This means that you can now add the Pinnacle Deluxe and the Nirvana Chorus pedals to your virtual rig, and more Wampler pedals may soon be available.
It appears that more and more guitar gear producers are embracing the digital realm and to me this is good news because at least they earn from their officially approved digital models.
I guess this proves the old saying, if you can't beat them join them. Since their products will eventually be modeled anyway, might as well make some profit by releasing officially approved digitized versions.
Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe
The Pinnacle Deluxe is a virtual overdrive pedal that replicates the sound of overdriven early '80s plexi-style amplifiers. This tone is also known as the "Brown sound", which was popular back then and is still very much relevant today.
This overdrive pedal has a dual mode feature that will let you use it as a standard overdrive or you can engage the boost switch for increased distortion. Sound shaping controls include tone and contour, which you can use to balance the high and mid frequencies.
Wampler Nirvana Chorus
This virtual modulation pedal is said to be one of the most versatile chorus models in the Custom Shop. According to the official press release, "It delivers both flexible, shimmering, lush, rich chorus effects and a huge range of vibrato all from one stomp effects pedal."
To achieve its sonic flexibility, this pedal comes with quite a number of control options. This includes the level control for boosting the effect signal above unity, a tone control for fine tuning and sculpting the high-end content tone of the effect, depth and rate controls, plus a tri-level effect intensity toggle and vibrato/chorus mode toggle.
To see the new gear models in the AmpliTube Custom Shop, you need to download the latest version of the software, which is 3.13. Both pedals are now available for 20 credits each, which translates to just under $20. Other virtual gear and gear credit packs are also available, visit AmpliTube.
