Available in a convenient desktop app and plug-in for your DAW, AmpliTube SVX 2 carefully replicates 3 new amps and matching cabs. IK’s latest Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ reproduce these amps’ unmistakable vibe and dynamics down to the finest nuances.
Bringing bass to all new highs
There's a special place in our hearts for this bass gear. AmpliTube SVX was our first opportunity to actually work and communicate directly with the engineers at a company making the gear we were modeling, helping bring our software to an all-new level.
That’s why for AmpliTube SVX 2, we wanted to show just what our newest techniques and technology could deliver. You’ll be blown away by the incredible fidelity that highlights just what makes these amps.
What’s included in AmpliTube SVX 2
AmpliTube SVX 2 features 3 amps with matching cabinets, all modeled using our most state-of-the-art technology for a new level of realism, detail and most importantly: tone.
Based on the Ampeg® SVT-VR, a vintage reissue of an early 1970’s “Blue-Line” SVT head. The preamp stage, power section, and even rocker switches emulate the exact signal path, tone, and vibe of the original rock ’n’ roll workhorse.
Based on the Ampeg® V-4B 100W all-tube bass head. A remarkable reissue of the legendary 1971 original, delivering the pure tube vintage sound, attitude and unmistakable grind that earned this classic amp a place in bass history.
Based on an Ampeg® Heritage B-15N, with distinct switchable 1964 and 1966 channels and flexible Baxandall type bass and treble EQ controls. Selectable cathode bias (1964) or fixed bias (1966) modes provide ultimate control over response and tone.
Powerful, tight and focused bass sound, the classic stack found on stages worldwide. It's everything you love about "The Fridge" in a vintage-inspired look that is both powerful and timeless.
A ported cabinet design that bridges the gap between the fast transient response to cut through mixes, and the rich low end you aim for. 2x12” custom Eminence® LF drivers and a 1” compression driver with a 3-way level control in a rugged cab.
The perfect companion of the SVX-15N. It features a 15” 300W speaker that delivers pure, full-bodied and vintage-sounding tone, reminiscent of the good old ‘60s and that suits most musical genres both in the studio and on stage.
Groundbreaking Modeling Technology
For the AmpliTube SVX 2, we used our latest Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ to deliver the highest level of ultra-realistic sound when modeling this gear. The product of 20 years’ experience modeling analog gear, DIM™ models the behavior of EVERY component in the circuit all the way down to its smallest nuance and character. IK models have set the industry standard evidenced by our co-branding recognition from the most influential partners in the industry such as Fender®, Orange®, Soldano® and many more.
Applied to this iconic bass gear, the result is the same sound (and feel) you’d get from the real gear. You won’t believe your ears – turn it up and you’ll feel it in your chest, too.
