Monster Tube Guitar Amplifier

Nembrini Audio 8180 Guitar Amplifier plugin is based on a Peavey 5150* .

The 8180 Monster Tube Guitar Amplifier plugin is the landmark for heavy and rock guitar sounds. If you are looking out for a modern and rich high gain tone ideal for the most aggressive rock and metal genre, then your search ends here!

Two channels with independent controls for volume and gain, low, mid and high shared equalizer controls and exclusive power amp resonance and presence controls.

  • Rhythm channel: you can achieve from crystal clean tones to powerful crunch sounds.
  • Lead channel: ready for harmonic-rich rock tones and super screaming metal drive sounds.
  • Power Amp Tube: select 6L6 or EL34 tube.
  • Tight : reduces low frequency content tightening the low range, suitable for 7/8 strings guitars
  • Rumbling: reduces the low-frequency content
  • Harsh: reduces the high-frequency content
  • Threshold: defines the level where the gate is activated
  • Range: selects the quantity of noise reduction
  • Gate : Adjust the gate speed

With Nembrini 8180 Guitar Amplifier is possible to choose between eight different guitar cabinets, four microphone emulations with on/off axis position switch, continuous position and distance knobs. A complete Mixer section with Solos, Mutes, Pans and Faders allows you to blend together the two microphones with the ambience.


Impulse Loader lets you load up to three third-party impulse responses that you can even blend together using volume, pan, phase, solo and mute controls.

This is one of the best sims for high gain music. I have tried most other 5150 sims and this is my favorite. I can't stress enough to use the filters to dail in your tone. They have a huge effect and can basically tailor the sound any way you need.

Best of the best.

THE ONLY amp sim that translate adequately the sound and the feel (which sets it apart from the others) of the real amp.

Hard to believe

I am an old school guitar player, 5150 with 4x12 cab and that’s how I roll. I never wish even to try a computer program, a fake sound on monitors, a guitar wannabe nerd who thinks he can copy/paste to sound, but what about the soul? What about standing before a roaring amp to feel what you play?? A sound that so perfect you can just mix it as it is?? that was blasphemy for me. Until I was introduced to this one. I tried it, and gods know I wanted to hate so much!!! I would just tell other band mates, “please dont bother me with this fake shit anymore” then in 5 minutes I had to swallow every word! This is just like you play a 5150, only cabinet is in another room, so you hear the sound on monitors. Freaking hell, no other plugin makes me feel like this!! I bought this one, and all other ones until my bank account had to stop me. It is not “amazingly similar”, it is a real amp. Try and feel.

Heavy tones to die for!

Simply the most brutal sounding simulation of an EVH amp. And also the most naturally sounding and reacting one, which I know. To be honest, the only one up to now, which convinced me sonically.

A lot of punch and power, nice, aggressive "straight-into-the-face" tone, but certainly not for everyone.

Great, convincing tones, authentic feeling and reaction of a real tube amp while playing, good built in cabinet selection, but also the IR loader works fine.
