Extreme High-Gain Guitar Amp Modeling, Now for UAD-2 and Apollo Interface.
 
Developed by Softube for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo interface, Metal Amp Room gives you some of the best hard rock and heavy metal sounds available, without the need to set up and mic amps and stacks of speaker cabs. Track layer upon layer of power crunch and scorching solos in real time using your Apollo interface. Or, re-amp your recorded tracks via your UAD-2 hardware to give them a whole new dimension of punch and tone.

Metal Amp Room features a meticulously modeled execution of one of the most punchy, aggressive amps available — with a smooth, articulate high end, near-infinite sustain, and a super fast, super tight gate for palm muting.

Watch the overview video.

Realtime Cabinet and Mic Selection
Choose between two distinct 4 x 12” speaker cabinets, and a either a dynamic or condenser mic — or both. Click and drag to change each mic’s positioning and distance from the speaker cab. Close positioning gives a full bodied sound with a lot of presence. Backing the microphone away from the cabinet gives you a thinner sound and lets you hear more of the room. Or you can angle the mic to soften things up a bit.

The combinations of different cabinets, mics, and mic placements give you a near-infinite palette of aggressive sounds, and the included Balancing Stereo preamp lets you easily blend all of these elements. Taken together, Metal Amp Room serves up an extremely powerful package for any hard rock, punk or metal guitarist.

  • Gareth Jones

    (Depeche Mode, Erasure, Grizzly Bear)

    “It's a miracle that we can have these [Softube plug-in] amplifiers in our laptops. It's a huge truck full of wonderful gear for me to use at the click of a mouse button.”

    Phil Tan

    (Usher, Mariah Carey)

    “Go for something that's unexpected. There's nothing wrong with running a vocal through a [Softube] guitar amp, for example, if it works and gives you something cool!”

    Bill Reynolds

    (Band of Horses)

    “I often use [Softube] amp sims when I mix live recorded material. I'll take the DI from the live console and use an amp sim to cut down on the bleed from the mic in front of the amp on the stage.”

    Paul Hagar

    (Goo Goo Dolls, Jonas Brothers)

    “This [Softube Amp Room plug-in] really comes alive when you multiply a DI sound to make combinations of amps the mix together. Try taking a DI and send to the Marshall and the Vox at the same time. You will be happy you did.”

    Very nice for tracking extreme metal!
    by C. Steen(Thursday 4 June, 2015)

    This is my go-to plugin for tracking extreme metal guitarists! It just sounds great and have loads of low-end, and you know how guitar players in this genre feel about low-end. I wouldn't use it on a record, but for tracking DI-signals, it's more that enough. Read More

    Outstanding for indie rock guitarists too!
    by . (Monday 6 April, 2015)

    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. Read More

    Great Tools!
    by G. Sullivan (Saturday 6 September, 2014)

    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… Read More
