The Marshall that redefined the
sound of rock — again.

Introduced in 1975, the Marshall JMP 2203 amplifier ushered in a new era of Marshall rock dominance. The JMP 2203 — which became the JCM800 in 1981 — offered varying degrees of intense, modern-sounding crunch and bold clean tones. Over the ensuing decades, the 2203 became a go-to for artists ranging from Jeff Beck and Andy Summers, to Tom Morello, Judas Priest, Slayer, and the Pixies’ Joey Santiago.

Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Marshall JMP 2203 plug-in is a thorough emulation of this pioneering amp, down to its four EL34 power tubes and its sensitive, musical high-gain preamp. It also offers powerful multi-mic sounds for a range of professional studio tones.

Now You Can:

Use your Apollo with Unison™ technology to track through the only authentic Marshall JMP 2203 emulation — with no latency

Re-amp previously recorded tracks with any UAD-2 hardware

Dial-in perfect studio amp tones with two different mic channels and five different mic types

Fine-tune your guitar tones with 50 presets by legendary AC/DC engineer Tony Platt

Capturing the Ultimate JMP 2203

Capturing the Ultimate JMP 2203

To model the JMP 2203, Marshall loaned Softube’s engineers an original, all stock, 1977 JMP 2203 head from its own museum. Pairing it with a Marshall 1960B 4x12 equipped with Celestion GT12-75 speakers, Softube thoroughly emulated the original amp, right down to its touch-sensitive preamp section and crunchy 3-D clang.

Versatile Marshall Tones and More

Versatile Marshall Tones and More

The Marshall JMP 2203 plug-in expertly models one of the most sonically distinct Marshalls ever made. Its simple layout, High and Low sensitivity inputs, and dynamic preamp offers a ton of textures, from dense distortion to powerful, attitude-laden clean/crunch sounds.

Voiced by a Legend

Voiced by a Legend

Producer/engineer Tony Platt has recorded some of the most classic Marshall tones ever committed to tape — most notably AC/DC’s landmark albums, Highway to Hell and Back in Black. Softube enlisted Platt to capture exquisite cabinet and microphone placements using his Platinum-approved, tried-and-true mic recipes. You can choose from 50 Platt-designed presets, or craft your own tones.

Open up the plug-in’s Channel Strip section, and easily dial-in your sounds with a two channel mixer with five essential microphone options per channel. Along with individual Pan and Volume controls for each channel, you can tweak your tones further with global Input Gate, and three-band EQ with sweepable mids.

Unison™ Technology for Authentic JMP 2203 Tones

Unison™ Technology for Authentic JMP 2203 Tones

The interaction of your guitar’s pickups to an amp’s front end is crucial to capturing the tone and feel of the amplifier.

JMP sounds ok but stereo recording fiddly and costs an extra plug-in to make it work stereo

Sounds ok but the stereo output is not easy to record - you have to place another plugin (a fender amp, not the JMP - costing more money!) in the Unison stage, send to the aux and place the JMP on the aux rack. I bought it because I wanted to record stereo - it could be done by simply allowing the input channel to switch to stereo! A bit dissapointed TBH

Ultimate tone machine!

It`s amazing how good this thing sounds, and not just the tone of the real amp but feel too, and that means a lot for me. Best modeled amp i`ve ever tried, anywhere!
Perfect for project/home studios, no more volume problems or anoying room reflections.
Thanks UA

Grande!!

Sono in possesso di molte simulazioni di amplificatori uad e posso dire che le simulazioni uad/softube sono le migliori.
Reattive al punto giusto oltre che molto simili alle originali.
Ho fatto dei test mettendo in fronte vari overdrive a pedale, analogici ed anche qui la risposta è molto soddisfacente.
Ottimo lavoro!

Marshall JMP 2203

It's very convenient to use. There are indeed some Marshall JMP 2203 timbres. Sound quality is different from the real one. Maybe it's impossible to simulate reality.

I have used most amp plugins out there last 15 years. This is the closest i have ever come to my real Marshall amp. Kudos to you Softube!!!

C'est du Marshall quoi!

Très bonne émulation du fameux 2203, par contre je préfère utiliser l'orignal car je peux placer mes micros comme je le souhaite.
Mais cette version est vraiment fidèle à l'original.

Great amp

I initially bought the Plexi and was very happy, so then completed the Marshall bundle following the evolution of guitar rock sound. Great amps, all of them!
