OUR PART # AMP-ROOM-BUNDLE
The Softube Amp Room Bundle is a collection of plugins brought together in a single bundle to offer you plenty of amplifier simulations without having to juggle through multiple different plugins. This bundle includes Softube's Vintage Amp Room, Metal Amp Room, and Bass Amp Room plugins.
Vintage Amp Room
Straightforward and simple, Vintage Amp Room emulates three great guitar amps in a complete studio set-up with speaker cabinets and fully flexible microphone positioning. It’s easy to use for live performances and recordings, as well as for re-amping and last-minute tweaking.
Amp Room has none of the added gadgets or weird-sounding presets sometimes found in simulation software. Focusing on quality and accuracy, it simulates three amps, with sounds that are timeless and authentically raw. The goal is not to give you a pre-produced, ultimate guitar sound, but to provide you with the ultimate tool to create your own. Because after all, only you know exactly what sound you want.
White is based on an all-round great amp that set the industry standard for classic, distorted rock n’ roll sounds. The genius is its simplicity. It's stripped down to the bare essentials – all tubes, only one channel, and no reverb or any other built-in effects. Sound-wise, it goes from mad screaming preamp shred, to warm, speakers-about-to-break power amp distortion. Perfect when you need a characteristically distorted edge and a powerful roar.
Brown is based on one of the most versatile amplifiers in music history. It’s been used in all kinds of genres, and for all kinds of instruments, thanks to a sound that is clean, crisp and clear, but also warm, thick and punchy. Brown can produce anything from the clearest country-style sound for steel guitars to a dirty, bluesy guitar noise. It works for both funky rhythms and bassy, mellow chords. It's got a notoriously warm sound with a massive bass and a shimmering treble. Versatility embodied, it can do more or less whatever you want it to.
Green is packed with character and produces a pleasant guitar sound with warm yet intense power amp distortion. Its edginess makes it shine through in mixes, without drowning out other instruments. Green is based on a very adaptable three-channel amp model. All three channels sound fantastic, but if you want to add a little quirkiness, we especially recommend the vibrato/tremolo one. The original amp has been widely used during the last forty years, from classic pop recordings in the 60’s, through to today’s users, playing mostly independent and alternative rock.
Metal Amp Room
Metal Amp Room was designed to bring you the most brutal, evil and aggressive sound that is possible to squeeze out of your DAW. It was co-developed with Patrik Jensen (The Haunted) and tailored to his needs. The continuous mic placement from Vintage Amp Room is back, but this time with twin mics with adjustable stereo panning. Get a huge stereo sound with complex adjustable phasing effects, a plain old one-mic-right-against-the-cone, or anything in between. The cabinets were measured in the In Flames studio (previously known as Studio Fredman) by Tue Madsen and Patrik Jensen.
Focusing on usability and sound quality, this is a plug-in that is proud not to include a gazillion amps, effects racks, patch cords, or a blow- dryer. Just two channels, two cabinets, two mics per cabinet, and a wickedly fast noise gate for palm mute galore. Every setting is a setting that will sound good, so it's almost impossible to get a useless sound. Metal Amp Room is a real workhorse, a plug-in that will handle all your metal needs without ever getting in your way.
Program-Dependent One-Knob Gate
The gate in Metal Amp Room will automatically analyze your playing. Fast playing will give you an extremely fast gate, while slow playing will yield a slower closing gate. Regardless of playing style, the gate will always react instantaneously and open up faster than any hardware gate, without adding any latency to the signal.
Double mics on double cabs
Both cabinets have two mics each, one dynamic and one condenser. Fully flexible mic positioning, link mic functionality and realistic room resonance modeling will give you just the result you need, and much more.
Intuitive Stereo Control
The Balancing Stereo Preamp will always keep your guitar signal focused, while giving you easy access to the features you want to use. While keeping the guitar signal centered, you can easily monitor each mic, change the stereo width of the signal, and dial in the sound that you want.
Bypass Amp or Cabinet
By popular demand Softube has added the possibility to bypass either the amp sim or the cabinet simulation to version 1.1. The most straight-forward use of this feature is to use the amp simulation together with your favorite real-life guitar cabinet, or to use the cabinet simulations together with the line-out signal from your amplifier.
Tue Madsen Signature Presets
Metal Amp Room is now featuring presets containing Tue Madsen's favorite settings from his time with Metal Amp Room and his work with Engel, Heaven Shall Burn, Dagoba, Hatesphere, Ektomorf, and Sirenia among others.
The names of all the new presets start with TM (as in "Tue Madsen"). Tue uses the bass presets in conjunction with a clean DI:d signal, and blends between a clean signal and the distorted Metal Amp Room signal.
Bass Amp Room
Bass Amp Room was designed to handle all your bass amp needs, from dirty rock to modern clean, keeping two equally important goals in mind. The first was to give the user the best possible sound quality. The latter was to create an intuitive plug-in which allows for a really fast work flow. Time is money, but cutting down on time shouldn't mean you have to accept poor results.
Bass Amp Room consists of a model of a classic bass amplifier, three distinctive speaker cabinets with click-and-drag mics, and a blendable DI section with tone controls and a limiter. That's it. And it's all you need to create a unique signature sound - the strength lies in the ease of use of the individual blocks and the huge range of sounds these can produce when combined.
In short, Bass Amp Room is all about getting a sound you know you can trust, and getting it quickly, from a plug-in you don't need a degree in computer science to handle.
Authenic Amp Modeling
Although being designed as a guitar amp, this 70s amp has proven to be an excellent choice for bass players. A thick and solid preamp distortion without any fizz lets you crank it up without losing the low end. The power amp has a more traditional power amp distortion (controlled by the Master Volume knob), but at extreme settings it will start to sound more ... erhm... broken.
The High/Low switch wasn't a part of the original amp, but was added to give you a cleaner and fatter sound when necessary.
Separate D.I. Controls
The D.I. is separate from the amp and cabs, and allows you to tailor the direct signal separately from the amped signal, just like in real life. The tone controls are specially designed for bass and are extremely fast to work with.
The one knob limiter tames the transients in the direct bass signal.
Blend Amp and D.I.
The possibility to blend the D.I. signal with the amp signal allows you to get a huge range of sounds. For instance, set the amp on a really distorted signal, and blend in some low end from the D.I.
