Announcing AmpCraft

by Shane McFee January 14, 2021

Kazrog is proud to announce its forthcoming amp modeling plugin line, AmpCraft. Each AmpCraft plugin will emulate a specific guitar or bass amp, along with a collection of pedals, cabinets, and mics. As with all Kazrog plugins, each plugin will support Mac and Windows operating systems, and VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats. Standalone app versions will also be provided.

First to be released in the series will be AmpCraft - 1992, an emulation of one of the most celebrated high gain amps of all time. While this release is focused on the modern high gain player, subsequent AmpCraft plugins will emulate a wide range of amps spanning all eras and styles of electric guitar - including some rare and vintage amps that have never been emulated before.

While the amp modeling space is increasingly crowded, AmpCraft has several core priorities that set it apart from other modelers:

Touch sensitive dynamics - AmpCraft models are highly detailed, and respond to the pick attack and dynamic nuance of the player.

Versatile tone controls - All controls of each real-world amplifier are emulated.

Detailed pedal emulations - Sculpt your tone with a variety of modern and vintage overdrives.

Extensive cabinet IR library - Each AmpCraft plugin will include an IR library with a wide range of cabinets and mics represented, for more tonal variation on tap than is typically found included with an amp modeling plugin.

Additionally, AmpCraft offers:

Noise gate

Adjustable input and output level adjustment

Preset A/B functionality

Up to 32x oversampling

AmpCraft builds upon Kazrog's core legacy in guitar software products, which began with the critically acclaimed Thermionik and Recabinet.

AmpCraft - 1992 is slated for a Q1 2021 release. Subsequent AmpCraft plugins will follow throughout 2021 and beyond. Specific pricing and more details will be announced soon, but rest assured, special upgrade pricing for Thermionik and Recabinet owners will be honored.

My main concern with those new amp simulations is that they're becoming very resource intensive for an alleged improvement in sound quality that I'm yet to notice. And yes. That's a 5150/6505. The 6505+ has separate EQ, Resonance and Presence controls for the Clean/Crunch channel.

I felt a bit let down by Kazrog after I bought into their amp plugins and what was supposed to be 3 years or so of upgrades that didn’t really pan out as initially sold and then the plugins were discontinued.

I'd say that Kuassa has the most inspiring amp pack so far. Not IK, not Overloud, NI, STL, Positive Grid, JST others, which seem to be solely focused on making their plugins look good.
