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.

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 .....

Awesome

Upgraded from the svt classic that comes with the bundle. At first I was hesitant, but after trying it out in the demo days I had no doubts. The mids are amazing and the cabinet choice is huge. I recommend using the auto when choosing the cabinet if you are using it in unison mode, for instant comparison

When you can't mic up a cabinet

Decided to step up from the Ampeg classic which came with my Apollo Quad and glad I did. The extra functions of choosing between channels, cabs and mics are worth having and add to the versatility. It needed a little help, so by adding a 1176 compressor after helped make this Ampeg punchy and exciting.

Save yourself time, money and effort with this plugin

Don't bother re amping. This also won't break down. You won't have a sore back from moving it. No weird hum or hiss. I had an SVT 5 years back and tracking with this is superior in every way.

Surprised it works good

I have a pedal from Ampeg that is a preamp pedal for bass and the amp sounds thicker but my pedal sounds detailed so it’s hard to compare but for a DI sound meaning the amp simulator you’ll be happy with it , pretty simple to use

Wicked Bass Amp.

I've been trying to get that full Reggae Bass line since my musical realm is mostly digital but I still need that analog feel., The Ampeg SVT-VR Bass Amp does the Job, full rounded Reggae bass.

Bass like it’s supposed to sound without the ear bleeds ! Absolutely spot on! Thank you!

Essential

The scaled-down version that comes with Apollo interfaces is okay, but this is a no-brainer. Just demo it and you'll hear why you need to buy it.
