Scuffham Amps: Demo And Walkthrough
In this one, I’m going to take a look at some amp sims I recently found from a company called Scuffham Amps. I hope I’m saying that. Schuffhamamps.com. If you want to learn more about them, you can go to their website. I’ll show that to you in a bit.
Anyways, it’s four different amps, and then you get a little effects. A couple of different effects units. Delay, verb, and modulation thing, which is like, chorus and flange.
And then you get this Pro Colvover unit, which is basically impulse responses of various cabinets and microphone configurations, and you can blend them and stereoize them and do whatever you want with them.
So anyways, let’s get into it and let’s hear these things. This amp is called the Wayfare. It’s kind of a Fender thing. It sounds like this.
There you have it. It sounds like a great amp in a great room. Just to break down the plug-in, at the top you obviously have the amp and where you control amp type things, like gain, lead drive, bass, middle, treble, it’s got a little tremolo section on it, then below that, you can manage your presets here. This comes with a ton. They look like that.
Below that, you can move these units however you want, and any sequence you want. You right-click them, you can add another device. You can add the mod thing. And that’s pretty much it.
This is the max you can have in a chain. Right-click, remove device takes one away. The reverbs go from really small to really big, so tiny, tiny early reflections stuff, room sounds, all the way up to big halls.
Delay does your basic delay needs. Stereo, mono, slap delays, quarter note delays, all of that stuff.
Then the impulse response section — you can run it in stereo so you have one cab, two cabs, you can pan them, you can blend them, it’s got variable impedance, it’s got bass and treble, you can slave cab two to cab one if you wanted, you can bypass it, and you can turn them off and turn them on.
These are the impulses that come with it. So it’s got a Weber, Celestion, Matchless, Marshall, Orange, Bassman, you can read.
You can load your own in down here, or you can switch it to a DI. As far as the microphone, you’ve got a ribbon M160 or the 57 we all know and love.
Below that, you sort of have the I/O, so you can switch between A and B, amp A, amp B. It’s got a little meter. You can turn whole sections off, whether that be the amps, the effects, or the cabs. It’s got a nice little noise gate down here, as well as input and output trim sections for gain staging.
It doesn’t take up a ton of CPU. It’s simple, it’s to the point. One thing I really like doing with it is running a pedalboard into it, so out of your pedalboard, straight into your DI of choice, right into here.
I like that it’s just amps and a couple of little effects things. I think that’s great.
It comes in standalone, as well as a plug-in, so you’ve got all of your formats you’re used to. VST, AU, AAX. Let’s listen to another amp, because that’s important.
Here’s the Jackal amp, which is like an 80’s high gain thing. It sounds like this.
Check out the next one. I think this is like a Marshall type thing. The Steeler.
So yeah. That’s the Steeler.
Then our last one here is the Duke, which is kind of a mid-scoop Vox kind of thing, I think.
Yeah. That’s it.
This thing is great. I think you should check them out if you’re looking for some new amp sims. That’s all I’ve got for you.
Leave a comment down below, and I will pick a person and give them a free lifetime tutorial bundle from the website, mixnotes.tv, and like me on Facebook, find me on Instagram, Twitter, all of that stuff. I’m around.
Feel free to ask me questions. I might answer one, and that’s all I’ve got for you. So I will see you later this week in another video. See you.
