Classic Bass Flavor In a Contemporary Package - The Ampeg SVT-3 PRO

A true powerhouse in countless bass setups of legends like Metallica and Primus as well as the likes of Bootsy Collins. In 2019 the SVT-3 PRO is still a bass amp in a league of its own. Highly admired for its beefy all-around capabilities, this plugin does an outstanding job of blending the time-honored sound of the original SVT while leaving plenty of options on the table for achieving something tighter and more modern.

Bold Bass in the Digital Age

Another meticulously executed emulation job by the Brainworx team, the SVT-3 PRO Bass Amp plugin is an exacting digital replica of the tube preamp and the solid-state power section. Offering all of the sound sculpting possibilities of the original amp! Brainworx did not hold back when modeling the amp’s hybrid circuit, the graphic EQ and midrange selector, creating an endless amount of possibilities for your bass tones. The SVT-3 PRO plugin builds on the original hardware and easily gives players a tough tube-driven front end with a slightly lighter 450-Watt solid-state power section, providing for an overall well rounded and thick tone.

FX and Pro Recording Chains

To top it all off, the Ampeg SVT-3 PRO FX Rack adds a whole lot more options for tracking the perfect bass sound. In the FX rack, you can use the professional noise gate and a Power Soak along with switchable filter controls. But it’s the SVT-3 PRO’s 27 amazing recording chains that take the plugin to another level, giving you maximum control and options when crafting your sound. These RCs were recorded at Brainworx Germany, through their Neve VXS72 console. They allow you to run your bass through a variety of highly coveted mics, cabinets and carefully chosen outboard gear, effectively offering you mix-ready sound options.
