"SoftAmp FM25 is a virtual-analog
model of the Fender Frontman 25R combo amp. The
Frontman is a versatile solid-state practice
amplifier for electric guitar. It's equipped with
10" speaker, has 2 channels that share a 3-band
equalizer, and a spring reverb. The current issue
sports a classic "Blackface" look.
"Huh, a solid state Fender practice
amp model. Now that is an interesting choice" - was
the initial response from one of the beta testers.
The reason for that choice is simple: Frontman 25R
was the first guitar amp I've ever owned. To my best
knowledge its digital model did not exist, so I
decided to fill the gap. And after all, who needs
yet another incarnation of say, JCM800? :)
This VST model is a tribute to the
original design and faithfully models all its
essential features. It is mainly intended for quick
and simple recording of draft tracks as well as for
some live jamming whenever you don't feel like
setting up a more sophisticated amp simulator."
SoftAmp FM25 is free and is
available as a 32- and 64-bit Windows VST effect
