Atomic Amplifiers have announced the Ampli-Firebox, a collaboration with software geniuses Studio Devil.
With its familiar amp controls, the Ampli-Firebox distills the world's best amp modeling into an incredibly easy-to-use package in the form of a traditional guitar pedal with no display or menu system to navigate. Ampli-Firebox also includes great-sounding reverbs and extremely accurate speaker-cabinet simulations. Three toggle switches allow access to nine amps and three cabinets covering the entire spectrum of guitar tones from the beginning of electric amplification to the present.
For players seeking deeper tone-shaping features, the pedal can connect to a Mac or PC via USB to customize amp slot selections from Studio Devil's entire patented AmpliFIRE series library of models, upload third-party cabinet simulations (1024-point impulse responses) and access more advanced tone-shaping tools.
"Studio Devil Founder, Marc Gallo, and myself are especially excited to reach a whole new audience with Ampli-Firebox. We feel that many players have not yet embraced modeling because either they didn't like the 'all-in-one' approach of traditional modeling processors, the complex menu systems, or lackluster sound and feel. Ampli-Firebox solves all these issues and makes it simple to sound amazing," remarked Atomic Founder Tom King.
Ampli-Firebox will be available in the Spring of 2017 and will have an MSRP of $299.
