MAGIX Announces Vandal Virtual Guitar Amp

Share Article

The virtual amp Vandal is available for Mac and PC

The plug-in, available as a VST and an AU, works on the basis of physical modeling. This virtual calculation dynamically conveys user's personal playing style, making it clearly audible in the final result. Real custom amp technology lets musicians forget that they're using a software application. Virtual effects devices provide realistic and dynamic sound results. "With Vandal, we've created a one-to-one simulation of a tube guitar amplifier. Being a bass player myself, I know how important it is to have fun playing. What I enjoy most is being able to hear if I'm plucking the strings hard or gently strumming them. At the same time, I think it's really important that my personal style is expressed just the way I play and feel it," says Sascha Eversmeier, Vandal developer.

Handling is similar to that of analog amplifiers

Guitar and bass players won't have problems getting started because working with Vandal is similar to using analog devices. A clear workflow ensures guitar players will find the right effects settings without stumbling over millions of virtual cables. Vandal's low CPU load allows for complex arrangements à la "Wall of Sound". The package also includes the digital audio workstation Samplitude 11 Silver.

Summary: MAGIX presents the virtual amp Vandal. Thanks to physical modeling, this virtual tube amplifier manages to convey individual playing style. The plug-in Vandal for Mac and PC will be available starting 24 March, 2010.
