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.

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.

Sits Perfectly In The Mix!

I love it. So useful for many basses. Now that I've got my input gain sorted out (I was hitting all these amps too hard initially) I have great control over a clean or dirty sound with the magic mids that the tube Ampegs have that make them sit perfectly in a mix. It's in my 'go to' bass channel strip.

Bass

Been looking for a decent bass amp simulation for years, at last ..I won't need to look any further - sits great in a mix with a few small tweaks and knob turning would recommend..!

Wish you could bridge the A and B channels

This is an amazing plug-in. Sounds just like the VR. I just wish you could bridge the two channels so you had more control like you can do with the real amp. This is on my wish list UA!

Amazing emulation

A giant leap over the free Ampeg SVT lite. Worth buying, even I don't play a bass. Super handy on bass synths for tone shaping purposes.

Impeccable

I was gonna get by with the Legacy version, but once I demoed this one it was night and day.

Excellent digital bass amp for DI recording.

This was the warmest sounding digital bass amp I’ve ever tried. I like the simple interface more than the SVT-3 Pro, but it was a really tough decision because that one sounds awesome too. Buy both if you can, but this one just felt more right to me—I’ll probably get at least one or two more UAD bass amps.

Nice

As usual a great product, I’ve never used a bass amp before, but the reason I like it, is how it lets a bass sit much easier in a mix

Its all they say it is.

Just purchased this, like most legacy plugins, they sound good, but just like the others I have upgraded from Legacy, its instant improvement. You won’t regret getting it, small dsp compared to guitar amp dsp usage.
Tell ya what, open the legacy version that comes with your interface, record a few bars, then start the demo for this plugin .....
