“The same could be said of the amp’s performance on the title track from Janis Ian’s Grammy-nominated Breaking Silence. The FLAC file has a very analog vibe to it, even though it was sourced from a CD. I love using it to test dynamics and imaging. The song opens with a quiet solo-voice section that draws you in before the close-miked percussion and acoustic guitar enter. With highquality equipment, you can actually hear the fingers moving over the guitar strings, and that’s exactly what you get with the ATI: unabashed transparency. The amp doesn’t color the sound in any perceptible way, which is how I like it and how it should be.
