Amp sim software, but entirely customizable. Mix and match your own heads and cabinets, etc. Even "rewire" your heads for all those funky mods that some people like to do.

Yeah sorry disarm, we are not at the point where we can develop for MAC yet.. We're still a small company and just don't have the resources or time to do it yet. Maybe soon though..

Here is the official testing info..

For you to get the most out of this, please take a few minutes and read what I have here.

Installing HC ..
If you are expecting to simply copy a DLL to a folder, then you will be disappointed. Head Case MUST be installed. The installation program creates supporting files and folders that head case relies on. If they are not there, then it will not run.

-The installation program will ask you to select a folder to install to. This should be your VST plugins folder. The HC install program will ALWAYS add a folder called AcmeBarGig to the folder you select. The AcmeBarGig folder is part of the program and must be there.

-You will be asked whether to create a desktop icon for installing heads. Although you don't have to, it would be easier if you did because our documentation assumes that you have this shortcut.

-If you have any other ABG head case apps, like iFace OR Head Case complete installed, then you need to ensure that you install to a different path.So when asked, simply add a folder name to the install to path, the installer will then use that and Append \AcmeBarGig to it.

Safety
-Although we are pretty much finished with development, just to be safe, you should make a backup copy of the AcmeBarGig folder before installing if you have any other Head case apps installed.


This version does not come with any heads installed, so upon running it, you may be met with a blank head. Thats ok, you just need to install some heads. There is a list of heads that you can download and install at your leisure..

Installing a head
First a little background...
In head case builder, once you have designed your fantabulous, ultra cool head you can make a distribution of that head so that you can share it with others. Under file operations in the Head Case Builder you'll find a Make button. That button runs an external program that gathers all your head settings, graphics, and custom curves. It then compresses them inside a JPG graphics file. That graphics file can be placed on a forum where others can download it.

Here is an actual amp file.

This file contains all of the required elements to install the Guillotine head into your head case just by dropping it onto the Install Head Icon.

To install these files, typically you would download an image like the above and save it to your local hard drive. You can then either drag and drop the image onto the install head icon on your desktop, or you can run the install head program directly from your start menu.


1)
You can simply download a head image by right clicking it and selecting save as. (Save it to a known place on your HDD)

Particulars..
If you have dropped a file onto the install head icon then this step does not need to be performed. If you open the install head utility from the start menu, or by double clicking the desktop icon, step 1 has to be done. This allows you to select the file you want to install.

2) Where is the head to be installed to? (dioes not apply to head case LITE)
This is where you select what category (folder) to install the head to. It will default to the first category in the list. If you add or remove categories, they will also be represented in the category list.

3) This installs the head into the chosen category. Head case lite always installs to HeadCaseLite Category.

Selecting a head in head case..

1) This button shows ther File Operations screen. This is where heads are loaded, saved, and where distributions are made.

2) This is the file type selector. Heads that are installed will show up when you select "Installed Head". For heads that have not been made into distributions yet, they are considered as templates. So the next logical question is, why is there a difference, why not just have them all the same. This is so that you can work on a head without overwriting the original. Head Case builder only saves as templates which keeps the original downloaded head intact. You may want to refer back to it again later.

Snapshots...(SNAPSHOTS HAVE BEEN REMOVED IN VERSION 1.51 UNTIL AFTER THE OFFICIAL RELEASE. Look for them in around version 1.6)
The third selection on the list is snapshots. Snapshots are sequentially saved head templates. So as you are working, you come across a sound you like, you can save a snapshot of it which stores the head at that stage of development. When you save a snap shot of the head again, it saves the head at the new stage in development. They are stored as Snapshot 1, Snapshot 2, etc. Here is where it can get a little confusing. A folder is created for evey head you take a snapshot of. So if you were working on HonkenII, A folder called HonkenII would be created and all snapshots of HonkenII would be stored there. When you want to load a snapshot, a listing of all the snapshot folders appears under the snapshot button. When you click one of those folders, the snapshot files appear in the file list. This is essentially the same as choosing a category, which we'll talk about now.

Selecting a category..(Only applies to Head Case complete, head case lite does not have a category option)
#3 is the file list display. This is where you select a file to load. Directly above the file list roughly in the center is the category drop down selector. If you installed a head into American Style for example, then you select the American Style category, and the installed heads button. Voila, the head you installed is in the list.

