Editado el 21-04-2020 a las 13:32:36

Esta es una lista de los amplificadores que el modelo Axe-Fx Ultra emula, incluidas sus descripciones (manual y sitio web en algunos ), sugerencias de cabinas a usar y notas adicionales.

TUBE PRE

Simulación de PREAMPLIFICADOR DE ESTUDIO A VÁLVULAS

Esta es una simulación de un previo a válvulas de baja ganancia totalmente neutro. Util para calentar voces y otros instrumentos así como para sonido directo de guitarr.

Bajar el nivel de Drive si la señal se rompe.

JAZZ

Simulación de ROLAND JAZZ CHORUS JC-120

Este modelo está basado en un amplificador combo 2x12 de transistores, conocido por su calided, sonido con medios gordos y chorus estéreo incluido.

Cabinas sugeridas: Alternativa: Red Wirez JC-120

BROWNFACE

Simulación de FENDER VIBROVERB

Este modelo se basa en un combo de 40 W que es ideal para limpios claros o abrasivas y blues viscerales. Este amplificador se rompe muy bien, especialmente cuando el Master está arriba.

Controles originales (canal normal): volumen (sin master), graves / agudos, interruptor brillante (activado de forma predeterminada). El amplificador real también tiene un canal brillante.

Para un tono limpio auténtico: subir el Master, Drive a 3.50. Para más crujiente, subir Drive.

Cabinas sugeridas: 1x10 Gold. Alternative: Red Wirez Fender Dual Showman

59 BASSGUY

Simulación de FENDER BASSMAN

Modelo basado en el Fender Bassman®, un amplificador de ganancia baja a media diseñado para bajo pero más ampliamente adoptado por los guitarristas por sus excelentes tonos para blues y rock.

Controles originales: volumen, presencia, graves, medios, agudos. Canal normal / brillante

Para un tono auténtico: arriba el Master, Drive a 3.50.

Probar con un bloque Treble Booster Drive.

Cabinas sugeridas: 4x10 Bass. Alternative: Red Wirez Bassman

DELUXE VERB

Simulación de FENDER DELUXE REVERB (AB763)

Modelo basado en un combo 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb® 1x12. Este modelo tiene un gran tono acampanado, con una agradable ruptura del amplificador de potencia cuando se apura el MASTER.

El antiguo nombre "Tweed Deluxe" y la descripción no coincidían con el amplificador modelado. El nombre fue cambiado a Deluxe Verb en el firmware 9.01 y el amplificador fue remodelado.

Controles originales: volumen, graves, agudos.

Para un tono auténtico: sube el Master, Drive a 3.50, Mid a 6.8.

Cabinas sugeridas: 1x12 Tweed o 1x12 Black. Alternativa: Red Wirez Fender Deluxe Reverb (altavoz Oxford)

DOUBLE VERB

Simulación de FENDER TWIN REVERB

Basado en un combo blackface Fender Twin Reverb® de 100 vatios y 2x12 ", en el canal "Normal". Conocido por sus increíbles sonidos limpios, también "rompe" muy bien.

Controles originales (canal normal): volumen (sin master), graves / medios / agudos, interruptor brillante (desactivado por defecto).

Para un tono auténtico: subir el Master, Drive a 3.50.

Cabinas sugeridas: 2x12 Black. Alternativa: Red Wirez Fender Twin

CLASS A

Simulación de VOX AC30

Modelo basado en el Vox AC30®, un combo que dominó el sonido británico. Este modelo tiene el mismo carácter arenoso, tono cálido y una sensación muy "tocable".

Controles originales: Cut, Volumen. Brillo apagado por defecto. El amplificador original no tenía controles de graves, medios y agudos, así que déjelos al mediodía y usa Presence (= Cut) en su lugar.

Un AC30 no tiene retroalimentación de amplificador de potencia, por lo que no tiene controles de presencia o profundidad. Tiene un control de "corte" que es básicamente un amortiguador ajustable en el inversor de fase. El control de presencia se convierte en el control de corte. Para duplicar el amplificador, solo tienes que ajustar la Presencia negativa, pero el modelo también te permite saturarla si ajustas la Presencia positiva.

