That went quicker than we were expecting! Having just got excited about the teaser video, we’ve just received full details of Mercuriall’s new amp sim plug-in. It’s called Euphoria, it’s based on a modded version of a Bogner amp, it uses neural networking techniques to achieve its sound.
Neural Hybrid Engine 1.5
Mercuriall Audio’s Euphoria is modelled on a special version of Reinhold Bogner’s all-tube Ecstasy 101B amplifier. This particular model has been fitted with the optional Cameron factory mod.
The plug-in uses Mercuriall’s Neural Hybrid Engine 1.5 to create its amp tones. The demo sounds we’ve heard so far are, well, pretty stunning, actually. They range from Fender-style cleans through to Marshall crunch and beyond. 12 power amp settings are available, as well as more preamp switches. This lets you go through some classic amp voices of yesteryear, including Fender, Vox and Marshall. Push it further and you’re into modern high-gain amp territory.
There’s also a range of built-in effects modelled on pedals by Boss, Ibanez, Mesa Boogie and Dunlop. A variety of cabinets are available too. The modelled tubes offered here include 12AX7GTR and EL34B, which you can bypass completely.
Then there are virtual recreations of various microphones including industry standards by Shure, Sennheiser and Royer. All in all, there is a lot in this one package and I cannot wait to try it out in my own setup.
