Fortin NTS Suite




The Fortin NTS brings back to life one of the most brutal and versatile sounding amplifiers in the industry. The NTS accurately replicates the tonal and dynamic characteristics of this dual-channel, blisteringly high gain monster.

Mike worked closely with NeuralDSP to capture and recreate every distinct sonic aspect of what makes this amplifier unique: every voltage node, unusual power tube pairings, and even output transformer substrate characteristics were painstakingly reproduced to provide an algorithmically perfect model of one of metal’s most coveted amplifiers.

This model represents, perfectly, one of the most coveted amps in history. It's most definitely Scandinavian, probably Swedish.

The Cab Sim

It is hard to overstate the importance of well-captured cabinets in a rig’s overall tonal character.

To offer maximum flexibility, we engineered a very comprehensive and adaptive cabinet simulation module: featuring six virtual microphones, which can be positioned around the speakers.

This module can also serve as a standard loader for your favorite impulse response files.

These features can be used on both mono and stereo configurations; the latter allows for a second microphone to be added with full panning, microphone-level, and phase parameters in addition to position and distance, for ultimate control and endless sonic possibilities.



Models of Fortin Amplification’s GRIND®, ZUUL® and HEXDRIVE® pedals are included in the virtual signal chain to create a complete suite that incorporates all the necessary tone-shaping tools for the modern guitarist.


Besides additional gain, GRIND® adds an incredible amount of clarity and articulation to the sound, making every note defined and present, even when highly distorted. Use on more low end rich amp sounds to add tightness.


The NTS®also features the Fortin ZUUL® pedal. Widely regarded as the epitome of noise-gate performance and transparency! This virtual studio-grade noise gate gets the job done with a simple straightforward operation. ZUUL® will respect your fast play stops and your long releases without interfering on your interpretation.


The HEXDRIVE® adds further tone-shaping possibilities, bringing classic and modern overdrive tones to the plugin suite.


The new standalone feature in Fortin NTS Suite allows you to quickly install, plug and play the most brutal and realistic sounding amp sim on the planet! Standalone is perfect for practice on the go and live use. Simply open on your computer, plug into your interface and go!
