Blue Cat Audio Axiom Amp Simulation Audio Plug-in Software

Bringing amp simulation to the small screen, Axiom provides two amp channels, hundreds of presets, and effects that will have you tweaking for days!

Blue Cat's Axiom is a powerful and open multi-effects processor and amp simulation software for guitar and bass. Based on the acclaimed Destructor plug-in for amp simulations, Axiom offers an infinite number of exceptional tones for your axe.

Axiom includes two amp simulations channels (with pre and post effects) that can be mixed together or used alternatively like a real amp. You can choose your amp models from hundreds of presets or launch the amp editor to build your own, with complete control over the tone. Additional input and master sections let you adjust the tone at the input and the output of Axiom, with 4 additional effect slots each and an integrated high precision tuner. A brick wall limiter also protects the output from overshoot.

Blue Cat's Axiom is not limited to its built-in effects: these slots can also host third-party Audio Unit, VST, or VST3 plug-ins: you can use your favorite plug-ins anywhere in the signal chain and expand Axiom's capabilities.

And because playing alone is not so much fun, Blue Cat has added a tools section with 3 additional slots to load virtual instruments: add a metronome, a drum machine, sequencer, or your keyboardist's favorite synthesizer there to get it mixed with your guitar.

If you are looking for amp simulation software without the effects, see the Destructor plug-in. For a plug-in host & multi-effects processor without amp simulation, check out Blue Cat's PatchWork.
