A continuous quest

A continuous quest

Shortly after we unveiled the Simplifier Classic in September 2019, several other brands came up with very similar products; Nevertheless, the Simplifier sound held strongly, earning an amazing recognition great sales, reviews and powerful end users experiences. So, what made us stand out from the rest? As our CTO Daniel Schwartz once said: We took the right choices.

Anything else? Yes! A Built-In Reverb please!

According to many users, one of the most desired features on the OG Simplifier was a built in reverb, or at least a room control.
 This is why, we heard this call by loading our new Simplifier, with a side- chained digital PLATE reverb.

BLACK CLOUDS: The Ultimate Distortion

AGGRESIVE & ARTICULATED, YET QUIET

AGGRESIVE & ARTICULATED, YET QUIET

Black Clouds is aggressive and articulated, yet it is quiet, due in large part to its X-Gate feature. With a unique amp feel, it can produce some amazing chugs. The noise gate works well for chopping breakdowns.

A PLETHORA OF OPTIONS

A PLETHORA OF OPTIONS

Black Clouds features an extensive and thoughtful control set that includes: Pre Boost: Controls the amount of input boost from 0 to 30dB with a slight mid boost to add definition. Use it if you want to raise the gain and compression when using the boost function. This control is not functional if the pedal is bypassed. Gain: Controls the gain, ranging from crunch to high gain mayhem. Level: Controls the output volume. Master Boost: Sets the amount of output clean boost, from 0 to 20dB. Use it to raise the volume when using the boost function. This control is still functional if the pedal is bypassed and can be used as an independent clean booster. Pre Tone: Use it to balance the amount of high or bottom end entering the drive circuit and compensate for different pickup characteristics for a consistent tone. Clockwise, the low end is reduced, and the top end is enhanced (for tighter, more aggressive chugs). Counterclockwise, the bottom end is enhanced, and the top end reduced (for fatter, fuller single lines). It’s great for finding the right balance of tightness without losing too much body for your pickups. RELEASED THROUGH Bass: Controls the low frequencies below 300hz, +- 10dB Mids: Controls the midrange response, between 300 and 2khz, +-12dB Treble: Controls the high frequencies above 2khz, +-15dB X-Gate Switch: X-gate is a passive noise gate that chops the silent passages instantly. It’s great for Djenty percussive breakdowns. It also adds crossover distortion which adds another layer of texture to the tone.

3 CLASSIC PREAMP

3 CLASSIC PREAMP

Simplifier features a 100% true analog preamp that recreates with obsessive detail the most useful and popular clean channel preamps in the market AC BRIT: Classic AC30 sparkly and tridimensional sound. A true British heritage since the 60's. AMERICAN: Classic blackface deluxe sound. Sweet and dynamic with a balanced response. By far the most used amp on studio recordings MS BRIT: Classic clean-to-crunch vintage plexi style amp. The sound that defined rock music.

GENUINE PASSIVE PREAMP TONE STACK

GENUINE PASSIVE PREAMP TONE STACK

A key part of a tube amp sound and response is the tone stack behavior. The tone stack on the Simplifier is a genuine configurable three band classic amplifier topology, keeping the same feel, response and interaction of the original amp.

POWER AMP SIM

POWER AMP SIM

This stage is an accurate approximation of the interaction between the power tubes, output transformer and global feedback, which produces a particular frequency response for different tubes and speakers. PRESENCE: Controls the hi-mids response just like the feedback based presence control on tube amps. Turn it up to cut through the mix or turn it down to sweeten aggressive distortions. RESONANCE: Controls the low-end and resonance peak caused by transformer-speaker interaction in tube amps. Now you can control the dampening factor and get super tight low-end clarity and authority. POWER TUBES SECTION: 3 way toggle switch that mimic the different response of classic tube types: EL34: Complex mid response with a compressed feel. 6L6: A more open and dynamic response with deeper bass and sparkling highs. KT88: Similar to 6L6 but with improved low-end range, perfect for bass or 7+ strings guitars.

STEREO CABSIM

STEREO CABSIM

Tweakable Cabinet simulator that takes the heritage and experience of ©DSM Noisemaker developing the most useful and innovative cabsims of the market. You can easily dial two independent cabinet simulators panned LEFT - RIGHT with MIC POSITION controls that responds as a real CENTER/OFF AXIS microphone position adjusting the precise amount of high-end roll off you look for. A three way toggle switch allows you to choose independent cabinet STYLE for each side. 1x12 Combo, 2x12 or big 4x12 cabinet simulations that you can combine with any of the 3 preamp voicings, adding an extra dimension to your sound development.

SPREAD CONTROL

SPREAD CONTROL

This unique feature allows you to create a pseudo stereo imaging, by shifting the phase of one channel on selected key frequencies. It will make your sound bigger and 3 dimensional, even if you are using a mono configuration. This spread is useful to get that "dual Cab" sound with realistic physical separation, very useful for recording on a stereo track, or playing with headphones.

