AmpliTube SVX is a must-have collection of gear for the bassist who appreciates pedigree. The Rolling Stones '69 tour. Early Van Halen to AC/DC to Dave Matthews Band. The Motown sounds and that fabulous "round” bass tone. The gear behind AmpliTube SVX defined – and continues to define – the sound of electric bass. We painstakingly captured every nuance of these deep-sounding amps to give you the same sounds that you've loved on countless recordings.
Funny story… during the first phase of testing with the original engineers, one particular software model was being driven so hard that it "shut down." Completely stopped working. But the lead engineer approved the model on the spot. You see, there was a slight design flaw in the actual amplifier that would cause a power fault shutdown if the amp was driven too hard for too long. The software model was so accurate that it even replicated this design flaw! Hear for yourself.
AmpliTube SVX features 18 models including 4 amps, 6 cabinets and 8 stomps, giving you the "Greatest Hits" amps, from the earth-shattering sound of Rock & Roll bass from the SVT – the Granddaddy of them all, to the smooth groove-making rolls of the B-15. The scooped edginess of the 4Pro. Plus a complete set of bass-specific pedals to give you unprecedented tone shaping options.
AmpliTube SVX gives you iconic bass gear with the same sound (and feel) you'd get from the real gear. You won't believe your ears – turn it up and you'll feel it in your chest, too.
