Universal Audio Inc. (UA) has introduced UAFX Guitar Amp Emulators, three new stompboxes which they say emulate the best vintage guitar amps of all time.
Bill Putnam Jr., CEO of Universal Audio, told us, "When it comes to tone, guitarists are as discerning as they come. We spared no expense in our multi-year effort to capture the sound of these amps, and knew we were done when we stopped talking and got lost in their sound."
Here' the details direct from UA...
Built upon powerful dual engine processing and UAD audio modeling expertise, UAFX Guitar Amp Emulators feature stunning sonic authenticity to the original vintage amp.
UAFX Guitar Amp Emulators include:
- Dream '65 Reverb Amplifier - The essential American tube amp used by the Beatles, Muddy Waters, Elvis Costello, and countless others for more than 60 years.
- Ruby '63 Top Boost Amplifier - The iconic UK valve amp that defined the sound of the British Invasion, beloved by Queen, Radiohead, and U2.
- Woodrow '55 Instrument Amplifier - The legendary tweed tube amp that started it all, beloved by Neil Young, Chuck Berry, and The Eagles.
Designed for true tone heads, UAFX Guitar Amp Emulators give discerning guitarists multiple speaker and cabinet pairings, tube reverb and vibrato as found in the original amplifiers, custom boosts and circuit mods, and easy customization and additional features via the UAFX mobile app (iPhone/Android).
UAFX Guitar Amp Emulators allow users to personalize footswitches, save presets, and get the same tones used by pro guitarists including Tim Pierce, Nels Cline, Cory Wong, and more, courtesy of the new UAFX Control mobile app for iPhone and Android.
