Introducing PRIMO, our all-rounder.

The beating heart of PRIMO is what we call a "Dynamic Portrait": an AI-generated tone, capturing the essence of a real amp.
Our Neural Network, trained on a boutique Italian tube amp, has crafted two beautiful channels: CH1 for everything from cleans to juicy edge-of-breakup tones, and CH2 for roaring crunch tones and searing leads.
Explore all their sonic facets by sweeping the Gain knob, and refine your sound with the musical and versatile 3-band EQ provided!

PRIMO is tailored to modern guitarists' needs, and it's focused on tone and feel.
Straight to the point, with all the tools you need:

- Two independent channels with 3-band EQ and constant loudness
- Modern and flat UI
- Chromatic high-precision Tuner
- Built-in Noise Gate
- Snappy and responsive Compressor with constant loudness
- Transparent and versatile Overdrive
- IR loader with 5 studio-grade cabinet IRs
- Silky Tri-Chorus
- Versatile and musical Phaser
- Digital and Analog Delay, with sync function, mono/stereo capability and tap tempo
- 3-dimensional Plate Reverb
- Master section with high and low pass filters

Stage Mode allows you to quickly recall your preset and much more while playing, using a MIDI controller or OSC device:
assign a preset to each slot, organize your tones in 64 different scenes, and switch from one to another in no time!

Unleash your creativity with Dynamic Control: PRIMO seamlessly morphs its tone in response to your playing. Use it to create new effects or automate parameters.

You can use PRIMO as a standalone app or in your favorite DAW as an AUv3 plugin.

People you cannot open the app (as a stand alone app) you must load in a Daw!

So one user writes a review that as soon as the PRIMO land screen loads up it crashes… Well it’s because you need to open it in Garage Band, or Logic Pro, or Cubasis 3 as an Audio Unit, Auv3… don’t feel bad I too did the same thing, and just clicked the app as a standalone app and was like What the…
But it needs to load up in the DAW you use.

It’s actually a REALLY good app…. The GUI (the interface) is actually very straight forward, but has a surprising amount of sound shaping features.
I played a bass track through it to add some grit and it did an awesome job! The sound wasn’t ’Digital Harsh’ but smooth and rich, the presets are really useful… I really like the whole app,

* Appearance is spot on and not cluttered (on my 2024 iPad Pro)
* The sound, which is what we care about, sounds amazing, adds loudness without noise!
* The functionality is what makes this app useful, and every who records music on their iPad knows that you have to adjust the levels, whether the levels coming into Daw, or going out of the Daw into headphones, or speakers! This app not only does its job top level, but does it FOR FREE!

Thank you Developers!

Developer Response ,

Hi, thank you for your positive feedback! Actually PRIMO should run also as a standalone application, could you please send us an email with the specs of your setup? So we can identify the problem, thank you!


Great job

Likes the sound with some drums quite useful for anything I’ve thrown at it really! Looking forward to where this goes ! Running iOS 16 on iPad Pro 3rd gen no issues other than maybe a reboot upon install

Oh dear good lord, thank you for Primo

Who am I kiddin?

Lord himself made this sweet nectarine of an app!

This one single app in terms of quality and stability, is far better than IK Multimedia’s fake products and misleading advertising and marketing!

We love you dev. Eternal gratitude, for being a true patron for art and aesthetic!
