An iconic combo that changed the sound of blues/rock guitar.

From the first notes of John Mayall’s 1966 album, Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton, it was clear rock guitar would never sound the same. Clapton’s aggressive approach and singing, thick tone introduced the world to the glorious, cranked Marshall amp sound.

Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 plug-in is the first emulation of the legendary 2x12 combo used on this landmark session. Not only is it an expert emulation of this nearly unobtainable British classic, it also offers powerful multi-mic sounds to dial-in studio-perfect amp tones.

Now You Can:

Use your Apollo with Unison™ technology to track through the only authentic Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 emulation — with no latency

Re-amp previously recorded tracks with any UAD-2 hardware

Dial-in perfect studio amp tones with four mics and three different microphone combinations — FET, Valve, and Dynamic

Fine-tune your guitar tones with 50 presets by legendary AC/DC engineer Tony Platt

The Only True Bluesbreaker Emulation

The Only True Bluesbreaker Emulation

To model the legendary Bluesbreaker, Marshall loaned Softube’s engineers an original, all stock, Series 1 1962 combo — the exact type used on the historic Blues Breakers session. Valued at over $30,000, Softube thoroughly emulated the amp’s alnico speakers, tremolo circuit, and dual KT66 power section.

Classic Marshall Tones and More

Classic Marshall Tones and More

WIth its open-back cabinet and ability to “jump” the inputs to dial-in high-powered tube tones. the Bluesbreaker plug-in is capable of more than Clapton-esque grind. From chimey clean tones to rich, on-the-edge of breakup textures, the Bluesbreaker thrives in pop and country settings.

Voiced by a Legend

Voiced by a Legend

Producer/engineer Tony Platt has recorded some of the most quintessential Marshall tones ever committed to tape — most notably AC/DC’s landmark albums, Highway to Hell and Back in Black. Softube enlisted Platt to capture exquisite cabinet and microphone simulations using his Platinum-approved, tried-and-true mic recipes. You can choose from 50 Platt-designed presets, or craft your own tones.

Mix Between Three Expertly Placed Microphones

Mix Between Three Expertly Placed Microphones

Open up the plug-in’s Channel Strip section, and easily dial-in your sounds with Panning, global High/Low EQ, and Level control over each microphone, allowing precision fine-tuning — during tracking or mixdown. No matter the genre, or type of guitar, you’re afforded tons of tweakable options, from pin-point single miked tones to roars of glorious room ambience.

Unison™ Technology for Authentic Bluesbreaker Tones

Unison™ Technology for Authentic Bluesbreaker Tones

enfin un rai plug de simul d'ampli

utilisé en live via l'apollo twin, ce plug est vraiment bien foutu! j'ai quelques pédales en amont (drive, boost, fuzz, wha, etc ...) et je rentre dans le plugin vers un son clair,légèrement crunchy.
ce que j'adore c'est l'amplitude du son avec le potard de volume de ma telecaster, vraiment bluffant!
je note quand même que les preset sont très sourds, bizarre... et que le plug a tendance à saturer, donc bien faire gaffe au gain d'entrée.
l'utilisation en mix est très interessante également, les simuls de micros avec les options de panoramiques sont bien faites, bref, un gros son comme j'aime.
pour info, je ne suis pas métaleux, mais plus pop, funk, blues

Not bad

I love this amp so much I own 2 of them; one for the studio and one for live gigs. I could pick out the sound of these amps in my sleep. This emulation is pretty damn close, though the real amp is a bit richer in those awesome pre-clipping harmonics its known for (nothing beats real tubes IMO). While I've never been a fan of amp sims, this one surprised me. While I'll stick with the real thing, those who want the Bluesbreaker sound in a sim, you'll like this.

For all guitar work, except Glamrock.

This amps in Unison slot do make my kit complete, no hardware amp needed anymore more then live of course:-)
The plug is truly dynamic and works towards the guitar as the real thing.
To clear my review title, I use the Jubilee Amp for my Glamrock playing but for all else more contemporary stuff this 1962 does it completely amazingly!
One little thing I would have loved if the room mic could been routed to a separate input in my DAW, but I can live without it as the plugin is so great.

For Blues Sake...

I guess a purist who actually has one of these amps could tell the sim from the real thing. You won't. If you have a penchant for blues and rock and roll, this plugin brings it in spades. Within seconds, I was revisiting my youth banging out Yardbirds and Aerosmith first album like tones. The microphone emulations are incredible and really provide versatility to the sound. In conjunction with Neve 1073 in the unison channel, Ocean Way Studio and a little Echoplex and a smidge of the LA3 and you'll be blistering tracks well into the wee hours of the morning.....

