Mercuriall Audio Software announces new guitar amp sim “Spark”!

Spark is a VST/AU/AAX plugin that models four Marshall® tube amplifiers, four guitar cabinets, four overdrive pedals and a set of the most common spatial effects.
Spark is the realization of all our latest achievements in the field of real-time electric circuits modeling. First of all, it’s a tube push-pull power amplifier that is working with a reactive load (guitar cabinet), with negative feedback and electric feed chains. This allowed us to implement a truly realistic poweramp saturation (very important for the majority of the Marshall®-based amps), realistic work of the Presence knob and made possible to take into account the influence of the output and power transformers.
We have considerably improved the cabinet section. Apart from the smooth positioning of microphones, we added an option to mix sound of two mics. This allows you to find pretty much any desired sound. There are four cabs and three microphones at your disposal.
Despite the fact that Spark is an amp and cab sim above all, we gave a lot of attention to the FX section. There is a Noise Gate at the input, as well as a number of pedals: there are currently four overdrives, implemented with our proprietary technology of the electric chain modeling. As for the spatial effects - there are Chorus, Delay and Reverb.
Spark’s UI continues our approach of simple usability at no expense to a wide functionality. All main actions require just a single click. We pay a lot of attention to the design, that passes a lot of iterations of adjustments and improvements, offering you a very simple and functional solution.
Spark is planned to be released in Q4 2016.

Will be announced later.

Looks very interesting. Will there be a demo or a free "lite" version to try?




All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

Whatsup!
Here is a short sample of a clean sound you can get with Spark. Built-in chorus, reverb and delay were used. No processing on the guitar track. Some basic VSTs on Master.

How does it sound to you? =)

There's a lite version of U530 with next month's Computer Music. 
Sure hope it's less lite than the lite one at Mercuriall HQ 'cause those knobs don't turn.

erm
it's a guitar with fx
if you're going to bother posting a demo, then make it have a point- show settings on the ampsim, guitar used, then post some other settings, a crunch, a distortion, a lead, then even better a full track demo with the amp sim inplace.
i'm sure it's lovely but 1m20s on Drop Box ain't gonna cut it

Yup, a guitar with FX - just a short sample to show what is possible to achieve with this amp sim in terms of a simple clean sound.
Don't consider it a demo =)
 
I'll record more specific stuff when we are closer to a release build, to make sure the sound represents the desired quality.

well i have had a bit of time to play around with spark, and it is quite awesome, sounds and feels great, love all the 4 amps, hard to pick a fav, they are all great sounding with enough tweakability with the tubes, cabs and mics etc to dial in what you want, and it's easy to get your sound, it's never far away. the effects are all more than descent, the overdrives, delay, chorus and reverb are all top notch. another excellent product from you guys. very happy with my purchase. thanks.
 
[edit] oh, and its not just the overdriven/distortion sounds, the clean is also very nice, as is everything in between, i really like it.
