Metal Amp Room

Amp Simulator by Softube

"The range of sounds that you can get from changing the mic setup and tweaking the controls is surprisingly wide, and unlike many of the amp modelling plug-ins currently available, this one really manages to convey a sense of power and weight."
Paul White. Chief Editor of Sound on Sound Magazine.

"Metal Amp Room excels at a full-on aggressive metal sound with a smooth high-end that responds particularly well to a palm-muted playing style."
Guitarist Magazine. Guitarist is the longest established UK guitar magazine.

"Metal Amp Room - amazing! I don't know how you do it Softube, but you do it better than the rest."
Harris Johns. Producer, mix engineer (Kreator, Sepultura, Sodom, Voivod, Celtic Frost).

Metal Amp Room 

Metal Amp Room was designed to bring you the most brutal, evil and aggressive guitar sound that is possible to squeeze out of your DAW. It may even contain backward messages. Run it in mono for a tight and focused sound, or let it take up your entire stereo width by the use of two panned microphones.

We should probably add it to our end user agreement that by installing Metal Amp Room to your DAW, you agree to having it posessed by a dark and evil force. Plus you may want to consult an exorcist if you should ever wish to uninstall.

Just kidding. Metal Amp Room won't make your computer screen spin (and you won't want to uninstall it either), but it was designed with the intent of letting you metal heads get the most fiercely brutal high gain guitar sound possible out of your DAW.

Metal Amp Room was co-developed with Patrik Jensen (The Haunted) and tailored to his needs. The continuous mic placement from Vintage Amp Room is here as well, but this time with twin mics and adjustable stereo panning. Get a huge stereo sound with complex adjustable phasing effects, a plain old one-mic-right-against-the-cone, or anything in between.

Included is also a fantastic gate, great for palm muting galore. It opens insanely fast - faster than any hardware gate - and its release (how fast it closes after being opened) is program-dependent. This means that fast playing will give you an extremely fast closing gate, while slow playing will yield a slower release.

The cabinets were measured in the In Flames studio (previously known as Studio Fredman) by Tue Madsen (producer of Dark Tranquility, Sick Of It All, Mnemic) and Patrik Jensen. Among the presets, you will find Tue Madsen's own personal favorites.


  • Raw and authentic metal guitar amp sound
