stompboxjon's review"Took my bass to a new level"

IK Multimedia Ampeg SVX
The Ampeg SVX Plug In comes with 4 modules; tuner, amp, cabinet/mic, and stomp. There are also 6 mic models, 24 bass amp combinations and 8 analog modeled stomps. This is one of the best plug ins that I have ever worked with for my bass. They quality of the amps/models are amazing. This is a must have for anyone who is a producer and engineer for bass tracks.


Installing these plug ins where pretty quick and easy the only issue is that I was experiencing some crashing with some of the amps and then Ampeg would not give much support on the issue because they said “They no longer make these plug in”. So be very wary of that, this had me very upset because I feel like they should have at least helped me trouble shoot. I was not sure if the person on the phone really knew what they were talking about or not. I eventually had to uninstall and reinstall everything to get it back to normal.


My favorite cabinets are the SVT-410H and the BA-500, these are the two that I use the most and I love the sound they create. These cabinets give me the best bass out of most any of the plug ins that I own or have even used.
IK Media also makes another plug in called “Metal Studio” which is also a great plug in, though it doesn’t feel like it has as many options as the SVX plug in does. The price of the Ampeg SVX was very reasonable when it first came out and that was the reason that I purchased it. I ended up falling in love with the sound it gave to my bass tracks, it really helped them stand out in the mix and sound full and rich as opposed to thin and dry. It really took me to another level!

No problem, easy.

Important use of CPU, damage ...
Not a bad choice for a lot of sounds is well trs.
But in the words of a collgue below, the sound loses momentum, gives a rough draft. I use it only for three days, so it's a little short to see if it's a big problem. Indeed, it is possible in the mix this sense of loss disappears in favor of the ct "his pro" software.
It is also certainly possible that I need a few weeks and some mix to optimize the software ...!

RAS installation simple and efficiently
lack a TDM version for speed
configuration at top efficiency and simple


Motherboard P4P800, P4 2.8 GB 1.5 GB of ram ..... mix and 2 core

it works perfectly but is a super intensive pross 50%

his performance at Euro 300 places I do not know how to buy amp then yes was great

my configuration is quite stable but I think we can do better


I use it for 3 weeks

as has the fact to have everything at hand was not the least tdm

I did not try anything else for low because I looked for days and days for gt and I came across his older brother who charmed us

as I said buy 2 or 3 ampeg was expensive so that for 300 euros you have the amp but I would recommend a small ditto prior history of a heated tip can

I would do is really choice but ditto with the front or a Brick not need an avalon or other costly 89 euros occasion ditto to us (postage included)