The Ultimate Bass Platform

The Ultimate Bass Platform

The new DSM & Humboldt SIMPLIFIER BASS STATION is everything you ever needed to go direct to the FOH or recording amazing bass tones without sacrificing anything.  It includes a Bass Preamp with gain, level, and a 3 band EQ with semi-parametric mid control. A parallel signal routing with a selectable LPF, dual FX loop (for preamp and parallel signal), and an amazing analog cabinet simulation, based on the acclaimed Omnicabsim ® by DSM Noisemaker.

Versatile Preamp Stage

Versatile Preamp Stage

The preamp stage is based on the Ampeg SVT ®. This amp stands out for it’s personality,  versatility and articulation. Including its flexible EQ with +- 15dB per band, and the switchable midrange from 400-900-1500Hz. Across most of the gain settings, the amp is tight and clear. But with higher gains, it will grunt and growl like a real Ampeg SVT does.

A parallel Universe

A parallel Universe

The SIMPLIFIER BASS STATION separates the signal at the input for a parallel line, bypassing the preamp, and including a switchable low pass filter (100Hz, Off, 500Hz). The effect of blending this clean signal with the preamp tone let’s you overdrive the preamp while retaining a huge low end response and natural dynamics.

Cabinet Simulation


Cabinet Simulation


The Cabinet simulation was carefully designed to get the most distinctive cabinet tones. A Closed Back 8x10, with its tight and punchy lows. A vented 1x15 for warm creamy mids and thick lows, and a vented 4x10 for more open, wider range response.  The Speaker color switch, Warm, Bright and Modern, simulates the different materials and geometry of bass speakers, which affects the dynamics and midrange response. And with the Resonance and Mic position controls, you can adjust the exact amount of high end brightness and the cabinet low end resonance you want.

Learn More
Dual effect loop

Dual effect loop

The SIMPLIFIER BASS STATION is the first to include TWO effect loops, so you can use different effects on the main (preamp) and on the parallel signal chain. The sky is the limit here. Try a compressor for the parallel signal, and a chorus on the preamp; or a delay that only repeats the bottom end, or even a volume pedal to control the parallel blend in real time. Use your imagination to get bass tones never heard before!

ALL ABOUT THE MODE

ALL ABOUT THE MODE

The Mode Switch can’t be more useful. The NORMAL mode makes the Silver Lining work as a transparent drive, with sparkly highs and solid low end. The PREAMP mode is perfect to use the unit directly into a power amp without losing the high end, and has extra volume to drive the power amp as loud as you want. And the MID BOOST mode, which boosts the 800hz range and smoothes the highs for an extra warm and round tone.

Learn More
ALL ABOUT THE BOOST.

ALL ABOUT THE BOOST.

The Silver Linings boasts a dual boost function, with pre and master boost levels. Use the Pre Boost for extra gain and compression, and the Master Boost for higher output levels. Using them together, you can place your solos in front of the mix with extra gain, like having a second channel. The Master boost also works independently if the drive is bypassed, allowing to use it to boost your clean signal.

A BRAND NEW TOPOLOGY TO GUARANTEE BOTH: TRANSPARENCY AND LOW NOISE

A BRAND NEW TOPOLOGY TO GUARANTEE BOTH: TRANSPARENCY AND LOW NOISE

The ClearComp is a super transparent compressor with a unique Dynamic Threshold topology engineered and developed by DSM & Humboldt. Most compressors dynamically reduce the gain progressively as the level rises above the threshold. Our DT Topology dynamically modifies the threshold with a fixed gain reduction, achieving a natural and transparent compression effect with a lower noise floor, less coloring and higher dynamic range. A multicolor 5-stage LED bargraph is featured to visualize the resulting envelope level in real time.

CONTROLS

The ClearComp feature a full set of controls: Compression: Controls the input gain of the compressor, hence, the resulting overall compression. Ratio: Adjusts the gain reduction ratio, from slight compression (1:2) to full limiting (1:20). Attack: Controls the attack time, from 5ms for snappy slaps to 100ms for a more natural feel. Release: Adjusts the length of time the gain reduction is applied, from 30ms to 3s. Blend: Blends the compressed signal with the unaffected input signal. Level: Sets the output level of the compressor. Threshold switch: 3 position switch that sets the starting point of the dynamic threshold on either HI MID or LOW. depending on the output level of the instrument being connected, select HI for high power pickups or active instruments, MID for regular output guitar and basses, and LOW for low output instruments, like vintage single coils. FROM SCRATCH, searching for the most versatile and useful drive, that adapts to your playing style and gear, and capable to produce from the sweetest clean jazzy whispers, to the gnarliest of high gain chugs. The range of tones rivals any digital modeler around, but with that immediate response and complex dynamics that only analog circuits can deliver.
