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!
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!
Great plugin amp for every sound... clean, rock, heavy, funky, pop guitars. 5+
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
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.
SVAR has a very subtle but very pleasing tone that sits well in a mix. Exactly what one would expect from a quality amp simulator.
From SansAmp, to POD, to Guitar Rig, it's been a long journey that's always landed back at square one, with an amp and a microphone. But now the combination of UAD's low-latency Apollo converter and the Softube Vintage Amp Room has put amp-less guitar recording on a new level. The three simulated amps sound great and more importantly feel real.
The only little complaint I have is handling. The GUI still feels a bit sluggish. But based on my experience with UAD software, I'm sure this will be fixed soon in an update.
Brilliant plugin!! Has the dynamic and feel of playing some classic amps!!' Best so far.
