The Bringer of Joy
JupiterXTC is the representation of all the best characteristics of modern and vintage amps, the final pleasure for any guitar player. It delivers three independent preamp channels, each one featuring its own EQ section (contrary to only two of its hardware counterpart) and multiple switching options, including the Plexi mode to engage that classic British feel.
The perfect approach to circuit modeling
Non plus ultra: the extreme limit that cannot be crossed by anyone. From post-classical Latin non plus ultra was the inscription on the Pillars of Hercules (Straits of Gibraltar).
JupiterXTC features the same built-from-scratch proprietary 64-bit engine used for SaturnLO and MercuryRec which is based on general purpose hi-quality algorithms and the most recent non-linear models. Particular attention has been put on the definition of the Non Linear Solver to get the maximum quality and realism, without losing details in favor of performances (Double-Precision Non-Linear Computing).
Double-Precision Non-Linear Computing
Our non-plus-ultra reproductions bring a completely new philosophy to the table: being able to shape your tone by giving total access to the circuit components. Managing each gain stage level, shaping the tone-stacks or modifying the tubes characteristics: there is virtually no limit to what you can achieve with our plugins!
We put great passion to get the perfect representation of the hardware. If you don’t trust our words, then trust your ears.
These samples are the result of some DI tracks, JupiterXTC and (for the crunch/hi-gain samples) a N4 library reproducing poweramp/cabinet/mic/mic-preamp. No LPF or HPF. In some there is a small EQ adjustment.

The Renderer is a stand-alone application to process an input wave file in OffLine mode. It can be invoked via command line too. Its purpose is to render long and processing demanding configurations (e.g. high upsampling).
GUI: tooltips and Edit Mode
The graphic engine has been designed with a purpose in mind: keeping a clear indication of the status of the elements without altering their 3D rendering on the scene. Tooltips serve this purpose perfectly especially when dealing with knobs status. A typical approach to this problem would be to compress the height of the knobs trying to prevent the user to commit parallax errors. As a side effect the graphic designer would be forced to take into account this constraint by limiting the 3D depth of the scene.
Another good reason to use a tooltip-based approach is to allow the update of the knobs status by using an Edit Mode.
When using a state-of-the-art system – see minimum requirements in the product webpage – the GUI is able to deliver more than 60 FPS at a reasonably low CPU usage for a super fluid knob tweaking and a hyper realistic meter response.
JupiterXTC is distributed for Windows 64-bit and MacOs 64-bit Intel and Arm (Apple M1), in 2 formats:
- Plugin in VST3/AU 64 bit format;
- Renderer in Windows/MacOs executable
We strongly recommend to demo the 15-days trial version before making any purchase. Requirements are reported in the table below.
Formats and operating systems different from the ones specified above are not supported yet.
JupiterXTC can be used on the most popular DAWs (digital audio workstation) supporting VST3 format.
Here is a list of the DAWs on which MercuryRec has been tested:
- Cockos Reaper (Windows/MacOs)
- Presonus Studio One (Windows/MacOs)
- Steinberg Cubase/Nuendo (Windows/MacOs)
- Logic Pro X (MacOs)
- Cakewalk Bandlab/Sonar (Windows)
- Ableton Live* (Windows)
- Image-Line FL Studio (Windows)
*Note for Ableton Live users on Windows 10: it is strictly required to run Ableton Live in compatibility mode for Windows 8 (from Ableton Live icon, Properties, Compatibility TAB, Compatibility mode checked + Windows 8); set “Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by” to “System”.
