    I like it!

    by D. Chamberlin . 4 out of 5 stars

    While not being crazy about softube's guitar amp sims, I really like Bass Amp Room. I can get some nice growl and warmth that sounds very real and the DI section is just great. I'm already getting a good DI sound using an Adesign's Reddi so it's nice to be able to blend the two easily and naturally. Good job you guys!

    Nice to finally have UA Amp Modeling

    by M. Gervasi . 4 out of 5 stars

    I've been a long time user of amp and effect modeling from the long time makers of that line of products (Line 6, Amplitube) and this is a very good sounding set. I like that you can bypass the amp or the cab model. I had a 24 track mix using other modeling and did a test switching over to these and the sound was very good. However using an Apollo Duo, UAD Duo, and Solo I maxed out on resources for tracks already recorded so to save resources in the future I will definitely use the Apollo to record the tracks wet and save the processing for the Studer/Ampex and other processors. Also would be nice if they sold each set separately as I don't usually use any metal type amp sounds.
    Otherwise it's great.

    Limited but good sounding

    by B. Muehlemann . 4 out of 5 stars

    While the vintage amp room doesn't convince me at all, this one sounds really nice. Although its a bit limited with just one amp (probably modeled on a hiwatt) and 3 cabs, its very easy to use, so the concept adds up. The DI section is great. Its much noisier compared to amplitube but also sounds much more alive. What i miss is a 15" cab and the possibility to combine multiple cabs. After all its the best sounding bass amp sim I've heard so far but i wish there was a bit more flexibility. I just don't know yet whether i will buy the UAD or the native version, i don't really see the point in recreating plugins that already exist.

    Vintage Amp Room

    by F. Linkous . 4 out of 5 stars

    I think Soft Tube Vintage Amp Room sounds fine. I've tweaked with it a bit and I'm happy with the overall results.. I don't agree with the negative reviews because I also have to tweak with my 62 deluxe and 66 reverberocket to get the results I'm looking for as well.... I've used several amp simulators over the years and so far soft tube is my favorite. I'm not saying it's time to sell your vintage amp collection but I will say soft tube is a nice tool to have.

    Good but not Great

    by J. Brown-McCue . 4 out of 5 stars

    I've found uses for almost each of these simulated amps so they aren't useless.. I prefer Guitar Rig though.
    It would be cool if they had offered gate on each amp, I believe it's only on the Metal.
    It takes up a lot of cpu. Good but could have been better.

    Great amp

    by S. Burt . 4 out of 5 stars

    The lack of choice in a world of amp sims with every one ever made is the strength here. They have focused on quality not quantity.

    Also sounds stellar on synths and really brings them alive.

    Soft tube amp

    by S. BELFIORE . 4 out of 5 stars

    Works very well, and adds great bottom. Very easy to work, and has a lot of good sounds to chose from.

    I wasn't sure at first...

    by F. Whitehead . 4 out of 5 stars

    After using more processed amp sims such as Native's Guitar Rig and Scuffham's S Gear (which are also great amp sims) I wasn't sure that I liked Softube's Amp Room at first. If you want effects (compression/delay/chorus/doublers/reverbs) then this isn't your amp sim. But, if you just want a great tube amp tone that fits in the mix nicely, this is perfect! Very easy to get great sounds! My favorite amp currently is the Fender model.. Crank the volume, treble, and middle to 10 and keep the bass around 2... Control how dirty you want your signal by how much signal you are sending the amp by the pre. That setting is my go to with my Fender Tele but it also works great with a Les Paul and a Gretsch. The bass amps are killer, too!

    Bass Amp Room Makes it Easy to Sound Great!

    by D. Ritthaler . 4 out of 5 stars

    Recording the bass guitar direct has always presented the most challenges. I've tried all manner of front end devices such as high end pre-amps, crossovers, compressors, and processors, but I would usually wind up resorting to using virtual instruments or outboard synths. However, Bass Amp Room makes it super easy to dial it in and now my Fender Jazz Bass achieves lively responsiveness and punchiness. I no longer have to sacrifice feel and I can get that fat sound that I was always missing. I highly recommend this for any project studio.

    Very usable

    by D. DiPietro . 4 out of 5 stars

    I can see where in straight up plug-n-play it's not stellar but when I treat it like my other mic'd up tracks it's very workable- LA-610_SVAP_STA800 then a touch on room from OWS. The OWS plugin definitely adds to the realism of the sound. the 800 gives it some bottom and running the 610 input hot adds a touch of saturation to the sound.
    All three amps in this configuration work well for me and that's basically what I do with real amp tracks. I really like the fact the amps are in a three-up configuration that you can switch between easily to compare.

    I'd give it 5 stars if it had a decent mic selection.

    Added mention for having to turn the bass down on the Fender when cranked- just like the real thing.

    Amazing feel

    by J. McNabb . 4 out of 5 stars

    Responds so well with pedals. Records flawlessly with my PT10. AB'd with some very skeptical guitar player friends and the amp room had them baffled and in most cases the amp room was the more desired tone. Have also used it live when my amp went down and the sound tech was amazed. A+

    Amazing isnt enough

    by S. Beckham . 4 out of 5 stars

    I love AmpRoom for the sound and real time Apollo power, but it needs to host other UAD plugs (ex)-EP34 ,as part of the preset instead of having to set that up later in my D.A.W sends to get the same exact sound.
    Left thinking ruins the creative flow..and every bit helps immensely when creating.
    I INSIST that UAD make a much faster preset menu!
    Quick scrolling of presets on ALL plugs i s NEEDED! NO more click/scroll/load, LAME!! When looking for a sound I wanna hit the down arrow on the keyboard and that's it..NEXT! UA..Please make better preset flow/speed, AND..
    Transfer of sounds from Console to Daw Drag and drop would do nicely here!!!
    Ideally having Amp room with FX inserted then dragged to my Daw would RULE!! As 4 all UAD plug

    Surprisingly good.

    by S. Hughes . 4 out of 5 stars

    I decided to take a chance and buy this bundle. I currently have a POD HD for guitar sounds, as well as a ferocious Marshall JCM900 stack out in the live room, as well as some terrific guitars.

    Every time I've tried a software amp package, I've been sucked in by the hype and bull that comes with the territory, only to be bitterly disappointed and out of pocket every time. You'd have to have shit in your ears to say that these things sound good.

    However, the Softube Amp Bundle has finally delivered. I've been using them instead of the Marshall or the POD HD. They're ugly boring looking plugs but the sound is solid.

    So great to have guitar amp plug ins that actually deliver. Only the REAL guitarists out there will know what I mean.

    Not as good as Amplitube.

    by R. Masters . 4 out of 5 stars

    I realy like how simple these amps are but I know this isn't the best amp sim out there. Amplitube is the best 1 I know of. You guys should get them on board.

    Ok I guess

    by S. Chapin . 4 out of 5 stars

    Metal plug has some useable stuff, but first impression on the vintage
    plugs is that none of them react very well to the guitars volume pot, especially the Marshall, which also sounds kinda buzzy.. UA is great at listening to their customers, so I'm confident they'll clean up the issues in subsequent releases, but I, like other reviewers here, also hope for the return of Nigel.
