Sparkling Cleans To Rich Fat Overdrive Tones
March 14th 2022 PAVIA, ITALY: Nembrini Audio, expert developers of software for musicians, continues to expand its growing catalogue with the addition of the Faceman 2-Channel Head Guitar Amplifier plugin. It is based on the 1967 vintage Blackface Fender Bassman* played through the rare 1×15 cabinet loaded with JBL* D130F speakers. To hear the new plugin in listen here and watch the video trailer here.
Often considered one of the holy grails of tone, the powerful Blackface Fender Bassman* has a reputation for simple, pure, raw sound. The sonically awesome JBL* D130F speakers are known for their low, moderate tones, full of sparkling, harmonically rich tones which, when the volume is cranked up, become full of thick, creamy, sweet distortions. Together they create a distinctive sound, originally designed for the bass market and quickly adopted by guitar players for their amazing breakup and beefy bottom end.
Thanks to the versatility of the digital world, we have extended the possibility of the original hardware with new features to customize your tone: The new plugin offers users a choice of six carefully selected guitar cabinets based on the VHT* 412S 4 x 12 with Eminence* P50E speakers, Fender* 1 x 15 with JBL* speaker, Orange* 4 x 12 with Celestion* Vintage 30 speakers, Marshall* 1960A 4 x 12 with Celestion* G12M-20W Greenback speakers, Fender* Tweed Bassman with 4 x 10 Jensen* P10Qs speakers, and the Bogner 2 x 12 with Celestion* Vintage 30 speakers.
In addition there is a choice of four of the best microphone emulations based on the Shure* SM-57 dynamic mic, Royer Labs* R-121 ribbon mic, AKG* C 414 condenser mic and the vintage Sennheiser* MD-421 dynamic mic with selectable mic positions, volume and pan controls. The plugins Mixer section with Solos, Mutes, Pans and Faders, allows two microphones to be blended.
The Faceman 2-Channel Head Guitar Amplifier plugin also includes the Nembrini Impulse Loader allowing users to load and blend up to three, third party impulses. Plus the Noise Gate section and Cleaner circuit help reduce rumbling and harshness and the Bypass Mode allows users to completely by pass the whole cabinet / recording chain and Impulse Loader to use their favourite impulse loader or a real amplifier and speaker system.
