Preamp Models for Stellar Vocals

The exclusive GearBox tone software gives you models of the most sought after preamps in the recording world. GearBox even lets you run a completely different signal path for your microphone input with models of vintage preamps, compressors, and reverbs while still giving you the ultimate direct recording sound for your guitar or bass. In minutes, you'll be creating sounds that typically take an entire studio, an expert engineer, and a huge hourly rate to pull off!

GearBox Exclusive Preamp Models:
American Classic
Inspired by* an API lunch box preamp in a classic studio setup:
- API - 512c Mic Pre
- API - 550b EQ
- Studer® - 2-inch tape (Including Emphasis/De-emphasis & tape Soft Clip)

This model gives you classic rock tone that's focused and a bit compressed through soft distortion. It even includes the treasured tonality and saturation you'd get when recording to classic 24-track analog tape! Good for transients and maintaining a leveled vocal.

Vintage UK
Inspired by* a Neve 1073
Warm with mild distortion when pushed. Vintage UK handles transients very well and is great for vocal tracking. Extended bass range also makes it great for direct bass and drum work.

Inspired by* an Avalon Vt737
This modern must-have has a clean, bright, and non-compressed sound with soft transients.

Solid State Console Mic Pre Design
Has a flat frequency response that's clean with no artifacts or colorization. A great choice for tracking line level instruments like a keyboard.

Inspired by* a Classic Vintage Tube Preamp setup consisting of:
- Requisite Y7 Mic Pre
- API - 550b EQ
- Studer® - 2-inch tape (Including Emphasis/De-emphasis & tape Soft Clip)
This model yields vintage Motown, Memphis, Nashville, and early rock sounds.

Has a small speaker sound that's slightly distorted. Great for adding an overdriven vocal to a track.
