Legendary Bass Tones

now in AmpliTube Custom Shop

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.

So accurate it even shut down

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.

intro

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!

Based on the Ampeg® SCP-OD Overdrive pedal. It recreates the original distortion circuit, adding upper octave harmonic content to the direct signal to create a unique overdrive effect.

SVX-OCT

Based on the Ampeg® SPC-OCT Octaver pedal. Moving the octave knob will double your direct signal one octave below the direct signal, making your melodic lines richer and fuller, and expanding the frequency range.

Analog Chorus

A model of a classic analog Chorus/Vibrato. In Chorus mode the modulation is lush and slow, and in Vibrato the modulation is faster and more noticeable.

Analog Delay

This model is based on a classic analog delay with modulation stomp pedal.

Bass Wah

Compressor

This effect is modeled after a vintage compression stomp pedal and can deliver a strong sustain and powerful compression with lots of character.

Envelope Filter

A highly developed filter effect, this uses the envelope of the incoming signal to control a synthesizer-style filter. The sound palette’s range of this virtual unit is wide and rich.

Volume

A traditional volume pedal.

Groundbreaking Modeling Technology

There's a special place in our history for this project. You see, it was our first opportunity to actually work and communicate directly with the engineers at a company making the gear we were modeling. In retrospect, this project was really ahead of its time

Today, IK is more than a pioneer in the digital tone generation and analog gear modeling field. With unique technologies like DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling), VRM™ (Volumetric Response Modeling) IK models have set the industry standard evidenced by co-branding recognition from the most influential partners in the industry such as Fender, Orange, Soldano, T-Rex, Jet City and many more.
