    IMHO Nothing like my amps...

    by S. Woolgar . 2 out of 5 stars

    I have/have played these amps, they do not sound anything like that. Dynamics are not the same. If I could get a refund and get something else, I would.

    I wish I had done the demo version before pulling the trigger. Of all of the plugins I have this one (and the metal amp room) are the only two I am not satisfied with.

    Not as good as it could be

    by D. White . 2 out of 5 stars

    While this definitely is an improvement over trying to build an amp sound out of eqs and other fx, I found it has the same problem as a lot of other amp sims - it just doesn't sound, feel, or react like an amp. Especially in the area of overdrive to distortion. Heavy distortion is fizzy and annoying. Overdrive is unconvincing. It doesn't have the feel that comes with driving a speaker in a room.
    And less you think I'm an analog snob, I've been using a pedal based amp sim (HD500) for over a year now and realIy enjoy it - it works where others have failed.
    Hopefully UAD will pick up the ball and build their own amp sim to their exacting standards. This third party one is not for me.

    Substandard

    by B. Muehlemann . 2 out of 5 stars

    For me UA is the most experienced company when it comes to modelling analog gear, so why not make your own amp sim in a quality that one would expect from a company like you?
    All of these 3 amps sound like poorly recorded amps in an even poorer sounding room. The Vox is easily the best out of the three, but Vox has never been my cup of tea. The Marshall is thin sounding and has none of the power of the original. The Fender finally sounds not too bad clean when you add spring and convolution reverb but cranked or with with the bright switch on - no thanks.
    After all you'll need some serious tweaking with additional plugins to get a usable sound so the whole concept of am easy, user-friendly plugin falls short.

    Not impressed

    by J. Abbott . 2 out of 5 stars

    Works ok I guess but there are a lot better amp sims out there
    Kind of an underwhelming product for $ 200

    I guess so

    by C. (Buck) Anderson . 2 out of 5 stars

    If you have ever played any of these amps you will no they are not even close. I guess if you don't a decent amp. this is a good way to go. I own a silver jubilee and a very old deluxe. I now play through a Hot Cat 15. I do know what they are supposed to sound like. I was going to buy the bass room but think I will pass on that one

    Why not a Amp SIm from UAD?

    by D. Gaschen . 2 out of 5 stars

    Ich mag den Overdrive und Cruch -Sound nicht. Er lässt sich zwar dynamisch spielen, den Klang muss ich aber stark mit dem EQ bearbeiten, dass er klingt.

    Disappointed

    by M. Knutsson . 2 out of 5 stars

    Im not impressed by these amp simulators. They sound harsh and thin.
    Im very impressed of a lot of the UA plugins i owned/tested, but this bundle was a big dissapoinment. I compared it to Avids Eleven and Softube just doesnt sound as good.
    I hope UA will develop a really good amp simulation plugin in the future.

    Not up to snuff.

    by B. Chapman . 2 out of 5 stars

    The idea of being able to track with an amp sim on the front end has got some appeal, but the bottom line here is they just don't sound as good as many plugin sims. And, why would you want to limit what you can do to the sound after tracking? Axe FX is still the best thing going, if you can't mic up an amp. It's expensive, but a lot of bang for the buck. I fully support the idea of UA producing their own new fangled amp sim. I think they can probably do a better job than this.
