Nembrini Audio Faceman 2-Channel Head Guitar Amplifier
This latest Nembrini Audio software emulation, the Faceman 2-Channel Head Guitar Amplifier plugin, is based on a vintage Fender Bassman“blackface” amp from 1967 which were fitted into a rare 1×15 cabinet loaded with JBL D130F speaker. The original design actually came from a bass amp from the fifties, which was also modified due to the popularity among guitar players, who were using them as well.
Two Distinct Channels
As ever, Nembrini Audio has modelled the original amp in software, giving users two separate amp channels, each with its own distinctive sound. Both will get you close to the vintage originals in your DAW.
- BASS INSTRUMENT channel suitable for bass
- NORMAL channel suitable for both bass and guitar
Added Extras for a modern world
In this software emulation you can also choose between six different cabinets and four microphone emulations (including positions). A complete mixer section with solos, mutes, pans and faders completes the user interface. Up to three other impulse responses can be integrated into the mix via the mandatory IR loader. A Noise Gate/Cleaner tool ensures a clean sound before you route the signal into the effect.
This all adds up to a nice software suite. And if you buy in early, you can save a substantial amount of money. So be sure to check out the demo video and try out the demo version.
