Version 3.0 of Amp Farm, the guitar amp-modeling effects plug-in, is now available.

Amp Farm 3.0 allows users to plug any guitar directly into a Pro Tools|HD, HD Accel, or VENUE live sound system and instantly hear it running through their choice of simulations of world-class guitar amplifiers and miked cabinets -- all without the hassle of dragging around physical amps, cabinets, and microphones, or paying for cartage.

This latest release of Amp Farm features all new cabinet models and newly included mic models. Users can select one of four different microphone setups to use with the cabinet they choose.

Amp Farm 3.0 works on live input tracks as well as pre-recorded Pro Tools tracks. This allows mixers to make adjustments to the plug-in's parameters to right up until the final mix, providing incredible flexibility and creative freedom when mixing. In addition to guitar recording, creative producers and sound designers have also used Amp Farm to process non-guitar sources, punching up -- or munching up -- the sound of drums, keyboards, vocals, sound design sources and practically any audio that can benefit from tube warmth, distortion, or speaker cabinet life.

Features:

  • Over a dozen recreations of guitar combos and heads
  • Simple amp-style control and automation of all parameters
  • Mix and match any amplifier and cabinet models for a wide variety of sounds
  • Selectable microphone models capture classic cabinet miking techniques
  • Process live guitar inputs or tweak pre-recorded tracks right up to the final mix
  • Add tube warmth, dynamic distortion, or speaker cabinet life to any audio track
  • Supports up to 192 kHz sample rates with Pro Tools|HD Accel
  • Compatible with Pro Tools 6.7 software on Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools|HD Accel systems
  • Supports the Digidesign VENUE live sound environment
  • iLok-protected for portability

MSRP for Line 6 Amp Farm 3.0 is $595 USD. Registered owners of Amp Farm 2.0 can purchase an upgrade to Amp Farm 3.0 for $95 USD from the online DigiStore (store.digidesign.com).

System Requirements: Digidesign-approved Pro Tools|HD, HD Accel, or VENUE live sound system.