All the category selector does is change the folder thats being displayed in the file list, all the buttons do is change the filetype thats being displayed. This is exactly the same mechanism as snapshots. The list that appears on the bottom of the snapshots button(when its pressed), is just a list of folders where you have taken snapshots of heads. The snapshot folders are named after the head. I could have moved that mechanism to the Category drop down, but I didn't for two reasons. First is I think it would get pretty confusing, second and most important is the number of folders that would have to be displayed in the drop down could be too many. Which brings me to #4

#4 is are page sliders. If you have too many heads or snapshot folders to be displayed on one page, then you can navigate to the next page by sliding this..

WARNING:
Be careful with external equipment levels with head case as it might cause volume spikes. This should only apply to making changes in the builder, but, this is a test, so be careful in the suite as well. Head Case always turns on its limiter when you load a head or preset to attempt a safegard against volume spikes, but the best safety measure is for you to make sure external equiipment levels are low to begin with.. Just be careful as you assume all the risks...


http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7630363/Rel...LITE%201.53.zip

Here are some heads for you to install, and I'm pretty sure there will be other users sharing their creations as well.

MAHAKALI example recorded by yours truly..
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7630363/For...ThingMaster.mp3


Quarter Example recorded by yours truly..Only the clean guitar is using Quarter, the dirty guitar is using Skull Job.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7630363/For...etAMastered.mp3


Guillotine example recorded by yours truly..
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7630363/For...lops3Master.mp3


Skull Job R1 used only on the solo for this track. This was a stem that was Mixed by Dalton. Unfortunately I don't know who the artist is right now but I will find out in order to give them credit for this great piece. I believe Dalton used his Detonator Amp on this track as well(Detonator is aso a head case head).
Anyways, I only recorded the solo using Skull Job at around 1:27
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7630363/For...rackSoloJam.mp3

So right click on any of these images and save them to your hard drive in a known spot. Then following the head installation instructions above.
There is 10 more heads by Rock Axe available here
http://www.guitarampmodeling.com/vi...hp?f=92&t=16130

For support, some of you might find it easier to use Face book, we have a dedicated head case group there.
There is usually someone online there that can answer your questions immediately through the face book chat utility..


UPDATE MAY 06 2012
I thought bthat you guys might want to give these a run as well. These are the stand alone executables for head case lite. Note however, they are not officially supported from us(ABG)...
Just copy these into the same folder as the head case builder and head case suite DLL files..
It will be
[Your Selected install folder]/Acmebargig/HeadCase
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7630363/Rel...aseLITEexes.rar
Enjoy..

There is one notable error that is holding up our official release. When using Filter cabs, some have reported a what they call a wobbly noise. That is low in volume and frequewncy and builds in volume. Please let me know if you get that and what your steps were to get it.

Thank you for your time and interest
-Ken

Yeah those are all user creations done in a little over a week. Mostly by MastermindJacard if I'm correct? That impressed the hell out of me, that guy's got a great ear.

I was kind of expecting someone here to jump on the head building process too.

This is way cool. Waiting for the site to come back up so I can download it. I'll probably make a custom amp for my studio to impress the people who come in

Cool, well something to remember is you'll be the only person in the world with that head. Unless I can talk you into sharing it with me.. haha I've become an amp junkie!

Here's the download link
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7630363/Rel...LITE%201.53.zip

One more thing to note..
I have an error report about the Head Case suite being really really loud. This is because while I was testing the LIMITER on it I multiplied the overall volume output by 100 and forgot to put it back to normal. which is multiplied by 1. So its 100 times louder than it should be! So you need to be careful with that, and also know that it will not sound correct because the limiter will catch the volume and hold it back. Just turn the levels down low and turn off the limiter. If you get clipping with the limiter off then turn them down until you don't.

Thats only on Head Case sute, the Head Case builder is not affected.. it runs as it should..

Finally got a chance to try this - I'm actually very surprised with the amps I liked the most.

