BluGuitar Amp1 Iridium Edition
Detta är Metal versionen av BluGuitars älskade Mercury. BluGuitar Iridium (Iridium
är en vit metall med något gulaktig ton i platinafamiljen – Wikipedia) är en
komplett gitarrtopp på 100 watt som använder Nanotube teknik. Den har ett
dynamiskt rör sound, 4 kanaler, noise gate, boost, högtalar simulator m.m.
4 Channels – Three independent, discrete OVERDRIVE
channels deliver rich and tight distortion sounds that can be changed in gain
structure and timbre. Each of these channels offers different attack, response
and dynamics. The CLEAN channel with its massive headroom and treble reserves
gives even mid-heavy humbuckers transparent, sparkling clean sounds.
MODERN: With its extremely high gain reserves, this
channel delivers crystal-clear string separation through a massive low-cut, and
the Custom Control TONE knob lets you dial from a “cut thru the mix” solo sound
to the typical “maximum brutality” mid scoop.
CLASSIC: Due to the hard distortion characteristics
and the specially tuned bass filter, this channel is percussive and
significantly wider and harder in the mid-range than VINTAGE. The mid-range can
be shaped by the Custom Control TONE from “Hot Rodded British High Gain” to
“German wall of sound“
VINTAGE: Tight and mid-emphasized woody sounds that
are transmitted tightly especially using extreme low tunings while delivering
creamy mid- range distortion.
CLEAN: Massive headroom thanks to the 100 watt power
amp and treble reserves, which give even mid-emphasized humbuckers a
transparent, sparkling clean sound. Optimal platform for pedals like shimmer
reverb, modulation or delay.
Iridium Edition features an adjustable gain/boost function that is placed in
front of all four channels like a pedal, as well as a metal-essential,
high-efficiency noise gate with three different levels of sensitivity.
Boost – Use the custom control knob to adjust the
amount of gain. It has a moderate mid hump to give cleaner sounds more
definition, or to give overdriven sounds more gain without turning muddy.
Cranked all the way up, it will sound more like an overdriven preamp or a Tube
Screamer, giving you even richer tones for creamy yet tight overdrive sounds.
– The Noise Gate offers three positions:
METAL: Extremely fast and hard. High gain playing
and staccato riffs become sharper, and palm muted parts clean up with no
OFF: In this position, the noise gate is
SOFT: In this position the Noise Gate is extremely
sensitive and responds to the lowest signals, so the quietest nuances are still
audible without being cut off.
Speaker Simulation – The loudspeaker simulation of the AMP1™
Iridium Edition is analog and is voiced specially for metal sounds. A special
Current Feedback creates an authentic tube amp feel with punch and bite. In
order to realize even more authentic loudspeaker simulations, ”IR”
(impulse responses) are also often used. To do this, the internal (analog)
speaker simulation of the AMP1™ Iridium Edition can be turned off, so you can
use the impulse responses of your favorite cabinet.
