I LOVE THIS!!! I own no bass amp but UA's SOFTUBE BASS AMP ROOM has easily become the realistic answer, This plug maybe a 64 bit (Logic) masterpiece!!! Bass guitar can be SO reasonable and SO important but we have something that is easily pro, real but reasonable AND cheapin price... Put this on your credit card and ENJOY!!!!

This plugin is SWEET! It is like getting up and walking into the live room and adjusting the guitar mic just a hair, and then walking back to the control room to hear how much better the guitar sounds in the track, without actually having to waste all that time walking back and forth! This plugin does not just emulate the "sound" of a particular amp, it emulates that amp in an acoustic environment with two microphones, and the freedom to create any sound you want from the resulting sonic palette. Time to create some epic tones!
I am puzzled by the negative reviews of this plugin! These models sound FANTASTIC! I am thinking the added dimension of mic placement is a new concept for some people, and they perhaps don't understand or appreciate how advanced these models truly are! This plug in allows you to create absolutely ORIGINAL guitar tones from the ground up, just like you would in a real studio environment. My hats off to the engineers at Softube!
I have a $1600 Vetta II head that sounds great live, but I have a hard time getting "The Sound" when trying to go direct. I spent almost 2 hours 1 day trying to get it even in the ball park with no luck when I remembered the last UAD software included a metal amp sim. I plugged directly into a Eureka mic pre and inserted metal shop and ..Wow! sounded almost exactly the way I spend hours "trying" to get my real amp to sound. And with just a little bit of tweaking it sounded amazing!! If you are a metal head, old scjool or new school, this will likely be your go to plug! Enough variation to make it personal but its not trying to be all things to all people which usually kills a product. It does one thing, but does it VERY well!
Bass is always tough to mix. Put too much, you get mud. Take it away, the bottom-end falls out. Add more treble, you get unwanted clicking sounds. Reduce the treble and there's no definition. I ended up getting the Softube Bass Amp Room because I was mixing a bass track in a busy song where the instrument needed to have its own voice among big drums, electric and acoustic guitars, vocals and a pair of analogue synths.
The fact that you have just one amp here does not limit what can be done tone-wise and bass is tricky since it has to fit in. The secret of getting there lies in Softube's clever way of allowing you to control and blend a combination of a carefully tailored direct tone and amp tone with three different speaker cab options.
Not only do they sound amazing but it feels like an amp is mic'd up in an iso booth. Way to go UA and Softube!
Outstanding plug in. This plug in rocks. Long overdue. Well worth the wait. Super practical and easy to use. Lots of fun. Gets everything rolling without much effort.
Great visuals and explanations. It really ROCKS!
Yay! finally we get a new Nigel - but is it as good?
See I would like Nigel on UAD2 cause its HOt! - like most UA stuff...
Anyway I've been using these "Softies" all night and they are mean!
I jammed for about an hour on my strat - lost all sense of time - fun fun fun!
I also inserted some plugs into a project and improved the whole mix as well!!
The "softies require subtle adjustments to get significant variation but its all there
Thanks UA - appreciate version 6.5 its a big improvement running 64 bit- goodbye 32 bit bridge that always drops out now and again...
(Not UAS fault).
I'm a happy UA camper - now all we need is some cool compressors with side chains and we're even better off!
Happy again :) we really need this. The most wickedest plug for a guitar amp. Love this thing.
The folks that produced this plug-in are ARTISTS. This is an exquisite and simple design that reaps tremendous benefits sonically and makes mix placement of the instruments going through it effortless.
Great plugin amp for every sound... clean, rock, heavy, funky, pop guitars. 5+
Great plugin for rock, blues, funky, pop bass. Excellent
thank you for creating this perfect bass amp ,it performs immeasureably clean or as required with the dash board configuration / multi cabinets .I link in the little labs v.o.g. bass resonance plug in to enhance the variables offering exceptional tonality and diversification .every one loves the blend with either midi or bass guitar .
uad is the finest engineering on the planet bar none
perfection at its finest

what is really interesting with this plugin is the use as 'distortion & enhancement'-box. it's nice to have so many different distortions to make a sound a little bigger, a little nastier, a little grittier, a little stronger, a little less dynamic, a little brighter, a little fatter, a little more focused.... i use it parralell for many sources
Once again great, they so just what they should. Sounds from the past to the present. Now once again get back to work with these wonderful tools! Thanks again Universal Audio.
i been waiting a lot to be able to buy me this little piece of art
now i cant live without, love the true sound of it
the softube vintage amp room is the finest issue available ,this trio performs fantastic offering a miriad of tonality and options beyond belief for the most generous sale price of $160 with no cheap gimmics like the competition ,just that great actual sound
thanks again uad /softube for this addition to my uad collection
Use it mostly with the apollo for tracking, the lack of latency when used this way is god send. Sometimes it stays on the track sometimes I swap it for Scuffam Amps or Amplitube. But its usefulness when tracking is worth the alone.
