Bass Amp Room was designed to handle all your bass amp needs, from dirty rock to modern clean. It consists of a model of a bass amplifier, three distinctive speaker cabinets with click-and-drag mics, and a blendable DI section with tone controls and a limiter.
Bass Amp Room has got everything you need to create a unique signature sound in no time. It's well thought out, and the high quality building blocks will help you produce a huge range of sounds. The Bass Amp Room is all about getting a sound you know you can trust, and getting it quickly.
These days, guitars are often delivered with inadequate drive for the nature of the part. My first choice for fixing that sort of problem is Vintage Amp Room, Metal Amp Room and Bass Amp Room. All of which distort great and give me a plethora of options and flexibility in terms of tone.

Although it was originally designed as a guitar amp, the 70's amp that has been modeled has proven to be an excellent choice for bass players. A thick and solid preamp distortion without any fizziness 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), which at extreme settings will give you all the dirt you can handle. 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.
Bass Amp Room is perfect when you need a little extra oomph. Add it to the DI track and blend it in.

There are three different cabinets in Bass Amp Room. The 8 x 10" is an industry standard for fat and solid bass tones with lots of low end and lots of definition. The 4 x 12" may be a good choice for rock sounds with its focused and hard sound. And lastly, while an open back 1 x 12" may not be the first cabinet choice that springs to mind for bass, this is something that works extremely well in the studio.
Many engineers like to blend in some DI signal from the bass in the mix, and to facilitate this we have added a DI section that does precisely that, and more - we also put in three tone controls and a limiter.
Recently I used Bass amp room on Lemmy [Kilmister]. I mean ya know....if this plug was heavy enough for Lemmy.....It's heavy enough for ANYONE!
