Ampeg SVT-VR

Ampeg SVT-VR

Overview

The original high-powered, all-tube bass amp by Ampeg, exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo.

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 — exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo 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.

The Brainworx team has developed some of the best amp simulations out there, and the SVT VR is in our Top 5 for sure. 

Highlights

  • Track and reamp with the burly, unmistakable tube tone of the legendary SVT bass amp.
  • Harness the power of the SVT’s classic 8x10 cabinet, captured through Brainworx´s NEVE VXS console.
  • 23 different Recording Chains with a selection of mics, cabinets, and amazing outboard gear.
  • UAD-2 Exclusive, and UNISON enabled for the best realtime tracking experience.

The SVT plugin sounds pretty damn good. Maybe even better than some of my recordings of the real deal.
