YOUR (B)ASS DESERVES THE BEST
Crafting a bass sound that sits great in a mix is an art. STD offers a complex recording chain based on Jens Bogren's favourite amp, using state-of-the-art algorithms to get you THAT sound in seconds. You gotta try it to believe it!
Have your own IRs? Use the cab-off switch and apply your preferred cab sound with the lush tone of an American Classic head.
BassKnob's design is pretty much as intuitive as it gets. Drop it into your DAW or crack open the standalone app, pick the Clean or Dirty channel, squeeze the knob til' you smile, and get to it.
Record your ideas
When inspiration strikes, every second counts before that golden riff is gone forever.
With Ampknob, you can capture your ideas quickly and easily without even starting a DAW. The standalone version of Ampknob includes a built-in recording functionality that makes it effortless to always stay creative.
A scratch book has never been this inspiring!
STAY IN TIME, STAY IN TUNE
The standalone version of Ampknob now comes with a built-in metronome for you to stay sharp at your guitar playing skills.
Change meter, accent, or set automatic speed increments so you can focus on practicing without even taking your hands off the guitar.
The excellent built-in tuner means you're always ready to jam!
The perfect tone
The perfect speaker cabinet, microphones, and recording chain has been expertly chosen and dialed in by producer Jens Bogren to capture the tone with outstanding detail.
If you feel like experimenting, you can disable the cab or even load your favorite impulse response right from the plugin.
The future of speaker modeling
Our IRDX (Impulse Response Dynamix) technology breathes life into the guitar sound by adding dynamic and true-to-life speaker behavior to static impulse responses.
IRDX technology, developed by producer Jens Bogren, uses advanced machine learning methods to reconstruct the difference between a real cab and an impulse response.
The end result is a guitar amp sim that reacts like a real amp, easily fits in a mix without sounding stale, and feels great when playing through.
Impulse Responses are excellent at capturing the tonality and resonance of a guitar cabinet, but by nature they are only a static snapshot in time.
By itself, an impulse response has the tonal characteristics of a real cab but without dynamics, it creates a lifeless, fatiguing sound.
Real-life guitar speakers react dynamically to the input from the amplifier. They move air, compress, and break up depending on how hard they are being pushed by the amp.