El control de Profundidad no hará nada, por lo que no importa dónde lo configures. Si el Dumping (Dump) es cero, el control de profundidad (Depth) está deshabilitado, y Damp está predeterminado en cero para ese modelo de amplificador.

Para un tono auténtico: apura el Master, mantén el Drive bajo, mantén los controles de tono al mediodía, y usa Presence para cortar los agudos.

Prueba con un bloque Tonebender o Treble Booster Drive. Prueba con la combinación de tonos (Tonestack) Plexi. O prueba la gama de tonos AC30TB (Brillante encendido)

Cabinas sugeridas: 1x12 or 2x12 Brit. Alternativa: Red Wirez Vox

TOP BOOST

Simulación de VOX AC30TBX TOPBOOST

Modelo basado en el Vox AC30TBX® Top Boost, un amplificador creado en respuesta a la demanda de "Más agudos". Grandes agudos y graves ligeramente reducidos.

Controles originales: volumen, corte (= control de presencia), graves, agudos. Brillo encendido por defecto.

Para un tono auténtico: apurar el Master, configura Drive al gusto, Medios a mediodía. Usa Presencia solo para cortar las frecuencias altas (a la izquierda del mediodía).

Un AC30 no tiene retroalimentación de amplificador de potencia, por lo que no tiene controles de presencia o profundidad. Tiene un control de "corte" que es básicamente un amortiguador ajustable en el inversor de fase. El control de presencia se convierte en el control de corte.
Para duplicar el amplificador, simplemente ajusta la Presencia negativa, pero el modelo también te permite aumentar si ajustas la Presencia positiva.

El control de Profundidad no hará nada, por lo que no importa dónde lo configures. Si el Dumping (Dump) es cero, el control de profundidad está deshabilitado y Damp está predeterminado en cero para ese modelo de amplificador.

En lugar de subir el Drive, intenta aumentar la señal de entrada antes del amplificador, por ejemplo, con una unidad Tape Drive o un bloque FET Boost Drive.

Otro enfoque para obtener un tono Topboost: usa el simulador Clase A, configura tu stack de tonos en TopBoost, enciende Bright.

Cabinas sugeridas: 1x12 o 2x12 Brit. O usa (o combina con) Marshall greenbacks (4x12 20w o 25w).Alternativa: greenbacks de Red Wirez Vox y Marshall, Ownhammer Blue y greenbacks

PLEXI 1

Simulación de MARSHALL SUPER LEAD (MODEL 1959 a.k.a. PLEXI)

Basado en el clásico amplificador británico que dio origen al tono Marshall: el Plexi Super Lead Model 1959. Ideal para trabajos de ritmo crujiente.

Controles originales: volumen, graves, medios, agudos. Presencia en modelos posteriores. Brillo (solo canal principal) (activado de forma predeterminada).

Apurar el Master, configurar Drive alto.

Experimenta con configuraciones de Sag más altas.

Debido a que el condensador de brillo (canal principal) es muy grande, el interruptor Bright tiene un gran impacto en la cantidad de ganancia.
Una de las primeras modificaciones que la gente hace a los verdaderos Marshalls 'Plexi' es quitar el condensador del potenciómetro de agudos del canal principal. Este varió a lo largo de los años, supuestamente dependiendo de lo que había en la tienda. El modelo predeterminado viene con el condensador en el circuito. Si apagas el brillo, estás cortando efectivamente el cap de brillo.
Sin cortar el cap en Marshalls, el sonido puede ser muy brillante y áspero. Sin embargo, si apuras el Master, puedes observar que amplificador de potencia oscurece el sonido, ayudando a compensar el exceso de brillo.
Si los graves se vuelven "pedorros", sube Low-Cut

Cabinas sugeridas: 4x12 20w / 25w / Green. Alternativa: Red Wirez Marshall greenbacks, Ownhammer greenbacks.

