The amplifiers

AmpliTube Leslie has a distinct advantage over its competitors with its circuit-modeled amplifiers, which are critical to recreating the signature tone of these incredible units, especially when overdriving the amp circuit, typical of genres like rock and blues.

The cabinets

Leslie cabinets are very complex to reproduce in the digital realm because of the number of time-variant effects that happen within the sound simultaneously during the rotation of the rotors. These include the Doppler effect plus continuously and smoothly variable delay, frequency and phase response as well as variable reverberation/reflections inside the cabinet walls, and that is just scratching the surface.

These complex machines have been recreated using Volumetric Response Modeling, a breakthrough proprietary technology from IK, that includes modeling of some parts and capturing the real audio behavior by miking up the cabinets in a high-quality room to extract the essence of their original tone. You can think of these digital Leslie models as providing actual audio recordings of the real cabinets, they are much more than an emulation algorithm!

The singing tone of these legendary cabinets is finally captured and at your fingertips. Plus, all horns and drums are recorded in stereo, making it possible to mix the four mics the way you prefer to fit all possible production needs. All controls are divided into three pages: Setup, Channels and EQ, while the speed controller is always visible for quick access.

Unprecedented creative versatility

In the advanced view, you have control over essential parameters like Mic Setup, Mic Distance, Slow/Fast Speed, and Acceleration/Deceleration. The Mic Setup menu changes the way you mic the Leslie cabinet and affects the perception you have on the rotation, or “doppler effect.” You can choose between a 90º mic position and a 180º mic position. The overall timbre and sonic character changes between the two providing even more versatility.

After these settings, we added a full parametric EQ to further shape the sound to fit your musical ideas.

For these models, the mixer has also been customized to implement their features better. Here you have two stereo tracks for both the horn and the drum microphones where you can control the width and volume. Try the drum microphones in the center for a solid low end and put the horn microphones far to the side to emphasize width on the high frequencies.

AmpliTube Leslie is also a powerful creative tool for playing, mixing and creating other sounds. Try it on guitars, synths, lead vocals, background vocals, sound effects and much more.