Great Sound - Missing bypass pre amp feature!

A great sounding simulation BUT - where is the bypass pre amp feature from the ENGL amps?
This simulation is really a great one but real tube pre amps has still a greater dynamic range. Thats why the best results can be only achieved with the combination of real preamp and power amp, cabinet microphones simulation (at least in a neighbor friendly environment).
Its so sorry that SoftTube didn't provide one additional switch to turn of the preamp section ;(

Muy bueno!

Lo use para procesar algunas guitarras que tenia grabadas y el sonido es muy parecido al ampli original

Great sound, problematic harmonics

Sounds amazing, but there are definitely overtones that sound either a minor 6th or a 5th below the fundamental note. The other softube Amps do not have this problem. I hope it gets corrected since this is an excellent plugin for jazz and other deep tones.

Blues....

Sonido gordo y calido, gran posibilidad de microfoneo, se siente la "valvula" dando vueltas! Una buena imitacion para tener esa lead guitar de caracter.

Caution...hot!

Another gem in the UAD/Softube collection. Warmer and darker than any another Marshall, but super-dynamic and with tons of character. You can really get some beautiful Beano-like clean/crunch sounds controlling the saturation with your pick. It is probably the most “specific” plug-in of the Marshall Legend bundle, but it certainly delivers that Holy-Grail-Tone!

Incredible!

just so you know, Im not a guitarist but I recognise a good sounding virtual amp when I hear one.
I've gone back to some tracks, which some live guitar was played on, and the transformation the Bluesbreaker delivered, was incredible. It brought body, and a richness I would have found hard to get any other way. Also It's great with a Rhodes through it.
Highly recommend it.

Love it!

We've been doing a few recordings with it and everyone is really liking it. Being able to use it as a monitoring solution while keeping your options open for the final mix is very useful.

Best Modeled Amp I've Used

This feels the closest to a real amp of any sim I've tried yet. I even used it live a few days ago in place of an amp, and you couldn't tell in the house. Usually I feel the lack of connectivity between the guitar and a digital in, but whatever UA did with the unison preamps makes a big difference. In the studio environment the room mics make all the difference for rearing a real sound. Obviously it's not going to be identical to a real Bluesbreaker, but regardless of its accuracy to the original, it is the best sounding, and more importantly feeling, amp sim I've used.

Oh mama.....

Love this as much as JMP plug in. As a confirmed JMP and bluesbreaker veteran of 40yrs I never thought I would say this but I never thought I would use a digital version of my own plexi Marshall. So much easier and sounds just right Goldilocks.....

Hands down great tones!

Very life like and accurate emulation. Beats any other non-Unison plugin I have used. The sound can feel a bit withdrawn used with a strat but with a bit of EQ it cuts through better. The tremolo is quite subtle – but that is how it is on a real Bluesbreaker, too... All in all a very cool and versatile amp.

Very believable!

Look, it's not going to feel exactly like you're playing a real Bluesbreaker but once tracked and tweaked, it sounds veeerrry believable. I did a rough track just to test it out and sent it over to my bandmates for a lark. I have bandmates who are quite honest and harsh with comments and the fact that my recording of a guitar part using this plugin gets past them is a personal testament to how real it can sound.

Other positive findings include the ability to choose different mics which affect different tones achievable, the ability to jump the channels for more tones... And the biggest advantage of all- to achieve these tones at room volume. All-in-all, a great plugin. Can't wait for the Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe to go on sale.

Strange "undertones"

The core sound of this amp is really good, but once you start playing single notes and solo stuff, the strange things start to happen. Undertones that makes this plugin not that very useful to me. Too bad. Could have been a great one!

Best Amp Sim

I have tried a bunch of amp sims, and I love this one because of the bass response. I always feel like other amp sims always lack bass.
Thank you UA and Softube for making this available!

The heart & soul of my new blues project

Started playing with this plug and before I knew it I was writing new stuff, and the time flew by. It was like arriving at the studio to find your assistant had been up all night perfectly placing microphones for your session. When a friend (and fellow guitarist) came over I jokingly told him I had an amp set up in the spare room. All he said was "sounds sweet can I go see". I told him sure, and when he returned he asked if I had rooms in my apartment he wasn't aware of. Took me slightly longer to explain how I was getting that sound with a plugin! Unlike a lot of plugs that are complicated and things can go horribly wrong, this one makes a ton of great sounds and you just have to audition them and pick which great sound works best.

Fijne sounds mee te maken

Hele fijne sound. Ik kan het niet met een origineel vergelijken maar ik kan hier hele gave sound mee creëren. Absoluut een aanrader.
