This red amp is a beast!!! I overlooked this amp as I didn't really know what this was... and then I decided to check it out and try the demo. The analog tube sound, the saturation, the overdrive harmonics, the fuzz, the whole amp, headroom, feel and sounds like a true amp! I am stunned by this brand Chandler, and I didn't know they make Chandler recreations of the EMI consoles from Abbey Road Studios. This amp company should be getting way more recognition, too bad it's boutique, but for me it's like a diamond in the rough. Gold!!! And the price of $99 is a killer deal even when compared to the other "major brand" amp plug-ins out there! You will be blown away.

I keep reaching for this beauty, because it sounds different than most amps sims. It is not the usual heavy metal monster, but offers beautiful clean and crunch tones much better/more natural in my ears than a lot of others. I needed some exploration to get used to it (no volume knob, drastic behaviour to "subtle" changes on knobs) and it is indeed also capable of insane overdrives/lead sounds, in short: if you are a fan of classic rock or blues or old school independent music or dinosaur jr feedback and noise orgies: try this one! It feels like a real amp.
A lot of amp(s)
Due to the numerous tweaking options this in some way are a lot of different amps in a single box. Also due the all the options not every setting automatically sounds great, but if you know what to do, you can get a lot of different, excellent tones out of it.

Best amp sim I've ever used - I can get every clean, crunch, and lead tone I need for a wide variety of music. From clean to heavy rock - it does EVERYTHING. Brilliant!
I but this on the back of an Engl plugin purchase that I was really impressed with. To say this was even better than that is an understatement. True it’s a completely different style of amp but it works so well with various guitars, other plugins and especially surprisingly with preamp pedals. It really sounds alive and has character which has to be experienced to be believed. It may appear simple but it rewards exploration and subtle tweaks. Unlike many other amp plugins from other manufacturers it just works straight away, no fuss, no bother, and plays well with others. It also draws surprising little CPU usage.
Chandler crunchy clean!

Phenomenal in the blues/rock style! The crunchy clean that you can produce, ether for soloing or rhythm sound is cool! Not to mention that it sounds so warm and creamy, something truly amazing for a plugin! :)

Thanks so much for this Guys. I've had my eyes on it for some time, just couldn't make the deal. Finally, after years of waiting you put it on sale, I think for the first time? I got it man. Love, love, love this emulation. In the pocket, Dude. Such a Cool GUI.
great, full sound
ok, i also have too many amp sims...but this is another go-to, for a really rich and full sound. brainworx does their usual fantastic job of translating the sound of tubes, transformers, and speakers into the digital realm where on headphones and studio speakers i feel like i'm playing a real, responsive amp, and it sits in a mix like a charm. i use sounds from clean to crunchy to heavy with this one.
