Apart from the smooth positioning of microphones, we added an option to mix sound of two mics. This Russian software company already has quite a solid reputation for making virtual amplifiers, so will new one be able to ignite your recordings? Anthem Publishing respects your privacy and will never pass on your email address to other companies. Modeling Spark is the realization of all of our latest achievements in the field of real-time electric circuits. Modeling Spark is the realization of all our latest achievements in the field of real-time electric circuits modeling. All my other amp simulator software is going to feel neglected. All you need is just your interface and your computer and Mercurial can turn it into a tube amp. The simulation strikes with the sound realism and its natural dynamics.
It was the top spec model when I got it. When I do work at other studios I feel handicapped when I don't have my Mercuriall Audio amps available to me. The plugins just felt and played better than anything else I've ever tried. There is a Noise Gate at the input, as well as a number of pedals: there are currently four overdrives, implemented with our proprietary technology of the electric chain modeling. The Marshall sound has been an integral part of rock music ever since Pete Townshend and John Entwistle of The Who asked Jim Marshall to build bigger and louder amps. We pay a lot of attention to the design, that passes a lot of iterations of adjustments and improvements, offering you a very simple and functional solution. Mesa is a brand that is closely associated with rock and metal tones, so it is perhaps not surprising that this is where ReAxis excels, and that the presets are dominated by these styles.
Spark is by far one of my favorite amp simulators that I've ever used. In this case it helps to add more warmth to fully create that vintage tone. Just like their U530 plugin, I really appreciate how much time and attention Mercuriall pays to both the sound and feel of their products. I'm using Logic Pro X. As far as I can tell, this is linked to the record and input monitoring buttons. The rather novel for a guitar amp digital parameter controls dominate the central section, and Mode buttons on the right allow you to switch between the eight different preamp models.
Its sounds to me like your computer isn't able to keep up. Preamp modelling aside, the modest effects selection is pretty well done, and the microphone modelling options give you plenty of additional scope to dial in the subtleties of your tone. There is a Noise Gate at the input, as well as a number of pedals: there are currently four overdrives, implemented with our proprietary technology of the electric chain modeling. After doing a few more runs through the amp, I added some muff and fuzz pedal plugins to the signal chain. The release of Spark is yet another milestone and really makes you feel that wall of roaring Marshalls behind you. Apart from the smooth positioning of microphones, we added an option to mix sound of two mics.
Couldn't recommend trying Mercuriall products enough! Low seems to make things marginally less sever, perhaps? You need that string noise, pop and twang. We have considerably improved the cabinet section. All main actions require just a single click. This mode is useful for processing stereo signals. This is as good and natural sounding as my best Triaxis.
This mode is useful for processing stereo signals. Eric Meyer - The Noiz Faktory studio When I opened up the U530 I was immediately blown away by the sound that I got without any tweaking. Can't remember the processor off the top of my head, but my iMac is only three years old. I also get the same problem, under the same conditions, when just playing back the recorded tracks. As far as I can tell, under the current scenario, recording places the most stress on the system and that shows at least 60% system idle. This would be compatible with both 32 bit and 64 bit windows.
We have considerably improved the cabinet section. I am very glad that their highest quality software allows me to get an instant result and save time, which is extremely important for the creative process. This is complete offline installer and standalone setup for Mercuriall Spark v1. It adds a big shot of mids that I later on harnessed into a nice djent tone. This allows you to find pretty much any desired sound. I immediately knew, and felt in my hands, that this software was exactly what I was looking for: responsive, highly configurable and, like my vintage Marshalls, authentic! ReAxis is a detailed, component-level, recreation of the classic Mesa TriAxis, a rackmounted preamp launched in the early 1990s and boasting some very high-profile users including John Petrucci and James Hetfield.
There are four cabs and three microphones at your disposal. Mercuriall has now modeled four legendary Marshall amplifiers and put them in their new Spark plugin. Ronnie Björnström - Aeon, Cut Up, Sorcerer as a Sound Engineer The Spark is everything i need for that classic British Hi-Gain guitar tone! See how it works below. We pay a lot of attention to the design, that passes a lot of iterations of adjustments and improvements, offering you a very simple and functional solution. They have already become a staple in my daily work. This is the first plug-in I've used that feels, sounds and reacts like my real amps.
Each microphone can be individually positioned at the cap, the edge, and anywhere in between and can be placed anywhere from 0 to 7 feet from the speaker. The 800 sounds simply awesome. The Effects For extreme high-gain settings, you may need to use the noise gate, which has a Hysteresis control to balance the open and closed threshold. This mode is useful for processing stereo signals. The Audiority Big Goat and Blue Fuzz were the two best of the bunch I tried. Modeling Spark is the realization of all our latest achievements in the field of real-time electric circuits modeling. The originals are still sought-after items, with a second-hand unit likely to cost you somewhere north of £800.
Maybe a Sovtek Big Muff? For example, their Spark plug-in emulates four very specific flavours of Marshall, while the Tube Amp U530 reviewed by Sam Inglis in the November 2016 issue pays homage to the rackmounted Engl E530 preamp which is very much a tool for seven-string, down-tuned metal players. I have only used the 800 and Lead 68 outside of the review and I have found most of my spark usage has been for leads and solos. I love both channels of this amp. The amps included in this four amp plugin can really do just about anything. ReAxis ships with a modest selection of presets but there are also plenty of examples to be found online based upon the original hardware.
