The Ultimate Valve Guitar Preamp
Combining an on board 12AX7 analogue valve and 3-band Tone control with Two notes Torpedo power amp modelling and cab simulation, Sono lets you quickly create, record and store the guitar sounds you hear in your head

Shape your sound
Fine tune your sound on the way in with Sono’s 3 band analogue EQ and add body to your heavy tones or that extra bit of sparkle to your clean tones.

Torpedo Remote Software Onboard DSP
We teamed up with Two notes to bring you their renowned Torpedo Power Amp Modelling and Cab Simulation built straight into Sono. Letting you accurately emulate the sound and process of miking a guitar or bass cabinet in a professional recording studio all from your desktop.

Create your ultimate rig
No live room or extensive cab & mic collection? No problem! Customise everything from the room type, microphone model and placement and even stylistic tone control such as vintage and modern all from your computer.

Record through your favourite cabs
Pick and choose from a wide range of guitar and bass cabs models and play through or record emulations of the classics such as the Marshall 4×12, Fender 2×12, Ampeg 8×10 and many more.

Expand your collection
Find your perfect cab with the Two notes online cab store. Browse new cab simulations from the industry leading guitarists & studios, ideal for any genre.

Unlimited creative possibilities
With Sono, you’re able to bypass the built in preamp stage to use your own preamp pedals with the Two notes cab simulation in low latency.

Route your mics or synths through the classic valve preamp, analogue EQ and Two notes processing and start creating crazy new sounds or simply add that classic analogue warmth to your recordings.

Your pedals, our cabs
Plug in your favourite reverb, delay or distortion pedals and combine your unique sound with the power of Two notes and start recording your favourite tones.

Use in standalone mode: Store 3 presets onboard
Once you find a tone you love, store up to 3 presets on board Sono and start recording your favourite tones right away, practice without the need for a laptop or even take 3 amps with you on stage!

Record your hardware amps: Re-amp at any time
No need to buy a dedicated re-amp box. Sono always records a clean D.I signal, so you can capture your performances as creativity strikes and re-amp through your favourite hardware amps later.

Record on the fly
Simply load up your go to sound and start recording instantly without the need to mic up and play through a noisy amp – perfect for home studios.

Jam at home
No need to set up big rigs or turn on your computer, just load up your favourite preset, plug in and start jamming without the risk of annoying your neighbours.

Perform live
Leave the amp at home and travel light. Sono lets you plug straight into any PA using the direct outputs, giving you great results and minimal setup.

Perfect for feeding an amp sim
Use Sono’s onboard effects to record latency free and without interruption from processor hungry amp sims. Then simply run your clean D.I take through your favourite amp sim afterwards, whilst still benefitting from the sonic character of the 12AX7 valve instrument input.

A powerful interface under the hood
Even without the guitar processing, Sono is still an incredibly powerful but simple to use recording interface giving you all the tools you need to get studio quality recordings at home.

Two Audient Console Mic Pres: The professional sound you deserve
You’ve spent years perfecting your sound, why compromise now? Sono provides over 20 years of analogue console design heritage on your desktop. Get studio quality recordings with two of Audient’s renowned console mic preamps.

Get better performances
Don’t let latency get in the way of your creativity. Monitor mix allows you to blend between the input signal from your guitar and DAW playback, letting you record and monitor without delay.

Advanced headphone technology
Hear your music as it should sound with Sono’s advanced headphone amp technology, designed to provide enough power for any headphones to perform to their highest potential.

Expand via ADAT: Get more channels
Expand up to 10 inputs via ADAT and record drums, multi-mic cabs or even capture live performances. Sono lets you take your track from start to finish.

Create instantly
Bundled with a free suite of creative software including Cubase LE and Cubasis LE for iOS, alongside industry leading plugins and virtual instruments, you can start recording as soon as you open the box.
