Fine-tune your sounds with an onboard FX Rack that contains a noise gate, filter controls, and horn on/off

Furthering the SVT Legacy

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

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.

New to me and very impressive

I have most of my Ampeg experience with the old SVT and the B-15, but I took advantage of a UA sale and added this plugin. I like it very much and find the much more granular EQ a real asset when recording a 6 string bass.

Hard to beat

This is my new go to plug-in for my fender jazz bass. I was looking for a clean bass sound to lay the bottom end on some old time instrumentals I recorded and within a minute I had this dialed exactly to where I wanted. Going to remix several previous recorded bass tracks with plugin because the difference is to noticeable. I’m glad I took the jump on this while it was on sale.

This Plug In Amp Takes Care of Business!!!

The search for my preferred Bass tone has now come to an end! I have a real Ampeg SVT-3 Pro amp and I immediately put it up for sale once I used the virtual Universal Audio Plug in. Plenty of thump and I am just so impressed with the tone. I am a big fan of Alice In Chain's Mike Inez and I have always coveted his live tone on such songs as "Would?" I started auditioning the presets with the UA Plug in and Boom! There it was! Perfect Mike Inez tone! Great purchase at a great price too! I hope I find more gems in the UA plug in offering! Thanks a bunch!!!!

Sounds like playing a real Ampeg Amp

The sound is really great. I wanted to sell my bass. I changed my mind, after I played my Sandberg Fredless through that amp simulation. I fell like standing in front of my amp I had in th '80. I compared it to the other simpulation I have from NI and IK, but hey sucked in comparison. Later in the mix, unfortunalely, there was not so much of a difference. But still, it feels better and closer.

Great bass amp plugin!

I purchased the Ampex B-15N and I really love the sound but when I try the SVT-3 Pro I discovered the perfect complement to have on my arsenal all the possible amp bass sounds with a couple of plugins

Sounds like the real thing!

I own this amp. Selected the same cabs I use and wow! It sounds so darn close, I may just pack up my rig and use this for future recording needs. :D Just Awesome!

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.
