Vandal

Vandal is the only guitar and bass amplifier that combines the characteristic sound and feel of a real hardware setup with the advantages of a software application – all for you to enjoy on your computer!

Every step and component of the amplifier, from the tube to the speaker coils, is virtualized.

Physical modeling technology guarantees great sound without compromise, whether during studio recording sessions, band rehearsals, or live gigs!

The intuitive program interface is based on workflows that are optimized for guitar and bass players who are familiar with these kinds of work processes from working with hardware.


Individual style

Vandal brings more than just a new design and operation concept to virtual guitar and bass amplifiers; borrowing from classic guitar lineups, the plug-in signal goes through the stomp box, amplifier, speaker, microphone, and any possible echo/reverb effects, in which case every kind of clean, crunch, hi-gain, and lead tone is shaped using a unique, universally emulated amp.

In contrast to emulations which use impulse response, individual play methods and guitars receive the same significance as real tube amplifiers.

Custom amplification

Want to combine components from different amplifiers and customize details yourself? Want to build your own custom amp or build a copy of a well-known model? With Vandal, it's easy!

Vandal is based on a variable concept for amps and cabinets. This lets users adjust sound individually and change and manipulate it according to their ideas. Of course, the program also includes various presets compiled by experienced musicians and producers, giving users a head start and allowing them to obtain fantastic results quickly.

 

Two worlds, one software

A real bass and guitar amp in a single box – is that even possible? The answer is yes – and in top quality!

Even when starting Vandal for the first time, you can choose between two amplifier models. The guitar and bass amps are extremely flexible and can be adapted to the individual needs of any musician. Whether bass or guitar, with Vandal you'll get the best of both worlds!

 

 


In the studio and live

If you want to rock, you've got to be able to count on your amp!

No drop-outs, no latency, no internal signal delays and the highest possible operational reliability. With its reliable engine, first-class sound quality and flexible MIDI functions, Vandal is the ideal companion for long studio sessions, rehearsals, and live gigs.

 

 

Effects & stomp boxes

The real world has produced many of the "stomp box" devices popular with guitarists and bassists. We've also included a rich palette in Vandal. We researched real models for inspiration, but also let ourselves be guided by our own ideas about sound, designing completely new models.

Distortion effects that don't always sound good "before" the amp are usually attached to the end of the signal chain. That's why we integrated an additional, comprehensive effects rack at the end of the signal path.
