What actual hardware was modeled?

The "Faux-Tin" pedal was modeled after a popular modded version of the TS-808.

The amplifier was modeled after the signature app of one of the most well known thrash metal guitarists of all time. This amp, known for its "BEAST" mode, is a fire breathing monster that lives up to that name. Don't let that fool you, though, this amp offers a wide range of tones, not just the super chunky metal tones.

Will this work with my DAW?

Currently, The King will work in most DAWs including Logic, Reaper, Cubase, Pro Tools, etc.

System Requirements?

• macOS Monterey (v12) or greater
• Intel or M based chip (we recommend at least 4 cores)

• Windows 10 or greater
• Most CPUs with at least 4 cores should suffice. If you run into issues and increasing your buffer size doesn't fix it, you likely won't be able to run this software at this time. We're always looking to improve performance so there may be a future update that performs better on older, less powerful, CPUs.
