This video shows how to setup Ignite Amps Emissary together with Nad IR Impulse Response Loader in your DAW. I use Reaper but if you’re running another DAW I’m pretty sure what I do here is quite easily transposed into your DAW of choise.
The reason I’m doing this video is because I have gotten various questions about how to get Emissary to work. I hope I have covered enough and in a simple way that is easy to understand! Feel free to ask and I will provide an answer if I can. Same thing if you feel I have missed something or if I could have done it better in anyway – I’m always open for constructive critisism but you will have to live with my Swedish accent! 😉

Ignite Amps – Emissary – Free guitar amp VST by Have Guitar
Taking a stint look at the Ignite Amps Emissary – a free amp simulator that sounds very good according to me. The Emissary is free to download and you just need a digital audio workstation (DAW) to use it, if you haven’t got that Reaper is a good alternative to start with. What is it? It is a VST-plugin that simulates a guitar amplifier – it has one clean and one gain channel and I’d say we’re sniffin around metal territory here… but with some tweaking it surely can be used for other genres as well.
So, this is more of a “let’s see what it can do” video and it’s the first one of it’s kind (for me!) so hopefully I will develop the format as we go along. Feel free to comment about that (yes, just a I said in the video!).
Besides the Emissary I have used a bunch of other plugins to get this to sound (hopefully) better; Kjaerhus Classic compressor and delay, Ignite Amps TSB-1 (Tyrant Screamer, like a Tube Screamer in VST format) and Nadir (cab/IR loader) and Variety of Sounds BootEQMkII. Best of all? They are all good plugins and free to download and use as well!
There you have it, my first dent with some free software for recording guitar – I do hope you’ll like it. Please do subscribe to Have Guitar to gimme some support, that will be appriciated! To all of you who allready do: Thanks!!!
