The Virtual-Valve Amplifier is a computer simulation of a number of vacuum tube amplifier circuits. (Valve is the British term for electron tube. We call it the "Virtual Valve Amplifier, because that sounds cooler than "Virtual Tube Amplifier.") Its effect is to add "tube-warmth" to the sound of a recording. This is sometimes desirable to apply to today’s more “sterile” digital recordings. It can also be used to add subtle harmonics to very old recordings. A harmonic exciter is also included with the Virtual Valve Amplifier. It is important to note that the Virtual Valve amplifier is using real tube circuits, and real tube non-linear device characteristics to produce its effect. The wide range of adjustability of this algorithm will allow you to create an amplifier that runs the gamut in sonic performance from "grit-guitar" to "high-end audiophile."
