Softube’s Amp Room brings a dream studio to the virtual realm
Including some official Marshall gear.
Softube has announced its latest collection of virtual amplifiers, cabinets and stompboxes with Amp Room’s signal-chain building centres around four types of blocks: Amplifiers, Cabinets, Pedals and Utilities. While the first three are somewhat self-explanatory, Utilities includes DAW-style inserts such as multi-band and shelving EQ, phase inversion and stereo panning.
There are six amplifiers, including officially licenced Marshall models, alongside 16 cabinets and ten stompboxes. The cabinets were recorded by Danial Bergstrand, known for his work with Meshuggah and In Flames, as well as on Superior Drummer’s sample pack. For more
To get your sound off the ground, Softube has loaded amp room with a whopping 260 presets, but of course, there’s a lot of room for mixing and matching gear yourself. Softube says that Amp Room will allow producers to become “the master of puppets, mixing and matching all the gear you need to create mix-ready tones just like you do in a physical studio.” And, thanks to the utility modules and compatibility with other Softube plugins, “you can also process other sound sources, such as drums, vocals, and synth tracks. All the gear you chose from your visit to that luxury studio is configured to your exact specifications and ready to use.”
Launching alongside Amp Room is its first expansion, the Marshall Cabinet Collection. As the name implies, this adds eight “classic, rare and hand-wired” speaker cabinet emulations, licensed by Marshall.
