A virtual bass amp plug-in that is easy of use and offers a huge range of great sounds.
Softube's Bass Amp Room plug-in was designed to handle all your bass amp needs, from dirty rock to modern clean, keeping two equally important goals in mind. The first was to give the user the best possible sound quality. The latter was to create an intuitive plug-in which allows for a really fast workflow. Time is money, but cutting down on time shouldn't mean you have to accept poor results.
Bass Amp Room consists of a model of a classic bass amplifier, three distinctive speaker cabinets with click-and-drag mics, and a blendable DI section with tone controls and a limiter. That's it. And it's all you need to create a unique signature sound - the strength lies in the ease of use of the individual blocks and the huge range of sounds these can produce when combined.
In short, Bass Amp Room is all about getting a sound you know you can trust, and getting it quickly, from a plug-in you don't need a degree in computer science to handle.
Authenic Amp Modeling
Although being designed as a guitar amp, this 70s amp has proven to be an excellent choice for bass players. A thick and solid preamp distortion without any fizz lets you crank it up without losing the low end.
The power amp has a more traditional power amp distortion (controlled by the Master Volume knob), but at extreme settings it will start to sound more broken.
The High/Low switch wasn't a part of the original amp, but was added to give you a cleaner and fatter sound when necessary.
Industry standard 8x10" for fat rock solid bass tones with lots of low end and lots of definition.
For rock sounds, a 4x12" is the given choice. Focused, hard and sounds just as it should.
The Odd Bird
An open back 1x12" isn't exactly the most usual choice for a bass player, but in a studio it works just excellent!
D.I. and Mix Panel
Separate D.I. Controls
The D.I. is separate from the amp and cabs, and allows you to tailor the direct signal separately from the amped signal, just like in real life. The tone controls are specially designed for bass and are extremely fast to work with.
The one knob limiter tames the transients in the direct bass
Blend Amp and D.I.
The possibility to blend the D.I. signal with the amp signal allows you to get a huge range of sounds. For instance, set the amp on a really distorted signal, and blend in some low end from the D.I.
