deathmetal scene.
    • Djrive – Based on the modern boutique overdrive pedal that has become an industry standard tool of the modern prog metal scene, this model has selectable voicings that make it useful in a variety of tunings for precise adjustment of picking attack response.
  • Noise gate – the G8 pedal model is based on a popular single-knob noise gate pedal that has been fine tuned for the needs of the modern metal player.
  • 2 channel Cabinet IR loader with the following features:
    • 4 included Cabinet IR packs from the Recabinet – Remastered collection, with 8 mic models on each cabinet.

    • 4 band EQ.
    • Speaker dynamics control.
    • Stereo Panning (when used in a stereo instance).
    • Adjustable short delay (useful when mixing IRs from different makers, to account for phase discrepancies).
