Klevgrand Releases STARK Amp Simulator For Mac, PC And iOS

This powerful guitar amp and cab processor for desktop and mobile is on sale until April 15th. Here's why you should grab it now.

STARK, new from Klevgrand, is a fully fledged amplifier simulator consisting of four modules: Amplifier, Cabinet, Room and a Pedal board. The modules are processing audio separately, which makes it possible to combine different amplifiers with different cabinets and rooms. It's available as a plug-in for Mac and PC and also as an Audio Unit for iOS, meaning it will run in Cubasis and other mobile DAWs.

What separates STARK from other amp simulators is that the cab, amp and ambience modules are built on Klevgrand’s very own algorithms that doesn’t involve any convolution or FFT analysis. According to Klevgrand, their approach renders a more natural response to dynamics over the whole frequency spectrum. Owing to their method Klevgrand also has the ability to fine-tune each profile in ways that just isn’t possible when using convolving methods.

The Amplifier module offers 12 different amplifier profiles. It has both a clean mode and an overdrive mode, an equalizer functionality (including presence), and a booster controlling the end stage amplification saturation.

The Cabinet simulation consists of 10 different cabinets of various sizes and sound. This module also offers a stereo width knob that simulates the distance between two microphones put in front of the cone.

The Room simulation offers 6 different kinds of rooms, where each room size can be changed between Small, Medium and Large. There’s also a decay parameter controlling reflectivity of the walls and a dry/wet mix.

The Pedal board contains 4 FX slots where any of the 14 included effects can be inserted. The order of the pedals can easily be changed using drag and drop.
