Universal Audio Inc. (UA) — which specializes in audio production tools including the Apollo and Volt audio interfaces, UAD plug-ins, UA microphones, and UAFX guitar pedals — has introduced UAFX Guitar Amp Emulators — three new stompboxes emulating the vintage guitar amps:
° Dream ’65 Reverb Amplifier – The essential American tube amp used by the Beatles, Muddy Waters, Elvis Costello, and countless others for more than 60 years.
° Ruby ’63 Top Boost Amplifier – The iconic UK valve amp that defined the sound of the British Invasion, beloved by Queen, Radiohead, and U2.
° Woodrow ’55 Instrument Amplifier – The legendary tweed tube amp that started it all, beloved by Neil Young, Chuck Berry, and The Eagles.
UAFX Guitar Amp Emulators allow users to personalize footswitches, save presets, and get the same tones used by pro guitarists including Tim Pierce, Nels Cline, Cory Wong, and more, courtesy of the new UAFX Control mobile app for iPhone and Android. The three new emulators cost US$399 each.
