A go-to legend for punishing metal tones.

The Savage 120 Amplifier embodies ENGL’s rich legacy of punishing metal machines. A favorite of Exodus’ Gary Holt, as well as Dimmu Borgir, Sodom, and Primal Fear, the ENGL Savage 120 has metal bonafides to spare.

Developed by Brainworx, and available exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces, the ENGL Savage 120 Amplifier plug-in is an exacting emulation of this beastly, standard-bearing tone monster.

Now You Can:

Track through the ferocious ENGL Savage 120 amp with near-zero latency on your Apollo-equipped workstation

Shape tones further with FX Rack’s Vintage Delay, noise gate, high/low filters, and more

Perfectly sculpt ultra-aggressive metal sounds with a bevy of onboard tone-shaping tools

Audition 100 different high-end Recording Chains with a premium selection of mics, cabinets, and outboard gear

The Most Savage ENGL

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

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

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

So Savage

If I need something brutal and heavy I found my solution

Flexible and tons of features

While this is marketed to the metal side of things, there is actually just a ton of flexibility here; I think you could get any tone you wanted from it. Built-in delay, noise gate, power attenuator, loads of cabs -- I think if you're going to buy one, this is the one, as it's hard to think of a need that it couldn't meet for you.

I have the Marshall bundle which I love but when I need that gated metal tone Engl definitely delivers. You can also dial in other tones with great results. Well done !

Simply great

Love it, authenticate is the word. It’s really an amp that does it all. Sure it has the metal tones but it’s got rock and hard rock written all over it. Very versatile. Spot on mic’d goodness when you can’t mic an amp.

My favorite virtual guitar amp.

Ive bought a couple so far, but I've used the UAD demo for each of the amps more then once for either quick mixing or deciding something to purchase. This one just came out, and I tried it, and almost immediately bought it. At least for heavier music this so far is my favorite and I'm really happy about the purchase.

Tone Under control

I was either using Guitar Rig5 and then fixing the sound with analog plugins but it never felt right to me, like there were undertones missing from a real head and cabinet. I used one track I had this set up before and Used the Engl with the LA2A silver and wow, the tone is much warmer yet so open. I am so glad I took a chance on this plugin

Amazing Emulation

You can get a lot of tones out of just this one amp, and the Unison enabled pres on the Apollo make it behave like a real amp. Totally sold on this one.

Incredible all-around heavy sounding amp!

The tone of this plugin made me want to play all day. Tight high gain overdrive, and so many tweaks to get it just the way you like. Sounds as good as most real amps miked!

Good sounding emulation

Unison enabled. Sounds good. Quite flexible - you can switch off the pre-amp, the power-amp and the cabinet/mic impulses. The mic blending would have been a very welcome feature (like Marshall emulations have).

90s Grunge Sound

Great Amp with a good grunge sound of the 90s. Really useful in my setup, with the Ampeg B15N ---- okay its not the original Sound of Kurt Cobain but i love it. Mikel (MIDNIGHTSUMMERGREEN)
