Around May 2000 - Because Line6 took down their entire site for maintainence, I am mirroring the page here so the information remains available:
Process a direct guitar signal as you record, or process pre-recorded
tracks and tweak your amp sound right up to the final mix. It's the
easiest, fastest, and most powerful way to record guitar with a TDM
WHAT'S IT GOT?
Thanks to TubeTone, the Amp Farm software plug-in includes a truly incredible collection of guitar tones, modeled from a collection of specific, sought-after amplifiers. The TubeTone Amp models were developed from in-depth studies of eight different amplifiers: a Fender Twin; Fender Blackface Deluxe Reverb; Fender Bassman; Marshall JCM 800; Marshall Plexi; Marshall JTM45; and Vox AC 30 top boost and non-top boost. Version 1.5 adds models based on a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Trem-o-verb & Dual Rectifier head, a Soldano SLO head & X88R preamp, and a Matchless Chieftain.
With Amp Farm, you can easily record great tones modeled from these classic amps on a PCI-based TDM system, including tweakable, programmable EQ modeled from the original amps' tone controls.
Amp Farm requires Macintosh PCI-based Pro Tools TDM hardware. (NuBus hardware is not supported.) Amp Farm will be available for Pro Tools NT Mixplus systems as part of the MIXpack of plugins. If you are interested in Amp Farm for Pro Tools NT, let us know at: firstname.lastname@example.org
DOES IT WORK?
Plug your guitar right into your Pro Tools interface - no miking up amps, no special pickups or other gimmicks. Pull up the Amp Farm TDM Plug-In in your Pro Tools session, and you get your amp on-screen. Set the knobs the way you like 'em, and lay down your tracks. Then, any time you want, you can go back to those same tracks, and adjust your Amp Farm amp setup, with full automation. Switch amps on the fly. Use multiple amps simultaneously. Tweak your tone. And everything you do can be stored right in your Pro Tools session.
Amp Farm also works great with other TDM-compatible software - like MotU Digital Performer, Opcode Vision, EMagic Logic Audio, and Steinberg Cubase. Since Amp Farm is a "real-time" plug-in, Pro Tools TDM PCI-based hardware is required - Amp Farm does not run as a VST, Pure DSP, Premiere, or other format plug-in.
