This effect emulates the sound of an amplifier with speakers. There are different amplifiers and speaker models you can combine.

Amp Model

Specifies the amplifier type. The sound character of the overdrive changes with the amplifier. To bypass the amp modeling, select No Amplifier.

Speaker Model

Specifies the speaker model type. Each model colors the sound uniquely. To bypass the speaker modeling, select No Cabinet.


Adjusts the amount of overdrive.


Adjusts the tone color of the low frequencies.


Adjusts the tone color of the mid frequencies.


Adjusts the tone color of the high frequencies.


Adjusts the brightness of the sound.

Mic Type

You can choose between two microphone types. If this control is set to 0 %, a large-diaphragm condenser microphone is used. At 100 %, you get a dynamic microphone. Settings in between allow you to fade between the characteristics of these two microphones.

Microphone Position

Here, you can choose between seven positions to place the microphone. These positions result from two different angles (center and edge) and three different distances from the speaker, as well as an additional center position at an even greater distance from the speaker.

Channel Mode

Determines in which way the two input channels are distorted.

  • L (Left) only distorts the left input channel. The right channel remains clean and unprocessed.

  • R (Right) only distorts the right input channel. The left channel remains clean and unprocessed.

  • L+R (Left + Right) sums the two input channels into a mono signal which is then distorted.

  • Stereo distorts the two input channels independently.


The L and R modes allow you to cascade two VST Amp effects, that is, to use the first one to processes the left channel and the second one to process the right channel at different settings.


Controls the output level of the amplifier.
