The sound of Ampeg’s stage bass amps in your DAW
The SVT amps from Ampeg have long been a favorite of some of the most notable bass players out there, including Bootsy Collins, Darryl Jones, Michael Bradford, Chris Wyse and so many more. The tone of the SVT series is instantly recognizable, with a full supple bottom, and a satisfying growl in the midrange, setting the standard by which all bass amps are judged.

Stripped down to the essentials
The newly-released Ampeg SVT-VR “Classic” plugin produces the same authentic tone as the full version, but with only the essential features for incredible simplicity and ease of use. A single complete channel is included, with both ultra-hi and ultra-lo modes, giving you everything you need to get the perfect bass tone without any distractions.

A powerfully simple FX Rack to tailor your tone
As you’d expect from a Plugin Alliance, the SVT-VR Classic comes with a customized FX Rack which includes features like a Power Soak for extra saturation and input gain control to perfect your gain staging. Take advantage of 3 advanced boutique recording chains from Brainworx to fit your bass sound perfectly into the mix.

Features

● Record and re-amp with maximum beefiness and unmatched tube tone of the SVT-VR bass amp, fully endorsed by Ampeg!

● A single easy-to-use channel with “ultra-hi” and “ultra-lo” modes

● FX Rack includes a noise gate, tight and smooth filters, Power Soak, and a horn On/Off function for the cabinets

● 3 boutique recording chains to further tailor your tone