Out of the custom ones in the thread you linked, my favorites were:

Marshall 2555
Framus Cobra (Black)
Sunn Model T

There were some other cool amps in there, but they all sounded similar to either the 2555 or the Cobra, and both those amps did it better for me. A lot of the amps people posted were really low in volume compared to the others, so I feel like they didn't really get a proper assessment, since I wasn't about to attempt to adjust levels between each of them. We all know that the louder something is, the "better" it sounds to our ears. I felt like the Herbert could've been cool, but in volume, it was much lower output than the Cobra, which made comparing the two difficult. I liked the boosted version of nearly all of the models, better than the normal version.

The 2555 just has this surgical tightness that has a lot of chunk in the lowend, but still plenty of grind to make it really tight on palm mutes. I've tried a 2555 before, and this model honestly sounds nothing like the one I tried, but I don't care, it sound ****ing epic

The Cobra was the best of the modern high gain sounds to me. Very similar to the Framus Cobra I used to own, in fact. Less harsh in the high end, but overall, the lowend is pretty similar, as is the mid range. Some of the other high gain models were a bit bassy for my tastes, and they also had a weird midrange. I thought I was going to love the Rivera model, since I love the one I had a while back, but it sounds like it has a blanket over it, which is definitely not typical of a real Rivera.

The Model T was probably the most unique of them all. I didn't get a chance to really test out the lower gain models, but the Model T model was actually fairly close to the Reissue head I had a while back (on the modern setting). Cool edge of breakup sound, while still sounding huge. I dig it!


Definitely excited about this. I haven't heard a software modeler that can really beat TSE's X50 for me, since it came out. I've tried the AcmeBarGig stuff before, and while a lot of it was cool, it wasn't something I'd use every day. These tones I got straight off from the amps on Headcase, I'm very pleased with! Going to have to try through them in a mix tomorrow and see if it might just replace X50 as my go-to!

Thanks for checking it out..
A couple things I want to point out..

Those heads for download were created by an ordinary user with less than a week on head case. Actually some of them were probably made while he only had hours on the software.
-and-
They were made by ear.
One of the hard things is settling on terminology, since nothing like head case exists (AFAIK). So we have a tendency to call these models, when in fact they cannot be called that. IMO most models available now can't truly even be called models either, but thats as whole other subject. When we imply the word model, we mean that every component in the head has been examined and custom software has been written for it. This is not at all the way in which head case works, if it did, there would be very few people who could actually use it to make heads. The vast majority of guitarists may know a little about schematics, but don't know enough to design them. So the idea of providing a 100% custom modeler went out the window. Instead we have base components that you may see in some models that have properties to adjust. The behavior of those base models is encapsulated inside the code. The user simply adjusts those properties to create their Virtual Amp. Thats the terminology, at least for now we have settled on 'Virtual Amp'. So, these heads are the user's rendition of a head based on their ear. Although there are parts where actual values can be used, design is mostly done by ear making head case builder accessible to a much wider audience.

The skins and branded logos..
Although we discourage using these types of skins, we do not have any control over what a user wants to skin their virtual amp to look like. After all, its their creation. That would be like Microsoft telling you what images you can use in a word document. Maybe more accurately, it would be like them telling you that you could not quote from Moby Dick, or some other material. Obviously, they have no control what you do in MS Word, and we have no control over what you do in Head Case. Its your creation.

Having said that, the idea that a particular head does not sound right is a welcome thought. No I'm not being funny, I'm serious. The whole premise behind head case is to have a community involved in the creation of tools they use to fuel their passion. So, the hoipe for me, is that when someone releases a head, and someone thinks its not quite right, they in turn make an edit to that head and release it. Someone else gets the head and they think something else is not quite right, they make an edit. So the head will evolve with the input of community. Hopefully resulting in smething amazing..

Having said that I encourage you to play around inside the head case builder with the heads you do like to see roughly what the settings look like. We spent literally months trying to make the builder easy to use. So don't be shy.. haha

The variety of sounds..
There is only 5 root templates available. Root templates are templates that have been provided by ABG they are the starting point for all head development. There will be many many more of these made available going forward. Heads always take on characteristics of their ancestors, as such they tend to all be in the same vein. As generations are added some characteristics remain, some are lost. You could change all properties if you wanted to, but for the most part, the template already provides a starting point and all you are doing is tweaking from there...
