Vandal – Virtual guitar & bass amplification

What could be better than designing your own amp? With the program’s variable interface for amps and cabinets, you can combine components from different amps and speakers. This lets you customize your sound and manipulate it according to your needs.

Handcrafted. Built from scratch.

The Vandal bass and guitar amp doesn’t try to emulate the sound of some analog amp, but rather sends the plugin signal through its own virtual chain comprising stomp box, amplifier, speaker and microphone – All clean, crunch, hi-gain and lead sounds are formed through amplifiers with emulated output. This gives these amps an honest, clean sound that responds to the skill of the musician and the

The power of instinct.

The intuitive program interface is based on how professional guitarists and bassists work with tube amps, stomp boxes and other hardware and lets you get started right away.

Artists on Vandal

“The effects are very good and easy to use, as is the mic selection and placing. I even recorded a guitar part and then using Vandal as a pre-amp fed it back into an old Fender Twin in the studio room, which worked really well too. I can definitely see Vandal becoming an absolutely integral part of my recording process. Great bunch of presets to start out with and so easy to program my own. Loving it, thank you.”

Wayne Hussey, vocalist and founding member of legendary British band “The Mission”

24 stomp boxes

Develop your own sound with customizable pedalboards – whether you’re playing metal, funky, jazz or surf guitar. You can add up to four different effects pedals for overdrive, distortion, modulation,delay, echo, or a 7-band EQ.

Distorts guitars, basses and everything around it with its heavy sound.

It’s about to get loud! The cabinet section in Vandal contains a number of virtual speakers in different sizes (10″, 12″ and 15″), models and materials for guitars and bass.

Microphones in a class of their own

Change the position, distance to amp and the volume of the three microphones (2x dynamic and 1x condenser) to set the optimal sound.

Virtual effects rack at end of the signal chain

We’ve integrated an additional, comprehensive effects rack at the end of the signal path for those effects that don’t always sound good “before” the amp. It’s yet another option for adapting the sound to your needs.

Free user presets for Vandal.

These presets for the Vandal virtual bass and guitar amp can be downloaded for free and easily integrated into your setup. The presets have been developed with Vandal users. You can find them here
