DSM & Humboldt Simplifier Zero Watt Amplifier and Cab Sim Pedal

Zero-watt stereo amplifier/cab simulator featuring all analog direct recording with FX loop

MFR# DSM-SIM

Product Description

Presenting the DSM & Humboldt Simplifier Zero-Watt Amplifier and Cabinet Simulator. Integrate the Simplifier with your pedalboard, adding full stereo routing directly to a PA system, amp, audio interface or anything you need with its 4 simultaneous outputs (2 x XLR, 2 x 1/4 bypassable outs), stereo effects loop, headphones out and aux in.

3 CLASSIC PREAMPS

The Simplifier features a 100% true analog preamp that recreates with obsessive detail the most useful and popular clean channel preamps in the market:

  • AC BRIT: Classic AC30 sparkly and tridimensional sound - a true British heritage since the 60s
  • AMERICAN: Classic blackface deluxe sound - sweet and dynamic with a balanced response, by far the most used amp on studio recordings
  • MS BRIT: Classic clean-to-crunch vintage plexi-style amp - the sound that defined rock music

GENUINE PASSIVE PREAMP TONE STACK

A key part of a tube amp sound and response is the tone stack behavior. The tone stack on the Simplifier is a genuine configurable three-band classic amplifier topology, keeping the same feel, response and interaction of the original amp.

POWER AMP SIM

This stage is an accurate approximation of the interaction between the power tubes, output transformer and global feedback, which produces a particular frequency response for different tubes and speakers.

PRESENCE

Controls the hi-mids response just like the feedback based presence control on tube amps. Turn it up to cut through the mix or turn it down to sweeten aggressive distortions.

RESONANCE

Controls the low-end and resonance peak caused by transformer-speaker interaction in tube amps. Now you can control the dampening factor and get super tight low-end clarity and authority.

POWER TUBES SECTION

3-way toggle switch that mimic the different response of classic tube types:

  • EL34: Complex mid response with a compressed feel
  • 6L6: A more open and dynamic response with deeper bass and sparkling highs
  • KT88: Similar to 6L6 but with improved low-end range, perfect for bass or 7+ strings guitars

STEREO CABSIM

The Simplifier features a Tweakable Cabinet simulator that takes the heritage and experience of ©DSM Noisemaker developing the most useful and innovative cabsims of the market. You can easily dial two independent cabinet simulators panned LEFT - RIGHT with MIC POSITION controls that responds as a real CENTER/OFF AXIS microphone position adjusting the precise amount of high-end roll off you look for.

A three-way toggle switch allows you to choose independent cabinet STYLE for each side. 1x12 Combo, 2x12 or big 4x12 cabinet simulations that you can combine with any of the 3 preamp voicings, adding an extra dimension to your sound development.

SPREAD CONTROL

This unique feature allows you to create a pseudo-stereo imaging, by shifting the phase of one channel on selected key frequencies. It will make your sound bigger and 3 dimensional, even if you are using a mono configuration. This spread is useful to get that "dual Cab" sound with realistic physical separation, very useful for recording on a stereo track, or playing with headphones.

UNLIMITED ROUTING FEATURING:

STEREO EFFECTS LOOP

Connect your drive/comp/pitch effects section to the input preamp, then send your signal to your favorite stereo effects as delays and ambient reverbs and take advantage of a true stereo signal routing connecting through the return jacks that sends the signal to POWER AMP SIM and STEREO CABINET, Just like if you are using two amps!

4 SIMULTANEOUS OUT + HEADPHONES/AUX IN

2 balanced XLR + 2 bypassable 1/4 plug outs allows you to send your signal up to 4 different devices. SIMPLIFIER is ideal to any environment as recording sessions with both, real amps and sound interfaces or just to have fun practicing with full stereo regulable headphones out and a very useful AUX input to connect your phone, tablet, computer or any audio device.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
