Meticulously Modeled Classic Amps

A great guitar amp doesn’t just amplify your sound—it can breathe life into a simple riff or chord change, or viciously attack when it’s time to solo. The Eleven team went to great lengths to find the most lusted-after vintage and modern amps, speaker cabinets and mics—in their original form—to create a plug-in so realistic that you can practically feel the tubes burn.

For maximum realism, Eleven employs an entirely new amp modeling approach in which every stage of the amp’s signal path is modeled. The upshot: Eleven captures and re-creates the nuances that make a guitar amp combo sound like the real thing, including power amp sag, speaker cone breakup, cabinet resonance, ghost notes and more. Often overlooked by other amp-modeling solutions, these non-linear amp characteristics are precisely what give Eleven its unprecedented level of multi-dimensional realism.

Convolution-Based Speaker and Mic Modeling

Finding a great-sounding amp is only half the process of capturing a good tone. Many of the greatest guitarists and recording engineers spend hours—even days—changing speakers, mic types and mic positions in the studio to this end. To make sure this was done right with Eleven, the engineering team sought the help of recording studio expert John Cuniberti, who received both platinum and gold records for engineering/producing six Joe Satriani albums, and invented the very popular Reamp® box. With Eleven, you not only have instant access to an unparalleled collection of the most faithful-sounding speaker cabinet and mic models ever assembled, you’ve also got one of the world’s most notable guitar recording experts behind your tone.

The Eleven convolution engine is a major contributor to the plug-in’s true-to-life sounds. To achieve this, we captured impulse responses (IRs) using all of the classic must-have combo amp and cabinet enclosures. Once these IRs were recorded, a number of innovative techniques were used to capture the cabinet resonance that’s unique to each amp and speaker combination. Eleven even accurately models speaker load and coupling with the power amp, and the natural cabinet resonance that happens when driving a speaker at different volumes.

  Unprecedented Guitar Amp Realism

Eleven delivers another breakthrough by allowing you to fine-tune the amount of speaker cone breakup for any setup you create. Depending on the amount of power (wattage) driving the speaker, the cone will begin to vibrate at different rates as the volume is increased. Many of the greatest guitar tones ever recorded owe their presence and sizzle to this naturally occurring “cone breakup” effect. With Eleven, you can dial-in any amount you want—from zero to over-the-top—with a simple slider control.

Flexible Creative Opportunities

Eleven was designed and optimized for Pro Tools systems, so all of its controls and settings can be stored and automated. Gently turn up your tone and overdrive controls as your track builds momentum, or change a mic or speaker cabinet to add a different color during the verse. You can even bypass the amp and cabinet models individually to creatively combine multiple amps and/or cabinets.

Eleven not only captures the sound and feel of some of the most treasured amps ever made, the controls on each emulated amp function like the originals. The settings that work on your favorite vintage stack or combo will deliver the same stunning results in Eleven. Even the tremolo effects in Eleven are true to the vintage amp models that include them.

A Wrap

The hyper-realistic amp emulations and flexible tone-shaping options in Eleven set a new standard in guitar amp simulation. Whether you’re looking to re-create the greatest guitar sounds of the last 50 years, or searching for that truly organic tone, putting Eleven to work in your Pro Tools M-Powered or Pro Tools system will help you achieve it.
