Ampeg Introduces SVT Suite Plugin
Ampeg has announced the SVT Suite plugin, which features three models of their most coveted heads: the Heritage 50th Anniversary SVT, the Heritage SVT-CL, and the SVT-4PRO. It’s the first foray into amplifier modeling by the company.
“For the first time ever, we’re offering the amp that redefined rock bass tone in a plugin format,” said Dino Monoxelos, Ampeg Brand Marketing Manager. “No third parties, no proprietary hardware, just straight-up bass tone direct from Ampeg, the most trusted name in bass. And for all those who want SVT tone without having to move a large amp, or make room for it in a small studio, what could be better than having three of our finest SVT heads, a bevy of Ampeg cabinets, and a great selection of mics and effects pedals, all in a single plugin?”
The three amp head models can be paired with eight speaker cabinets. Third-party IRs can also be loaded, while dual-cab and dual-IR modes let two cabinets or IRs be used at once.
“The cabs may be miked with any of six virtual microphones, and you can adjust the positioning of the mic in relation to the cab speaker, as well as blend in one of three stationary room mics,” Ampeg adds.
Further, models of Ampeg’s Liquifier Analog Chorus, Opto Comp Analog Optical Compressor, and Scrambler Bass Overdrive pedals are included along with Rocktaver and Phasifier effects. Finally, they include a virtual version of the SVT-DI studio direct box.
The Ampeg SVT Suite is available now for $199.99.
