Ampire State Building
So what makes today’s Ampire so great? Well, this time around, the boys in Hamburg leveraged their expertise in State Space Modeling technology to create our amplifier and stompbox models. This same technology also powers our StudioLive® Fat Channel plug-in emulations of the venerated compressor and EQ designs that keep eBay in business—while also ensuring that the nuanced, variable sonic character of analog survives its transition to the digital realm.
