STARK

Amp Simulator

macOS/Windows $79.99 and iPad $19.99

Ridiculously slick and playable

All-inclusive rig

STARK 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.

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. This approach renders a more natural response to dynamics over the whole frequency spectrum, plus the ability to fine-tune each profile in ways that just isn’t possible when using convolving methods.

  • 1. Very amportant

    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.

  • 2. Take a cab

    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.

  • 3. Plenty of rooms

    The Room simulation offers six 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.

  • 4. Step on it

    The Pedal board contains four 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.
