The IK Multimedia Ampeg SVX recreates the sounds, operation, and feel of bass amplifiers and brings it to your desktop. You will get the sounds of the SVT-CL, the B-15, the 4Pro and BA500, all in a convenient lightweight and easy-to-use package. Ampeg SVX is officially authorized software available that provides you with true-to-the-original Ampeg Bass tone. Ampeg SVX is divided into 4 main parts: Tuner, Pedalboard, Amp Head, and Cabinet / Mic / Room. The signal flow is similar to your hardware rig and the interface is quite familiar and intuitive.
Tuner is the first element in the signal chain beyond your interface and USB port, and it is not only digital for a large degree of accuracy, but chromatic as well. Next stop is the stellar collection of stomp-boxes designed specifically for bass. In this section you will find a selection of bass tone modifiers that add shimmer, tremble, and quake to your tones. These bass behemoths include the SCP-OD Bass Overdrive, the SCP-OCT Bass Octave, an Analog Chorus, Analog Delay, Envelope Filter, Bass Wah, Compressor and Volume Pedal.
The pedal-board can easily be configured and reconfigured via the ‘drag & drop’ feature, and you can assign knobs (parameters) to a controller like the StealthPedal with a simple right-click of the mouse. Ampeg SVX gives you 4 amplifier head models you can use: the SVT-CL (the Classic head), the B-15 PortaFlex Flip Top, the SVT-4Pro, and the BA500. They give a full, balanced range of bass tones.
Ampeg SVX offers 6 cabinet choices covering every possible usable bass cabinet situation including the SVT810E, the SVT410H, the BXT-410H, the B-15 Single 15.00”, the BA500 2 x 10”, and the PB2 x 12”. The mic section gives you 6 choices: 4 dynamic mics and 2 studio condensers.
