Learn how to use the Eden WT-800 plug-in to enhance a DI bass track by blending its different cabinets and microphones.
On a World Tour
Unlike vintage bass amps such as Ampeg B-15 and Ampeg SVT, the Eden WT800 delivers tones flexible enough to be used for R&B, hip-hop, metal, and jazz. Like the original hardware, the Eden WT800 plug-in sports a 5-way semi-parametric EQ, a built-in compressor designed specifically for bass, and easy bi-amping. Finally, use the WT800 plug-in’s Enhance control to boost lows and highs, and cut the mids, for Eden’s ultra-modern, scooped bass tone.
The Eden WT800 plug-in includes spot-on models of Eden’s top-of-the-line 4x10 and 1x15 cabinets, which can be used simultaneously. Each cabinet was miked with four high-end microphones, selected and positioned by bassist/producer Troy Antunes. You also get a DI output that can be blended with the cabinet by using the plug-in’s full mixer section, to create the perfect, custom tone.
Unison™ Technology for Apollo Interfaces
Harnessing UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, the Eden WT800 plug-in gives you the impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviors that have contributed to making this amp a favorite for bassists the world over.

Eden® WT800 Bass Amplifier
I play bass as a living since nearly 30 years and would say I am picky about my sound and frankly I’ve had a hard time finding satisfying software that emulates good bass amplification. The Ampeg series aren’t really what I would have wanted (played Ampeg rigs for many years) for my taste. I just bought the Eden plugin cuz I had a good offer on it and did not expect to be so pleasantly surprised. It has a ”magic” sparkle to my bass regardless if I’m tracking or mixing. I really like what they’ve done with this. It can be very neutral or if you want, you can dial in some flavour. I find I barely touch the controls.
My new go to bass amp
This Eden was the last thing I thought was going to sound, and now I find myself using this one exclusively. I regret getting the Gallien Krueger and the Ampeg, they loose this one big time. I am a bass player with a ton of gear and basses and I am really picky, just thought I would mention it.
Nagyon jó kis plug in!

Great sound but...
Sounds really great but there are GUI problems in Logic X 10.6.2 . You can see just a black surface. Please UA fix it...For that reason only one star, when fixed 5 stars!
While I use the UAD Ampeg bass amps a lot the EDEN offers a more contemporary sound to my ears ... works great for bass solos where you really want to hear the upper mods and sibilance of the bass strings! As usual UAD captures it! Thank you!!!
Really really amazing. Never more without!
Eden Bass Amp Is A Champ!
This is the Bass tone I have been looking for in my recordings. This plug in has a nice warm bass sound that rounds off the edges of a Gibson Thunderbird and even a Rickenbacker Bass. I have a great MESA SUBWAY bass rig I use for live performances and now thanks to this UA Eden WT800 Bass Amp plug in I have the best recorded bass sound I have ever had. It’s truly amazing and worth every penny you spend on it.
Really versatile amp, the eq gives me tone shaping options for days!
Versatile and deep Character
It is really brilliant, wakes up even the most rundown basses.
Man, I love this amp / plugin. It's my go to. I haven't used any of my others bass amp vst's since i purchased it.
Just like the real deal
Great bass sound.
It covers all my customers needs towards any musical style. My personal go to bass amp plug in. Nice work guys.
No brainier, it just works.

Nice warm Bass sound
The WT800 works exactly like the real amp, very warm sound.
Amazing bass amp with a great depht and warm sound. To must have.
Full realistic sounding
It reminds me how good those Eden gear are.
such a rich sound
I absolutely love this plugin. The sound is so full. I've been going back on previous recordings and replacing many of my bass amp plugins with this one. Superb control.
It works exactly as it should. It is not as easy to fit in the mix as others but it is very cool.
Eden as good as the one I used to own!!
Years ago I would have said that simulating a bass or guitar amp was just not possible and at that time it was true. Everything sounded not even close to the real deal. However, with the speed that technology is running at programs like these have become so good that it is flat out amazing! What you can accomplish in the box blows my mind everyday I sit down in front of my computer and play. Don't misunderstand, I still play the parts (guitar, bass, and vocal at the very least) but I haven't used an amp to record in a long time. I used to tour with the EDEN WT800 and did so with several different bands ranging from funk rock to classic rock and even country rock. Eden always had a fitting sound for me and the same is true with this plugin! Every sound is there and sounds and feels so much like playing in a studio with your cabinet in another room with a couple mic's on it that it simply is astonishing!
Amazing for tracking
Full disclosure: I haven't had this long enough to really put it through the paces. I bought initially for tracking/monitoring. It's really fantastic-- especially now that everything is being done remote. The bass sounds and "feels" like it should. You could dial in some intense EQ curves, but the color and tone with all EQ at high noon and a the Enhance around 9:00 does the job really well. It has heft and depth in the lows without getting mushy-- but crank the input gain and you'll get some hair on it, if you want.
