Tonocracy Combines

Atomic’s all-new, cutting edge SchemAccurate amp simulation, our proprietary ToneSnap gear snapshot technology, and a suite of rapidly growing world-class effects into a single easy-to-use plugin and standalone app.


ToneSnap gear snapshot technology recreates the detailed sonic representation of your own amps, cabs and pedals using our state-of-the-art AI-powered algorithms. Follow a quick, simple procedure with any audio interface, and Tonocracy will analyze your gear’s audio DNA and convert it into a portable, playable snapshot. But you don’t need to create your own – we have a rapidly-growing library to suit all tastes and playing styles. Quickly search for the perfect ToneSnap across an online library with content from a range of creators, from top names you already know to individual community members. Got an amazing specimen of an amp? Publish your own ToneSnap to share it with the world!

Tonocracy doesn’t require a powerful computer or dedicated graphics card – all processing is done in the cloud with our GPU servers, and you don’t have to worry about manually uploading or downloading files. Simply set up your amp, start the ToneSnap process, and within minutes you can get back to making music while we do the work in the background. When everything is ready, just a couple clicks will bring the new ToneSnap into your personal library, ready to use

Frustrated by other capture or profiling technology that always sounds under- or over-gained, or needs a particular piece of hardware to guarantee consistency? Tonocracy solves this problem once and for all. We’ve made sure that ToneSnap creators have the tools to easily and precisely calibrate any audio interface, taking the guesswork out of gain staging. When using any ToneSnap created with our procedure, the experience is as if you plugged straight into the real amp. When sharing a ToneSnap with other users, you can be confident that it will sound as intended, regardless of their interface.



SchemAccurate modelling technology leverages the best of both component modelling and AI-based techniques to produce stunningly accurate recreations of some of the greatest amps and gear of all time. The character and feel of each unique piece is faithfully preserved, and all knobs respond and interact just like the original, making dialing in tones a breeze. SchemAccurate modeling complements the ToneSnap snapshot technology, and you can expect both libraries to grow as we acquire new items for our collection!

Current Tonocracy SchemAccurate models include:



Atomic has been an innovator in the guitar amp modeling space for over 20 years! The Tonocracy platform ushers in a new era with our most exciting, ambitious and sophisticated technology yet. It has never been a better time to be a guitar player and we are focused on providing the best tools to players to use across all mediums. The plugin world is only where the journey begins.



While Tonocracy comes armed with our own incredibly accurate ToneSnap gear snapshot technology, our goal is to create a platform that can incorporate the latest set of tools that the community is embracing. Neural Amp Modeler (NAM) is a ground breaking open-source project that uses deep learning to create gear models, and boasts an impressive set of content made by an enthusiastic community. We give NAM users a home where they can easily mix and match their favorite amp tones with the best of what Tonocracy has to offer.


From NAM’s creator:

“When I first opened Tonocracy, I thought ‘This is it!’–a sleek, modern interface, packed with everything that I need to craft a tone that inspires me as an artist.

Being able to use Neural Amp Modeler in a way that’s seamlessly integrated with the product is game-changing and will make it a go-to for me.”

– Steve Atkinson, Creator, Neural Amp Modeler


Custom IRs by
ML Sound Lab

Atomic is excited to have partnered with ML Sound Lab to stock Tonocracy with a versatile and perfectly matched collection of speaker cabinets as part of our factory offering. ML’s founder Mikko did an outstanding job hand selecting shots from the very best cabinets in his legendary personal collection — these perfectly complement our amps and ToneSnap gear snapshots, and are some of the most clear and mix-ready cabs we’ve ever heard.


“Tone for and by the people”

It is more than just a tagline — it encompasses our ethos, and our goals. Tonocracy was built from the ground up to develop into a comprehensive set of tools for players, and we are just at the beginning of the journey. While we ourselves strive to deliver the very best amps, cabs, effects and features in house, we are also bringing in other great minds, brands and technologies. Cab IRs by ML Sound Lab, NAM support, and featured ToneSnaps by Amalgam Audio and other creators are just the first examples – with more to come. We are creating a platform where creators, artists, and developers can come together to build something that is more than the sum of it’s parts.
