PreSonus updates Ampire and releases new State Space Modeled plugins in VST, AU, and AAX formats. Including the Ampire State Space Modeling amplifier and effects suite. The company has made its Channel Strip plugin collection and Fat Channel XT available in VST, AU, and AAX format. Also, they released a free VU Meter plugin, and lowered prices on its Fat Channel Collection plugins. These are the first State Space Models ever released in VST, AU, and AAX format; previously, PreSonus has only used this meticulous modelling technology to develop Studio One® Native Effects plugins.

The newly updated Ampire plugin features all-new State Space models of classic amplifiers and pedal effects. State Space Modeling is a mathematical method of transferring each component of an analogue circuit into the digital domain while maintaining the unique sonic characteristics of the original hardware. Ampire offers 5 new State Space-modeled amplifiers, 13 effects pedals, and 16 impulse response-based cabinet models. Plus a user model to load in custom IRs.

PreSonus Updates Ampire

The new amp models include the MCM800 1980s-vintage British high-gain amp; VC30 1970s-vintage British amp with signature tremolo/vibrato; Blackface Twin, a 1965 American amp known for its clean sound and spring reverb; Dual Amplifier, a heavy metal standard for high-gain sounds; and Amp STV, a model of the legendary late 1960s bass beast. In addition, Ampire introduces an updated pedalboard featuring State Space Modeling re-creations of several classic pedals. Also, a precision tuner that is switchable between Standard and Strobe modes, and a choice of user interface options. A separate Pedalboard plugin with just the pedalboard and 13 stompbox effects models is included with Ampire.
