Parameter Descriptions


  1. Page Selector: White icons at the top left of the plugin that can be used to change between “amp” and “pedal” view.
  2. OSC Control Button: Opens a dialog for OSC remote control.
  3. Preset Navigation Bar: Various controls for loading, saving, recalling and deleting presets.


  1. Cab Bypass: Bypasses the cabinet simulation. Can be used if one wants to pair the amplifier with custom impulse responses.
  2. +15dB Switch: Engages a high-gain channel.
  3. Input Gain: Adjusts the input level going into the amplifier.
  4. Three Band EQ: Adjust the amount of bass, mid, and treble on the amplifier.
  5. Output Gain: Sets the output level or gain of the signal.
  6. Doubler Bypass: Bypasses the doubler.
  7. Doubler Side Selector: Changes which channel (L/R) recieves the first echo of the doubled signal. This can be useful when tracking multiple guitar takes to change which side the doubler starts on in order to make sure that the stereo width feels more balanced.
  8. Doubler Amount: Controls the amount of doubling.



  1. Bypass: Bypasses the overdrive effect.
  2. Amount: Adjusts the amount or intensity of overdrive.
  3. Bias: Simulates a bias control used to adjust the operating voltages of tubes. It changes the distortion characteristic of the overdrive.
  4. Level: Sets the ouput level or gain of the overdrive effect.
  5. Tone: Controls a tone filter that shapes the overdrive effect.


  1. Bypass: Bypasses the reverb effect.
  2. Mix: Adjusts the balance between the dry and wet signal.
  3. LPF and HPF Filters: Shapes how much low and high end is present in the reverb signal.
  4. Selector: Allows a reverb to be selected from a choice of five reverbs.


  1. Bypass: Bypasses the delay effect.
  2. Feedback: Controls the level of feedback for the delay pedal.
  3. Sync: Determines the synchronization of the effect with the DAW’s tempo.
  4. Time: Sets the time value for the delay effect.
  5. Amount: Controls the amount of the delayed signal.
  6. LPF and HPF Filters: Shapes how much low and high end is present in the delay signal.


The Guitar Amplifier Plugin comes with a variety of presets to help you get started quickly. These presets are designed to emulate popular guitar tones used in different music genres. To use a preset, follow these steps:

  1. Open the preset menu or browser.
  2. Select a preset that suits your desired guitar tone.
  3. Load the preset to apply the selected settings.
  4. Make further adjustments to the controls if necessary.


If you encounter any issues or difficulties while using the Guitar Amplifier Plugin, try the following troubleshooting steps:

  1. Ensure that your DAW and operating system are up to date.
  2. Verify that the plugin is installed correctly and located in the appropriate folder.
  3. Check your audio interface settings and connections.
  4. Consult the plugin’s documentation or contact our support team for further assistance.

OSC Routing

Vintage Vibe also is fully OSC compatible, meaning that any parameter on the plugin has a unique OSC address that allows for the parameter to be changed from an OSC controller. Two example control solutions are provided below. The first example found here, utilizes the free IOS application PdParty. The second uses TouchOSC and can be downloaded here.
