Ampire Plugin Overview

Ampire is the ultimate guitar tone and gear emulation solution included in Studio One as one of their proprietary plugins.

This plugin is capable of emulating the amplifier, cabinet, microphones, pedals and even the tuner you would have as part of your guitar rig.

Anything from pristine clean to heavy distorted tones can be obtained with this tool.

Let’s explore its modules.


  1. Open or create a new Studio One Song

For the purpose of this tutorial we have a Song that contains a single audio track with an electric guitar DI signal recorded to it.

Ampire is designed to be added as a plugin (insert) on tracks that only contain DI signals.

These modules are currently not show.


3. Click on the following button:
