Mercuriall Audio has released Ampbox: a next-gen VST/AU/AAX/Standalone platform to host their current* and future products. This is what they have to say about it...
Ampbox is also a major release for Reaxis and U530, which, along with other improvements, got a new poweramp that breathes new life into the trusty preamps.
First in our product line, Ampbox receives native support for Apple M1 chips.
Additionally, U530 modeling technology was updated with the latest Mercuriall Neural Hybrid Engine v1.5 version.
The best part? All existing owners of Euphoria/Reaxis/U530 will get corresponding Ampbox update for free. Using our new, simplified product activation system, updating will be a breeze.
Powered by Mercuriall Neural Hybrid Engine v1.5.
Ampbox is powered by one the most advanced amp modeling engines on Earth. Unlike many other solutions, which rely on wave-shaping, EQ-matching or black box signal capturing to simplify and speed up development, Mercuriall Audio does not cut corners.
Neural Hybrid Engine is built on White Box modeling, where each amp and preamp is recreated in its entirety, component by component, keeping the tone, feel and response of the hardware. Combined with Neural Networks, the result is a living and breathing software that reacts to the amp controls' changes in the most natural way.
Ampbox is a self-sufficient platform for creating perfect guitar tones with just one plugin. Everything you need is 1-2 clicks away. It has a beautiful, clean and simple user interface, which can be immediately understood by a person at any level of plugin usage experience.
Over a dozen free modules.
You will get Ampbox for free with the first purchase of supported* amps or preamps. The platform includes such free modules as gate, overdrive and distortion pedals, EQs, 2D cab section, IR loader, spatial effects, tuner, just to name a few.
Growing amp and preamp list.
The first release of Ampbox will offer three amps/preamps for purchase:
• Euphoria (amp based on Bogner© Ecstasy 101B)
• Reaxis (preamp based on MESA/Boogie® Triaxis™)
• U530 (preamp based on Engl® E530).
Of course, this is just a beginning, as more amps and preamps will be offered in future, all within one simple and powerful platform. Returning customers will be able to take advantage of permanent discounts.
Built for the future.
Ampbox was built with an idea of continuous improvement. With time, the platform will grow to become even more powerful, advanced and feature-rich. Various quality-of-life releases will continuously keep Ampbox fresh and updated.
