In my search for a great Marshall amp emulation, I, fortunately, happened upon the new Spark plug-in. I immediately knew, and felt in my hands, that this software was exactly what I was looking for: responsive, highly configurable and, like my vintage Marshalls, authentic! My search has ended!
Marco Sfogli – James LaBrie, PFM, Icefish
I'm seriously impressed by the sound and quality of the whole Mercuriall suite of plugins. Having the ability to faithfully recreate all the nuances and also the look and ease of use from their hardware counterparts is simply priceless. Thanks for making such wonderful stuff!

I regularly incorporate amp sims into my workflow but Mercuriall is definitely doing something quite different. This is the first plug-in I've used that feels, sounds and reacts like my real amps. All 3 (Reaxis, 530, Spark) are truly convincing and a joy to play through. They have already become a staple in my daily work.
Sergey "Teria" Terentyev - Arteria, GlossyTeria
For me, Mercuriall products is the result of diligent work of people who know and care for the sound. The simulation strikes with the sound realism and its natural dynamics. I am very glad that their highest quality software allows me to get an instant result and save time, which is extremely important for the creative process.
Yury Melisov - Epidemia
We've been using various plugins during shows for many years, so there was something to compare Mercuriall products with. I can tell you with confidence that Mercuriall software models the amps' characteristics in the most precise way and i suitable not only for shows, but also in studio.

I'm a tone snob who loves vintage guitar tones, yet I also love modern technology like amp modeling. This juxtaposition ignited a passion of mine to keep up to date with the latest amp modeling products. So when I heard about Mercuriall's Spark, I had to try it out right away. Honestly, from the first chord that I played, I was completely blown away by the amount of detail, responsiveness and raw attitude Spark provides! Mercuriall has raised the bar of amp modeling.
Ronnie Björnström - Aeon, Cut Up, Sorcerer (as a Sound Engineer)
The Spark is everything i need for that classic British Hi-Gain guitar tone! As a producer and mixing engineer i´v come across many different Marshall amps and Mercuriall has just nailed the tone and feel of the real thing. Don’t bother bringing your Marshalls to the studio next time ;-)
John Bart Van Der Wal - Dool, Aborted; Napalm Death (as a FOH engineer)
Playing alot of new and oldschool tube amps in my bands and recordings, im always slightly skeptical about most amp and cab sims, since you always miss alot of real tube and transformator push/presence, and especially responsiveness, which Mercuriall, as one of the first for me seem to have gotten down. Love everything from the free JCM800 preamp to Spark
Ivan Demichev - Lehmann, Oratoria; Dark Tranquility (Video Crew)
I tested each VST product for guitars on the market since the beginning of developing this technology. But when I tested U530 and then Mercuriall Spark my mind was changed: finally, now it's time to believe... To believe in digital sound that could be real replacement for tube technologies especially for the studio! Thanks Mercuriall, that's awesome!
Alex Chichikailo - Check the Distortion, Inside the Flames
I’m not a big fan of VST Amp sims, but Mercuriall stuff is not the plugins – it’s a miracle! All you need is just your interface and your computer and Mercurial can turn it into a tube amp. If you’re a fan of Marshalls then SPARK is your choice, if you need the sound with tons of high gain you need a Tube Amp Ultra 530. Once you try these things and you will never use another VST amp sims.
Serga Kasinec - Composer/Artist/Producer
I had spent years and years in search of the right sound and only when I came across Mercuriall had I finally understood that for me there would be no way back. It’s everything any musician can ever dream of in terms of sound. It offers unlimited possibilities, satisfies your every whim. If you can think of it, Mercuriall’s got it.
Leon Todd - Ragdoll
Mercuriall's amp simulations let me recreate the tones, and more importantly, the feel of my favorite tube heads and rack gear in my DAW. The user interface is particularly well thought out and is flexible enough to handle re-amping, IR loading and effects processing, and I love the tactile nature of the built in speaker simulations. Most importantly I can spend less time tweaking and more time playing and writing music.
Tramaine – Solo artist
With the first strum of a simple chord, the depth and dimensionality that Mercuriall plugins present is quite hard to believe. I have always relied on the natural response of an amp to work with my playing - Mercuriall amps do this brilliantly and have become an important part of my creative arsenal.
Eric Meyer - The Noiz Faktory studio
When I opened up the U530 I was immediately blown away by the sound that I got without any tweaking. As I played the other products I quickly realized Mercuriall Audio would be a go to series of amps in the studio. When I do work at other studios I feel handicapped when I don't have my Mercuriall Audio amps available to me. Simply put...THESE AMPS ARE AWESOME!
Demetrio “Dimitry” Scopelliti - "Dimitry", "Arcadia", Scopelliti Studio
Finally a series of plugins which allows me to have the same sound of a great amp using no extra time for tweaking or mix. Mercuriall Audio is the right choice for those who want to deliver a great product in a very short time, Reaxis is making everyday Christmas.
Luke Gallagher - Country/Rock/Pop guitarist
I’m super glad to be working with Mercuriall Audio. It’s not easy finding amp modelling that not only can replicate overdriven tones to an incredible standard, but cleaner tones for genres like country music. Its particularly important for country tele players like myself to have amp modelling that reacts the same as an amp and maintains the intricacies of a tele. You need that string noise, pop and twang. You can't hide behind gain in this genre, so to have cleaner tones hold up digitally is exactly what I’m after. Well worth a look.
