Ampeg B-15N Bass Amplifier
The Ampeg B-15 bass amp defined the sound of recorded electric bass, from Motown sides with James Jamerson to classic Stax records with Donald “Duck” Dunn. Featuring Unison™ technology for Apollo interfaces, the Ampeg B-15N Bass Amplifier plug-in lets you track through an exacting emulation of this 30-watt, 1x15, all-tube brute that laid the foundation for ’60s and ’70s rock, funk, and soul.
Ampeg SVT-VR Bass Amplifier
Introduced in 1969, the SVT is the result of Ampeg’s desire to create the, “biggest, nastiest bass amplifier the world has ever seen.” Mission accomplished. Now you can track through or re-amp with an exacting emulation of the classic 300-watt all-tube behemoth and its equally legendary 8x10 cabinet.
Ampeg SVT-3 PRO Bass Amplifier
Lauded for its punch and versatility, the Ampeg SVT-3 PRO plug-in combines the classic tone of the original SVT, with a tighter, more modern sound. By expertly emulating its tube preamp, solid-state power section, five-position midrange selector, and 9-band graphic EQ, the SVT-3 PRO plug-in is a powerful tone tool with a dizzying array of sonic possibilities.
Unison™ Technology for Apollo Interfaces
With UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, each Ampeg amp in the Heritage plug-in bundle gives you the unique impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviors that are essential to each amplifier’s iconic tones.

Thanks for the bypass preamp feature!
Thank you so much for the most important Feature for real preamp owners which is bypassing the software emulated preamp! I´m sure most guitar players have already a nice sounding real tube preamp or a head with DI out, which they really want to use in every possible situation. I´m a proud owner of a Mesa/Boogie TriAxis and I have all my favorite presets saved there so i can produce each desired sound by just choosing a program - and the sound is real tube blow away analogue sound. But there is one problem when it comes to recording, the power amp section, cabinet and microphones are crucial but impracticable in home recording environment. Thats where amp simulation with bypassed preamp kicks in - a viola!
I am a studio bassist and have been recording as an engineer since 2008. I own a Trace AH250 which I'd use once in a while for tracking.
I have never been a fan of Ampeg at all, they actually sound completely inferior, especially the clumsy 8x10 stack which is horrendous and doesn't come close to modern boutique cabs like Shroeder etc.
Now, I bought this plug on a whim and noodled around for a while - sounded OK
But when I used it to lay down some proper backing tracks for a modern funk tune this thing exploded!
I couldn't believe how well it fit snuggly in the mix, and without any effort on my end. - no compression, no EQ etc
It just blew my mind, and i used a standard preset with minimal tweaking.
This is a total no-brainer !
Very good quality
Great Sound, it is (one) the best amp plug in I ever had. Good work
Everything I hoped for and more
Les Paul or Strat, even with effects board between guitar and UA Twin, the Chandler handles it all with ease and great tone. I rarely use a wah, but had an order for slide/wah fills for a group of songwriters. Was going to use traditional set up, but thought of running LP through wah, then to UA Twin, Chandler; very nice result. From clean chicken pickin' to wall of sound overdrive, I think this will become my go-to solution.
It is good!
This plug-in is very nice but you need to look into it and spend some time doing your own presets depending on what guitars you are using.
ENGL® E765 Retro Tube
This amp works great. It gets used a lot when I dont feel like micing up a cab, and I never feel the need to replace it later. Only problem is how every preset has the bass Blasted to 10. easy to turn the knob back, but I dont know why they did this. I would recommend this is your looking for a nice sounding amp sim that you will not have to replace later on in the recording process.
One stop for Bass
This plugin is everything I have ever wanted in a bass plugin - plus the bonus of no CPU drain. The sounds is killer, I add this and a 1176 and get huge, fat, tight bass sound. And, I don't have to mic anything, drag my head and cab around. I couldn't be happier, best in class, look absolutely no further.
Helps mixing bass
Getting a good bass tone is one of more challenging tasks in mixing for me. A good amp emulator is often the solution when dialing in changes to what you've got already, be it a combo of DI and amp.
I've used everything out there I could find. Now that I'm on UAD-2 I am using Ampeg SVT-VR for reamping bass, and it's everything and a bit more, due to the mic modeling. The automatic switching through the various mic/cab options saves you from doing it yourself, which gets you a little more away from expectation bias.
So far I find the tones very heavy and give more than enough heft in the mids and lows- what you're usually trying to get with an amp signal. A combination of this and the UAD dbx 160 compressor brings classic tones.
Cool off function of the amplifier and cabinet. Best emulation today.
Versatile Rock Amp
I'm able to get lots of great tones out of this plugin from clean to crunchy to big and heavy. It plays nicely with real pedals in front of it, too! I've had some good bass tones from from this as well, though I usually need to enhance the low end with a DI mixed in for that to work. Brainworx has done a nice job with the various recording chains. Once you get your head around how they set that up, and how to best audition them, it's really a nice way to work.
It's very very good amp plugin !!
Great Amp Model
This is a great amp emulation. If you want a classic guitar amp in the box this is for you, especially for the price!
Like a good album
Like a good album, this amp emulation took a little while to get used to and to find that sweetness from. You really have to tweak around to get what you want from it. All in all, a fine sounding amp from an emulation. You want the real thing, record it. You want something in the ballpark to get some cool sounds quick, this is the answer. I really dig this emulation of the coveted Chandler amp. You do need to play around with the input and levels to get that particular sound, but after that it is a really fun thing to play with.
The LoFi reverb sold it!
I was looking for a guitar amp plugin that gave me something a little different. Once I recorded a few lines and started messing with the controls, I found I could get anything from classic VOX/Fender/Marshall vibes to more contemporary hi gain models with just a few moves of the mouse. The LoFi delay made the axe thick without being too obvious. Start at 0 and it sounds like you'd expect - an exact copy (or copies) of your line. Move the value up and it changes the tone dramatically. The thickness is still there, but the line becomes muted in the delay. Not so obvious it is there anymore, but it still thickens the part up! A unique sound that sits well in the mix with multiple parts. Well done.
