Guitar Amp Modeling: The Future Of Amplification
Guitar amp modeling means you can have the finest of all worlds. You are
freed from the limitations of having to manage with a specific ampâ€™s tonal
range. In most cases a modeling amp will have onboard a vast library of effects.
They have the ability to deliver wall shaking sounds or that of a small tweed
and there is no need for several outboard stomp boxes. In the 60â€™s and 70â€™s in
order to produce chorusing, flanging, distortion or wah-wah sounds, this is what
was required. Today, because of modeling, all these effects including
multi-effects such as delay plus reverb and chorus, these effects are remarkably
What are modeling amplifiers?
Modeling amplifiers can replicate the sound of
bass amps, guitar amps, effects
and cabinets. They also have the ability to create the sound of a traditional
speaker cabinet when it is mixed with various varieties of microphones. The user
will also have the option to generate their own distinctive sound as some modelers are original creations not intended to reproduce the sound of any
actual real life guitar. Thanks to the technology of modeling, there are a few
advantages when using modeling amplifiers over conventional amplification.
Typically, modeling amps are capable of a broad range of effects and tones as
well as cabinet simulation resulting in the ability to record without a
microphone. Modeling amps generally digitize the input signal and use a DSP to
manage the signal with digital computation.
A modeling amp for all sounds.
The good news is there will never be a compromise for sound with a modeling amp.
It just depends on the sound you are after and what you play. The Behringer Bass
V-AMP Pro is not just for the pros. It provides the ultimate tone toolbox for
keyboard, bass and acoustic/electrical guitar players and has Behringersâ€™
exclusive rotary effects, auto wah and DI output with ULTRA-G cabinet
simulation. You can choose between 32 classic amp, 23 speaker cabinets and 16
awesome effects modes. If youâ€™re looking for an effects pedal that creates an
acoustic guitar sound on a standard electric guitar then the Behringer AM100 is
If youâ€™re looking for a
guitar amp it will be easy to see why using a modeling
amp is so good. As a musician you will find it easy to decide for yourself which
one is for you and which one can convey your individual tone the best. Guitar
amp modeling really is the future for guitar amplification.
