Bass Amp Room's ready for you, but are you ready for it? This plug-in is flat-out loaded with the low-end vibe you need to fill out your bass sound. The idea behind the plug-in was simple: hook you up with the best possible sound quality while making awesome tones quick and easy to dial in. That's why Softube's Bass Amp Room gives you a way-classic 1970s bass amplifier, three distinctive speaker cabinets, and mics you can easily click and drag around to achieve "that" sound. Excellent results, fast workflow: that's Bass Amp Room.

Softube Bass Amp Room Bass Amplifier and Cabinet Modeling Plug-in at a Glance:
  • Sounds awesome - get the tone you want in seconds, not hours
  • Let's talk possibilities: from classic to heavy to modern, you can nail it
  • Cool "D.I." control to tweak - just like you've got it plugged in
Sounds awesome - get the tone you want in seconds, not hours

You're looking for bass sounds that rule, that's why you're reading this. And while you could definitely haul in a back-breaking bass rig and spend forever picking the right mic position, you're wanting to save the fuss and go with a plug-in. Cool. Not all plug-ins, though, are the fuss-free, instant tonal answer you're looking for: but this one is. Rather than give you menus for days and eight trillion possible amp/speaker combinations to labor over trying out, Softube made Bass Amp Room all about putting you in touch with great tone - fast. We'll dig more into that in the next little section.

Let's talk possibilities: from classic to heavy to modern, you can nail it

Bass Amp Room loads you up with one classic bass amplifier head - a 1970s favorite originally designed as a guitar amp... but quickly snatched up by bassists for its versatile tonal nirvana. Since you've got your amp head selected, you've got your choice of three speaker cabinets. For those industry-standard fat bass tones - plenty of low end, plenty of definition - run your sound through "The Classic." It's a trusty 8x10". Looking to take your sound in a more "rock" direction... focused, and hard? You're going to want to use Bass Amp Room's "The Rocker," a 4x12". If you're wanting to get really twisted on conventions, we highly recommend "The Odd Bird." It's an open-back 1x12" - no, not the usual bass player choice, but it's got awesome tone for the studio. Whatever you choose, you can easily drag and drop the microphone around the cabinet until you find that "sweet spot." It's really like you're in a room with a bass amp. The Bass Amp Room, if you will.

Cool "D.I." control to tweak - just like you've got it plugged in

This one's fun. Softube gives you separate D.I. controls to toy with. Just as though you've got an amp in the studio... the mic on one channel, the D.I. on another... you can have the same mixing/matching/blending fun with Bass Amp Room. There's a D.I. limiter to tame the transients and you've also got the ability to blend the D.I. with the amp signal - go distorted with the amp, for example, then bring back some low end with the D.I. Having both options really lets you round out that sound- and since you're using a plug-in, not an old recorded track, you can use this feature creatively as you get the bass to sit right at the bottom of the mix. Sweet.

Plugged this in and the results were immediate. It gives you the sound you can only get with a cabinet and amp. The're are a variety of plugins out there and I've tried a lot of other plugins but this is diffidently the one. The bass is richer and fuller and sits right in the mix. Saved tons of time trying to getting TONS of great tones. Thanks Softube!!

No More Commitment Issues

I recently used the Softube Bass Amp Room on a songwriting session and my bassist and I were blown away by the sound! I own Guitar Rig, Amplitube, and several others. The guitar tones are great, the bass always feels lacking, so we rarely commit to tape. We don't have that problem now! As soon as I had a good level coming into the DAW, I put on the Bass Amp Room plugin and immediately fell in love! Even a few days later listening to the rough tracks, I still can't believe what I'm hearing. But don't take my word for it.

Great Plugin!

You will dial in that bass track quickly. I find myself using it on every session. The presets are truly useful and require only minor adjustments, if it all. The only reason I gave it 4 and half stars is because I don't find dragging the virtual microphone to a different position as dramatic a sound change as metal amp room. Overall I would highly recommend this product.

Improving my bass sound

I was looking to improve a bass sound in a specific work, that bass was missing precision. I had not much time to find a solution but there was various options:-telling the bassist to change his bass pickups.-telling the bassist to buy a better preamp -telling the bassist don't worry I'm looking for a relevant solution.I tried the demo and it was like "...hey..! Great... I've got my solution..." The plugin gives you great sonic possibilities and isn't that expensive.It was then 89$ in a holyday deal moment.Pro: -great sonic enhancements possibilities-not very expensive...(89$)-fast buy and easy to activateCon: -too big use of CPU resources (at least 15% of an Intel I7 six core 3,5GHz: too much)-graphic interface not scalable and look like in the picture: as if the picture was cut.I feel satisfied of this buy... but at that price...
