Apfx Audio Primo v1.1.4 [WIN]
The soul of PRIMO is a boutique handmade Italian amp, but forget about circuit modeling and static tone snapshots, this is something else. In our vision, the analog tube amplifier is just the starting point, the pencil drawing behind a colorful painting. Our AI, learning from the “real thing”, has crafted two beautiful channels: CH1 for everything from cleans to juicy edge-of-breakup tones, and CH2 for roaring crunch tones and searing leads.

INPUT LEVEL? EASY!
Adjust the input gain control to keep the average input level in the green region of the input meter, this will let PRIMO shine and perform at its best!
Meters color will help you: blue meter? Turn the input gain up. Hitting the red? Calm down, your signal is too hot!
DIFFERENT SOUND, SAME LOUDNESS
No difference in loudness between channels or gain levels: while adjusting the gain the volume won’t change, and neither it will when switching between channels.
Say goodbye to annoying volume changes!
WHAT IF AI COULD DESIGN GUITAR AMPLIFIERS?
Well, they actually can. Our Neural Network has listened to several, carefully dialed in, guitar tones made with our reference tube amplifier.
PRIMO CH1 and CH2 are what we call Dynamic Portraits, and they are the product of the learning process our AI has gone through. Explore all their sonic facets by sweeping the Gain knob, and refine your sound with the musical and versatile 3-band EQ provided!
Straightforward, transparent but musical, the perfect choice to add punch and sustain to your tone!
Transparent, versatile and no-nonsense. Use it as a standalone drive on top of CH1 or as a boost on CH2!

Choose between a colorful and modulated analog delay or a crisp and pristine digital delay, either mono or stereo. The sync function allows you to automatically set the delay tempo at the bpm of the project, one less thing to worry about!
Add depth and tridimensionality to your tone with this sweet plate reverb. Thanks to its single knob layout it will be easy to find the perfect ambience for your sound. You’ll never turn it off!
No unwanted noise thanks to the smart and musical built-in noise gate. Set the threshold and it will keep your tracks clean and defined.
Input and output gains let you control the level of your signal before and after processing. Remove unwanted low-frequency rumbling and high-frequency harshness with the high and low-cut filters.
Neat, fast and highly accurate. Set the reference pitch, mute or unmute and tune your guitar as you wish: our chromatic tuner does not fear dropped/open tunings, 7/8 strings guitars or even basses!
