Amp Design

Create totally new sounds by designing your custom dream amp.

Users can easily modify amp models by swapping out the tubes, preamp, transformer, tone stacks, cab and mic with simple mouse clicks to create their own custom amps and unique signature sound.

The result is a dynamic depth and range of tones not possible using traditional guitar amps or other static modelers.



Amp Match

Accurately capture the sound of all your favourite tube amps.

Amp Matching utilizes a collection of underlying technologies to analyze and compare your currently selected BIAS amp model and the sound of a target tube amplifier, the corresponding cabinet and the microphone in front of it. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancement needed to make your amp model accurately match the target tube amplifier.
