ampLion features ultra-precise simulation of 9 guitar preamps, 7 power amps, 12 speakers, 8 microphones and 30 effects deliver extra wide variety of unique guitar sounds. AmpLion turns your computer into an ultimate guitar stack. Use it in standalone mode for playing live, learning, and rehearsing, or as a plug-in module to enhance your guitar tracks.
Compose & Practice
ampLion's advanced track player lets you play along with your favourite artists and learn their songs. Speed control alows you to slow down, if you can`t make it, or even speed up. The built in recorder will keep every new riff safe. Record dry guitar sound, processed or even mix with the track player.
Record & Mix
ampLion can be used as a plug-in module for host applications. That makes recording guitar so easy. Forget about miking your (hardware) amp. Just record clean guitar signal and decide what sound suits your record best while mixing.
There's no need to move around heavy guitar stacks for every show. Simply take your laptop with ampLion installed and use it instead. AmpLion can be easily controlled by any MIDI controller. In addition, Live mode offers a simplified view of presets for live playing.
In our lab, we unscrewed every last screw from every modeled amp and measured every part of it. Therefore you cannot tell the difference between our software simulation and the real world hardware amps. But you can also freely combine different preamps and power amps.
