Nembrini Audio has added the Hivolt 103 Custom Guitar Amplifier Plugin to its array of audio production software. They tell us that it is based on the 1970's vintage Hiwatt DR103 with original Partridge transformer and point to point wiring. A spokesperson said, "The epitome of clean, lush, classic British tone, this amp was loud, punchy and rich. The ordered harmonics and distinctive tones of this amplifier were prized by many 70's musicians including Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and more recently the Foo Fighters."
Here's more details in the company's own words...
The new plugin offers users a choice of six different guitar cabinets and four microphone emulations. The guitar cabinet simulations are based on the VHT 412S 4 x 12 with Eminence P50E speakers, Mesa Boogie Rectifier 4 x 12 with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, Orange 4 x 12 with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, Marshall 1960A 4 x 12 with Celestion G12M-20W Greenback speakers, Marshall 1960B 4 x 12 with Celestion G12T-75W speakers and the Bogner 2 x 12 Celestion Vintage 30 speakers. The microphone recreations are based on the Shure SM-57 dynamic mic, Royer Labs R-121 ribbon mic, AKG C 414 condenser mic and the vintage Sennheiser MD-421 dynamic mic.
This versatile and intuitive plugin offers guitarists two channel amplifiers with a shared EQ for both, it has four inputs, two for each channel, one normal and one brilliant. The two channels can be linked for extra punch and dynamic control of the EQ. It also includes a built in Impulse Response Loader, Noise Gate and Cleaner circuit and Bypass Mode. Nembrini's Hivolt 103 Custom Guitar Amplifier Plugin is a classy and affordable choice for musicians and producers looking for an easy to use plugin with tonal authenticity.
