This is a versatile boutique amp that can reproduce a lot of different tones.

I picked up the iOS version for $9.99 (usually $19.99) to go along with Sound Master, Acoustic Voice, Voice DC 30, and Black Ice.

Insta-buy! Great cleans on channel 1, the famous channel 2 textured hard rock sound with plenty of thick tight gain, and channel 3 for highest gain and Metal. There’s also an assignable Plexi mode which sounds vintage amazing, it’s a low gain Plexi mode, slightly raspy and fuzzy, truly reminiscent of late 60s early 70s tone. All of this makes for an extremely versatile amp that will please everyone, cleans, metal, vintage, modern. This emulation is extremely authentic and faithful to the original hardware. I’m surprised it’s not a Bogner authorized sim.

There a lot of peculiar knobs and voicings in this amp, and a slight learning curve. I’ve attached the manual here and it is excellent, very helpful to know what everything does.

I recommend keeping the Bass knob at or below 12 o’clock. Many of the presets have the Bass knob all the way maxed, and it’s overkill. It adds too much rumble, not just bass. So whether playing presets or tweaking, keep the bass knob reasonable. There’s also an “Excursion A/B” toggle in the “master” section, setting those to “L” also brings a lot of bass, so I recommend setting to those toggles to “T”. Read the manual to fully unlock the breadth of this amp.

I like his channel. Excellent play and non-metal content.

Mercuriall's Euphoria is $50 on sale right now.  It's a beast.  On board effects are excellent, there are tons of presets, it's resizable, switchable Pre and Power amps, and a bunch of other options on the front panel that I can't explain.  It's got a built-in parametric EQ which is a really nice touch, too.  I find the cabinet UI for Nembrini amps to be a bit harsh on the eyes; if you have Mercuriall sims, Euphoria takes the same easy-to-understand approach with mic selection and positioning.  You can also include reverb IRs independent of cab IRs.  Did I mention it includes a wah pedal??  Pete Thorn has videos for both of these sims.

And it sounds awesome for rock, metal, or clean tones.  Just my take.

Nice. I think the most interesting part is at the end (11:40)

Comment from TGP forum thread:

I have 2 Ecstasy heads from the 90s that I toured extensively with.
Mercuriall is much, much closer to my real Bogners. I set up the software amps exactly as I ran the blue channel for live gigs and compared.
Mercuriall Euphoria really feels and sounds almost identical in tone with controls set the same. The Nembrini has way more gain than any Ecstasy blue channel, and is more scooped with fizzier highs and a woolier bass. Nembrini can be adjusted to sound good as well, but if we are comparing software to hardware, Mercuriall nails it down in a 1:1 test using the exact same knob and switch settings as the real amp.
Nembrini at those same settings sounds more like a Mesa than a Bogner.
