    Great Tools!

    by G. Sullivan . 5 out of 5 stars

    Everyone seems to want to know if it sounds like a “real amp.” I just released a CD using a real top of the line Marshall, and used a Royer microphone, with a great preamp. I also used the UA amp simulators. Do they sound the same? Probably not. But many of the reviews I have received preferred the sound of the simulators, when they didn’t know which was which. These are great tools! But the tools are only as good as the craftsman using the tools.

    Good on bass

    by N. Ozhiganov . 3 out of 5 stars

    On bass its pretty good blended with line signal, but not for guitar, i think. Maybe i buy native plugin it cost $80 now on sale, and it has AAX native format what i need . UAD platform for better plugins. When I wrote in UA last year's poll that I want guitar processing I was hoping for the best.

    Epic Tone!!!

    by K. Mesford . 5 out of 5 stars

    This plugin is SWEET! It is like getting up and walking into the live room and adjusting the guitar mic just a hair, and then walking back to the control room to hear how much better the guitar sounds in the track, without actually having to waste all that time walking back and forth! This plugin does not just emulate the "sound" of a particular amp, it emulates that amp in an acoustic environment with two microphones, and the freedom to create any sound you want from the resulting sonic palette. Time to create some epic tones!

    Highly recomended

    by N. Stevens . 5 out of 5 stars

    I have a $1600 Vetta II head that sounds great live, but I have a hard time getting "The Sound" when trying to go direct. I spent almost 2 hours 1 day trying to get it even in the ball park with no luck when I remembered the last UAD software included a metal amp sim. I plugged directly into a Eureka mic pre and inserted metal shop and ..Wow! sounded almost exactly the way I spend hours "trying" to get my real amp to sound. And with just a little bit of tweaking it sounded amazing!! If you are a metal head, old scjool or new school, this will likely be your go to plug! Enough variation to make it personal but its not trying to be all things to all people which usually kills a product. It does one thing, but does it VERY well!

    works

    by M. Olsen . 3 out of 5 stars

    I'll be honest, I have never been a fan of the native versions of Softube's amp emulations (on the other hand I'm a huge fan of their CL1B and Trident plugins), but I needed a zero-latency distortion effect just so I could lay down direct/clean tracks for distorted guitar with the right feel. Once the clean input is tracked, I mix with another plugin.

    Now that the drama is out of the way, I will say it is wonderful to have a decent emulation in realtime paired with my Apollo. I'm not a guitarist. I'm a producer learning guitar who needed a way to get a good vibe on clean input. I'm very happy with the purchase.

    Not to my liking...

    by S. Woolgar . 3 out of 5 stars

    I feel like the dynamics are just not the same. I prefer the many other amp sims I have, despite them not being on the DSP chips.

    I wish I had tried this before buying.

    Outstanding for indie rock guitarists too!

    by . . 5 out of 5 stars

    Sounds fantastic. I don't use crazy distortion, and was very surprised in how easy it was to get a useable tone. I had no intentions of buying this when I demo'd it (just needed quick distortion), and was so impressed I had to buy it.

    Well Respected

    by S. Gilroy . 4 out of 5 stars

    This amp simulator is UAD's best high gain simulator. Extremely impressive with a tinny gate, ouch! Still a great plugin. Yes I bought this and use it often in conjunction with other amp sims. UAD'S Best!

    Best Guitar Plugin i\'ve Ever Heard

    by D. Giroir . 5 out of 5 stars

    I've been trying to find a guitar plugin that sounds like a mic'd amp for years. I've used the POD farm plugins as well as GTR 3 and while I made those work, I never could get that natural sound. I tried metal amp room a couple days ago and I was very impressed to say the least. I tried to get the same tones from GTR 3 and then a/b'd the two plugins. The metal amp room just sounded like a mic'd amp every time where as the GTR 3 just always sounded thin with that aggravating high end thing that most guitar plugins have. I can honestly say this is the first plugin i've found that sounds natural. Coupled with the ability to move the mics around i'm definitely looking forward to using this plugin.

    I do not use real guitars

    by J. Kehm . 5 out of 5 stars

    I am always trying to make a synth line sound something like a distorted guitar and this plug in does the trick amazingly.
    it is a very nasty and chaotic sound but I think it is wonderful.

    It is not the most versatile plug in but it does it's job very well.
