* Some of our customers reported that Ampbox under-performs in Studio One and Ableton Live. Observations show that these DAWs do not offer optimal multi-threading experience, which is required to run our next-gen modeling engine. If you run Studio One or Ableton Live and still wish to purchase Ampbox, we highly recommend extensive testing of the Demo version.
