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


  • 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).
    Select from six models of well-known guitar amplifiers:
  1. USA – Fender™ Deluxe
  2. Plexi – Marshall™ Plexi
  3. British – VOX™ AC-30
  4. Chief – Matchless™ Chieftain
  5. Rectify – Mesa Boogie™ Rectifier
  6. Twin – American Fender Twin™
  • MIC
    This is a switch to control on-axis versus off-axis mic’ing of the speakers.
    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. 1×12 – one active 12-inch speaker
  2. 2×12 – two active 12-inch speakers
  3. 4×12 – four active 12-inch speakers
  • GAIN
    The Gain switch introduces a 3 dB boost into the guitar amp, like a high gain switch.
    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.
    Range: 0 ~ 100
    This is the output level of the amplifier. When set to a minimum setting, no signal will be heard.
    Range: 0 ~ 100


  • TONE
    This switch enables the four tone controls. When 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
    Controls the amount of high frequencies.
    Range: 0 ~ 100
    Sometimes referred to as Brilliance or Edge, Presence boosts very high frequencies.
    Range: 0 ~ 100
