A Superior Model of the Classic 1970s Bass Amplifier, now for UAD-2 and Apollo.
Getting a great bass sound in the project studio has always been a challenge of trade-offs. Using a DI will keep the volume manageable, but you need an amp and cabinet to get the sonic authority you need. Softube’s Bass Amp Room gives you the best of both worlds – the sound of authentic bass amp and cabinets in a volume-friendly package for your DAW.
Developed by emulation experts at Softube for the UAD-2 hardware and the Apollo audio interface, Bass Amp Room gives you everything you need to create the bass sound you’re after — quickly, easily, and intuitively, without worrying about the volume or maintenance of a heavy bass amp and cabinet.
A highly versatile amplifier model and three distinctive-sounding cabinets let you create a wide range of bass sounds, from clean and beefy to distorted and aggressive. Track bass directly through your Apollo interface with sub-2ms latency, or re-amplify your existing bass tracks to add space and punch. Stack multiple amp tones to create unique, one-of-a-kind sounds.
One Amp, Three Cabinets
Based upon a classic and versatile 1970s bass amp model, Bass Amp Room gives you a vast range of sonic textures — from clean, fat and punchy to thick, dirty distortion with all the low-end you could want. Three different cabinets cover a full complement of tonal character. The time-honored 8x10” model is renowned for fat, solid tones with plenty of low end and superior definition. The 4x12” model delivers a harder-edged sound. And the open-backed single 12” cabinet is great for a round, mellow tone that blends well with acoustic tracks.
Realtime Mic Positioning
Bass Amp Room’s adjustable mic positioning can have a dramatic effect on your sound. Click and drag to change the mic’s distance from the speaker. Close positioning gives a full bodied sound with a lot of presence. Backing the microphone away from the cabinet gives you a thinner sound, brings in some phase anomalies, and lets you hear more of the room. Angle the mic to soften things up a bit.
Separate DI Controls
Many engineers prefer the tight tonal control of recording bass through a DI box over micing a cabinet. With Bass Amp Room, you don’t have to choose. A continuous controller allows you to blend any amount of DI signal with the cabinet sound of your choice. A built-in limiter and three tone controls give you even more sonic options, right at your fingertips.