Jordan Guthrie - Gone Cold, Remission, Cold Embrace
Mercuriall has done an incredible job creating realistic amp simulators that you can quickly get a great tone with. Spark is by far one of my favorite amp simulators that I've ever used. After cranking up the volume and gain on the JCM 800 model, I was blown away by how closely the plugin reacted compared to the real thing.
Andras Szvirida - composer & artist
My idea was to fit my studio into my backpack. I've tried a lot of plugins, amp simulators, and I grew tired of having to compromise in each case. Mercuriall impressed me! Simple handling, great design and awesome, brutal sound! Moreover, it feels like a real tube amplifier! After trying the SS-11X, I understood that there would be no way back for me! I've been using it ever since! I sincerely recommend Mercuriall to everyone!
Neno Fernando - MAESTRA, Eterna, Portrait
When I first tested the Mercuriall plugins I was impressed by the quality and definition of the plugins. Nowadays Mercuriall plugins are mandatory in my mixes, both on guitars and in other instruments such as contrabass, acoustic guitars, voices and more. Quality and definition has name, Mercuriall.
Chloe Bray - Sojourner
Mercuriall's amp sims have allowed me to maintain authentic, dynamic guitar tones in a portable studio setting, to the extent that I'm in no hurry to return to real amps. These are the only plug-ins that can deliver the huge sound that metal guitarists need, and feel as satisfying to play as the real thing.
Mike Lamb - Sojourner
I've tried almost every amp sim on the market, often happy with the result but never fully satisfied, until I discovered the U530. It was everything I had been looking for: dynamic, responsive, and realistic. Since then, with both Spark and ReAxis, they have become my go-to for both Sojourner and any other project that I work on at my studio. I can't recommend Mercuriall highly enough! Nobody else even comes close.
Alex Vazco - Alex Berserker / Tom & Collins / Opus Safari Audio
I've used Mercuriall products in most of my productions, from TV to Sports Anthems to EDM and everything in between and I've loved them each time, now we have a full family of the most realistic Amp Modelers in the market, and not only do they sound great, they feel and respond as they should, there is no comparison.
Roman Arsafes - Kartikeya, Arsafes, Hellrune
Mercuriall plugins are definitely one of the best, if not THE best ampsims in the software amp domain of today! The realism, response and overall tone are just stellar, and you can almost not tell the difference with the real thing in an A/B test. And with me being a big Marshall fan, the «Spark» is actually my number one go-to tone for all of my in-the-box mixes!
Jen Ascending - musician/producer
Throughout many many years, I was looking for a perfect sound to my music, I was trying so many things, but nothing satisfied me about the sound that I wanted to get. I met Mercuriall and I get what I was looking for, with their amazing plugins and their real sound, so warm and powerful. I got a perfect tone for my songs. I absolutely recommend Mercuriall amps and their awesome products!
Damir Puh – solo artist
Using amp sim plugins, in my experience, has always been a compromise between tone and flexibility. Luckily, Mercuriall took the plugin game to a whole new level, so going DI is now an artistic, rather than logistics decision. Getting big, fat & open DI tones that feel natural under your fingers has never been easier, and no one does it better than Mercuriall.
Thiago Oliveira - Warrel Dane/Confessori/Seventh Seal/Solo artist
As soon as I got to try out the Mercurial plugins, I was instantly in awe. Aggressive, organic and mix ready tones that instantly blew me away coupled with an intuitive layout that I was able to tweak into a multitude of killer guitar sounds.
Rafael Pacheco - Metal Vrau, Untrusted
I finally have the guitar sound I always wanted! My productions have leveled up exponentially, due to their practical, intuitive and versatile way to achieve the sound that I have always looked for in other plug-ins. Without a doubt, Mercuriall is ahead of what we have today in the Plug-Ins market.
Kyle 7K - September Circle, Derek James
I was spoiled by the sound of the Triaxis years ago and owned several, nothing ever sounded as good to me. People often describe guitar simulators with terms like "almost real." ReAxis IS real. This is as good and natural sounding as my best Triaxis. All my other amp simulator software is going to feel neglected.
Alexander "Äxxl" Stöcker - Stallion
I've been a fan of Mercuriall's work since the very beginning. The plugins just felt and played better than anything else I've ever tried. The release of Spark is yet another milestone and really makes you feel that wall of roaring Marshalls behind you. Now I'm actually a little disappointed every time I track my real amps haha.
Space Primates - Lunchmoney Lewis, Reggie & Bollie, Kevin Hart (as Produces)
We use Mercuriall Spark and the U530 pretty much exclusively for all of our guitars. It has been so helpful to us to finally have a plugin that really does sound like an Amp while still having the versatility of a plugin. Couldn't recommend trying Mercuriall products enough!
Jimi - ToxicWaltz
When I got in touch with Mercuriall's amp simulations I was blown away by the authenticity, the dynamics and the natural feeling of responses which usually only a real tube amp can give to you. With their products they surely show how amp simulations should be done nowadays - very well structured, easy to use and the sound definitely speaks for itself.
