Furthering the SVT Legacy
By giving players the gritty, tube-driven front end and a lighter, more portable 450-watt solid-state power section, the SVT-3 PRO continues the proud, toneful, SVT tradition. Brainworx expertly modeled the amp’s hybrid circuit as well as its 9-band graphic EQ and 5-position midrange selector for a dizzying array of sonic possibilities.
SVT FX Rack
The Ampeg SVT-3 PRO plug-in features tools that greatly add to its versatility when tracking bass. The FX Rack features an onboard noise gate, host-syncable Power Soak, and pre/post switchable EQ filter controls, allowing you to put the finishing touches — before or after mixdown. But it’s the SVT-3 PRO plug-in’s 26 Recording Chain presets that give you the ultimate in flexibility. Captured through Brainworx’s ultra-rare Neve VXS72 console, these presets let you audition your sounds through a variety of vintage mics, cabinets, and outboard gear.
Unison™ Technology for Apollo Interfaces
Harnessing UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, the Ampeg SVT-3 PRO plug-in gives you the impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviors that have contributed to making this iconic amp one of the most recorded bass amps in history.

Ampeg ampli e Lexicon Reverb
Recently, in addition to the Ampeg amplifier, I also bought a Lexicon 480 reverb. Both seem very expensive to me in relation to the results they give. Specifically, the Lexicon has a very bad sound: maybe because I don't know how to adjust it.

Perfect for Live Tracking
Looking for an amp sim to compliment my direct bass signal, I had tried the Ampeg SVT VRClassic and found it to be a little too tubby for my tastes. I demoed the SVT-PRO3 and loved the flexibility of it. Easy to dial in on a variety of styles. Picked it up immediately.
I’m using it for bass and synth basses and it delivers a great tone everytime, very, very happy I bought it!

Sounds a little like Ampeg.....but nothing more
but not compare if you own for Example an old SVPro Preamp.....i compared with similar settings and the UA SVT without cabinet......AU has overhyped basses and no punchy mids at all.....sorry.....if you want a first class bass sound there is no alternative to original Equipment...if you want to bring a little charackter of Ampeg as a bedroom producer to your bass tracks, it is ok....
Thunder in the box
This one I use by far the most of any of the UAD bass amp plug-ins. It is so versatile, getting me Rich clean tones with tons of body and enormous, growling tones when I crank the tube gain. Definitely one of the best plug-ins I’ve bought from them!

Before buying this amp, I was struggling with shaping my Bass through tons of plugins, it saved my @$$. Specially when I can put it on my UA Console and hear it in Realtime !!! Sped up my work flow, and made my basslines shine on the song.
Great, solid sound
I'm loving this plugin. The bas fits in the mix nicely. Tight solid and full sounding P-bass through this plugin.
My bass player insisted I get this, he loves it, that’s the real goal for me,if you love the sound you’ll play better n he does wi this
your sale price is exaggerated
Plugin is great. I just bought it from plugin-alliance web. There is cost 29,99 usd. Your sale price is exaggerated.
Ampeg is great
my Fender pj telecaster bass sound great with UAD Ampeg... really great...
Great sounding bass amp.
Don’t need real one~!!!
Plug, find tone and listen record, Here is the most stable bass sound~!!
Great amp modeling!
You can always count on UAD to create a great amp model! It sounds and feels like a real amp!
Better than the real thing
I still don’t believe how amazing its recording through an amp plugin which sounds like the the real thing, with zero latency, with all the best emulations in the chain and directly to the daw. Its so fast and easy that its better than recording a real amp. You cant set your perfect chain and it will never change along the recording process and you will have the final sound, already processed in the mix as well for monitoring in the recording stage.
sound like a real amp
sound and feel like a real amp and very usefull for recording
Meilleur plug in ampeg
Juste incroyable, j’ai revendu mon ampeg svt-3, la simu est parfaite, precise et malléable. De tres loin le meilleur plug in que j’ai testé
Fantastic bass amp....
Make my bass sound so big...
This plugin is truly amazing. It is clearly designed for digital recording, and it does not come up short. I've been using Amplitube's SVT softamp for years, and I've had pretty good results. But then I bought this, and using it as a Unison preamp with an 1176 alongside, it is truly incredible. I am blown away each time I use it with my Fender American Jazz bass. I no longer fear printing to Pro Tools because it just sounds so true, and good! Well done, UAD. Thank you!
