Jan Maes has released jAmp 8100, an emulation of the Marshall Valvestate 8100 amplifier, available as a FREE download with an in-app purchase that unlocks the app.
Numerous metal bands showcased this amplifier in their albums, with particularly notable appearances in the works of bands such as Death, Prong, and Static-X.
- Standalone, or as a AUv3 plugin in GarageBand, Logic Pro, or other DAW.
- Marshall Valvestate 8100 emulation
- Noise gate
- Ibanez Tube Screamer emulation
- Ten band equalizer
- Five band post amp equalizer
- Impulse response (IR) loader
- Integrated IRs by forward-audio.com and Valhallir.at
The free version allows you to test jAmp 8100 completely, but every minute the amplifier will be silent for 3 seconds. To remove these limits there is a one time in-app purchase.
You need an audio interface to connect your instrument to your Mac. Known audio interface brands are for instance Focusrite or iRig.
If you don’t have an audio interface, you can still use the AUv3 plugin in a DAW such as GarageBand or Logic Pro. Any (guitar) sound you have recorded can be fed through the jAmp 8100 audio unit to add solid state distortion or any of the other included effects.
