Cabinet Section in Ampire

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.

Today we are going to learn more about the cabinet section of this plugin, how to select different cabinets or load your own impulse responses.

Let’s explore this!

 

  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.

2. Add Ampire plugin to the DI guitar track (audio track):

It is easy to see that by default, Ampire loaded the MCM800 amplifier head with a cabinet.

In this case, the cabinet selected was the 2×12 Blackface cab:

3. Click on the name of the cab to show the list of available options:

The list will show as:

You can scroll down to see all options:

Once again, if you hover the mouse on top of a cab, you can read the description on the left as:

4. Click on the cabinet to select it:

Different cabinets will yield different sounds so you can try all of them until you find the proper tone.

 

5. If you want to load your own Impulse Responses (IR), you can do so by clicking on the “User Cabinet” option:

Once clicked it will show three “Mic” options:

You can press the “+” signs next to each mic to add individual IR’s, up to three of them.

Once loaded, the guitar signal will pass thru your “user cab” and recreate the guitar tone.

 

Go ahead and experiment with these and get that perfect guitar tone you are looking for!

Using Presonus Studio One 5.4 software to produce music would be ideal with one of our professionally designed PCAudioLabs Systems due our high-performance specifications in order to work with any of the Digital Audio Workstations supported.
