Plugin Alliance has released the Ampeg SVT-VR Classic plug-in. The plug-in, which is officially endorsed by Ampeg, brings one channel of the famed bass head to your DAW. And here’s the kicker: For the first 30 days, you can get it for free! That’s what they call a no brainer.
Plugin Alliance Ampeg SVT-VR Classic
The new Ampeg SVT-VR Classic plug-in is designed to be a lighter version of the developer’s full SVT-VR emulation. It focuses on the essentials by stripping away the first channel, leaving only channel 2. Plugin Alliance says that this gives you “stunning simplicity and ease of use”.
Despite being a stripped-down version, SVT-VR Classic uses the same Brainworx IR technology as the full SVT-VR plug-in. You get a single channel with ultra-hi and ultra-lo modes, as well as volume, treble and bass controls. That should make it easy to dial in powerful bass sounds very quickly.
Also included is an FX rack with a noise gate, a couple of filters, Power Soak saturation and a horn on/off function for the cabinets. There’s an input gain control for perfect gain staging. According to Plugin Alliance, the plug-in also offers three boutique recording chains from Brainworx.
Ampeg SVT-VR Classic looks like a great option for when you don’t need all the bells and whistles of the full-blown Ampeg SVT-VR emulation. And best of all, you can now add it to your collection for free. It’s Plugin Alliance’s way of thanking its customers for their support in these challenging times. Thanks, Plugin Alliance!
