Kuassa Amplifikation One by Tommy Zai
Amplifikation One by Kuassa is a small, but powerful first-rate custom amp sim software package that is capable of a wide range of tones. It is not designed to be a modeled version of any one particular amp combo, but shines as a customizable array of cool features that users can configure into their own distinct sound. After a short time of experimenting, I had no problem getting the tones I was after — from inspiring to realization was a snap. It's surprisingly versatile considering the finite number of combinations. I especially like the Black Amp with a Normal Tube, the Vintage British 4/12, and either of the Ribbon Mics. Unlike some audio software on the market, this is not bloated and filled with mediocre effects. Yet, it does come with a built in noise gate, distortion, and limiter, which are quite handy. The Quad Impulse Loading adds a great deal of flexibility — nice routing options. There are many things I dig about this software and not much to complain about.
• Painless to purchase, download, and authorize.
• Familiar, attractive, user-friendly interface.
• Excellent cabs and mics.
• Great tones.
• CPU friendly.
• Fantastic value.
• Enthusiastic developer.
• Very usable presets, but I wish there were more of them!
• As it further develops, I hope to see more cabs and mics added.
• I also hope the architecture remains simple, yet powerful, which is a welcome combination.
Amplifikation One is a streamlined powerhouse! My advice . . . don't let the affordable price tag fool you into thinking this custom amp sim is only for hobbyists. I highly recommends this fine audio software to anyone who slings a guitar, whether it be real or virtual. It’s a small package that is capable of producing many tones, making it attractive to any guitarist, playing any genre of music. This is a tool that helps breathe life into tracks without sucking your wallet dry. Tommy Zai gives Amplifikation One two flexible picks up! Thank you, Kuassa!!!
