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!

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.

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 ;-)

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
