Everything about Tim Henson is distinct. His artistic identity is defined by an unrelenting pursuit of his own aesthetics.

Many times deriving inspiration from the least obvious sources, his tone and style are, in every sense of the word, as unique as he is unapologetic about them. In a world where many try to fit by reiterating what has worked for others, Tim thrives in the unprecedented. 

Innovation and progress often necessitate a combination of brilliance, relentlessness, and a burning desire to obliterate the cutting edge. There aren’t many that evoke such traits as him.

We proudly present you, Archetype: Tim Henson.


Our intelligent Multivoicer algorithm allows you to add 4 pitch shifted voices on top of your signal. The voicing library provides absolute control over the root note, modes, and chords for harmonizing as well as arpeggiating.

Activate MIDI to receive MIDI chords or notes which will harmonize your DI signal to the MIDI-instructed pitch.

Pre Effects

Providing incredible dynamic control to perfectly condition your signal for the amplifier section.



A bright and sparkly amplifier faithfully recreated from Tim’s studio signal chain to bring the rich harmonics of your acoustic instruments. It also features our proprietary blend control, which can simulate some of the acoustic/piezo sparkle on conventional pickups.


A low-gain British-voiced amplifier with two unique channels to achieve everything from glassy cleans to edge-of-breakup and warm crunch.


Dynamic and rich, the Lead amplifier is perfect for heavier rhythms and soaring lead. As Tim eloquently put it: this one f**ks.


We engineered a very comprehensive and adaptive cabinet simulation module featuring six virtual microphones, which can be positioned around the speakers. The cabsim features 108 IRs per cab for a total of 324 IRs captured by Adam “Nolly” Getgood.

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.

Post Effects

Stereo Chorus provides lush and swirly goodness with minimal tweaking.

Delay with 3 modes (ping pong, wide, normal) & 3 types (diffusion, vintage digital, modern).

Reverb from subtle rooms to apotheotic, angelical shimmers.


The onboard 9-band graphic equalizer allows for total control over frequency response. As always, there’s an independent EQ for each amplifier.
