Coming next: Vandal Bass Amp

This morning was the birth of Vandal’s 2nd amplifier. The bass amp is currently being added to the plugin’s main architecture. This is how it will look like:

bass_amp01Although it already pops up on the screen (upon choosing it from the ‘amps’ list), there’s currently not much coming out of it. It’s work in progress. Soldering lots of wires here… 😀

The architecture we’ve set up the last couple of weeks allows for ‘amplifier mainframes’, which means a generalized architecture of amps that have to be specified in detail. That was quite a bunch of code lines, lots of coffee and headaches… but now we’re prepared for a new beast 🙂

The bass amp is designed to serve a broad range of players and music styles. It’s an all-tube design, btw., housing a highly-interactive passive filter circuitry. The amount of knobs might appear limited at first sight, but we’re certain this baby becomes at least as versatile as the guitar amp. 😉

We’ll see within the next couple of days. Stay tuned.

    I’ve been following your blog ever since its first post, and as a guitarist who also enjoys playing the bass, this looks like a really interesting development. I’ve felt for a long time that there’s a real lack of versatility and variety in the bass amp modeling field (if you’re in the mood for something other than an Ampeg or a Bassman, you’re pretty much out of luck), relative to guitar amps and effects. So this is quite exciting.

    You wouldn’t happen to need a beta tester, would you?
    🙂
