MESHUGGAH AMP PROFILES

The Officially Licensed Fortin MESHUGGAH Kemper pack from Replicant Audio features an array of tones from the highly sought after MESHUGGAH tube amplifier.

MESHUGGAH MODDED AMPS BY MIKE FORTIN

From the extreme metal giants MESHUGGAH and the tone lab of Fortin Amplification, comes the first ever Meshuggah Signature amplifier! 
Late 2016 just before The Violent Sleep of Reason Tour, Mike was asked to create an amplifier for Fredrik & Mårten that would not only cover the entire arsenal of amps used on the new record, but could also nail the older classic tones.  As a result of much research and development, we are pleased to present this machine of torture, the MESHUGGAH Signature 50W amplifier !

THE FORTIN MESHUGGAH AMPLIFIER IS ALL POINT-TO-POINT HANDWIRED, ALL TUBE 50W, SINGLE-CHANNEL FIRE BREATHER.

This very limited amplifier features an array of NOS parts that lend to its’ unique tonal characteristics.  Brutal, tight, and aggressive, whilst still retaining feel and clarity, the MESHUGGAH has been designed with extreme metal musicians in mind.

Twin gain controls and pull gain MVC allows for the perfect dialing of sickening amounts of gain. Classic British vintage styling, NOS Dialight Indicator, simple and intuitive front panel layout with small box head cabinet format that ties it all in for a sleek look.

PLUG IN AND RE-ANIMATE YOUR INSPIRATION AND PLAYING!

“The best of the best ! Mr. Mike Fortin! Thank you for building us these exquisite machines of torture! There are just no words to describe how pleased we are with them! It’s like having the whole arsenal of amps used on ‘The Violent Sleep of Reason record built into one head – and we have three !! 
Mind blown!”

Fredrik Thordendal(Meshuggah)

The Officially Licensed Fortin MESHUGGAH Kemper pack from Replicant Audio features an array of tones from the highly sought after MESHUGGAH. No expense was spared by the team most familiar with the amplifier to present a realistic profile pack.

From bone-crushing chug territory, to searing lead tones and a nod to the vintage Plexi tones this amplifier is capable of, all are represented in this pack.

A blend of direct and merged profiles, this offering is sure to appeal to even the most demanding metal tone enthusiast. In addition to the MESHUGGAH, Fredrik Thordendal’s iconic and highly sought after 33 pedal is used to boost many profiles in this pack. The 33 takes these profiles to an entirely new level of brutality. The Officially Licensed Fortin MESHUGGAH Kemper pack from Replicant Audio is a must-have for any heavy and extreme-minded guitarist.

Introduction

All rigs were made with Meshuggah amplifier serial# 001, and profiled by Jocke Skog at Sunmountain
Facilities and Fear and Loathing Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. The amp was tweaked by Jocke Skog and Mike Fortin.
All rigs were made with the highest regard to detail and some has 2 or more microphones and/or post processing to perfect the particular sound. However, the goal was to have a starting point and then let the user make the necessary tweaks (if needed) since every person and every guitar has it’s own character. There’s an ”overdrive pedal” in every program (bypassed by default) and there’s also an EQ with a HP/LP filter for quick shaping of the profiles (bypassed by default).
