Ampeg® SVT-VR Bass Amplifier
Ampeg SVT-VR Bass Amplifier
J. Ivarsson Björklund
... bass amp plugin I can play through without thinking of it as a plugin. It feels and sounds superb!
Gorgeous ampeg tone
This is my go to bass amp, I'm using it on my own album, it completely replaced all my other amp sim emulations. This and the SVT-3 really complement each other depending on your needs, one of the best UAD purchases I've done.
Great Amp easy to use sounds real!
This plugin does a great job, I tried also the Ampeg SVT-3 PRO Bass, and here is my opinion, if you are looking for a great multi use rock, hard rock amp pick the Ampeg SVT-VR which has a wonderful color and sound, if you are looking for an amp for big metal with a clean and powerful sound without a single breath, pick the SVT-3. It's spirit versus chirurgical :) But both will enhance your mix, I have replaced all my bass lines an reamp them with this plugin. I love it!
Oh Mama !
By far, the best amp emulation I've ever heard, for both bass and guitar.
And also ridiculously easy to use.
First time I felt an urge to write a review.
Definitely a must-have.
Brings DI Bass to life!
This is such an awesome plug in to bring a DI bass track to have life in it.
I like to add a bit of drive to it to give the bass tone some extra dimension. It also works killer on electric guitar too! I was amazed when we tracked a semi clean rhythm guitar part thru it.
It also weighs about 90lbs less than the Ampeg head.
Love it! Helps to fit the bass right in the mix. Big an wide sound
i just love this amp simulation.
perfect for "silent" bass recording.
The might be the most accurate amp sim to date.
I've used the real thing quite a bit and it's astounding how true-to-life this sim is.
There is simply no need to carry around the giant, heavy monster any more. Since I bought this plugin every bass player that's come in, amp in hand, has auditioned and chosen the plugin; even though their own amp was right there in the room ready to record.
Really Adds to the Bass in the Mix
Always dreaded recording bass players when they dragged in a huge bass cabinet/head into the studio. Maybe live it sounded great but not always in the studio. In addition many bass players tend to not "dig in" on the strings.
I purchased an Ampeg SVT 200 head and 2x10 cabinet for clients that produced a huge sound when recorded. I became a fan of Ampeg.
When I mixed I never found any bass amp models that worked. I demoed the UAD Ampeg software on a recent mix. I though I already had a good bass mix and then I started to add in the UAD plug. I quickly found a setting that lifted the bass in a way I could not with my usual tools. I had to have that sound so I purchased it and I am excited to have this in my toolkit.
Honestly, I can't record bass without this plugin! It adds so much character to whatever bass I record with. Well done UAD!
Great bass sound
Not comparable to other bass plugins. Very cool sound.
the most authentic emulation ever made for bass!
The most fantastic plugin ever made for bass! fantastic low end ,rich harmonics ! very very accurate sound with many possibilities !
at last lets hear some bass on our mixes!
Greatest svt feeling
I live the way it makes my DI signal turns into a realistic svt sound .
Awesome presets too . A must have .
great amp and very happy with the plugin
I always loved the sound of the tube amps. The plugin does a great job. I just used it in some recordings and are very pleased!!
I hope you're not a vegetarian because this plugin is beefy! I really like the weight it adds to direct signals. I'm looking forward to experimenting with this plugin on other instruments as well to see what kind of craziness I can come up with.
I have played through svt's for years not and this plugin is amazingly close to the real deal. The di'd bass tracks i have done since getting this plugin are stupid good. Easy to mix - sit in the track nicely. Nice Job!
I demoed it and now I want it. Its very very good.
Bass players prayers come through
This is the reason I bought an Apollo 8 interface, and got on the UAD bandwagon.
Really puts the fun back into playing bass in the studio ...you can play without latency, and you get the real tone and response of this iconic amp.
Plus you can build a chain of outboard gear ...like LA2A and Pultec, and design presets for various styles and basses...and have it all back with a snap.
my go-to recording / mix [re]amp
I'm impressed abouth the usability and flexibility of this "device" in my mix setups. It delivers strong analog bass for a wide range of mixes. Together with my AVID 11R and a (guitar) Marshall JCM900 4x12 (for more "light" high gain / distorted sounds) it is a go-to in my toolchain and i feel "complete" in the analog bass section now.
I tried other similar fx like Amplitube or Guitar Rig and I must say this is by far the most natural and musical, you could get clean and saturated tones. Very easy to use, most of times I put this on Aux Send to print both Amp and DI. Fully recommended!
