Ampex Ecosystems

I set out to make a collection of cinematic guitar-ecosystems using this preamp’s fussy charm. I also didn’t quite want these patches to resemble guitar playing too closely, so I ended up dangling an EBow from a shoelace above the bridge pickup, scraping the strings with cutlery, and other similar tomfoolery.

Each of the patches includes four signals pannable and mixable via the GUI: two “clean” mic signals bypassing the Ampex 600 and the same two mic signals after being sent in to be dirtied by the Ampex 600. The mics themselves are Slate microphones modeled to emulate the Royer R-121 and the Telefunken 251e. These were placed on a Fender Deluxe VM cab.

Included Patches:

  • Ash Clouds

  • Droplets

  • Festering Thrums

  • Iridescence

  • Serrated Neon

  • Sunspots

  • Thunderstep

  • Volt-Hammer
