    Very excited for this. I know you said info is coming soon, but is Spark going to emulate a specific Marshall or is it more of a general sound? Also, is that the TSC integrated into the UI at the top, left corner? That would be rad.

    @Old Man Doom Ohh, you posted some good questions =)
    Spark will include... let's say, not just one amp. And yes, we modeled specific model(s).

    TSC - cannot confirm or deny at this point :D You will know very soon!

    Mercuriall Audio Software announces new guitar amp sim “Spark”!

    Spark is a VST/AU/AAX plugin that models four Marshall® tube amplifiers, four guitar cabinets, four overdrive pedals and a set of the most common spatial effects.
    Spark is the realization of all our latest achievements in the field of real-time electric circuits modeling. First of all, it’s a tube push-pull power amplifier that is working with a reactive load (guitar cabinet), with negative feedback and electric feed chains. This allowed us to implement a truly realistic poweramp saturation (very important for the majority of the Marshall®-based amps), realistic work of the Presence knob and made possible to take into account the influence of the output and power transformers.

    We have considerably improved the cabinet section. Apart from the smooth positioning of microphones, we added an option to mix sound of two mics. This allows you to find pretty much any desired sound. There are four cabs and three microphones at your disposal.

    Despite the fact that Spark is an amp and cab sim above all, we gave a lot of attention to the FX section. There is a Noise Gate at the input, as well as a number of pedals: there are currently four overdrives, implemented with our proprietary technology of the electric chain modeling. As for the spatial effects - there are Chorus, Delay and Reverb.

    Spark’s UI continues our approach of simple usability at no expense to a wide functionality. All main actions require just a single click. We pay a lot of attention to the design, that passes a lot of iterations of adjustments and improvements, offering you a very simple and functional solution.

    Spark is planned to be released in Q4 2016.

    Price
    Will be announced later.

    @Astrikos Valid request.
    What clips do you think would be best:
    1. Raw, non processed guitars, no mix
    2. Mixed guitars, bass and drums
    3. Polished everything
    4. Your option? =)

    I like hearing it in a mix with brief breaks to demonstrate the raw sound.

    Alright. I'll come up with a short sample.

    I have a sample of clean sound (JCM800 with chorus/reverb/delay), need to check with other guys if it is OK to post it =)
