Ampeg® Heritage Bass Amp Bundle
Ampeg Heritage Bass Amp Bundle
Makes any bass sound great, and a great bass sound even better...
My only complaint with the UA Ampeg plugins: I think you need the entire bundle to cover a reasonable musical range. All 3 sound great. Each is very distinct in character. I've used the SVT plugin with less expensive basses for years. What really surprised me is how much better my good basses sound with the B-15, even with an API LX pedal or Aguilar Tone Hammer in the signal chain. Just try an A/B with the demo and you'll see what I mean.
Several Decades of Ampeg Bass Tone
You have a pallet of many decades of bass amplification evolution at your disposal with this bundle. You will have an appropriate tone of any genre in this collection. From warm tube goodness of Motown tone, to grind and metal tones to hi-fi modern, it's all there.
I'm only an occasional bass player for my own home recordings, and I've never owned an actual B-15, so I can't evaluate this simulation with any authority. I give it four stars because it does sound like a miked-up amp to me (and this I've done a fair amount of in the past), and it provides a variety of speaker/mic combinations as well as the two versions of the amp: 1964/1966. It sounds better to me than their SVT Classic Legacy (which I have owned an actual specimen of years ago). I do wish it had Fet47 and U87 microphone simulation options, and perhaps distance and placement options like some other similar plugins do. But at the end of the day, I still usually prefer to go direct in, sans amp sim, into their 1176LN legacy and maybe the Studer A800 tape sim. It's probably me, but the amp sims always give me a muddy result whereas the DI approach usually sounds clearer. I might put an IR on the track after the fact. Among preamp sims so far, I like their simple Neve Preamp best for recording bass.
Easier on the back
Wished i could take this on stage
As good as it gets
Very happy with this plug in, never been keen on guitar amp plug ins, but this bass one is the business, totally wicked, have used it to make records, as good as the real thing, and lighter to carry around!
I'd choose 0 if it were an option. This is an example how UAD fell short in delivering a simple tool to aid their customers. A tuner, frequency analyser, and monitoring tools should have been provided for free with the console. As it happens, none of these essential tools are even available to buy. What a joke!
UAD's prices exploit users who committed to their business model. Even with discounts and coupons - throw a dog a bone - the prices are extortionate. It's software after all, and doesn't come close to the hardware it replicates! It's just coding. That said, it's the best software out there, and certainly has value. Just not the price tag they expect.
Epic bass sound
This is my go to bass amp at any project.
Well done UAD
Had the original , loved it with Fender basses, Watched Fab use it on the NAMM LUNA demo!
IT's my go to Bass tone now, plug in my Fender Precision 5 string, Avalon Vt 737, into Ampeg B-15, instant success!!! it sounds excellent with lots of cool options, IT'S INSTANT TONE!!!
Ease of use and sound is amazing.
One of the best bass amp plugin
Complétement satisfait de se plugin
Gnarly sound for bass
Love this little plugin for practicing with my bass guitar. Gives my P bass a unique tone.
I ended up also purchasing the SVT but also love this area
What can I say, it has that sound.
What can I say, it has that sound. Worth upgrading to this full version, especially during times where you have coupons so I ended up getting this for $49. Money well spent even if you end up paying the full $99 for this upgrade as it’s going to be your go-to amp.
Love them !
The Ampeg amp sim distort beautifully and cut through the mix. I highly recommend them.
USD B 15N review. Excellent!!
Haven’t used it much yet, but I can already tell that it’ll be my go to bass plugin. The ability to add it on input is just great.
As I am a bass player, older ( 69) and old school 62 precision, 67 percussion fretlessed), 70 jazz) if there’s bass plugin that I hear about, I buy it. I have the 2 ampeg AmpliTube collections, the Mark bass studio collection, the softube eden WT and so forth. My first bass amp, bought in 1970 was a b -15. It got away somewhere down the line. So I do have an emotional attachment to that model.
Anyway, so far, it appears to outshine the competition. Very pleased. Will need more time to focus on my input skills going forward, but it’s winner so far.
I have usually just taken my bass directly into a j48 active DI , into my interface and then into Pro Tools. Just went UAD, so this unison, low latency input option is a new world to learn. For my personal style, I play no tone. Do the challenge is getting a full sound, but with reasonable definition and lack of muddiness on the low end.
I do lie all tge others I’ve mentioned, but this went to the top of the list.
Muy buenas emulaciones. No me han decepcionado. Las utilizo en estudio y directo.
Great bass amp
Love the sound
Phantastic sound, dynamic ok
Again this plugin has the expected phantastic sound that uad plugins stand for. I own many. Also the settings are really manifold and guarantee for versatility changing the sound of the bassguitar. The playing feel is less dynamic than playing through a real amp but that is always there in any amp simulation. Uad definitely makes amp simulations that are more dynamic than many others. Again, I never regretted buying anything from UAD. And that’s a fact.
Great bass tone
Sounds list like the real thing. Easy to use. Great sound
