Ampire is PreSonus’ State Space modeled guitar amplifier/cab/stompbox plug-in, available in Studio One Native Effects, VST3, AU, and AAX formats for use in your DAW of choice. You get five amplifier models suitable for everything from rock to roots reggae, 16 diverse cabinet emulations, and a pedalboard full of 13 effects, 5 of which are also State Space modeled from classic stompboxes.
The heart of Ampire is a technology known as State Space Modeling: the surgical measuring and digital re-creation of hardware on a per-component level. Each capacitor, every resistor, all the diodes and every nonlinear circuitry element of the complete hardware schematics have had their behavior measured, modeled, and re-created… including even component-specific non-linearities. The result? Virtual amps and stomps that sound like you expect—with none of the shortcomings of vintage hardware, like spotty reliability and cumbersome weight.
Cabinet behavior was re-created using a combination of State Space Modeling and impulse responses, ensuring true-to-life cabinet resonance. Presonus added controls for microphone positioning, blending, and phase.
Ampire’s five amp models include the MCM800 1980s-vintage British high-gain amp; VC30 1970s-vintage British amp with signature tremolo/vibrato; Blackface Twin, a 1965 American amp known for its clean sound and spring reverb; Dual Amplifier, a heavy metal standard for high-gain sounds; and Amp STV, a model of the legendary late 1960s bass beast. In addition, Ampire introduces an updated pedalboard featuring State Space Modeling re-creations of several classic pedals, a precision tuner that is switchable between Standard and Strobe modes, and a choice of user interface options. A separate Pedalboard plug-in with just the pedalboard and its 13 stompbox effects models is included with Ampire.
