IK make the claim that Bassists will immediately feel like they are really playing through the high-end amp they are only used to hearing in the best hardware gear. The plug-in features ultra-accurate modeling of the most sought-after Ampeg gear, with unique DSMâ„¢ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology, â€˜Powered by AmpliTubeâ€™, which IK tell us is used to emulate analog and tube circuitry down to a detail of finesse, which cannot be offered by any other effects modeler, resulting in a truly accurate dynamic response carved at the highest level of precision.
What you get is a complete bass-rig plug-in with multiple amps, cabinets, stomps and tuner. There are over 20 bass gear emulations, including classic Ampeg bass amp models like the SVT Classic, B15W Portaflex â€˜Flip Topâ€™, BA500 and SVT4 PRO, Ampeg stomps like the SPC-OT Octaver or the SCP-OD Overdrive, and cabinets like the SVT410H or SVT810E.
Hereâ€™s an extract from IKâ€™s own press releaseâ€¦
â€œMix and match between amps and cabinets of the most sought-after Ampeg gear to produce 24 amazing bass amp combinations. Plus, youâ€™ll have a complete bass pedal board with 6 fully configurable stomp effects. In addition, select among 8 classic bass effects crafted after classic Ampeg stomps and other must-have vintage gear. Add a tuner and separate direct/amped signal path for a complete software bass rig.
The Ampeg SVX interface offers 4 individual components: separate Amp Head, Miked Cabinets, plus a Stomp Pedal board organized the same way a bass rig is laid out. Two parallel signal paths make it possible to have separate direct bass sounds, mixed with different processed amped signals for an instant, top-quality studio sound anywhereâ€¦whether you are recording or jamming!
Ampeg SVX is easy to use with hundreds of presets ready to go. For the first time any musician, songwriter and producer can have a complete, â€˜all-in-oneâ€™ solution for bass recording. Not just for bass players, Ampeg SVX will give you that great bass sound you just canâ€™t get by plugging directly into a console or computer.â€�
