WNAMM13: Powered Plug-Ins For Guitar Recording

Universal Audio (UA) has announced the debut of Softube's Vintage Amp Room, Metal Amp Room, Bass Amp Room, and Acoustic Feedback Deluxe plug-ins for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo High-Resolution Audio Interface.

UA says that, with the addition of renowned Softube Amp Room plug-ins to the UAD platform, owners of UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware now have industry-leading guitar and bass amp modeling at their fingertips. And, when used with the Apollo Audio Interface, the Softube Amp Room plug-ins allow musicians and producers to jam, write, and record through stunning guitar or bass sounds with near-zero latency.

Softube Product Manager, Niklas Odelholm, told us, "We're delighted to see our very popular Amp Room products finding their way to the UAD platform. They are a perfect match for Apollo, where you can use Amp Room for directly recording guitar, bass, electric pianos, and other instruments through these world-class amplifiers."

UA CEO and Founder Bill Putnam, Jr. added, "It's extraordinary to have Softube onboard as a UAD Direct Development partner. The Amp Room plug-ins are truly best-in-class, and will put some very inspiring tools in the hands of UAD and Apollo users."
