The Most Savage ENGL
The ENGL roster of amps features a multitude of bonecrushers — but the Savage 120 reigns over all for its unabashedly modern aggressiveness and punch. Its fast attack coupled with intense crunch and face-melting distortion tones have made it a weapon of mass destruction in the studio and on stage.
Fierce, but Flexible
The ENGL Savage 120 plug-in expertly models the amp’s four channels, dual three-band EQ, and tone shaping tools like Depth Boost, Rough/Smooth, Contour, and Presence, giving you total control of your tones.
Savage FX Rack
The ENGL Savage 120 plug-in offers additional control over your tones via the Brainworx FX Rack. It features a Noise Gate, Vintage Delay, switchable high and low-pass filters, and a Power Soak circuit that allows you to dial in as much overdrive as you want, without having to crank the output gain.
The ENGL Savage 120 plug-in also includes 100 impulse response Recording Chains that were perfectly captured from several boutique cabinets and recorded through Brainworx's vintage Neve console with an array of high-end and vintage microphones and outboard gear, giving you "record ready" tones, instantly.
Unison™ Technology for Authentic ENGL Tones
The interaction of your guitar’s pickups to an amp’s front end is crucial to capturing the tone and feel of the amplifier. With UA’s Unison technology, Apollo user's guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they’re plugged into an ENGL Savage 120 — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.
“The ENGL Savage 120 plug-in is just
perfect for high quality home recording.”
