Marshall Legends Bundle
Marshall® Legends Bundle
its alright, not bad
Im using it right now on a song also the plexiglass free plugin. They sound not bad. Ive never used the real thing to compare to give these plugins a 5. Goto admit though I still like my gt1000 better.
This one is great, try putting distortion before the amp to heat crazy high gain tone - got my strat to sound like a metal machine.
The room mics are great too - so great I wish I could bypass the amp and use just the room mics on some sources
What's up with this one?
I don't like to give bad reviews. Usually someone gives a bad review when they expected something unrealistic and it didn't happen for them. I really like UA products but I'd like to know what processing they use in their videos. Almost every preset for this plugin sounds muddy and dark. I've even gone online to the video and tried to match the settings on the screen to my setup with the same type of guitar. I can get close but mine still doesn't sound as bright. I've owned and used real Marshalls and most of the time they're brighter than you need. With this plugin, even if you crank the treble and presence, and lower the bass, it's still too dark. The Marshall sound is there, but it sounds like there's a piece of foam stuck in front of the speaker. There's plenty of stellar reviews from people, so once again, maybe I'm missing something...
Look like real amp! Very beautiful to use!
Best Amp Models I have tried.
First I bought the Plexi Super Lead, Then the Bluesbreaker. Both were so good I just finished out the bundle. All four amps have a unique sound and are absolutely worth the purchase. I play a Les Paul, a Strat and a Tele and between these four amps I can get any sound I want. Using these amps in the unison slot on my Apollo gives an amazingly accurate simulation. I can't imagine ever micing up an amp again.
Very good amp model
This model captures the essence of the rare silver jubilee which stood out immediately when it was briefly released. With crisp highs (yet not too digital sounding) and easy to dial in classic rock tones it becomes a rather inspiring tool for songwriting, overdubbing leads and just playing for fun. The clean tones are also quite usable and certainly improve a direct-in guitar - perhaps not as versatile for clean tones (it is a Marshall after all) it has a lot of functionality and the control response is pleasing. The presets provide a good starting point and the multi mic interface gives a lot of options although I would like to be able to adjust mic placement a little more. I have mainly used it in Unison on a UA interface which really does feel like playing through an amp, but it works equally well in Pro Tools as an insert effect for re-amping. Although I have a number of amp, cabinet, and mic options available to me and prefer the organic aesthetic of capturing the actual movement of air, sometimes you just want to plug in and play or sketch an idea (or revisit a work in progress) and this is ideal for that. I spent a bit of time dithering as whether it was worth buying another guitar amp simulator, but the unison input was the tipping point for me and this has replaced any other sim as my go to for unison, re-amp and insert processing. Keep an eye on the sales and coupons from UA too!
Sounds like an 800 and has plenty of miking options built in. My most used guitar plugin by far.
As good as the real amp.
I tried the demo version and about 10 minutes later immediately went and bought it. It sounds and have exactly the same feel as the real amp. Simply amazing!
It is Marshall, but...
It is a classic sound, but I like it the clean way. Just before it breaks up there is a sound I love. All that channel strip makes a huge difference comparing to Classic which is a great plugin too. In unison it gives me everything I want and need. Honestly I prefer it to my real Plexi, but maybe I am getting older.
I had been eye-ing this plug-in for YEARS before pulling the trigger on it. I am a huge John Frusciante fan, so naturally, I try to emulate his sound. I had gotten close previously, but my guitar has some pretty rotten pickups and janky connections which proved challenging in trying to get any sound I want, let alone a specific musicians. I'm pretty spectical of plug-ins, too, just because they are so expensive and I always think, "well, they had to figure out how to make the tone so why can't I?"
I plugged into the Silver Jubilee plug-in, put on the dry clean pre-set... and I could not believe how spot on the sound was. It was a literal switch to get that high gain, thick funky Frusciante sound. And using the same setting with my BOSS ds-2 achieves the lead sound, too!
My favorite part though, is how motivating and inspiring it is to play with it. I have re-found the fun again of playing guitar. While it is expensive, I highly recommend this plug-in if you want a very realistic experience of experimenting with an amp head and mics.
Another Softube wonder!
Very well made plugin, close to the original Bluesbreaker tone… If you’re looking to add “woman tone” to your arsenal, look no further!
the only marshall amp i like
once i ve faced this amp while doing live sound back in london, was one of most vivid sonic experiences. of course i could not resist to have this color fo creative purposes. thanks.
I Was A Fender Only Guy
I still love Fender but I'm having so much fun and learning so much about the Marshall sound. These amp sims are great!
Fantastic amp with organic sound, sustain and feel….

A must have

Slash & Frusciante playing in my room!
Only does one sound, but does it better than any other plugin
I have been searching for an old school Marshall sound with plenty of low end and this is the only plugin that I have found capable of this. Does not have the "fizzy" high end that makes it sound digital. The room mics do a better job than adding a convolution reverb to a dry plugin. Not very flexible, but I do not need it to be.
Heaven for a plug-in
Test drive this thing for yourself.
I love it, but might not work for you.
Great tone in my book.
I tried this with an EMG 81/60 loaded ESP and it was terrible. Plugged an old Strat straight into the HiZ with this thing on Unison and the entire universe collapsed and I was reborn again as a fish.
The sound of Rock 'N' Roll.
This is the closest to the real thing that I've tried.
It just does what I expect it to do and does it brilliantly. A must have basic amp.
