Ignite Amps Emissary - Free Guitar Vst Amp Simulator plus sample
Hello everyone and welcome to this week's article! Today we're talking about a really good Free Guitar Amp Simulator Vst, that deserves an article on its own.
Ignite amps is an italian manufacturer which actually builds real amps and stompboxes, both for guitar and bass.
Ignite amps often releases the free vst version of their hardware products, and these plugins are really high quality (click here for the download page), just try the IR-loader NadIr or the bass amp simulator Shb-1.
Today we're focusing on the Emissary plugin, which is considered by some of the mix engineers we've interviewed as the best guitar amp simulator ever made, and that is also used by Bloodtruth's guitar player Stefano as a live guitar amp, going from the computer to a tube power amp, and then to a real cabinet.
The amp is a 2 channel head, with bright and deep switch (only the bright one for the clean channel), which gives more control than the average on the overdrive channel eq by featuring 2 mid controls: Lo Mid and Hi Mid, plus a general Depth and a Presence control.
The sound is very warm, mid-rangey, and it can go from the classic rock/stoner sound to the extreme metal without the real need for an overdrive in front of it.
The sound stays very natural and organic at any setting and is very "mixable", not caricatural as some other guitar amp modelers on the market.
Plus it's free.
You can listen to a sample of its clean and overdriven sound made by me in 5 minutes by Clicking Here.
Give it a try, you won't regret it!
