Looking good ! And rather fairly priced too (won't comment on the tuner that comes at $19 if you don't buy the amps, though).

I personally would have preferred to have Fender going through the UAD mill, but I suppose the former licensing to IK forbids that. Oh well.

$125 an amp is fairly priced? ($150 if you buy them separately) Not compared to every other sim out there.

I get the impression the comment was relative to other UAD sims. Studer A800 $350...

I don't care if it sounds amazing or not, just having some decent sounds to cut demo guitars through Apollo with no latency is amazing. The other amp sim they put out was extremely limited.

well, exactly.

I reckon that if it really delivers, $150 for an amp+cabs+mikes setup you can duplicate in as many instances as your card will allow ? That's expensive ? Good God.

The price for the bundle is better than I thought it would be! If I end up liking it when I try it out tonight then I'm buying it for sure!

the real benefit I should think is for Apollo users - because presumably they can play live at very low latency? What sort of figures do they get on a typical system?

Amp sounds great , Always wanted to get an ENGL , so this may do the trick instead. And this would keep the load off of my CPU .

If the latency is anything like the softube amps, it will be close to none. Certainly not noticeable. I cant wait to try it!

I know it probably doesn't/shouldn't matter as you won't need to use more than 1 or 2 but I was a little surprised to see on the UAD Instance chart that the bx_tuner uses almost 15% of a DSP chip... nearly 3 times the SHMC

You don't understand. It tunes really, really, really well.

Lol.

EDIT: If the demos are any indication, it sounds really good...

Exactly. Let em see what kind of sound they get buying an amp and a mic for less than 150.

Damn Dirk you've been busy lately!! lol

Anybody that's used this yet... is it possible to get extremely low latency while tracking if you're not using an Apollo? Or do these have the same latency limitations as the rest of the UA line. I'd think that if these are marketed as "tracking" plugs, as they seem to be, then the latency should be minimal for all users regardless of interface.

If you can track through these without using an apollo and have minimal latency, then I REALLY CAN'T WAIT for some pre emulations.

If the apollo is the missing link, I still don't know if I'm sold enough to give up my Apogee conversion that I know so well.

Won't have time to demo with live guitars for a little while, so reports back on latency with/without apollo would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

This style of amp isn't my cup of tea. that aside the demo sounds fantastic. Wow, I have played many amp sims and none sound convincing to me. The demo video sounded very good/convincing and I will be checking this out for sure. Dirk seems to be on fire with his contributions to UAD so far. Dirk please model a Vox AC30 and call it something off brand will ya? eh..

With input echo in my DAW (Sonar X2) and the UAD Live Track mode turned on I can get it low enough on my system to track without it sounding too weird or affecting my performance. I have an RME HDSP AiO soundcard (buffer size of 64 = 1.5m/sec at 44000Hz) with a Ross Martin Audio PCM1794A ADC as the master clock via AES.

Very impressed! By far, leaps and bounds above everything else I've heard/tried.

Dirk, you should keep on going with the boutique amp designers. How about some Fuchs or Matchless models next?

I'm getting 1.5ms with a 256 sample buffer in Live Mode; 7.3ms without.

Definitely the most realistic amp plugin I've ever heard!

Agreed. Very impressed. I'm just never looking for high gain sounds. Since many of the classic names are spoken for in one emulation attempt or another, I'd love to see BW work out emulations of Bad Cat, Morgan, Two Rock, or the like.

Personally I wasn't too impressed with what I heard in those demos but maybe I just don't like the tones they were going for. Definitely wouldn't say this amp sim is better than other ITB ampsims such as Amplitube or Pod Farm. But you can't ever have to many ampsims and it's good to see more coming to UAD.


A Kemper Profiling Amp plugin on the UAD platform would be a dream come true. Access (Kemper's other company) put out a a Virus for Powercore so it's not totally out of the realm of possibility.
