“Well, I’ll Be a Monkey’s Uncle.”

November 29,2011

Brad tricked me.  He sent me this vid titled “Steve Vai Hand on Heart – Carvin DC400 PreSonus Studio One.” I got all excited, and clicked the link, and it started to play, and I was all “HOLY CRAP NO ONE TOLD ME WE SIGNED UP STEVE VAI.” Then the camera panned back from the guitar, and I realize it’s PreSonus artist Phil LaBarge! And not only does Phil play like Steve Vai, but he sounds like Steve Vai, thanks in no small part to the painstaking amp and cabinet re-creation algorithms of Ampire, the amp modeling package included in Studio One.

So, I guess it’s not all Brad’s fault. Our software engineers had a lot to do with it; listen for yourself! Sonically, it’s all here: buttery, polyunsaturated, gently delayed 80’s tubey-tone that makes me want to head down to the beach to practice my Karate Kid crane kicks.

With Ampire, you can fool your fans and have them thank you for it. Where else does that happen?! Thanks, Phil!
