Daly City, CA (March 10, 2005)–Digidesign and Line 6 have unveiled version 3.0 update to Amp Farm, the guitar amp-modeling effects plug-in. Amp Farm 3.0 provides a new level of realism and improved sonic power and flexibility thanks to all new cabinet models and newly included mic models.
Amp Farm has been used on thousands of Pro Tools projects of all shapes and sizes, including platinum albums, mega-budget film soundtracks and television productions. While still featuring all of the same amplifier and cabinet models found in previous versions of Amp Farm, Amp Farm 3.0 adds a wide variety of new cabinet models and allows users to select one of four microphone setups to use with the cabinet they choose.
Features include more than a dozen faithful recreations of a collection of guitar combos and heads; simple amp-style control and automation of all parameters; mix and match any amplifier and cabinet models for a wide variety of sounds; selectable microphone models capture classic cabinet miking techniques; process live guitar inputs or tweak pre-recorded tracks right up to the final mix.
Amp Farm 3.0 works on live input tracks as well as pre-recorded Pro Tools tracks. This allows mixers to make adjustments to the plug-in’s parameters to right up until the final mix, providing flexibility and creative freedom when mixing. In addition to guitar recording, producers and sound designers have also used Amp Farm to process non-guitar sources, punching up–or munching up–the sound of drums, keyboards, vocals, sound design sources and any audio that can benefit from tube warmth, distortion or speaker cabinet life.