DOUBLE VERB (formerly: BLACKFACE) = FENDER TWIN REVERB

Based on a blackface Fender Twin Reverb® 100-watt 2x12" combo, running the “Normal” channel. Known for amazing clean sounds it also breaks up very nicely

CLASS A = VOX AC30

Model based on the Vox AC30®, a combo that dominated the British Invasion sound. This model has the same gritty character, warm tone, and very playable feel

  • Cabinet suggestion: 1x12 or 2x12 Brit. Alternative: Red Wirez Vox, Red Wirez Blue, Ownhammer Blue
  • Original controls: Cut, Volume. Bright off by default. The original amp didn't have Bass, Middle and Treble controls, so leave them at noon and use Presence (= Cut) instead
  • Cliff: "An AC30 has no power amp feedback so it doesn't have presence or depth controls. It has a "Cut" control which is basically an adjustable snubber on the phase inverter. The Presence control becomes the Cut control. To duplicate the amp you would only adjust the Presence negative but the model lets you boost as well if you adjust Presence positive. The Depth control won't do anything so it doesn't matter where you set it. If the Damping (Damp) is zero the Depth control is disabled and Damp defaults to zero for that amp model"
  • For authentic tone: crank the Master, keep Drive low, keep the tone controls at noon, use Presence to cut the treble
  • Try with a Tonebender or Treble Booster Drive block. Try with the Plexi tonestack. Or try the AC30TB tone stack (Bright on)

  • Vox forum
TOP BOOST = VOX AC30TBX TOPBOOST

Model based on the Vox AC30TBX® Top Boost, an amp created in response to demand for "More Treble". Great highs and slightly reduced bass

  • Cabinet suggestion: 1x12 or 2x12 Brit. Or use (or combine with) Marshall greenbacks (4x12 20w or 25w). Alternative: Red Wirez Vox and Marshall greenbacks, Ownhammer Blue and greenbacks
  • Original controls: Volume, Cut (= Presence control), Bass, Treble. Bright on by default.
  • For authentic tone: crank the Master, set Drive to taste, Mid at noon. Use Presence only to cut the high frequencies (left of noon)
  • Cliff: "An AC30 has no power amp feedback so it doesn't have presence or depth controls. It has a "Cut" control which is basically an adjustable snubber on the phase inverter. The Presence control becomes the Cut control. To duplicate the amp you would only adjust the Presence negative but the model lets you boost as well if you adjust Presence positive. The Depth control won't do anything so it doesn't matter where you set it. If the Damping (Damp) is zero the Depth control is disabled and Damp defaults to zero for that amp model"
  • Instead of turning up Drive, try boosting the input signal before the amp, for example with a Tape Drive or FET Boost Drive block
  • Another approach to get a Topboost tone: use the Class A sim, set its tonestack to AC30TB, switch on Bright (source: Scott Peterson)

PLEXI 1 = MARSHALL SUPER LEAD (MODEL 1959 a.k.a. PLEXI)

Based on the classic British amp head that gave rise to the Marshall stack: the Super Lead Model 1959 Plexi. Great for crunchy rhythm work

  • Cabinet suggestion: 4x12 20w / 25w / Green. Alternative: Red Wirez Marshall greenbacks, Ownhammer greenbacks
  • Original controls: Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble. Presence on later models. Bright (Lead channel only) (on by default).
  • Crank the Master, set Drive high. Experiment with higher Sag settings
  • Because the bright cap (Lead channel) is very large, the Bright switch has a great impact on the amount of gain. Source
  • Cliff: "One of the first mods people make to real 'Plexi' Marshalls is to "clip the bright cap". The bright cap varied over the years, supposedly depending on what was lying around in the shop. The model defaults to the bright cap in the circuit. If you turn the bright off you're effectively clipping the bright cap. With the bright cap in Marshalls can be very bright and harsh. However, if you crank the Master you might find the extra brightness helps compensate for the power amp getting darker"
  • If the bass gets farty, turn up Low-Cut
