The legendary all-tube bass behemoth for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.

Developed by Brainworx, the Ampeg SVT-VR Bass Amplifier plug-in offers an exacting emulation of the classic 300-watt all-tube behemoth and its equally legendary 8x10 cabinet for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.

The legendary SVT bass amp is the result of Ampeg’s desire to create the, “biggest, nastiest bass amplifier the world has ever seen.” Mission accomplished. The SVT has righteously stood the test of time, regardless of genre, with unmatched power and tone.

Track and reamp with the burly, unmistakable tube tone of the immortal SVT bass amp

Harness the power of the SVT’s classic 8x10 cabinet

High-Powered History

High-Powered History

Introduced in 1969, the Ampeg SVT (Super Valve Technology) has remained the reigning king of high-powered tube bass tone. Featuring six 6550 power tubes and a monstrous, back-breaking speaker cabinet, the SVT quickly found favor with players who needed to fill arenas with thunderous low end, punishing mids, and musical high end. From Bootsy Collins to Tony Levin, Chris Squire to Robert Trujillo, hundreds, if not thousands of bassists have called on the SVT to deliver huge, unmistakably rugged bass tones.

Tons of Tones

Tons of Tones

The Ampeg SVT-VR Bass Amplifier plug-in provides all of the raw power and punch of the hardware, putting a raging beast directly into your DAW. Whether you’re tracking through the SVT with an Apollo interface, or reamping an existing bass track with any UAD-2 hardware, the SVT-VR plug-in offers myriad tones for any genre.

SVT FX Rack

SVT FX Rack

The Ampeg SVT-VR plug-in features tools that greatly add to its versatility when tracking bass guitar. The FX Rack features an onboard noise gate, Power Soak, and pre/post switchable EQ filter controls, allowing you to put the finishing touches — before or after mixdown — on your tones. But it’s the SVT-VR plug-in’s 23 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. It’s akin to an engineer patching you through various chains and mic placements.

Great

We are in the process of creating an advanced abelton live looping system. Starting with bottom end we are going into a fender mb1200 reamping unit into 2 acoustic bass cabs for the bass , kick and low Tom. While testing all the unison bass plugins we tested this one and instantly recognized the - how many more times Led Zeppelin bass sound with a massive low end. If you are looking for a massive low end presence and sustain with a higher hertz attack sound this is the plugin for you.

Good Sound

This plugin really fills out the sound when I plug in my acoustic/electric bass guitar, allowing me to sculpt the low end to match whatever tone I need for my current project. This has offered such great versatility in tone for my bass guitar that I previously did not have when plugging in with DI.

Love it!

Mixing bass guitar was always a challenge for me. This plugin changed it all! I got a free but limited version of this plugin in a previous UAD software upgrade, and it was music to my ears! It sat in my mix perfectly, so the full version was a no brainer! All of my bass playing friends really enjoy this plugin, and I do too!

If You Have a Hofner..

Buy this plugin!! It makes a Violin Bass sound absolutely SUPERB! I tried the B15.. too muddy.. With this, and flatwounds, you can slap, play McCartney.. funk. pop.. Motown.. Anything.. haven’t tried the Jazz Bass yet, but I have high expectations.. It RULES with the Hofner!

A must have !

I write primarily Rock style instrumental cues so I was naturally led to the SVT sound. I know it well and I wasn't disappointed.

Sound of stability

Thick sound that does not choose a genre.
Especially the best match for jazz bass!

This is GREAT!

I would never be able to dial in these tones in the room I have to work with. I can slot bass tracks to sit right where they need to be, and tweak on the fly. No need to carry an Ampeg down the stairs. Thanks. Looking forward to the Gallien-Krueger plug.

Great sounding

I'm a guitarist that also track bass when I have to :-) I just use one of the presets, tweak it a little bit and I'm good to go. Usually sits great in the mix.

Very nice bass amp

Very nice. More modern sounding than my B15N so between the two of them I've got all the tones I want covered.

Just Like The Real Thing

Really great sounding plugin. Sounds just like a real Ampeg SVT-VR. A beautiful analog sound that can go from warm and fat to knarly and overdriven. Very versatile.
