The Smoke Amp Simulator has a full set of amplifier controls, speaker combinations and modeled versions of several classic guitar amplifiers.

PAGE ONE CONTROLS (AMP)

AMP

Enables or disables the amplifier model. If the switch is off, then none of the amplifier models will be active (although the Speaker, Gain, Drive and Master controls will still be operational).

MODEL

These are representations, or models, of well-known guitar amplifiers;

  • USA – Fender™ Deluxe
  • Plexi – Marshall™ Plexi
  • BritishVOX-AC-30
  • Chief – Matchless™ Chieftain
  • Rectify – Mesa Boogie™ Rectifier
  • Twin – Fender™ Twin

MIC

This is a switch to control on-axis versus off-axis micing of the speakers.

SPEAKER

There are three different algorithms that simulate the number of speaker cones in an amplifier housing. If OFF is chosen, no speaker modeling will be heard.

  • 1×12 – one active 12-inch speaker
  • 2×12 – two active 12-inch speakers
  • 4×12 – four active 12-inch speakers

GAIN

The Gain switch introduces a XXdB boost into the guitar amp, like a “High Gain” switch.

DRIVE

Sometimes referred to as Overdrive, Drive represents the amount of overloading of the amplifier – which is what creates distortion. The higher this control is set, the more distorted the signal will be. Range: 0-100

MASTER

This is the output level of the amplifier. When set to a minimum setting, no signal will be heard. Range: 0-100

PAGE TWO CONTROLS (TONE)

TONE

This switch enables the four tone controls. When turned off, the settings of the Bass, Mid, Treble and Presence are disabled.

BASS

Controls the amount of low frequencies. Range: 0-100

MID

Controls the amount of mid-range frequencies. Range: 0-100

TREBLE

Controls the amount of high frequencies. Range: 0-100

PRESENCE

Sometimes referred to as Brilliance or Edge, Presence boosts very high frequencies. Range: 0-100
